ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The Denver Broncos have revamped their defensive secondary by agreeing to a deal with Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward on Tuesday.
Ward is coming off a season in which he had 129 tackles and two interceptions for the Cleveland Browns.
General manager John Elway called Ward a "young, explosive strong safety who is going to bring a lot of energy and toughness to our secondary." The Broncos struggled at safety last season, especially after losing Rahim Moore, who underwent emergency surgery to fix a blood-flow problem in his lower left leg in November.
Earlier in the day, Denver brought back one of Peyton Manning's targets, agreeing to a two-year deal with receiver Andre Caldwell.
Eric Decker, one of Manning's go-to receivers, is a free agent.
