There are only a few more hours left to the request that Cowboys’ DeMarcus Ware has made to the team to let him know if he is staying or going. According to a league source, Ware requested that the Dallas Cowboys make a decision on his future with the team before the NFL’s free-agency signing period begins Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.
Ware’s current salary is at $12.25 million, but the team has said that they will not retain Ware on the roster at his current salary. Mum has been the word on what the new salary proposal is or whether the team will answer Ware’s request for an answer today by 4 p.m. ET.
Ware is one of teams most beloved players, but unfortunately last season was Ware’s worst marred with injury. With the team currently under its salary cap, there would be no reason to restructure Ware’s salary, unless the team wants to try to hold on to him to get more money from another team who is desperate to have him. If the team does go back on their word this will not be the first for team owner, Jerry Jones and his management staff. A couple of years back Jones promised veteran wide receiver, Terrell Owens that he was not going to release him however a couple of days later Owens found out via television that he had been released by the team.
While the team could be writing him off, there a number of other teams that would love to have a player of his talent and character. At least they haven’t taken his jersey out of the team store before they released him like Carolina did to Steve Smith.
We’ll keep you posted on all of the free agency activity as it begins Tuesday afternoon.
