Pro Football Hall of Fame snubs Super Bowl 50 champion DeMarcus Ware

DENVER — While Broncos Country know of DeMarcus Ware’s legendary status, sadly he won’t be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2022.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced this year’s class during the NFL Honors broadcast on Thursday, and the Super Bowl 50 champion has not been named. It was the first time he had been considered for this honor.

Ware began his storied career in 2005 with the Dallas Cowboys, racking up 117 sacks in 141 games. The linebacker was released in 2013 and headed to Denver, where he cemented his status as one of the best passing throwers in league history.

In his first year as a Bronco, he recorded 10 sacks and was selected for the Pro Bowl. The following year, he not only was selected again for the Pro Bowl, but also helped lead the team to a Super Bowl victory. He recorded seven hits against Tom Brady in the 2015 AFC Championship Game and two sacks against Cam Newton in Super Bowl 50.

Ware ended his Bronco career in 2016, recording four sacks, three defensive touchdowns and 229 quarterback hits in his senior year.

Although he won’t get a gold jacket and a bronze bust this time around, it’s only a matter of time.

Speaking of timing, former Boulder Fairview High star Tony Boselli was voted into the Class of 2022 on Thursday in his sixth attempt as a finalist.
