Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware blew up the first play from scrimmage against the Seattle Seahawks in the team's first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 7, and he also sacked QB Russell Wilson two plays later.
Huddle Up: The 32-year-old Ware is coming off his worst season as a pro, but don't write off the vet just yet as a Rocky Mountain revival could be in the offing lining up opposite Von Miller.

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware did not practice Monday, July 28, with a lower right leg bruise. Head coach John Fox said Ware will be fine.
Huddle Up: This doesn't sound like much of anything, but any ailment will be magnified for the soon-to-be 32-year-old who is coming off career lows in sacks (6) and games played (13) last season in Dallas.

The Denver Broncos are looking for leaders on defense, with DE DeMarcus Ware a possibility to take on that role. 'I think the main thing is you sit back in the catbird seat and you just lead by example. Eventually, the guys, they know exactly that you mean business,' Ware said. 'Then eventually you're able to be a little bit more vocal and gradually you move up.'
Huddle Up: With Champ Bailey and Wesley Woodyward now playing elsewhere, there is definitely a need for veteran leadership on the Mile High D, and the soon-to-be 32-year-old Ware will be counted on to step forward. Rebounding from his first single-digit season sack total (6) in 8 seasons would also pay dividends in Denver.

The Denver Broncos have reached an agreement with unrestricted free-agent DE DeMarcus Ware (Cowboys) on a three-year, $30 million deal that includes $20 million in guaranteed money. Ware will make $13 million this season, which is $250,000 more than he was scheduled to make had the Dallas Cowboys not cut him. He will make $7 million guaranteed for 2015, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Broncos continue to spend in free agency in hopes of winning one more Super Bowl before Peyton Manning retires. They reportedly offered the same sort of contract to Vikings free agent Jared Allen, but Ware was first to grab the offer.

According to reports, the Dallas Cowboys are releasing DE DeMarcus Ware on Tuesday, March 11.
Huddle Up: Don't look now but the sad-sack Dallas defense -- which gave up the most yards (415.3 per game) and 7th-most points (27 pg) in the league this past season -- just lost its best player after the two sides were unable to come to terms on a restructured deal. Ware, who has averaged 13 sacks per season over his 9-year career, is now free to explore other options, and there is plenty of immediate interest, including feelers from 6 playoff teams.
