The Dallas Cowboys have pushed a decision about DeMarcus Ware down the line for seasons. During that time the defensive lineman was one of the best in the NFL.

Now the 31-year-old Ware is coming off a season in which he dealt with injuries and a drop in play. The Cowboys pressed for cap space have informed Ware that he needs to take a paycut.

Ware is due $12.25 million this season and will county a whopping $13.75 million against the cap. While the Cowboys restructured the deals of Tony Romo, Sean Lee and Orlando Scandrick  the same will not happen this season for Ware.

Ware finished the 2013 season with a career low six sacks and 40 tackles in 13 games. Prior to 2013 Ware had recorded double digit sacks for seven straight seasons.
