In somewhat surprising news from the NFL, DeMarcus Ware has been cut by the Dallas Cowboys. Obviously, his talent wasn't the problem. His paycheck, however, was. Ware was making too much money on a team that has serious cap issues. So where will he land next? Here are the top five teams in the running to sign him:

The Bears need to seriously upgrade their defense and Ware would certainly help them get to the quarterback more often. But since Chicago has already inked Lamarr Houston, the chances of Ware going to the Windy City have decreased.

The Falcons were terrible at getting to the QB in 2013. They finished fourth from the bottom, with only 32 sacks on the season. Ware would be great addition, if the price is right.

Many think the Texans will draft Jadeveon Clowney. If that's not their plan, they've got a great opportunity to pair Ware with JJ Watt.

It's pretty clear that the Broncos are going to land a big name pass-rusher. Will it be Jared Allen? Or could it be Ware? If Ware is willing to play for less than Allen, he could find his new home in the Mile High City.

You can never rule the Patriots out when it comes to big name/declining free agents. They have an ability to squeeze all the solid production remaining from players, while giving them a chance to win a ring. If that's important to Ware and he's willing to put team first, New England makes a lot of sense.
