DaMarcus Ware didn’t spend too much time on the unemployment line. Less than 24 hours after the Cowboys cut the veteran pass-rusher due to salary cap implications, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports he’s on the verge of a three-year, $30 million deal from the AFC champion Denver Broncos pending a physical.
Ware would be the second big-deal signing in 24 hours for the Broncos’ defense, following former Patriot cornerback Aqib Talib who agreed to a six-year $57 million contract. These veterans should, on paper anyway, bolster a defense which allowed 43 points to the Seahawks in the Super Bowl last month. It appears the Broncos are going all-in while the window to win a Super Bowl with Peyton Manning remains open. At the very least Ware should form a nice pass-rush tandem with Von Miller on the outside.
Jason La Canfora tweets that $20 million of Ware’s contract is guaranteed.
