Broncos agree to deals with cornerback Talib, safety Ward

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos spent the first day of free agency bolstering their defensive backfield, agreeing to a four-year deal with Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward on Tuesday and then hours later reaching an agreement on a six-year contract with cornerback Aqib Talib.
Talib and Ward will play in a secondary that will be without Champ Bailey, who was released last week, and may be moving on from Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who entered free agency without a new deal from the Broncos.
Ward had 129 tackles and two interceptions for Cleveland last year.
Talib was a shutdown corner for New England in 2013. He hurt his knee early in the AFC Championship against Denver when he was bumped by Wes Welker on a crossing route.
