Will The Cowboys Regret Releasing DeMarcus Ware?


It didn’t take long for All-Pro defensive end DeMarcus Ware to find another job in the NFL. One day, in fact.  The former Dallas Cowboy signed a three-year, $30 million deal with the Denver Broncos on Wednesday. The 31-year old was released by the Cowboys the day before after Ware refused to take a pay cut. He was scheduled to make $26 million in the next two years in Dallas and was coming off his worst season as a professional.

Many fans have mixed feelings towards the release of one of the team’s most iconic figures. All agree Ware will remain a Cowboys legend regardless of Wednesday’s signing. But some feel a bit betrayed by him too as Ware elected to play elsewhere rather than sacrificing a portion of his paycheck for the betterment of the team. Others seem to believe Ware had every right to refuse a pay cut and are happy he now has a perceived “better chance” of winning a championship in Denver.

But will Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones regret letting Ware go? Do you think DeMarcus will thrive with the Broncos? Or did the Cowboys cut bait with the aging star at just the right time?

So that is today’s poll question: Will The Cowboys Ultimately Regret Releasing DeMarcus Ware? Place your vote below and feel free to explain your pick in our comments section.

    Probably won’t regret it but will be missed

  • ctcowboy1968

    Facts are facts. Old, frequent injuries, not worth $16 million cap hit. He decided to leave. Will miss him, but he is on the downside of his career. JJ made a good and tough decision.

  • Earl Robertson

    Ware will do good with broncos because it is a 34, Von Miller, and Manning. But Cowboys had to ask him for a pay cut. Will he get hurt? Probably not since he isn’t playing for cowboys for some reason cowboys are snake bite when it comes to hurt players

    To bad Jerry won’t release himself!
