DeMarcus Ware has been having himself a great few weeks.
First, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame at the beginning of the month.
Now it turns out that he will be getting honored again this year for his achievements during a stellar NFL career.
The Dallas Cowboys hosted their Season Kickoff event today and team owner Jerry Jones took advantage of the opportunity to make a big announcement.
During the event, Jones announced that former Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware would be the next addition to the team’s Ring of Honor.

DeMarcus Ware was an absolute force during his time with the Dallas Cowboys.
In 9 years with the team, Ware was named an All-Pro 7 times including 4 appearances on the 1st team. Those seasons with the Cowboys also resulted in 7 Pro Bowl appearances and he was in the top 5 of the Defensive Player of the Year voting twice in that span.
As a Cowboy, he led the league in sacks twice, including a 20-sack season in 2008. He also had 7 consecutive 10-sack seasons from 2006 to 2012.
In total, he made 117.5 sacks and 578 tackles in 141 games for the Dallas Cowboys before finishing out his NFL career with the Denver Broncos.
He managed to put together a couple of Pro Bowl seasons during his time in Denver, but it is his dominance while he was a Cowboys that will be what his NFL career is remembered for.
DeMarcus Ware was once one of the most feared defenders in the NFL and now he’ll forever be enshrined in the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor.
