Report: Cowboys release DE DeMarcus Ware

I don't dabble much with defensive-player fantasy leagues, but whether you are an IDP fan or just a fan of the NFL in general, you know this is big news. The Cowboys have released defensive end Demarcus Ware @DeMarcusWare. The move was first reported by Clarence Hill of the Cowboys' official website and followed up by many other NFL reporters.
In his nine years with the Cowboys, Ware was a seven-time Pro Bowler, a four-time first-team All-Pro and led the league in sacks twice. He was a member of the NFL's 2000s all-decade eam.
This move gives the Cowboys about $7.5 million in cap space.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Cowboys wanted Ware to take a pay cut; Ware wouldn't hear it. So, here we are. In a financial sense, the move is not totally surprising, especially because Ware turns 32 in July, was bothered by nagging injuries for most of last season, and the Cowboys had almost no cap space. But just thinking about the Cowboys' defense without DeMarcus Ware in general, that is a strange reality.
