DeMarcus Ware praises Broncos rookie Bradley Chubb

Broncos rookie Bradley Chubb commanded high praise from Demarcus Ware, who believes the Broncos secured an ideal complementary player to outside linebacker Von Miller, Herbie Teope of reports.

"The attributes that he really brings to the game -- stopping the run and being able to be that strong-side guy for Von -- that's what you need," Ware said in the interview. "They have that tag team again."

Having an effective one-two punch off the edges served the Broncos well during Ware's three seasons in Denver (2014-16).

After Ware's retirement following the 2016 season, the Broncos struggled to find a player to man the strong side in 2017, dropping to 22nd in the league with 22 sacks as Shane Ray dealt with a wrist injury.

"Shane, he had the opportunity, but he was hurt," Ware told the radio hosts. "And so he couldn't be that power guy on the other side."

Should Chubb deliver, Ware thinks the rookie could eventually follow in his footsteps as an elite pass rusher.

"You know the thing is he can be," Ware said in the podcast. "He's one of those guys who's mature, he listens, and that's what you want from a young guy. Because some of them come in very arrogant, saying, 'OK, I'm in the league now.' But for me, he has that, 'I just arrived' mentality. 'What do I need to do to deliver?'"
