Tuesday was the big day for free agency, and out of it came the news that the Dallas Cowboys have released superstar defensive end DeMarcus Ware.

Ware was set to earn more than $16 million in 2014, and this move saves the Cowboys $7.4 million against the salary cap.

“A decision like this, involving a man who is a cornerstone player in the history of your franchise, is extremely difficult,” Jerry Jones, the Cowboys’ owner and general manager, told ESPN Dallas.

The Cowboys drafted Ware 11th overall in the 2005 NFL Draft, and he made the Pro Bowl every year from 2006 to 2012. Ware’s 117 sacks in nine seasons is the most in Cowboys history.

Ware totaled 20 sacks in 2008 and 19.5 in 2011. Only the late Reggie White has more 15-plus sack seasons than Ware in NFL history.

The 32-year-old Ware struggled with injuries in 2013 and is currently recovering from elbow surgery.

So, what say you, Cowboys fans? Did Jerry make the right move? Let us know in the comments section below.
