2. Demarcus Ware 

Once upon a time before Micah Parsons became arguably the best defensive player in the game, the Cowboys had a player named Demarcus Ware, who was doing what Parsons is doing now for nine consecutive seasons. 

The Cowboys are set in stone with pass rushers and boast one of the most talented defensive fronts in football. So let’s add in Ware and make it even better. The recently enshrined Hall of Famer carved out a 12-year playing career with the Cowboys and the Denver Broncos. 

Per Stat Muse, Ware compiled 138.5 career sacks (117 as a Cowboy, a franchise record), 171 tackles for loss, and 35 forced fumbles. 

In addition to being the Cowboys leader in sacks. Ware is the team's all-time leader in fumbles forced, tackles for loss, and quarterback hits. His career accolades include seven All-Pro seasons, nine Pro-Bowl selections, being named a member of the 2000s all-decade team, and a Super Bowl ring in 2015 with Denver.

Can we imagine Ware and Parsons coming off both sides of the edge? How do you prepare for that as an opposing offensive coordinator?
