Detroit Lions Continue to be Linked to T.J. Ward


Are the Detroit Lions on the cusp of landing a coveted free agent as soon as the new league year begins this afternoon? If they are, it may be with safety T.J. Ward. He was linked to the Lions over the weekend and that has only continued as the day of the official opening of free agency has arrived.

If you’re looking for a little more smoke before we see the fire, there’s always twitter follower lists. Those that watch those sorts of things noticed a connection between Matthew Stafford and Reggie Bush last offseason. Now we see that T.J. Ward is newly following Glover Quin.

A meaningless detail? Perhaps, but worth noting considering Ward is the player most linked to the Lions during this legal tampering window before the official start of free agency.
