Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware is entering his first season with the Denver Broncos, and he said he feels better than he has in the last two years.
Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware was released by the Dallas Cowboys after a forgettable 2013 season, and the Denver Broncos scooped him up in free agency and will give him $20 million guaranteed.
Ware has established himself as a future Hall of Famer with his numbers. He has registered 117 sacks throughout his nine-year career, including a career-high 20 in 2008. The perennial Pro Bowler will look to take advantage of Von Miller playing across from him as he returns from a torn ACL that kept him out for much of last season.
Ware has insisted that he is feeling better than he did last season and the year before. “I feel better than I did the last two years going into the season. Stronger, faster. I feel flexible,” the newly arrived Bronco told the Denver Post.
With the signing of Ware, the Broncos are in win-now mode with quarterback Peyton Manning expected to be around for another couple of years. With him leading the offense and Ware and Miller rushing the passer on defense, the Broncos are primed to contend for a Super Bowl once again.
