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.

Coaching to Blame for Denver Broncos' Defensive Struggles Sunday

Nov 4 2014 7:45am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

In a 43-21 rout by the New England Patriots, the Denver Broncos had issues on offense, defense and special teams. It’s not often that a team as good as the Broncos loses, and it’s hard to point the finger at one particular unit as to why. Although it was a team loss if there ever were one, the most concerning performance was that of a defense that came into the game as one of the best in the league—ranked sixth in points per game allowed through Week 8. That wasn’t supposed to happen ...

From a QB controversy in Tampa Bay to Arian Foster's health, here's the latest NFL news and updates from Monday. When the Dallas Cowboys and Dez Bryant cut off contract talks at the start of the regular season, it appeared as though the two sides wouldn't return to the bargaining table until the offseason.

Rams out played and out schemed 49ers offense

Nov 3 2014 2:57pm CST | Source: ninersnation

49ers continue to have offensive woes. We look at the offensive line struggles, the schemes and the execution. Coming fresh off the bye week, it seemed as the 49ers offense was still on vacation. Many have focused on the last two minutes of the game at the 1-yard line, with four downs to win the game. Then, there was the officiating. But, as frustrating as it was to watch, the offensive p ...

Broncos 21, Patriots 43: Day-after reactions

Nov 3 2014 1:00pm CST | Source: milehighreport

It's games like this that requires a good night's sleep to think clearly. I thought a lot about how I would do these reactions. Could they be "Instant Reactions" i.e. immediately after the game? Or should I sit and stew on my thought processes overnight? I was conflicted because going into this game, I knew the Broncos were going to lose. New England hasn't lost at home to an AFC team since 2006. That is an impressive eight years of AFC dominance. I likened ...

Horse Tracks: The Denver Broncos picking up the pieces and moving on

Nov 3 2014 6:00am CST | Source: milehighreport

The Denver Broncos were annihilated 43-21 by the New England Patriots on Sunday. The players need to pick up the pieces of that game and move on to work towards getting back into position to secure homefield advantage. They'll need to be pretty much perfect from here on out to do it. The Denver Broncos were able to get past their annual house of horrors trip to the Northeast with yet anot ...

What's Wrong with the San Francisco 49ers O-Line?

Nov 2 2014 10:18pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Exactly what happened with the San Francisco 49ers offensive line during the team's 13-10 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday? Moreover, what is wrong with the O-line over the entire course of this season? This might be the preeminent question that determines the fate of San Francisco's 2014 season, made no clearer than the debacle showcased in Week 9 against St. Louis. The O-line gave up a total of eight sacks for 54 yards on Sunday. This was against a Rams defense that ...

Oct 31 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

Looking back to the first game in the Peyton Manning/Tom Brady rivalry, with a peek at what the Broncos were up to for perspective. The Manning/Brady rivalry is bigger than the Colts/Patriots or Broncos/Patriots matchups ever will be. The week these two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks face off is like a yearly love fest for sports media. Who's the best quarterback, who had the best teams, coaches, luck, etc. questions will never go away. One of the things that ...

Von Miller the Patriot killer

Oct 31 2014 11:30am CDT | Source: milehighreport

Of all the weapons that have been talked about this week, there's one that has consistently made big play after big play against the New England Patriots. No, we're not talking DT or Welker, this Patriot killer is Von Miller and he has made Tom Brady's life miserable the past couple of meetings. Sing with me folks: In the Bronco/Patriot rivalry Von Miller gave to us, 18 tackles, 11 drive stops, 5 tackles for loss, 4 quarterback s ...

Ultimate fans predicting a blowout in Foxboro...and we're not talking about snow

Oct 31 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: milehighreport

It's Patriots Week and that means Manning-Brady talk dominates the airwaves, but Broncos fans know this is a team game, and neither Manning's brilliance or Brady's efficiency can win by itself. The team whose offense scores a lot of touchdowns, whose defense creates turnovers and whose special teams doesn't screw up (ahem!) is the team that wins. And guess what? Our ultimate fans are pi ...
