Denver Broncos’ DeMarcus Ware retires
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — DeMarcus Ware won’t be returning to either the Dallas Cowboys or the Denver Broncos as expected.
The 12-year NFL veteran is instead retiring from the NFL.
Ware announced his decision Monday on Twitter.
Next to a split image of the Cowboys and Broncos, Ware wrote, “After a lot of thought and prayer, I’ve decided to accept the unknown and retire from my NFL career. Tempting opportunities still present themselves for me to play and I feel better than I have in years. However, long-term health of quality of life outweigh the spark and passion to play that I once had.”
Ware’s decision is a shocker.
Just two months ago, he scoffed at those suggesting he might have played his last NFL game after he missed the Broncos’ season finale to undergo lower back surgery.
