DeMarcus Ware could be set for an exit from the Dallas Cowboys as financial restrictions may force the NFC side to release their top paid defensive player.
Owner Jerry Jones was recently quoted as saying that he can't 'fathom' a Cowboys defense without Ware but now that looks like what he will have to do as his franchise is almost a reported $21 million over the salary cap.
Releasing ware would free up $7.4 million dollars and with Dallas expected to earn a further $16 million next season would seem like a solution to their problems.
Jones told the Dallas Morning News: "There's no question when you are where we are on the cap, even though we've had some new cap space added, and you have a defensive player that's your highest-paid defensive player, and he hasn't been on the field much the last two years, that has to be considered,"
For many years people have questioned Jones' managing of the cap and today's quotes seem to be the system coming full circle and are the biggest hint Jones has given at Ware's likely departure..
Currently on the wrong side of 30 and off the back of his least successful season with the Cowboys where he missed three games and only got six sacks, Ware could now be the one most likely to leave Dallas.
