Ware happy consulting with Broncos
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.
