There have been some interesting moves so far this offseason, and it has only begun. Some have questioned the moves, thats completely normal. But there is one thing that absolutely no one will question that must get done very soon… giving DeMarcus Ware a huge contract extension.
Everyone knows he deserves it and no matter how big it turns out to be, I don’t think anyone will object to the price. What exactly is DeMarcus Ware worth?
In my opinion, he is priceless. There is no doubt that he’s worth more than the $100mil Albert Haynesworth got from the Redskins. I think Demarcus said it perfectly: “Oh, yeah, I’m ready for Christmas. I have been giving gifts. It’s time for me to get a gift.”
Ware’s hard work on the field and clean image off the field make him one of the most respected men in the league. Millions fell in love with him last summer when the “Warewolf” sang lullabies to his baby daughter on HBO’s Hard Knocks. He’s simply an amazing person all around.
With all of the drama that continuously surrounds Dallas, its a breath of fresh air to have a guy like DeMarcus Ware on the team.
Ware was the 11th overall pick in the 2005 draft, he received a five-year, $13 million contract with $10 million guaranteed. Did you know that Ware (before a new contract) would only make one million dollars in 2009? That’s just not acceptable, not for the man who led the league in sacks with 20 in 2008. Ware is only 26, and definitely has alot of game left. He has 63.5 sacks and 299 tackles over 64 NFL games. Michael Strahan better get ready because Ware will beat his single-season sack record.
I know I don’t have to convince anyone, and I know that Jerry knows this is top priority. I’m just waiting for the details of the best money spent in Dallas in a long time.
