The Denver Broncos cut a key defensive leader, safety T.J. Ward, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Denver tried to shop Ward in the week leading up to his release, but no trade partners materialized.
The departure of Ward will be felt in the Broncos’ locker room. Von Miller said this week that he hoped the team wasn’t actually planning to move on from the three-time Pro Bowler.
Along with his retirement, Dickerson got another honor, this one a ceremonial front office role as vice president of business development.
The Rams’ announcement to sign Dickerson to the one-day contract comes after last year’s drama between him and Jeff Fisher, where Dickerson claimed that Fisher did not want him on the sidelines.
“Someone with the Rams told me I’m not wanted on sidelines at games, that what I’ve said makes the players uncomfortable,” Dickerson said.
Fisher had denied the report, saying, “He’s always welcomed, yeah. I’d welcome him in the building,” Fisher said. “I’d love to have him come in. I’d love to have him come to practice. I’d love to have him in come in the meetings. Eddie George has been in my meetings more than Eric Dickerson has. I’d love to have him here.”
