T.J. Ward Reportedly Drawing Interest From A Lot of Teams

If the Browns let T.J. Ward hit the free agent market on March 11, they will have a tough time getting him back.

On the same day that Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer reported that the Cleveland Browns have not reached out to the agent of free safety Jairus Byrd, other reports are coming out that a lot of teams are interested in strong safety T.J. Ward. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun says "about a dozen NFL teams have expressed interest or inquired about Ward."

Besides the Browns, two of the teams who have been specifically listed as having an interest in Ward are the Detroit Lions and the Denver Broncos:

The Lions aren't bringing Louis Delmas back, so they have a definite need for a safety. In Denver, Tom Heckert could be a factor in trying to lure Ward (plus, the prospects of competing for a Super Bowl wouldn't hurt). Some have also wondered whether Ward might be interested in joining Chip Kelly in Philadelphia due to the Oregon connection.
