    Tony Romo and Jason Witten want what DeMarcus Ware now owns: A Super Bowl ring. 

    Back in February, Ware was able to sack Cam Newton twice as his Denver Broncos pulled off the upset win over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

    Ware, Romo and Witten were Cowboys teammates for nine years. Now Ware is a world champion. Romo had nothing but praise for the former Dallas linebacker.

    "Ware is one of the best teammates I've ever had," he said. "He's such a great guy. Couldn't help but be happy for him. I hope it goes from his turn to some of his old teammates turn. He deserves it."

    Witten and Ware lived near each other in Tarrant County. The Cowboys all time receptions leader admitted his was envious of Ware's new hardware. Witten smiled as he said, "We were teammates for a long time. It's great to see a teammate and a buddy achieve that goal. I'm proud of him. A little jealous."

    Romo and Witten are both now in their 14th NFL seasons.  They have never played in a NFC Championship Game.
