And so, the NFL Training Camp Tour continues and so does the build around the 2022 season….
Earlier in the week, we made a Pivot stop in Cincinnati and the Bengals wide receiver trio had a message for their AFC North rivals, well one player in particular…so we headed across Ohio and sat down with Cleveland’s million dollar man to see what he had to say.
Browns’ cornerback Denzel Ward, the league’s highest paid defensive back and one of the most elite, heard the message loud and clear and his response: “Well, you see what I did that game (against the Bengals) so it makes sense.” Ward, known for being a man of few words, has allowed his on field play do the talking for him and is ready for the Browns organization to be on a different path of success heading into this season.
Circling the Bengals on their schedule is a match up the Browns’ DBs look forward to each year. With talent on both sides of the ball, Ward is letting the world know, the Cleveland Browns are not the same team people think they are still.
Tuning out the noise and distractions that have plagued the franchise from losing seasons to coaching changes to Baker Mayfield drama to most recently the DeShaun Watson acquisition..Ward is speaking out on the renewed locker room camaraderie and leadership he brings to the team.
By showing support to one another and trust in the organization’s choices, Ward feels the team has become a closer unit which will ultimately help them play better, especially behind new quarterback DeShaun Watson, whenever he takes the field this season.
Ryan asks about the loss of Denzel’s father and how it impacted his life and Denzel opens up about how he almost walked away from the game of football all together and was ready to give everything up in 2016. “Make Them Know Your Name” a message his father instilled in him, is also the name of his foundation as a tribute to the legacy his family name brings and a reminder on how to treat people always.
