Broncos' new pass-rush tandem on comeback trail (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: April 22, 2014, 11:44 am]
Denver Broncos pass-rushers DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller are a lot alike. Ware had his right elbow repaired in February, a few weeks before the Dallas Cowboys released him in a salary cap move after the worst season of the star pass-rusher's career. Ware amassed a franchise-best 117 sacks for the Cowboys since getting drafted in the first round in 2005, but he got to the quarterback a career-low six times last season and missed games for the first time in his nine-year career with a thigh injury. If both men can regain their health and their previous form, the Broncos should have one of the NFL's top tandems to go with that prolific offense that carried them to the Super Bowl last year before they got destroyed 43-8 by Seattle.
