John Fox Compares Ware to Peyton Manning

The Broncos signed DeMarcus Ware to a three-year deal shortly after he was cut by Dallas

DeMarcus Ware is coming off the least productive and most injury-hampered season of his nine-year career, which begs the question, was the 2013 season an aberration or a sign that the Dallas Cowboys’ all-time sacks leader or a sign that Ware is on the decline.

The Denver Broncos are banking on the former being the case, quite literally.

They gave Ware a three-year, $30 million deal shortly after he was cut loose by Dallas. Does the signing bring some risk with it? Sure. But as Broncos’ head coach John Fox points out, the team’s signing of Peyton Manning was viewed as a pretty risky move at the time, as well.

“No. 18, there was some risk. That turned out pretty good,” Fox said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “With DeMarcus, we saw enough evidence and knew what he dealt with a year ago to where we feel pretty good about the commitment.”
