Florida prosecutors have dropped drug charges against free-agent safety T.J. Ward, according to online court records.
Ward, who became a free agent in March after spending last season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was arrested in January on charges of cannabis possession, a third-degree felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor. The charges were dismissed Thursday, according to Hillsborough County court records.
Ward, 31, started his career with the Cleveland Browns and won a Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos. A two-time Pro Bowler, he joined the Buccaneers on a one-year, $5-million deal and made five starts for Tampa Bay last season.
