This week they announced the official retirement of Denver Broncos, Demarcus Ware. But he didn’t retire as a Bronco. He retired as a Dallas Cowboy. Here’s the situation.

Demarcus Ware played for the Dallas Cowboys from 2005-2013. He was a first round draft pick right out of Troy college by the Cowboys. Demarcus was a 9x pro bowler, 2x NFL sack leader and the 2011 NFC defensive player of the year. He played with them for 11 years and then left. He was the Cowboys all time leader in quarterback sacks with 116. He then went to Denver for 2 years and won Superbowl 50 against the Panthers in 2015.

But he came back. Ware signed a one-day honorary contract to retire as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. He said his heart was in Dallas and that the fans made everything for him. Ware gave a serious shout out to those who root for the Star. As a Dallas fan myself I’m really glad he came home even if it was just to retire.
