Report: Broncos 'confident' about landing DeMarcus Ware

UPDATE: Denver Broncos sign DeMarcus Ware

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.

Ware, the Dallas all-time sack leader, was released by the Cowboys on Tuesday afternoon. And the Broncos, who Ware is visiting on Wednesday, are reportedly "confident" about landing him.

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.
