Denver Broncos part ways with Pro Bowl Safety T.J. Ward

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.

Browns cut Brock Osweiler, Broncos serve him a 1-year deal

The Denver Broncos and Brock Osweiler are once again an item.

Just days after being cut by the Cleveland Browns, Osweiler re-signed with the that drafted him in 2012 but failed to retain his services in 2016.

Osweiler spent his latest season with the Houston Texans where he had an absolutely dismal year.

The Browns will still have to pay $16 million of Brock’s salary, meaning the Broncos are paying next to nothing for their former pivot.

Osweiler will serve as backup quarterback to starter Trevor Siemian for Denver this season.

Current Broncos general manager and former star quarterback John Elway discusses the acquisition:

“When Brock made that decision [to sign with Houston], he made the best decision that he thought was best for him,” Elway told reporters Saturday night. “It’s just kind of funny how these things worked out with our situation and Brock being available — funny how everything aligned. We know that Brock can win football games with us, he’s got a lot of experience and that was one glaring hole we had at that time in my mind when Paxton [Lynch] hurt the shoulder. We’re able to get it fixed.”

Will Super Bowl 50 indeed by Peyton Manning’s last rodeo?

Those were the words that came out of the star quarterback’s mouth when he thanked Bill Belichick after winning the AFC Championship game just two weeks ago.

NFL media insider Ian Rapoport reported that other people close to Manning have said that he plans to ‘walk away’ after the outcome of Super Bowl 50.

It would be a storybook ending if Manning could go out on top by capturing his second Super Bowl title on Sunday.

However, that will not be an easy task when matched up against a stellar Carolina Panthers squad.

If it is the last time we see Peyton Manning, we will be saying goodbye to one of the Top 5 best quarterback’s to ever step foot on an NFL field.

Manning is a legend and guaranteed to be a first-ballet Hall of Famer.

The Denver Broncos defeated the New England Patriots by a final score of 20-18 on Sunday afternoon and will now play the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

Denver cornerback Bradley Roby saved the game in the final seconds of the fourth quarter, this by picking off a Tom Brady pass during a 2-point conversion try that would have tied the game.

Peyton Manning played well in yesterday’s AFC Championship game. The 39-year-old veteran quarterback completed 17 of 32 pass attempts for 176 yards and 2 touchdowns in the win.

Denver tight-end Owen Daniels hauled in both of Manning’s touchdown passes and finished the game with 33 yards receiving.

Denver’s star linebacker Von Miller recorded 2.5 sacks and 1 interception in the win.

The Denver Broncos will now meet the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday February 7.
