With Saturday’s deadline for team’s to have rosters trimmed down to 53 players, could the Los Angeles Rams show interest in T.J. Ward if he’s cut by the Denver Broncos?

By the end of Saturday, the Los Angeles Rams will have their 53-man roster in place for the 2017 NFL season after weeks of going through training camp and preseason. However, when it comes to certain players to keep an eye who were released from other teams, safety T.J. Ward is a player to monitor.

The Denver Broncos informed the Pro-Bowl safety that he has been released from the team, and as frustrating as this may sound on Ward’s end, at least there are numerous teams who already seem to be showing interest in bringing him on board for the 2017 NFL season. And believe it or not, the Rams appear to be one of those teams who seem to be expressing interest in Ward now that he’s become available.

Based off how the defense has looked at times during the preseason, there’s no question the addition of a Pro Bowl safety like Ward could work wonders for Los Angeles. Not to mention, Ward has previously worked with new Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, so a reunion between the two could be even more beneficial.
