The Browns have re-signed one of the top cornerbacks in the league in two-time Pro Bowl CB Denzel Ward, who's now set to stay in Cleveland through 2027.
Fans, analysts and teammates of Ward all took it from there on social media, and we captured some of the fun.
Loss of words, I’m blessed.I want to thank the Haslams, JW Johnson, Andrew Berry, coach Stefanski and the rest of the browns organization for continuing to to believe in the home grown kid and allowing me to represent this organization and city of Cleveland where I’m from @Browns— Denzel Ward (@denzelward) April 18, 2022

Respect! Appreciate you brotha💯 let’s keep going!— Denzel Ward (@denzelward) April 18, 2022
At 24 years old, Denzel Ward becomes the highest-paid CB in NFL history. Why does age matter with prospects?— Jordan Reid (@Jordan_Reid) April 18, 2022
Asked #Browns GM Andrew Berry about this at the combine. It’s more so a financial advantage to get more prime years out of a player. Ward is a great example of this.
