DeMarcus Ware says he's never felt better


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) New Broncos pass rusher DeMarcus Ware says he's never felt better in the past couple of years. He's slimmed down this offseason -- down to the 250-pound range, according to the Denver Post -- in an effort to be faster. Last season he put on weight as the Cowboys moved to a 4-3 scheme after being in a 3-4 for so long. 

"I feel better than I did the last two years going into the season," Ware said. "Stronger, faster. I feel flexible."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) The Broncos have emerged as the frontrunner to land recently released defensive end DeMarcus Ware, according to a report form ESPN.com Tuesday.

Ware was only notified by the team of his impending release Tuesday, given his $16 million salary cap hit for the 2014 season. The process is moving quickly for the 31-year-old, seven-time Pro Bowler, despite recording just six sacks last season, the lowest total of his career. 


Report: Cowboys will release DeMarcus Ware


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/11/2014) The Cowboys intend to release veteran pass rusher DeMarcus Ware, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. 

Ware was set to make $13 million this year and count $16 million against the salary cap, money the Cowboys could ill afford to keep on their books. With the release the team saves nearly $8 million in cap space. 

Ware, who turns 32 this year, has had surgery for the second consecutive offseason and had a career-low six sacks in 2013 playing as a defensive end in the Cowboys' 4-3 scheme. Previously he dominated as an outside linebacker in the 3-4 format.

Cowboys, DeMarcus Ware battling over money


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware has reportedly been asked to take a pay cut, according to NFL Network, but the All Pro pass rusher isn't interested in relinquishing any of the $13 million he's owed per season. In fact he counts $16 million against the cap in 2014 -- a number the Cowboys don't seem willing to pay according to NFL Network.

The team is interested in getting him to take a pay cut and Ware's not hearing any of it. He realizes teams will be interested in signing him if he hits the open market, says the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The Cowboys might be forced to do it given their limited cap space. If they were to cut Ware they would save $7.8 million. 

Ware, who turns 32 this year, has had surgery for the second consecutive offseason and had a career-low six sacks in 2013 playing as a defensive end in the Cowboys' 4-3 scheme. Previously he dominated as an outside linebackers in the 3-4 format.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Could DeMarcus Ware be a cap casualty?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/25/2014) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wouldn't commit to pass rusher DeMarcus Ware being on the roster in 2014. In an interview on ESPN, Jones emphasized the team's cap issues by suggesting that releasing Ware might be an option. 

"There's no question when you are where we are on the cap, even though we've had some new cap space added, and you have a defensive player that's your highest paid defensive player, and he hasn't been on the field much the last two years, that has to be considered," Jones said according to the Dallas Morning News. "You can't have it all."

Ware had his worst season in 2013 after moving to defensive end, totaling 6.0 sacks and 40 tackles over 13 games. 


DeMarcus Ware has successful elbow surgery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware underwent successful surgery on his right elbow Tuesday, reports the Dallas Morning News. The elbow has bothered Ware the past two seasons.

Ware is coming off a bad season in which he posted a career-low six sacks. He is scheduled to count $16 million against the cap.

“DeMarcus had a hell of a career but when we’re in the cap situation that we’re in and obviously counting as much as he is obviously you have to look at it along with several others,” the club’s executive vice president, Stephen Jones, told the paper.


Suggs deal could impact DeMarcus Ware, Cowboys


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) The contract extension Terrell Suggs signed with the Ravens could be beneficial to the Cowboys and DeMarcus Ware, reports ESPN.

The Ravens and Suggs agreed on a contract extension that will significantly lower his $12.8 million salary-cap figure. He was set to make a $7.8 million base salary in the final year of his deal.

Ware is set to make a $12.25 million base salary and count $16.003 million against the cap. He is technically signed through 2017, but the final two years of the contract will void so he will be a free agent after the 2015 season.

The report says the extension the Ravens gave Suggs could serve as something of a blueprint for the Cowboys. Needing salary-cap space, the Cowboys cannot have Ware count $16 million against the cap. 


DeMarcus Ware scheduled for elbow surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2014) Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware told reporters he will undergo surgery to correct a nerve issue in his right elbow, an apparent change after it was reported last week that he had not had a procedure scheduled yet.

"It's been killing me,"Ware told ESPNDallas.com Tuesday. "It's hurt really bad and that's why I would wear an elbow pad to stop from getting it hit but that didn't do much. It would get irritated even when it was barely touched."

Ware is scheduled to undergo the surgery Feb. 18 for an issue that has bothered him over the last two seasons. He does not expect to miss any of the team's offseason training.

 


No surgery scheduled for DeMarcus Ware


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware said right after the season he likely would undergo surgery to clean up bone fragments in his right elbow. But as of now, reports the Dallas Morning News, no surgery is scheduled.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2014) With defensive tackle Jason Hatcher expected to leave via free agency and defensive end DeMarcus Ware coming off a down year, the Cowboys "will be as committed to taking a defensive lineman in the first round of this draft as they were to taking an offensive lineman in the first round of two of the previous three drafts," reports the Dallas Morning News.

Jerry Jones mum on Miles Austin, DeMarcus Ware


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said it's too early to discuss what the team will decide in regard to wide receiver Miles Austin and defensive end DeMarcus Ware, reports ESPN.com. Most observers expect Dallas to cut Austin and the $5.5 million he's due in 2014, and to restructure Ware's deal.

Downfall of DeMarcus Ware a concern to Cowboys


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2014) The Cowboys have grown more concerned about the deterioration of defensive end DeMarcus Ware, who will be paid $12.25 million in 2014, according to the Dallas News.

Ware, who averaged 14.6 sacks a year from 2006 to 2012, managed just six this season and by far the lowest tackle total of his career. He has been battling an assortment of injuries and will be 32 years old when the 2014 season begins.

After a loss to the Eagles that knocked the Cowboys out of the playoff picture, Ware indicated he would accept less money to help his team financially. But he backtracked the next day, claiming he would only be willing to move money around.

"Pay cut and restructure are two different things," he said.


DeMarcus Ware to get elbow checked out


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware, who finished with a career-low six sacks, dealt with multiple injuries throughout the season. He said he'll undergo arthroscopic elbow surgery soon.

“The whole season I had my right elbow. I don’t know what’s wrong with it,” Ware told ESPN.com. “I’ll get it checked out. This game [Week 17] I wrapped my left elbow up, I hyper-extended it in practice. I had a torn right quad for probably about six games, and then I got a herniated disk in my back. But I’ve been playing with that since 2010. It flared up on me a little bit.

“I just get out there and play, man. When I have an opportunity to get out there and play, I play to the best of my ability and I just keep it rolling.”

Ware, 31, says he's open to restructuring his contract, which is set to pay him $12.25 million in 2014. Ware had 40 tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery but no forced fumbles this season.
