Could Eagles make a play for Ware?
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- It was not surprising that the Dallas Cowboys parted ways with DeMarcus Ware, but it's still strange to believe he will no longer be with the club that drafted him in 2005.
But could the Cowboys end up seeing Ware twice a year?
ESPN NFL analyst Louis Riddick wonders if Ware could end up with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Now wouldn't that be a kick to the Cowboys and their fans to see Ware end up in Philadelphia?
The Eagles play a 3-4, which might be a better fit for Ware than playing defensive end in a 4-3. They have Trent Cole playing outside linebacker and he had eight sacks in 2013, but he seems to be more of a defensive end playing outside linebacker than a true outside linebacker.
Cole has been solid. Ware has been special.
According to a source close to Ware, the seven-time Pro Bowler will be selective in where he looks and would like to make a decision quickly. The Eagles have cap space. They have a team that looks to be on the rise with Chip Kelly.
It might be something to keep watching.
