Ward is not happy about stigma that he's not good in pass coverage . This is the final year of Ward's rookie contract. Ward's days numbered as a member of the Cleveland Browns? “From the day I stepped on an NFL field if you look at my numbers, the times I have been targeted and passes defended I’ve been in the top five of safeties,” Ward said. The 6-6, 265-pound tight end was targeted just five times in the Patriots’ 27-26 win, finishing with two catches and 32 yards before tearing two knee ligaments in his collision with Ward. He also hopes it gives his detractors an appreciation for his pass-coverage abilities.
