DeMarcus Ware released by Dallas Cowboys

Layne Murdoch

The Cowboys have cut DeMarcus Ware.

All-Pro defensive end/outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware has requested the Dallas Cowboys to decide his future by Tuesday's 4PM ET start of free agency.

It looks as though they will honor that and release him, according to multiple reports:

Ware had been rumored to be on the chopping block this offseason, and he appears unwilling to take a paycut. the Cowboys would create $7.432 million in immediate cap space by cutting Ware now, but also $8.571 million in 2014 dead money. That number would fall to $3.25 million if Ware was designated as a post-June 1 cut.

Despite a down year in 2013, Ware would immediately be one of the most sought-after defenders on the open market now that Michael Johnson and Michael Bennett have new deals.

Ware had a career-low six sacks and missed three games because of injury for the first time in his career last season. He also finished with a carer-low 40 tackles.
