DeMarcus Ware not considering retiring with ‘a lot of gas in the tank’

Monday February 8th, 2016

DeMarcus Ware is not considering retirement yet and says he has “a lot of gas left in the tank” after the Denver Broncos’ 24–10 Super Bowl win over the Carolina Panthers.

“I got a lot of gas in the tank,” Ware told the NFL Network. "Von [Miller] was the one that added the gas to the fire for me, so that’s why I'm playing the way I’m playing right now. I don’t think about retiring. God still wants me to play, that’s why I’m still doing what I’m doing.​”

“When I start bringing the cane out, you guys make sure that you tell me, ‘DeMarcus, it’s time to hang the cleats up,’” he added.

Ware combined for two sacks, four quarterback hits and two tackles for loss against the Panthers. He will turn 34 in July and is entering the final year of his contract with the Broncos.
