    He'll likely go to a Patriots, IMO.

    This is a poor opinion, but there is something about TJ Ward I do not like, and have never liked. Good player, but always thought his mouth was bigger than his game.

    Gotta be a reason he is getting cut when Denver HEAVILY relies on defense to win games.

    That being said my aversion to the Cardinals looking at this guy is pretty weak, so if it happens I would not complain, just would not be excited either.

    How is Ward's game any different than Bethea?

    Ward sniffs out plays like a cat. He's a finisher and a hard hitter. Bethea is slower now and not the reliable tackler he once was. Plus, Bethea is average at best in coverage. Ward makes his presence felt in ways that few safeties can.

    you mean besides him being younger, faster, better tackler and having better coverage abilities?

    We still have a good deal of cap room. If we're always looking to upgrade the team, this would be a spot to do it.

    Personally I've been very impressed with Branch at SS

    Broncos have cut him, but he might be starting for some team next week.

    Someone else will sign him. He's not an aging back or some obscure player that catches Keim's eye, Meanwhile Seattle trades for Richardson, as if their defense couldn't get any stronger.

    I'd much rather have him then Bethea. We'd also get something back if he left.

    Ward signed with TB this morning, one year @ $5M. Jason Light, GM. Let me ask the board this: which team is a better team right now, the Cardinals or the Bucs? It's the Bucs.

    Paper tigers until they prove it. 40-7 just last year says Cards are the better team. This year's game might be a different story. We'll see!

    Based on what? Paper... speculation, you might be right, but we'll have to wait until the games are played to be sure.

    Ward obviously went for the money. It seems as though players are more interested in getting paid than winning a championship. As for who's better between the Cards and Bucs, the Bucs offense is average at best. As inconsistent as our offense was last season, we were still 9 spots better in all aspects last season and let's not forget we kicked them all over the field last year and that was before getting spanked by Buffalo and then losing to the Rams.
