Broncos Hiring DeMarcus Ware As Pass-Rush Consultant


Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Broncos are hiring former OLB DeMarcus Ware as a pass-rush consultant on a part-time basis.

According to Schefter, the plan is for Ware to work a few days a week, a few times a month, and try to help improve the team’s group of pass rushers.

Ware can start with first-round pick Bradley Chubb, who could be in position to see work right out of the gate this year following the injury to Shane Ray. The Broncos also have a Pro Bowler in Von Miller and a quality young talent in Shaq Barrett among others.

Ware, 35, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2005. He spent nine years in Dallas before signing on with the Broncos in 2014.

Ware made the decision to retire following the 2016 season and he later signed a one-day contract with the Cowboys to retire as a member of the team.

For his career, Ware recorded 505 tackles, 138.5 sacks, 35 forced fumbles, eight recoveries, three interceptions and 26 pass defenses over the course of 12 years and 178 games played. He was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and made four first-team All-Pro squads.
