One of the biggest stories on Tuesday is the decision made by the Dallas Cowboys to part ways with the franchise’s all-time sack leader in DeMarcus Ware who is now a free agent. He carried a $16 million cap number and will be 32 this season, so after battling injuries the past two seasons and making a position change, the two parted ways.
There figures to be no shortage of suitors for Ware who has had double-digit sacks every year of his career except for his rookie year when he had eight and this year when he had six in 13 games, and MMQB’s Greg Bedard writes that as many as six teams could be ideal fits for Ware.
“It appeared that some of Ware’s issues had to do with the conversion from 3-4 outside linebacker to a 4-3 end. The transition is not as easy as one would think, especially for a player who had spent eight seasons training his body to be a standup linebacker. Ware should find himself a landing spot that allows him to get back to standing up full-time on the outside. Among the teams that could give him that opportunity: the Falcons, Jets, Browns, Texans, Saints and Chargers. Ware, at his age, is a starter who needs some relief but is still better than being just a role player, at least for a couple more years.”
