DENVER, March 13 (UPI) -- While Malik Jackson, Brock Osweiler, and Danny Trevathan signed deals of a combined $190 million to play elsewhere, DeMarcus Ware is staying in Denver at a lower cost.

Ware, 33, agreed to a restructured contract with the Broncos Saturday, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

According to Rapoport, the nine-time Pro Bowler received $2 million to sign the deal and has a chance at a full $10 million salary with incentives.

Ware was sidelined for more than five games last season, due to a back injury, but still earned a Pro Bowl pick. The linebacker was originally due $10 million, but will now earn $4 million in base salary.

The Dallas Cowboys selected Ware as the No. 11 overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. Last season he tallied 7.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery. Ware has 134.5 career sacks.
