Report: Broncos emerge as favorite to land DeMarcus Ware

Peyton Manning, DeMarcus Ware AP

The Broncos were denied their veteran pass-rusher of choice because of a faulty fax machine last year.

Now, they have their choice of veterans, but may have a preference.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Broncos have emerged as the favorites to land former Cowboys defensive end/outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware.

Ware would fit an immediate need for someone to provide pressure opposite Von Miller, but there are a number of alternatives that make sense.

Other reports suggested Vikings free agent Jared Allen earlier in the day, and then Julius Peppers got released by the Bears. Given his background with John Fox and Jack Del Rio, you could have connected those dots.

But Ware’s the most versatile of the three, and would give the Broncos some flexibility on defense.

And if he’s intent on moving quickly to a contender, John Elway’s ability to close might come in handy again, as it did when he landed Peyton Manning.

    We all know since Jerrah the Genius cut him, he’ll have a career year. Nice move, Elway.

    Good one Elway, add some more aging, injury and choke prone veterans to the roster!

    Omg, going to change my pants. As long as he isnt too expensive, im very excited!

  4. bennyb82 says: Mar 11, 2014 10:26 PM

    So Jared Allen is too expensive but Ware is not?

  5. jebsta16 says: Mar 11, 2014 10:26 PM

    Come on TT step up!

    Welcome to Denver Mr. Ware

  7. joeflaccoallday says: Mar 11, 2014 10:27 PM

    Perfect picture! Lol

  8. thepftpoet says: Mar 11, 2014 10:27 PM

    Think of a healthy Von Miller, Demarcus Ware and Jared Allen coming off the edges.

    I don’t think it would be blockable.

    John Elway… We pray to you.

    He’s “won” the past to FA’s and is starting this one off incredibly well

  10. bucrightoff says: Mar 11, 2014 10:28 PM

    Him and Molly Miller off the edges would be crazy.

  11. thebirdofprey2 says: Mar 11, 2014 10:29 PM

    Ted Thompson step up??

    Other than maybe Charles Woodson. I can’t think of one guy he picked up in free agency. I guess the shareholders don’t have enough say.

  12. freeigwebuike says: Mar 11, 2014 10:29 PM

    I was really hoping they’d sign Allen, I DON’T want to see him in green and gold !

  13. doomsdaydefensetx says: Mar 11, 2014 10:30 PM

    Ware (much like the Cowboys Defense) has been plagued by injuries. A healthy Von Miller and #94 would terrify QBs. Good for DeMarcus.

  14. mimitaroo says: Mar 11, 2014 10:31 PM

    He hasn’t played at the same level since becoming a 4-3 DE. Why would he sign with a team that runs a 4-3?

  15. cashm says: Mar 11, 2014 10:35 PM

    You guys didn’t learn from February that stacking your roster with old former superstars doesn’t necessarily translate well in the post season?

  16. kev86 says: Mar 11, 2014 10:35 PM

    happy he won’t sack Eli anymore. Dallas is in shambles.

  17. thepftpoet says: Mar 11, 2014 10:37 PM

    I think we can all agree the Minnesota Vikings won Free Agency today.

    We got the best DT in the NFL for only 6 million a year?

    Who else could have done that?

    Every franchise envy’s us.

  18. jjackwagon says: Mar 11, 2014 10:40 PM

    Look at all the Enver fans getting excited about this speculation.

  19. notwithkubiak says: Mar 11, 2014 10:40 PM

    Why would he go there? Manning would just end up choking when it’s most important again.

  20. patriotinvasion says: Mar 11, 2014 10:53 PM

    If Ware was the guy he was he’d be a Cowboy still. #justaname

  21. jayovalentine says: Mar 11, 2014 10:57 PM

    And they said Dan Snyder signs old overpaid has-beens….

  22. darocnessmonsta says: Mar 11, 2014 10:57 PM

    Clowneys 40 time is why Jerry Jones Released Ware Jones always gets his man My bet if Dallas Lands Clowney In the Draft to replace Ware Im a Life Long Fan of the Cowboys and have seen Every One of his Games Im ok With his Release!!!!

  23. wtfchiefs says: Mar 11, 2014 11:06 PM

    John Elway is mastering how to cheat the cap. Just like Daddy Bowlen taught him.

  24. 7pints says: Mar 11, 2014 11:09 PM

    Jackwagon, don’t get all jealous because your squad has done jack. Oh, now I get your handle.

  25. Great Caesar's Ghost says: Mar 11, 2014 11:10 PM

    Too late, you already blew the Super Bowl.

  26. rgmememe says: Mar 11, 2014 11:10 PM

    Denver took notes from the Super Bowl. Defense wins championships.

  27. scw1993 says: Mar 11, 2014 11:11 PM

    Denver needs to look for a qb who won’t choke up a furball in big games. Pitiful, but true.

  28. therighthandedcowboy says: Mar 11, 2014 11:21 PM

    Dont count Ware out…he was really banged up last season.
    6He is deserving of an opportunity to be on a team that has a chance to win a super bowl unlike playing in Dallas where those poor souls are subjected to goung no where for the next 50 years…..Congrats to Ware for being tbe role model for kids in a role model depleted NFL…

  29. supertecmobowl says: Mar 11, 2014 11:28 PM

    Damn it, I just got over Dorsett going to Denver!

  30. hawksforever says: Mar 11, 2014 11:40 PM

    LOL! With Von Miller, Ware and Allen the SB score would have probably been 32-8 at best!

    LMFAO!!

  31. loyalraven says: Mar 12, 2014 12:07 AM

    Poor Demarcus Ware. He gets cut by a team who’s franchise quarterback always chokes in big games, only to be signed to a team who’s franchise quarterback always chokes in big games. I guess he’s addicted to failure.

  32. mrba4775 says: Mar 12, 2014 12:14 PM

    I have 2 admit I was wrong about D. Ware staying in Dallas. I DO like the Cowboys decision 2 go younger on Defense. Eventually, the Cowboys have 2 do the same with the older core player in 2016. The arrow is moving up 4 the Cowboys continue a very aggressive youth movement on both sides of the line of the line of scrimmage.
