IRVING, Texas – Former Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware took the time to once again say farewell to the organization Monday afternoon. Ware was released after nine seasons last Tuesday, and he signed a three-year deal with the Denver Broncos a day later.
In the statement, which he posted to Twitter, Ware once again thanked Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones and former coach Bill Parcells, among others, for drafting him No. 11 overall in the 2005 NFL Draft.
The statement reads:
"I know I've been quiet on here, but I'm baaaack! Really excited about my new opportunity with the Denver Broncos but need to back up and once again thank Mr. Jones, Bill Parcells, and the Dallas Cowboys for giving me a chance in this league & everything the organization did for me through the years. I was honored to wear the Star alongside my former Cowboys teammates & will always hold a special place in my heart for the Cowboys Nation and the Dallas community. Looking forward to the next chapter in my career with the Broncos. God Bless! – DWare."
Ware departed Dallas with the Cowboys' all-time franchise sack record, 117, as well as seven Pro Bowl nods and four first-team All-Pro selections.
