Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware’s future with the team is a bit uncertain. He is under contract for the 2014 season and is scheduled to earn $12.25 million with a cap hit of roughly $16 million.
He could be asked to restructure his deal, which he has previously said he is open to, or he could become a cap casualty. Ware’s agent hasn’t been approached by the team yet though.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Ware said, via Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com. “I’m going to let the guys run the numbers and handle that. My mentality is that I’m going to do what I need to do to try to help the team out the best I can where they’re going to win and I want to win.
“We need guys here to be on the team for next season to help me out, to help us out, so sometimes you can’t think about a whole bunch of money and then not have anybody there. You need somebody there by your side, a defensive tackle, a defensive end, a wide receiver. You need to figure it out because the time is now. We need to win. That’s what I get out of playing. I play hurt, bruised up. Some guys don’t play, but I still get out there and play because I don’t care about anything else.”
