Ward has been one of the most productive defensive backs in the league since being drafted in 2018. He has never had less than 10 pass break ups in a single season, and has never gone a season without recording at least two interceptions.

In his four season career, Ward has recorded 10 interceptions and 50 pass deflections, combining for a total of 186 tackles. These numbers are extreme for a starting cornerback. The Browns have locked in their key piece in their secondary for the next five years.
