Now that the NFL schedule is out, the Denver Broncos and new starting safety T.J. Ward are getting ready to be primetime players. For Ward, it will be a new feeling.
“I haven’t played too many primetime games in my career, so I’m definitely excited to get on that primetime stage,” Ward told DenverBroncos.com. “You see who you’re playing, you’ve got friends on different teams, so you make some phone calls and talk a little trash here and there, but I’m definitely looking forward to this season.”
With the addition of Ward, the Broncos are hoping to put a more physical product on the field on defense this season.
“I think it just comes natural,” Ward said about his physical style of play. “I’ve always kind of been this way since I started playing. It’s a mindset, a mentality, and that’s just the way I have to approach it. Whatever is your strong suit, you have to work at it and if you want to be the best, you keep working, keep working, but I think it’s just something that I’ve been blessed [with]. It comes natural.”
