DeMarcus Ware lasted one day as a free agent before agreeing to a three-year deal with the Denver Broncos.

Ware, 31, was released by the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday as the team was up against the salary cap.  Cutting Ware was to make $12.25 million in base salary before the Cowboys cut him. He was to count $16 million against the cap.

Immediately teams lined up to speak to Ware but in the end it was the Denver Broncos who landed him on a three-year deal worth $30 million. The Broncos will guarantee $20 million of his contract.

The Cowboys in turn have signed former Houston Texans DT Terrell McClain to a three-year contract. He recorded 10 tackles in 16 games last season.
