IT’S OFFICIAL: WARE ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS
For the 10th consecutive season, a defensive player was selected by local media covering the Broncos as the team’s Darrent Williams Good Guy Award recipient.
Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware is the 2016 winner of the award given to a Broncos player who displays honesty and cooperation with the media.
“When you think about a guy like Darrent, what he has done for this organization — the charisma each and every day,” Ware said. “Get up here and take the criticism, if it’s good or bad.”
Ware was a 2015 finalist for the NFL’s national Good Guy Award.
“DeMarcus was the clear winner this year,” said Jeff Legwold, president of the Pro Football Writers of America and a Broncos reporter for ESPN.com. “Those who named him as the winner cited his willingness not only to take the time, but to discuss a wide range of issues then offer comments of substance.

Wolfe left Sunday’s game in the second quarter and didn’t return. He compared the injury to a “really bad stinger,” feeling pain in his inflamed neck and shoulder. He said he plans to play against Kansas City
