In a fitting tribute to his remarkable career, DeMarcus Ware, already a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2023, is set to receive another prestigious honor. The Dallas Cowboys have announced that Ware will be enshrined into their Ring of Honor during the 2023 season. This announcement, made by owner Jerry Jones, marks a significant milestone in Ware's illustrious career.
A Legacy Etched in the Ring of Honor
Ware's induction into the Cowboys Ring of Honor is a testament to his exceptional contributions to the team. He will become the 20th player and 23rd overall member of this esteemed group, and the first inductee since Gil Brandt in 2018. Notably, he will also be the first player enshrined since Darren Woodson in 2015. Although no official date has been announced for Ware's enshrinement, it is anticipated to take place on November 30, when the Cowboys host the Seattle Seahawks.
A Career Worth Celebrating
Over his 12-season NFL career, Ware has amassed an impressive list of accolades. With nine Pro Bowl selections, four All-Pro honors, membership on the Hall of Fame All-2000s Team, and a staggering 138.8 sacks, 657 tackles, and 35 forced fumbles, his record speaks for itself. His nine seasons with the Dallas Cowboys were particularly noteworthy, as he holds the team record with 117 sacks.
A Fitting Tribute to a Football Legend
The decision to induct Ware into the Ring of Honor is a fitting tribute to a player who has given so much to the sport. It is a recognition of his talent, dedication, and contribution to the Dallas Cowboys. As fans, we eagerly anticipate the moment when Ware and fellow 2023 Hall of Famer Chuck Howley receive their Hall of Fame rings at halftime of the game. This will undoubtedly be a momentous occasion, marking the culmination of Ware's extraordinary career.
