Bleacher Report By Cecil Lammey
The Denver Broncos were quite active in free agency earlier this year. The language of the NFL is money, and the Broncos spoke loudly and often when the free-agency period began.
No statement is bolder than their first move right out of the gate. The Broncos added T.J. Ward to change the identity of their defense. They needed more toughness on the defensive side of the ball, and that’s why Ward was an early target. Already this season, Ward is making a huge impact for the Broncos.
Ward looks forward to playing every snap.
“I’m used to playing every snap. I’ve played pretty much, probably most of the snaps my whole career, so it’s nothing new,” he said. “I’m not going to lie, getting used to the altitude has been a little bit more difficult. But I’m going to get in better shape throughout the season.”
