DeMarcus Ware Named All-Pro

Ware is the only Cowboy to make the 2011 All-Pro team



    Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware has been named to the Associated Press’ All-Pro team, the only Cowboy to make the cut and one of just three members of “America’s Team” to receive a vote, ESPN Dallas reports.

    Ware finished the season with 19.5 sacks, just a half sack shy of becoming the first player since sacks became an official statistic in 1982 to record multiple 20-plus sack seasons. Even Ware saw his share of struggles this season, as he tied for the lead on the team with ten penalties, but with the sacks, 58 tackles and two forced fumbles, he remained a force deemed worthy of the honor.

    The other Cowboys to receive votes (actually according to the report, one vote a piece) were nose tackle Jay Ratliff and rookie right tackle Tyron Smith.
