Reason #2: Health Concerns
DeMarcus Ware has been known as one of the best iron men in the league since he was drafted. Along with tight end Jason Witten, both players had long streaks of playing without sitting out because of injuries. Ware hadn’t missed a game until last season, when he missed 3 games due to a quad injury. Even when he came back from the quad injury it seemed every week Ware was dealing with another ailment. He has neck, back, quad, and elbow problems that kept coming back and kept his performance down. It was nice that Ware had a long run where he was virtually healthy, but it seems like now his body is just breaking down too quick. Now I fear that this man can’t get through another long and gritty season. Paying a man all that money and he can’t play for you? That just doesn’t seem like a great deal.
