Ware Signs with Broncos
Just one day after being cut by the Dallas Cowboys, reports are that DeMarcus Ware has been signed by the Denver Broncos.
The deal is reportedly for three years and $30million, pending a physical.
It was reported several weeks ago that Jerry Jones had planned to cut the All-Pro for salary cap reasons and because of injuries. Ware has been on the disabled list more than on the field. Jones had said that Ware could come back to the Cowboys if he wanted to take a salary cut. Obviously, he didn't want to do that.
The word from the NFL Network was that when Broncos general manager John Elway heard that Ware would be available, he would not waste any time going after him. Looks like the word was right. It also sounds like the paid observers agree with Elway:
Elway also thought that Ware would be the ideal role model for the troubled Vonn Miller, who sat out part of the 2013 season because of drug issues.
Ware was not only one of the best players on the Cowboys, if not the best, he was a fan favorite, too.
But I guess it made more sense for Jerry Jones to cut him rather than pick up his huge salary. I'm sure the rest of the NFC East will be thanking Jones for making this decision. Now Ware can go terrorize someone else.
Ware wasn't the only player the Cowboys cut loose yesterday. Wideout Miles Austin also got the ax. Like Ware, Miles has struggled with injuries the last couple of years.
