John Elway isn't messing around, kids. Just over 12 hours after dropping a $57 million bombshell by signing cornerback Aqib Talib, Elway made another splash by inking defensive end DeMarcus Ware to a massive contract, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.

That deal is truly a whopper: a three-year, $30 million deal with $20 million guaranteed.

Ware was recently cut by the Cowboys after they got put into a salary-cap squeeze when Ware wouldn't take a pay cut.

Can you blame him for not taking less money? Dude strolled out onto the open market and got real rich(er) real quick.

Ware was most productive in his career playing as a 3-4 outside linebacker but he spent 2013 playing as a 4-3 defensive end, so he can slot into the Broncos system just fine.
