Broncos release safety TJ Ward

Posted: Updated:

The Denver Broncos have broken up the "No Fly Zone," releasing three-time Pro Bowl strong safety T.J. Ward with a year left on his contract. General manager John Elway said cutting the eighth-year pro was a difficult decision.
Ward set a nasty tone for Denver's defense as a founding member of the "No Fly Zone" secondary that includes Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr., Darian Stewart and Bradley Roby.
Ward was due $4.5 million this year in the final season of his four-year, $22.5 million contract he signed in 2014. The Broncos will eat about $1.3 million in dead money from his prorated signing bonus. Second-year pro Justin Simmons has stood out in place of Ward, who missed most of training camp and all of the preseason with a torn hamstring.
