We as fans will not be able to feel his presence on the football field anymore. The player has so far not revealed whether he will be involved in managing or training any player or will take the job of a free agent or a manager. He only said that he left the game when a lot was still on the plate.
It's time ... After a lot of thought and prayer, I've decided to accept the unknown and retire from my NFL career. Tempting opportunities still present themselves for me to play and I feel better than I have in years. However, long term health and quality of life outweigh the spark and passion to play that I once had. With that, I take this opportunity to thank all of the people in my life who had a hand in molding me into a great player and the God fearing man I am today. I thank the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos for opportunities to experience what greatness feels like. I will miss my teammates, coaches, and fans, who supported me over the years. I’m hanging up my cleats and beginning the journey to my next destination. "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith." (2 Timothy 4:7, KJV
The player who missed only one game in his entire 12 years career will be missed forever in the field starting from today.
His manager John Elway hinted that he may never return to the field again as:
He's going to test the market to see what's out there. I told him that's probably the best thing to do at this point in time and we'll stay in touch and see where he is.
DeMarcus was playing as an unrestricted free agent after his contract with Broncos expired last week. He had a lot on his table but he decided to get out of the team and leave the game on a good note. He is the eighth-ranked player in all NFL rank.
Ware’s 138.5 career sacks are likely to make him the first-ballot Hall-of-Famer after he is officially out of the League as DeMarcus is one of only three players ever with 11+ sacks in 7 straight seasons.
