In a question and answers session with Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland, a fan asked about T.J. Ward and would the Browns be willing to keep him.
Hey Tony: The hire of Mike Pettine seems to have been fairly well received from the fans, and the storm of negativity and backlash has calmed somewhat. The great majority of comments from Browns fans seem to be very much in favor of re-signing T.J. Ward. I don’t think Haslam and Banner need the outrage that is going to come from not retaining a Pro Bowl safety entering his physical prime. Do you think they understand this, and will do what it takes to retain Ward, even if that means utilizing the franchise tag? I can live with Alex Mack not being retained, but I think Ward is a must keep.

Hey Josh: I’m getting a sense that the Browns might be contemplating using the franchise tag on Ward.
That sounds like a pretty solid assessment. I too believe he will get the tag. Mike Pettine will love him and utilize him properly.
