And he brings a wealth of experience, passion and energy with him.
Wednesday, the Denver Broncos welcomed their former defensive lineman DeMarcus Ware back to the organization as a part-time pass rush consultant.
"It's good for us," Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said. "Obviously, he's a guy who can teach pass rush. He's going to be in here a couple times a week, hopefully for home games also."
Ware can focus on helping the players, without having the time commitment of a full-time assistant coach.
"I get to pick and choose the groups I get to work with, really the defensive line and linebackers. [We] can hone in on technique and not worry about the scheme but just instilling that championship mentality in the guys."
Without the demands of being a player himself, Ware can focus solely on teaching the current Broncos.
"I've been doing it my whole career. Being a captain for this team for three years and now being able to come back and do the same thing and have a lot more time to do it. Not having to go out there and perform now, you get to see the other guys do it. It's a great opportunity to be part of this organization and help out where I can."
Ware played with the Broncos from 2014-2016 and was an integral part of the team that won Super Bowl 50.
