ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – The Denver Broncos made some key free agent acquisitions this offseason that will improve the performance of the defense, and one of the players everyone is excited about is defensive end DeMarcus Ware.
Ware was the Dallas Cowboys first-round pick in 2005. He’s a seven-time Pro Bowler with 117 career sacks, and Broncos sack master Vonn Miller has taken notice.
Miller went to college at Texas A&M, so he admired Ware’s play in Dallas. Now that they’re both Broncos, Miller is even more of a fan.
“He’s a great teacher and it’s different from any other relationship that I’ve had with anyone else. I’ve looked up to DeMarcus. I’m not afraid to say it — ‘I want to be like DeMarcus Ware.’ He’s had a consistent career. To have the guy in the locker room every single day and to be able to see him, it’s a true blessing,” Miller said.
Cornerback Chris Harris is also coming back from an ACL injury, but his confidence is in fine shape. He was an undrafted free agent who battled his way into the starting lineup and he’s still got a lot of fight left in him.
“I’ve got so much motivation. I was watching LeBron (James) and he was talking about, ‘I’ve got so much motivation (I’m) going to explode.’ I feel the same way. I feel sorry for the receivers when I come back, because I’m ready. I’m definitely motivated and they’re going to get some work every day,” Harris said.
The Broncos next scheduled organized team activity offseason workout is scheduled for June 16-19.
