The Denver Broncos will be bringing back one of their leaders in Demarcus Ware as the team has agreed to a restructured deal for the edge rusher.
Just when things were looking gloomy in free agency for the Denver Broncos, this could be the deal to turn it all around.
It has been announced that the Denver Broncos and Demarcus Ware have agreed to restructure his contract.
According to Legwold, Ware will make two million dollars this season. This includes incentives that can get him up to $10 million. That is quite a paycut to take, but to me this shows that Ware wants to stay in Denver.
This deal does a wonder for the Broncos. After the first few days of worrying that players were getting picked apart and moved to other teams, it is nice to see the leader of the defense returning on a restructured deal.
2016 is the final year of Ware’s contract. And with his injuries this season, it made sense to restructure the deal. He will be paid lower than a player as a third down linebacker, which figures to be his role in 2016.
This could also mean that Shaquil Barrett and Shane Ray will have more of an impact this season. So, that role for Ware impacts how the Broncos line up on defense.
What does the restructure mean for the rest of free agency? I think this could be exactly what the Broncos need to get something done either in the Kaepernick trade. But I think what could be really huge is matching Miami’s contract sheet for C.J. Anderson.
There are endless possibilities. Let us just watch and see what happens next. Grab your popcorn folks. Things could get better here for the Denver Broncos. Let Elway work his magic.
