DeMarcus Ware "Loving" Defensive End

Ware is moving from outside linebacker to defensive end under defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin



    The Dallas Cowboys’ DeMarcus Ware is currently transitioning from 3-4 outside linebacker--the position he’s played his entire NFL career--to defensive end in Monte Kiffin’s 4-3, which happens to be the position he played in college. And, so far, so good.

    Ware told reporters this week that he’s quite enjoying his new (old) position.

    “You’re able to make a lot more plays because you’re playing defensive end,” Ware said, per the Dallas Morning News. “Sometimes you can get a little more one-on-ones with the tackles. You’re able to rush the passer, we’ll say 94 percent of the time, and I’m loving it.”

    Apparently, Ware’s health is not an issue. In order to demonstrate that his surgically repaired right shoulder is doing just fine, he recently posted a video to his Facebook page, which shows the four-time All-Pro in the weight room, raising 315 pounds from waist to chest 10 times.

    “I was just trying to show everybody that I am ready and my shoulder’s ready,” Ware said this week. “Just letting them know it’s OK.”
