Cowboys release all-time sack leader DeMarcus Ware
The Cowboys have released star defensive end DeMarcus Ware.
Can confirm NFL Network report that Cowboys have notified D. Ware of his release. He hits the open market— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 11, 2014
The team announced the move as well.
“A decision like this, involving a man who is a cornerstone player in the history of your franchise, is extremely difficult,” said owner/general manager Jerry Jones in a statement.
The Cowboys, who had an absolutely awful defense in 2013, will now lose their best player heading into 2014.
They will pick up $7.4 million in cap space as a result of the move but also now stare down more than $8 million in dead money as a result.
Ware's definitely older and slowing down a little bit, but he's going to find work quickly. He can land with a contender who will give him playing time in either a 4-3 or 3-4 defense. And he'll sack the quarterback.
The Cowboys better hope he doesn't land in the NFC East.
