Buccaneers to sign TJ Ward to one-year contract

The Bucs don't have a significant financial obligation to any of their current safeties - Conte signed a two-year, $5-million deal that included $2.75-million guaranteed; Wilcox signed a two-year, $6.25-million deal with $3.125-million guaranteed.

The news has been reported by multiple outlets, including ESPN's Adam Schefter and the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

When Denver came to Tampa previous year and beat the Bucs 27-7, Ward played a key role, getting four tackles and forcing a Charles Sims fumble when the Bucs were at the Denver 26 and driving for a tying touchdown in the second quarter.

Still, unless we hear conflicting reports from some other source, we should maybe consider this transfer on the shelf for now. Pochettino is an admirer of the Portugal global and the Telegraph claim Spurs are closing in on a loan move for Gomes.

Ward had one more year left on his contract and his agent had discussions with the Broncos, but the team ultimately made a decision to move on and elevate second-year safety Justin Simmons to the starting role. Ward will compete with rookie Justin Evans and offseason addition J.J. Wilcox in the Buccaneers' depth chart.

Chris Conte and Keith Tandy, the two returning players at the position, are expected to start the season opener against the Miami Dolphins next Sunday.

Ward played his first four National Football League seasons with the Cleveland Browns after they selected him with the No. 38 pick in the second round of the 2010 National Football League draft out of Oregon. He picked off Carolina's Cam Newton in Super Bowl 50 two seasons ago to help Denver win a championship.

Until then, deliveries will be intermittent and dependent upon supplies from refineries and storage terminals. A crucial artery in the nation's fuel supply network, it provides almost 40 percent of the south's gasoline.

Ward, 30, is a three-time Pro Bowler and has been highly effective for the Broncos during his time in Denver.

Ward missed two games last season due to injury and finished 2016 with 87 tackles, one pick, one sack and two fumble recoveries.

Chelsea signs Torino defender Zappacosta
Meanwhile, BT Sport pundit James Horncastle says the signing of the 25-year-old seems like a panic buy by the London club. The 25-year-old was a regular in Torino's starting line-ups after arriving from Atalanta in July 2015.
