With just 9 days until Broncos training camp begins, Aqib Talib and DeMarcus Ware are getting healthy and looking forward to getting back out on the field.
“Me and Aqib, we’ve become best friends, because I’ve been in there with him,” said Ware of the pair’s shared rehab time.
“I’m feeling really good,” Ware said. “I’ve just been in treatment and stuff for my back. Everything’s going well with that. I’m just getting ready for training camp.”
Ware was a first round pick in the 2005 NFL Draft and spent his first nine seasons in Dallas. He ranks second among active NFL players, and 11th all-time, with 134.5 career sacks.
Talib, who has also been with the Broncos since 2014, ranks first in the NFL with seven interceptions returned for touchdowns since becoming a regular starter in 2009. The star cornerback is currently in the middle of six-year deal worth $57 million.

In June, Talib reportedly shot himself in the leg while hanging out with friends at the V Live strip club in Dallas. Alcohol was said to have played a role in the incident.
At a recent charity golf outing, Talib was spotted walking quickly and without any trace of a limp.
Attending the same event, Ware offered a comment on the recent blockbuster deal to keep Von Miller with the Broncos for another six years.
“I knew he wasn’t going to sign it with the franchise tag, but I know it’s a business thing, [John] Elway always does what he needs to do, and that’s what it’s about,” Ware said.
With all signs pointing to Ware and Talib being back to full-strength by the start of the season, the team probably needs to start worrying more about some of the many question marks on offense.
