SAN ANTONIO – This space is usually reserved for the spectacular, but we’ll go with flawless fundamentals from Wednesday’s practice.

It’s not often that you see DeMarcus Ware get stoned in 1-on-1 pass-rushing drills. Doug Free pulled off that feat.

Ware tried an inside-out move, but Free didn’t bite on the fake. He set his feet, waited for Ware to come his way and delivered a strong two-hand punch.

One of the NFL’s premier pass rushers was stopped in his tracks.

The Cowboys believe the 6-foot-6, 320-pound Free, who performed well in seven starts at right tackle last season, is well suited to protect Tony Romo’s blind side because of his quick feet. But Ware has mentioned that Free is much more powerful than people think.

“Man, he’s strong,” Ware said Tuesday.

Free proved Ware right, at the All-Pro’s expense, the next day.
