Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker/defensive end DeMarcus Ware always tended to be rather quiet, and the whole leadership thing was likely outside of his comfort zone. He was a wonderful player, a good lead-by-example personality. The voice was lacking. He is also a decent man.
Ware, who recently signed a three-year, $30 million contract with the Denver Broncos, will likely come back to AT&T Stadium one day to have his name put in the Ring of Honor. He should.
On Twitter this afternoon, Ware posted from his account - @DeMarcusWare - a nice note to the Cowboys.
Ware was always a pro; he never stole money, and he never mailed it in. He may never have won big, but his legacy with the Cowboys will be that of a great player, and a good man who deserved to win a few playoff games.
You may not be a Broncos fan, but it's hard not to be a fan of DeMarcus Ware.
