According to a report from Howard Eskin, Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware is refusing to take a pay cut as the team tries to restructure his contract. That more than likely means Ware will become a cap casualty and released by Dallas.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones hinted that Ware’s time could be coming to an end just days ago.
“He’s had a tough time getting on the practice field because of various injuries,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “All of that we have to weigh with how much of that has impacted him for the future as well as where he is in his career and with his age.
“Those are the ingredients in the stew. Now we’ve got to stir it up and see where we’re going. It will be a very difficult call for us because of how much salary cap he uses.”
Ware is scheduled to count for $16 million against the cap next season.
