The Denver Broncos have released veteran safety T.J. Ward according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Ward was set to make a non-guaranteed $4.5 million this upcoming NFL season.
The two-time Pro Bowl safety recorded three interceptions and five forced fumbles during his 41 games with the Broncos.
“This was a difficult decision to part ways with T.J. after everything he’s done for our football team,” general manager John Elway said in a statement. “He was a respected teammate whose attitude and physical mindset played a big part in our Super Bowl run. We thank T.J. for his contributions as a Bronco and wish him nothing but the best in the future.”
The 30-year-old, Ward, will likely find a new home before the start of the 2017-2018 season, as teams have already begun to express interest.
