DeMarcus Ware has agreed to a restructuring of his contract that will allow him to return to the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos at a lower price next season, according to multiple reports.

Ware, 33, was originally scheduled to earn $7 million in salary along with a $3 million bonus for the 2016 season according to the Denver Post, but he will now take home a bonus of $2 million and play for a reduced base salary, with the opportunity to earn the full amount if certain incentives are reached.
