DeMarcus Ware Signs One-Day Contract To Retire With Dallas Cowboys

Back in March, future Hall of Famer DeMarcus Ware announced his retirement from the NFL after 12 seasons, 138.5 sacks, and a culminating Super Bowl victory with the Broncos.

When the monster defender who is 8th on the all-time sacks list decided to hang up his spikes, rumors circulate about the possibility of him returning home to the Dallas Cowboys to take a one-day contract and retiring as a member of the organization that drafted him and for which he dominated offenses during his first nine NFL seasons.

On Monday, Ware appeared at a press conference at the Cowboys’ new facility, The Star in Frisco, alongside Jerry and Stephen Jones, as well as Cowboys coach Jason Garrett.

The team also announced via its official Twitter account that Ware did retire as a member of the organization.
