When DeMarcus Ware signed with the Denver Broncos in 2014, he brought on-field talent and off-field leadership to the locker room. Ware helped mentor fellow outside linebacker Von Miller, who went on to win Super Bowl MVP honors with Ware as his teammate.
Ware retired before the Broncos selected Bradley Chubb in the 2018 NFL draft, but he’s also helping mentor Chubb even though he’s no longer an active player. Ware has helped coach up edge defenders as Miller’s past offseason Pass Rush Summits, and he’s working with Chubb this offseason.

If Ware’s work with Chubb leads to similar results that Miller had, the 24-year-old edge defender should expect to have a big year in 2021.
Three years ago, Ware served as a part-time pass rush coach with the Broncos. He had a similar offer from the Dallas Cowboys but opted to work for the Broncos, the team that he won a title with.
Ware had a key role in Denver’s win over the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl, and he will be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2022.
