Ware and Cowboys Close to New Deal

It has been reported that Demarcus Ware is close to a new long term deal with the Cowboys. This would make me very happy since I believe he is the heart of the Cowboys defense and the best in the NFL.

“Yeah, we are getting close,” Ware wrote. “Looking to stay with the ‘Boys for a long time to come.”

On Ware’s Twitter page he joked that the contract could be around $94 million. The 94 being Ware’s jersey number of course. It is thought that Ware’s new contract could pass the one just signed by the Steelers James Harrison which  was six years, $51.75 million.

Ware is only 26 years old and registered 20 sacks in 2008 along with six forced fumbles and 84 tackles in his fourth season. He has a total of 53 1/2 sacks in his short NFL career.

    It was not said as far as when. Just that they are getting close to an agreement and it should be done soon. Hopefully before camp opens up.
