Cowboys fans have been waiting all offseason for a huge contract extension for the sack leader DeMarcus Ware. Well, I’m sorry to tell you, I’m not here to give the good news. But according to a blog on the Dallas Morning News Ware says things are moving along.
Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison came in with a $51 million deal with $20 million guaranteed, while Washington paid Albert Haynesworth $100 million with $41 million guaranteed.
“I feel like it’s somewhere in there,” Ware said. “It’s not 51. It might not be 100. It’s somewhere between the two. Maybe it’s 94.”
“I’m not frustrated because at the end of the day I know I can play,” said Ware, who led the league with 20 sacks in 2008. “Like I say, I’m a Ferrari. The only thing I do is appreciate. It’s on them to get it done.”
I love Ware’s attitude on the subject. Did you know that DeMarcus is set to make only $1 million dollars this year? That is certainly unacceptable. I believe he will get his money and be well rewarded.
