Detroit Lions Rumors: Safety T.J. Ward Good Fit at the Right Price
The Detroit Lions have shown some very solid interest in budding free agent safety T.J. Ward. After becoming the third best player at his position while playing for the floundering Cleveland Browns, Ward would be a solid addition for the Lions, as long as he doesn’t break the bank.
Ward is the second-rated safety on the market which could potentially jack up his price tag. However, wanting out of Cleveland quickly may help tip the scales a bit. When the Lions released Louis Delmas, who was recently signed by the Miami Dolphins, a clear spot opened up for a coverage safety.
Also, for those of you following the Twitter world’s way of predicting free agency moves, Ward recently followed the Lions’ Glover Quin. I only point this out because this is a little bit how the Reggie Bush signing went last year. There were rumblings about the possibility of Bush coming to the Lions, then Matthew Stafford followed him on Twitter, then Bush was signed.
Not the best way of predicting the future you say? You might be right, but it’s worth noting considering Quin was acquired last year as well by the Lions through free agency and would likely be side-by-side with Ward on the field if he were to become the Lions’ new safety.
Ward could bring some deep coverage capabilities to the Lions, which they desperately need. With rumors out there suggesting that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Darrelle Revis will hit the market, that could also help to drop the asking price of Ward. Regardless, the Lions need to keep cap space in order to sign a solid second receiver. If they do add Ward, they might still be able to grab a guy like the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Emmanuel Sanders.
