Dallas Cowboys DeMarcus Ware to drop pay for salary cap

Published Add your comment

The salary cap is closing in and DeMarcus Ware may need to sacrifice some pay if he wants to stay with the Dallas Cowboys.

The six time pro bowl defensive end is at present expected to make $12.25 million for 2014 but the cowboys have said that they need to renegotiate.

The Cowboys obviously want to keep him in the team but need to make some allowances to get more room in their salary cap. He is currently the leader in sacks for the franchise.

He is still in contract until the 2015 season and was reported to make $27 million over the next two years, however he's not letting contracts get in the way of his recovery.

In an interview with ESPN he said: "My mentality is that I'm going to do what I need to do to try to help the team out the best I can where they're going to win and I want to win"

He is currently recovering from elbow surgery and despite being on IR is the veteran Dallas need to hang on to.
