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.

Predicting the Winner of the Denver Broncos' Biggest Training Camp Battles

Jul 25 2014 4:32pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Chicago Bliss v Las Vegas Sin
Let's be honest: The Denver Broncos know what most of the depth chart is going to look like already, so training camp battles are mostly for depth. This is one team where the top-end positions are pretty much decided. Even the new guys—DeMarcus Ware, T.J. Ward, Aqib Talib, Emmanuel Sanders—know where they stand. They'll all start. That being said, depth is huge in the NFL, and it often wins games—and even Super Bowls. ...

Broncos training camp: Sylvester Williams, Broncos defense play takeaway on Day Two

Jul 25 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

Kansas City Chiefs v Denver Broncos
The defense took over on the second day of Denver Broncos training camp. On a hot Friday in Dove Valley that ran from the morning to the early afternoon, Broncos players participated in the second practice of 2014 training camp. As the heat reached its crescendo, so did the Broncos defense, building upon previous plays to continue to stifle and frustrate the offenses led by Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler. A pressure one play became a holding penal ...

Ranking the 7 Biggest Upgrades the Denver Broncos Made This Offseason

Jul 24 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Philadelphia Eagles v Dallas Cowboys
The Denver Broncos came up short in 2013. Losing the Super Bowl 43-8 was a tough pill to swallow for Broncos Country—the fans, the players, the coaches, etc. Denver learned what they needed to upgrade this offseason, and they made several strides to improve the team through free agency and the 2014 NFL draft. The roster looks quite a bit different this year—on both sides of the ball. With Peyton Manning at quarterback ...

Arizona Diamondbacks Photo Day
1. Manning has everything, Brady has nothing … again One of the most underrated coaches in football, Denver's John Fox, recently said something that was highly accurate. Fox explained that quarterback Peyton Manning is capable of having an even better season than the last one, in which he threw for 7 cabillion yards and 80 trillion touchdowns.  "I think so, we talk about that every day," Fox said when asked by the NFL Network if Manning can get better this se ...

Meet Tyrone Crawford, Dallas Cowboys Defensive Tackle Set to Breakout in 2014

Jul 22 2014 8:04pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Philadelphia Eagles v Dallas Cowboys
Defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford is as big of a mystery as you’ll find in Dallas. He wasn’t a highly touted prospect coming out of college, and he certainly isn’t coming off of a season that flashed brilliance. Instead, Crawford is coming off of a season-ending injury and has only appeared in 16 games over the past two seasons—none of which he started. Yet, despite the unknown, Crawford may be the key to the revival of the Dallas defense. A 2 ...

Probably the biggest storyline(video) heading into Denver Broncos training camp is how all the new faces on the defensive side of the ball start to gel together.
