It looks like DeMarcus Ware wasn’t wrong when he predicted that, if he was released by the Dallas Cowboys, there would be a great deal of interest in his services from around the league.
Less than 24 hours after his release, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Ware--pending a physical--has agreed to terms on a three-year, $30 million deal with the Denver Broncos. The deal includes $20 million guaranteed, and will pay him $13 million next season--$750,000 more than he would have made with the Cowboys.
Of course, the good news is that Ware didn’t land with the Eagles, Giants or Redskins, as Cowboys defensive linemen have made something of a habit of joining NFC East rivals via free agency in recent years (Stephen Bowen and Chris Canty come to mind). What’s more, the Cowboys will not have to face the future Ring of Honor member in 2014 barring a, um, Broncos-Cowboys Super Bowl.
2014 will be Ware’s tenth season in the NFL.
