Cowboys Have to Get a Deal Done Soon w/ Pass Rusher Ware

demarcus-ware
The announcement of the future of Greg Ellis isn’t the only news today for the Cowboys. The Dallas Morning News reports that the team still has a great interest in inking one of, if not the best pass rusher in the game today – DeMarcus Ware. Problem is, he’ll want a mega-deal that could rival that of what Albert Haynesworth got this offseason from the Redskins. Here’s the report from the Dallas Morning News:

What’s taking so long for the Cowboys to sign DeMarcus Ware? It shouldn’t be that complicated. Ware is one of the top five defensive players in the league without doubt. He’s one of the best pass rushers in the game without doubt. His sack total has increased each of his first four seasons in the NFL, culminating with 20 last year. And did I mention that he’s never had even a hint of trouble off the field? Albert Haynesworth signed a seven-year, $100 million deal with $41 million guaranteed that made him the NFL’s highest-paid player.

Ware’s deal will top Haynesworth’s contract because he’s younger and plays a more dynamic position. The salary cap has increased by $12 million over last year, and the Cowboys will soon cut or trade Greg Ellis, freeing up even more cash. Ware is not the kind of player on which the Cowboys need to use their usual negotiating ploys to get a deal done. They don’t need to mess with Ware. He deserves better. They just need to get the deal done before the start of training camp.
