Cowboys owner Jerry Jones won’t rule out the possibility of having to possibly release DeMarcus Ware this offseason since they don’t have much cap room to work with.
“There’s no question when you are where we are on the cap, even though we’ve had some new cap space added, and you have a defensive player that’s your highest paid defensive player, and he hasn’t been on the field much the last two years, that has to be considered,” Jones said on ESPN’s SportsCenter. “You can’t have it all.”
Jones says the tough decisions that come along with being an NFL general manager make his job exciting.
“We’ve got those kinds of decisions to make, which is a part of what makes it so exciting in the NFL.”
Jones admits the fact that Ware has been limited by injuries will factor into his future in Dallas.
“He’s had a tough time getting on the practice field because of various injuries,” Jones said. “All of that we have to weigh with how much of that has impacted him for the future as well as where he is in his career and with his age.
“Those are the ingredients in the stew. Now we’ve got to stir it up and see where we’re going. It will be a very difficult call for us because of how much salary cap he uses.”
