The Dallas Cowboys had a special guest attend their practice session this Thursday.
DeMarcus Ware, a former outside linebacker who’s soon to be a Hall of Famer, joined the team during their OTAs on the day and was pictured standing next to pass rusher Micah Parsons.
The Super Bowl winner is a favorite among Dallas fans, though he didn’t win his sole championship with the team. But he was part of their roster from 2005-2013 after they selected him as the 11th overall pick in 05.
Ware registered 576 tackles, 185 quarterback hits, 117 sacks, and 32 forced fumbles as a member of the Cowboys before joining the Denver Broncos on the back of his release in 2014, helping them win the Super Bowl.
He announced his retirement in 2017 and signed a one-day contract so he could retire as a Cowboy. The 40-year-old will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this August.
The Athletic’s Joe Machota shared a photo of the former player working out with Parsons on Thursday afternoon. Ware had previously revealed having advised Parsons during an interview on 105.3 The Fan.
“Talking to a lot of the guys like Micah in the offseason, I tell them ‘you need to learn new positions.’ As a pass rusher, when it’s pass rush time, when is your go time, you need to learn a little bit of the tackle position,” he said, (H/T The Dallas Morning News).
There’s a lot that Parsons can soak up by spending time with Ware. The Cowboys will hope that turns out to be the case.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
