DeMarcus Ware, Broncos agree to 3-year, $30M deal

Less than 24 hours after the Cowboys released DeMarcus Ware, he has found a new home.

As a Cowboys' fan, it's (another) sad day, but it's good, sort-of, to see one of my all-time favorite players get a legitimate opportunity to make a run for a championship.

Pending a physical, the Broncos and Ware have agreed to a three-year deal worth $30 million, of which $20 million is guaranteed, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Among active players, only three players have more career sacks than Ware (117.0): John Abraham (133.5), Jared Allen (128.5) and Julius Peppers (119.0). Coincidentally, Allen and Peppers are also free agents this offseason.

Playing at less than 100 percent last year and missing games (three of them) for the first time in his nine-year career, Ware had a career-low 6.0 sacks in 2013. That said, he's still one of the league's better pass-rushers when healthy and forms a talented duo with Von Miller.

In a high-powered offense led by Peyton Manning, the Broncos will have plenty of leads to allow Ware and Miller to get after the opposing team's quarterback.

Ware joins Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward as high-profile defensive free agents added by the Broncos in the 22-plus hours of 2014 NFL free agency.
