Ware happy con­sult­ing with Bron­cos

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Sports -

It was just like old times Wed­nes­day at the Denver Bron­cos’ train­ing com­plex. DeMar­cus Ware took Bradley Chubb aside and gave him some point­ers in be­tween drives at the team’s manda­tory mini­camp.

“I’ve been do­ing it my whole career,” said Ware, who re­turned to Denver as a pass-rush­ing con­sul­tant a year af­ter re­tir­ing from the Bron­cos.

Ware will work with the lineback­ers and de­fen­sive line­men. Whereas most coaches “have like 90-hour weeks,” Ware will only have to make oc­ca­sional trips to Denver, where he only has to fo­cus on tech­nique, not scheme.

The rea­son most su­per­stars don’t go into coach­ing so fast is they haven’t got­ten their play­ing days out of their sys­tem.

“Oh, it’s out,” Ware in­sisted. “It’s way out of my sys­tem. I’m Dad now and be­ing able to spend some time with my kids. But now get­ting a cou­ple of days here and there where I can go to the games and help the guys out, come to prac­tice and maybe a lit­tle bit of train­ing camp and through­out the sea­son.”

Ware joked he’s still good for 25 snaps and a cou­ple of sacks per game. “But those days are done,” he said. Williams eyes re­turn: Wash­ing­ton Red­skins left tackle Trent Williams says he ex­pects to be back for train­ing camp af­ter hav­ing surgery on his right knee.

Williams wore a ban­dage on his knee as he spoke to re­porters af­ter the Red­skins worked out in their prac­tice bub­ble dur­ing their manda­tory mini­camp.

The Pro Bowler missed six of 16 games last sea­son.

Williams said he had his tibia bone read­justed so his “kneecap isn’t out of place” and also had a “slight mi­crofrac­ture on top of that.”

Cheer­leader files suit: A for­mer Dal­las Cow­boys cheer­leader has filed a fed­eral law­suit against the team, al­leg­ing she wasn’t paid for all her work and made less money than the team’s male mas­cot.

Erica Wilkins, who worked for the Cow­boys from 2014-’17, is seek­ing “un­paid over­time wages, min­i­mum wages, and all other avail­able dam­ages,” cit­ing the Fair La­bor Stan­dards Act, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments.
