Longtime Cowboys' pass rusher DeMarcus Ware is out in Dallas, according to reports.

According to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter, the Dallas Cowboys have released longtime outside linebacker/defensive end DeMarcus Ware.

Ware's release comes from the result of the Cowboys running seriously low on spending money. Entering this new league year, no team in the NFL had less salary cap space than the Cowboys. By cutting Ware, the Cowboys save over $7 million in cap space. You have to hand it to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones: there's nothing like having to cut one of the franchise's best talents in order to keep other players!

Ware is getting up there in age (he'll turn 32 in July) but there's no question he's still a very talented player. In his prime, he was one of the best defensive players in the league, if not the best. He was a player the Eagles certainly didn't enjoy having to face.

Now, as a free agent, Ware is free to sign with any team. And hey, the Eagles could use an outside linebacker...
