Free Agency 2014: Lions, Jets and Broncos reportedly interested in T.J. Ward

The Bengals don't figure to join the bidding war for Browns safety T.J. Ward at the moment.

There were 12 teams interested in Cleveland Browns free agent T.J. Ward, at last count. One of those teams mentioned were the Detroit Lions, who had released Louis Delmas earlier in the offseason.

More teams are now being mentioned.

According to Manish Mehta, Ward is on the New York Jets' "Persons of Interest" list.

The Denver Broncos are also expected to pursue Ward, according to Mike Klis with the Denver Post.

The Broncos are going to attempt to upgrade the position. They are expected to pursue Cleveland strong safety T.J. Ward when the free-agent market opens Tuesday. They also have expressed interest in Detroit safety Louis Delmas, while the Pro Bowl likes of Jairus Byrd and Donte Whitner also are available.

Denver has roughly $25 million in cap space available for a player that ESPN analyst Bill Polian believes will make anywhere from $2-6 million annually, with two years guaranteed.

Much more of a strong than free safety, Ward plays the run with aggression and consistency. He also does a fine job in coverage, although handling a deep zone can make him look out of place at times.
