A nine-time Pro Bowl selection, Ware will turn 35 in late July and ranks eighth all-time in sacks with 138.5 – just one behind new Hall of Famer Jason Taylor and four behind Michael Strahan for sixth all-time.
After suffering through a tough season injury-wise in 2016, Ware leaves the Denver Broncos with a Super Bowl ring thanks to their run to the championship in Peyton Manning‘s final season.
He was always a class act and the game will miss him.
