DeMarcus Ware Says Transition to Defensive End Will be Easy
The Dallas Cowboys began off-season workouts last week.
DeMarcus Ware is ready for the season and to make the transition from 3-4 outside linebacker to 4-3 defensive end in the Tampa Cover 2 defense.
“We’re excited,” Ware said. “We’re ready. There have been some changes, but they’ve been changes for the good. I feel like everybody on the team has grasped that concept. Let’s get ready for the season.”
That’s good to hear because when the Cowboys decided to fire Rob Ryan and replace him with Monte Kiffin, not all the Cowboys agreed with the move.
“I think it’s going to be an easy transition,” Ware said. “There are three or four defensive fronts you’ve got to learn. Everything else comes off of technique and effort.”
Ware doesn’t seem fazed by the transition to defensive end and he shouldn’t. He is one of the NFL’s top pass rushers and the move to defensive end should help him get back to being the team’s and possibly the league’s sack leader.
Without a doubt, the Cowboys will need Ware to be a disruptive force on defense for this Tampa Cover 2 to work. It relies heavily on the pass rush and the fact that Ware will no longer be asked to drop back in coverage on third down has me excited.
Ware will now be able to pin his ears back and do what he does best; shed the tackle and destroy quarterbacks. He’ll need to, too. After all, it was he who said everyone on the team needed to step up.
He needs to lead the way.
