The Denver Broncos continue to make a splash on day two of free agency. According to CBS Sports on March 12, the Broncos have signed the former Dallas Cowboys defensive end to a three-year, $30 million deal.

The signing comes just a day after Ware was released by the Cowboys. The Cowboys all-time sack leader was immediately linked with the Broncos soon after his release and on Wednesday he officially became a member of the Broncos.

The deal is not surprising, however, the amount and length of the deal is. Out of the $30 million, $20 million is guaranteed and at 31, three years may be taking a risk for a player that has already shown some decline in game. Despite that, the move positions the Broncos into Super Bowl favorite as the team has addressed their needs by signing Ware, along with cornerback Aqib Talib and safety T.J. Ward.

A tandem of Ware and Von Miller should present a problem for opposing AFC quarterbacks. Health, of course, is the key ingredient to the Broncos defense being the force it looks to be on the field.
