Cowboys Announce 4:30 p.m. (CDT) Press Conference

The Cowboys have called a press conference for 4:30 p.m. (CDT) here at Valley Ranch today to announce a "personnel move" with a player, team spokesman Rich Dalrymple said here Monday.

It's not just a personnel move, but more like THE move that's been the talk of the town for about a year now.

The Cowboys are expected to announce the signing of DeMarcus Ware to a long-term contract, possibly making him the highest-paid defensive player in football.

Ware has come on strong here in the last two games, recording four sacks after a slow start saw him with no sacks in four games. Ware led the NFL with 20.0 sacks last year, becoming just the sixth player in league history to register 20.

Remarkably, Ware's success has come at the same time he's been injured. The outside linebacker is playing through a stress fracture in his foot, although it's hard to tell, considering he's dropped opposing quarterbacks four times, along with two forced fumbles.

Ware had another year on his contract after this season, and if NFL does not have a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between now and the end of the season, it's likely Ware will be a restricted free agent for two more seasons.

Still, Ware nor the Cowboys wanted to wait that long.
