Ware now a consultant for Broncos

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) 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 still looks yoked and he joked he's still good for 25 snaps and a couple of sacks per game.

''But those days are done,'' he said. ''I can still put the cleats on and help the guys out in other ways.''

Ware played three seasons in Denver after a nine-year run in Dallas, where he left as the Cowboys' all-time sacks leader with 117. He added 21+ to that total with the Broncos, whom he helped win Super Bowl 50.

Ware also helped out the Cowboys pass rushers this summer but said he had to choose between the two teams for a more substantial role ''and this right here was my choice.''

In Denver, he'll get to work with rookie Bradley Chubb, whom he called a ''great phenomenal athlete,'' adding he's ''one of those as they come in, they don't know the scheme yet but they have all the athleticism and the `measureables' to be a great player.''

He's also getting reacquainted with superstar Von Miller, whom Ware said continues to impress him.

Since Ware's retirement, Miller has ''become a lot bigger leader on the team'' and is a more vocal, Ware said.
