Broncos will honor DeMarcus Ware

DeMarcus Ware already said he didn’t know who to root for in Sunday’s game between his former teams. But the Broncos are doing their best to win him over.

Denver will recognize their former linebacker, who retired after last season, with an on-field presentation after the first quarter. He also will serve as the team’s coin toss alumni captain.

Ware played his first nine seasons with the Cowboys before they released him. He signed with the Broncos in 2014 and finished his career in Denver. He and the Cowboys had discussions about his return, but he decided to retire instead, signing a one-day contract with the Cowboys.

Ware, though, won his only Super Bowl with the Broncos.

  1. I think this is ok for the Broncos to do they are honoring one of our greats and now the Cowboys players and fans that will he there can be there and celebrate DWares night with him!

  2. That is messed up to put him in that predicament. No class from the Broncos at all to do this during this week. You have 8 to choose from and you purposely put him in this awkward position. Not sure what they are trying to prove by doing this but I just lost a ton of respect for their organization. That’s like the Cowboys inducting Charles Haley into the Ring of Honor at halftime during a 49ers game.

  3. Elway is clearly trying to punk Jerry Jones with this move. They could have picked any other home game to honor Ware. Why this one? I think the answer is obvious.

    how awkward

    what was he there for ilke 3 years?
    and rodney harrison was a patriot for 6 years … was a charger for 9 …

  5. Actually, when he retired from the NFL, he signed a 1 day contract with Dallas to retire a Cowboy. Still, he was a monster and respected by both franchises. Impossible to dislike the man.

  6. He made his bed and now he can lay in it. They deserve each other. Hope he enjoys hearing the home crowd cheer louder for the visiting team. Even better, he can enjoy that big “L” in his new home.

  7. I don’t see how this is awkward? He just retired and the two teams that don’t play often against each other are. What better way to celebrate a man that has helped both franchises out. It’s not like he left Dallas or Denver with bad blood.

    He won his Super Bowl with Broncos, but he will always be remembered as a Cowboy. He will go into the Hall of Fame as a Cowboy.
