It was hard to see the Dallas Cowboys release future Hall-of-Famer defensive end DeMarcus Ware on Tuesday. The man will go down as the best Cowboys pass rusher in franchise history and is among the game’s best defenders. He is also considered one of the truly good individuals that play in this league full of law breakers and corrupt players. He is truly the epitome of the fan favorite. It was unfortunate and sad to see him go, but this was the best move Owner and General Manager Jerry Jones made in the last 17 years. Here are my top-3 reasons why Jerry was right to cut DeMarcus Ware.

    How can you question his ego when he received a raise? You expect him to accept 5-6 million for one year instead 20 million for two years?
    He is guaranteed to compete for a Super Bowl next year. If he stays then he will compete to be 8-8. You and I would have made the same exact decision every single time.
    You’re absolutely right about reasons one and two.

    I know it so overused but I truly believe it was a win win situation for all involved. Dallas moves on from the huge salary and starts getting their finances in order and Ware gets paid with most of salary guaranteed. The tricky part is if his body continues to break down and he continues to regress as a player, then the broncos will regret the move and only the broncos.

    Ware is a pro, and pros do what they do for money. Ware thought he
    didn’t have to accept a paycut, and the market proved him right. If the
    market had proved him wrong, he’d likely still be a Cowboy. That’s the extent of loyalty in today’s NFL, and that’s OK. I wish him all the best.

      Boys were going to pay him $12.25 million. Not sure of the details, but $20 million for two years would be $10 million next year. That’s a pay cut. Denver is only doing this to win the SB next year.

        Everything I’ve read says the Broncos will pay Ware over $12 million this season. Not a pay cut, unless guys like Spagnola and Archer got their numbers wrong…

    It was the only move JJ could make. For once he did the right thing. Boys aren’t in the SB discussion. Get the financial house in order and rebuild with youth. Ware is not a difference maker anymore. Ergo, we will as many games with or without him.
