DeMarcus Ware, who helped lead the Denver Broncos to Super Bowl 50 victory, will join the other football greats in Canton, Ohio, as part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2023.

This was his second time under consideration for the honor after being snubbed last year.

Ware began his legendary career in 2005 with the Dallas Cowboys, racking up 117 sacks in 141 games. The linebacker was released in 2013 and made his way to Denver, where he solidified his status as one of the best pass rushers in league history.

In his first year as a Bronco, he recorded 10 sacks and was selected to the Pro Bowl. The next year, he was not only selected to the Pro Bowl again, but also helped lead the team to a Super Bowl victory. He recorded seven quarterback hits against Tom Brady during the 2015 AFC Championship game and two sacks against Cam Newton during Super Bowl 50.

Ware ended his time in the NFL as a Bronco in 2016, finishing with a career total of three defensive touchdowns, 138.5 sacks and 229 quarterback hits.

This personal milestone bookends a storied career. Broncos Insider Troy Renck details Ware's time with the Broncos and the road to Super Bowl 50 in this story.
