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.
