Safety doesn’t quite define all that T.J. Ward does for the Broncos. He’s one of the NFL’s best run stopping players at his position. He’s a solid cover man against tight ends and running backs. And increasingly he’s become a menace for opposing quarterbacks with his pass rush.
After his huge game Sunday in an 27-19 victory over San Diego, Ward joked that he’s fine with a position name change if it comes with a few more dollars. No matter the position, he’s playing the best football of his career at age 29.
