Peyton Manning shares his thoughts on DeMarcus Ware's retirement

Posted Mar 13, 2017

From one future Hall of Famer to another, Manning congratulates Ware on his 12-year career.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — A little more than a year after celebrating the retirement of one of the greatest players in NFL history, the Broncos are doing it all over again. This time, they're honoring DeMarcus Ware after the 12-year veteran announced his retirement Monday.

Peyton Manning congratulated Ware by sharing these thoughts on his former teammate and co-captain:

"DeMarcus Ware is not only a Hall of Fame player, but a Hall of Fame teammate as well. I played against DeMarcus and played with him. It was an honor and a privilege to have done both.

“Being a teammate with DeMarcus and being a captain of the team was a real privilege for me. DeMarcus loved football. He loved everything about it. He loved putting the work in, loved helping the young players and of course loved playing on Sundays. It is no surprise why he was such an outstanding football player. It was because of his work ethic and his real passion for the game. It was an honor to call him a teammate and a friend. I just know he'll be a great success in his post-playing days.

“I wish him all the best. He truly is one of a kind."
