According to ESPN Cowboys beat writer Todd Archer, the Dallas Cowboys have agreed to a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs.

A quick read on Ward from ProFootballTalk:

Ward appeared in the first three preseason games for the Cowboys, playing 58 snaps. He made seven tackles and two pass breakups.

Ward played at Middle Tennessee State, making 74 tackles, two interceptions and 13 pass breakups in two seasons.

According to our sister blog Blogging The Boys, Ward had shown flashes during training camp and preseason, and many believed he would make the final 53 man roster for the Cowboys.

And check out this report from DraftWire that calls Ward the “most underrated cornerback in the 2018 draft.”
