The Denver Broncos signed former Cleveland Browns safety T.J. Ward on Tuesday night.

Broncos General Manager John Elway announced the move on Twitter.

The four-year deal with the 27-year-old second-round draft pick is worth $23 million with $14 million guaranteed.

There has been some concern about whether Ward, who is 5-foot-10 and weighs 200 pounds, can physically meet the demands of the hard-hitting game. The Broncos said their goal in the off-season was to get more physical on defense after their embarrassing 43-8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the SuperBowl.
