The Denver Broncos are taking calls on Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Tuesday.
Ward has been with the Broncos since 2014. He spent the first four seasons of his career with the Browns starting in 2010, where he made his first Pro Bowl in 2013.
The Oakland Raiders might have been in that AFC Championship Game if not for a late-season injury to star quarterback Derek Carr. Both Carr and Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota went down with season-ending leg injuries in Week 16, but both are now back healthy and set to help lead their teams in another step forward. Tennessee hosts Oakland as a 1.5-point favorite on Sunday.
Sunday’s card is also loaded with some intriguing rivalry games including Seattle at Green Bay (-3), Baltimore at Cincinnati (-3), and a Sunday Night Football matchup of the New York Giants at Dallas (-3.5).
Because of some injuries at the position last season, Shepard was forced into a bigger role on offense with the Bucs and showed that he was ready for prime time. His numbers still weren’t eye popping, but he did end up with 23 catches and two touchdowns, with four starts in 14 Cheap Kids NFL Jerseys games. For a guy Cheap Kids NFL Jerseys who probably didn’t think he would see the field much at the beginning of training camp last year, I have to think he was happy to get those opportunities.
Looking at his film, I came away even more Cheap Lions Jerseys impressed because Shepard did good work even when the ball wasn’t coming to him. That dude is a really good route runner with more speed than I thought. He was putting defenders in a blender out there.
