NFL: Cowboys' DeMarcus Ware Says Move to DE Could Extend Career

Jul 22 2013, 2:50am CDT | by

The Dallas Cowboys' DeMarcus Ware says the move to defensive end could actually help keep him healthy during the NFL season.

DeMarcus Ware of the Dallas Cowboys says the move to defensive end could actually help keep him healthy during the NFL season. 

According to Kevin Patra of NFL.com, Ware had to play through a torn labrum in his right shoulder for most of 2012. The injury hampered his play and had to have surgery this offseason. He believes the switch from 3-4 outside linebacker to 4-3 defensive end will pay dividends in terms of prolonging his pro football career

"At outside linebacker, there is a lot more moving parts, so to me, I feel like it's easier ot get hurt. But at defensive end, you're not moving as much, but the thing is you are using more of your technique, you're using more of your sort of savviness to make plays. For me - being able to be more fundamentally sound - I think for me should actually keep me more healthy during the season. Yes, I feel (the move) could actually extend my career."

ESPN's Todd Archer also writes Ware's condition has improved and was all set for training camp which began on July 21 in Oxnard, Ca. Ware himself verified this while sporting Reebok's ATV 19 shoe at a workout last week. 

"I'll be out there doing everything from all the drills to all the plays they want me to do."

Jon Machota of the Dallas News writes a switch from the 3-4 to the 4-3 defensive scheme will hopefully create more turnovers for the Cowboys' defense. With only 16 forced turnovers in the 2012 NFL season, only three teams had fewer than Dallas. 

Ware led Dallas with 11.5 sacks and became a Pro Bowler for the seventh straight season but begged off from the actual game due to last season's injury.

NFL Week 3 Predictions: Forecasting Underdogs Who Will Score Upset Victories

Sep 17 2014 2:59pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Although Week 2 of the NFL season was lighter on huge upsets than the opening week, there is reason to believe that underdogs will reign supreme once again in Week 3. Plenty of solid teams are being given points by the oddsmakers, which increases the likelihood that some betting favorites will lose outright. Observers are still trying to get a handle on what every NFL team is all about, which is why the early part of the season presents the best opportunity for betto ...

Knile Davis' Emergence Allows Chiefs to Be Patient with Jamaal Charles' Recovery

Sep 17 2014 12:51pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid announced Monday that star running back Jamaal Charles has a high ankle sprain. Charles is unlikely to play with the injury Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, leaving second-year running back Knile Davis to start in his place. Charles is easily the Chiefs’ most valuable player, so losing him even for one game is a significant loss. Losing him for multiple games—as may be the case—would be even more damaging but would be a ...

Worst Ever? Rolando McClain-Led Dallas Cowboys Defense Proving Doubters Wrong

Sep 17 2014 1:58am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

To say expectations were low for the Cowboys defense coming into the 2014 would be a gross understatement. Not only did the Dallas Cowboys give up the most yards in the league last year, but they gave up the most in team history and the third-most in league history. And while owner Jerry Jones joked that the Cowboys had to be better on defense this season because they couldn't be any worse, there were peopl ...

Broncos players emphasize the win, improvements, not the mistakes

Sep 16 2014 11:30am CDT | Source: milehighreport

A win is a win is a win is a win. The Denver Broncos come away with a 'W' against the Kansas City Chiefs despite their best efforts to beat themselves with penalties and missed opportunities, but players keep pledging that these mistakes and miscues are temporary. Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chiefs was anything but satisfying, but if you didn't watch the game and only listened to players' comments, you might have a different impre ...

Undisciplined Broncos Defense Is Cause for Concern in Quest for Repeat AFC Champ

Sep 14 2014 9:51pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It’s Super Bowl or bust for a team that fell one game shy of that goal last season. Everyone inside and outside the organization understands that the expectations for the Denver Broncos couldn’t be higher. On Sunday, the Broncos managed to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 24-17 at home to move to 2-0, but it was far from a dominant performance. The play of an undisciplined defense is especially cause for concern for a team that wants to be able to beat the NF ...

Grade the Broncos' 24-17 win over the Chiefs

Sep 14 2014 8:25pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

Broncos 24, Chiefs 17: Grade Denver's Week 2 performance. Another three touchdown, zero interception performance by Peyton Manning, but another nailbiting victory that didn't feel like it had to be that close. It was great to see Manning so efficient and surgical in the first half, but he all but disappeared in the second (191 yards in the first half vs. 51 in the second). There wasn't a clear reason for the dropoff in production, either; Manning and the offense just s ...

DENVER — Terrance Knighton batted away Alex Smith’s fourth-and-goal pass to Dwayne Bowe with 15 seconds left, preserving the Denver Broncos’ 24-17 win over the scrappy Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The Broncos (2-0) thought they had sealed the win twice earlier on the drive. Aqib Talib’s pick-6 was negated by Quanterus Smith’s hold. Then, Nate Irving’s fumble recovery following DeMarcus Ware’s sack and strip was ruled an incomplete pass afte ...
