DeMarcus Ware Earns AFC Defensive Player Of The Month Honor

An accolade well-deserved:

For the first time in his career, DeMarcus Ware is named his division’s [sic] Defensive Player of the Year [sic].

After turning in 3.5 sacks and a league-leading 11 quarterback hits through the first three games of 2015, outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Month.

I’ve been on the record, as several others have been, that this would likely be Ware’s last season in Denver due to salary cap constraints and the young acquisitions of Shane Ray and Shaquil Barrett.  I’ve also felt that Ware surely knows that this could be the plan, and that a player of his caliber would step up to the plate to try scramble that plan.  Only time will tell, but so far Ware is proving his worth on the field much like Marshawn Lynch did for Seattle last year.
