Did you think John Elway was done in free agency when he went out and beefed up his secondary by landing safety T.J. Ward on a steal of a deal and then later handing a massive contract to Aqib Talib? If you did, you were probably wrong. Elway's also chasing former Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware.
Broncos aren't done. Team sources confident about impending DeMarcus Ware visit.— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) March 12, 2014
To no one's surprise, Ware's generating plenty of interest on the free-agent market. Despite being older (31) and showing some signs of slowing down in 2013 (he only played in 13 games), Ware can still get after the quarterback.
His price was simply too prohibitive for Dallas.
Denver makes all the sense in the world. They were initially in on Jared Allen as well, though ultimately started moving their interest towards Ware later in the evening Tuesday.
The Broncos need to beef up their pass rush, can use plenty of bodies up front and Ware would make an impact on their defense. He'd probably be willing to work fairly cheap, too, and has experience both in the 4-3 and 3-4.
