Last month, DeMarcus Ware announced his retirement from the NFL after 12 seasons. He cited his health as a main reason for stepping away, ending what’s sure to be a Hall of Fame career.
Although his last season came with the Broncos, Ware is retiring as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. He signed with the team that drafted him on Monday and attended Dallas’ pre-draft news conference to retire with the Cowboys.

During the news conference, Jerry Jones called Ware a “perfect player.” After all, he did record 117 of his 138.5 career sacks in Dallas – all of which Jones got a very close look at.
Jason Garrett said the Cowboys are looking for a player of Ware’s caliber in the draft this week, saying he’s a “once-in-a-generation player.” The Cowboys nearly reunited with Ware this offseason, too, which he admitted on Monday.
