Broncos or Cowboys? Which is Hall of Famer DeMarcus Ware's ultimate team?

DeMarcus Ware will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame at noon eastern on Saturday.

Him getting the gold jacket he received Friday night seemed like a forgone conclusion even 10 years ago.

 All Ware accomplished in his 12-year career was earn four All-Pro awards, nine Pro Bowl bids, one Super Bowl trophy, and a spot on the All-2000s Team.

It’s a brilliant career that landed Ware No. 9 on the NFL’s all-time sack leader list (138.5 career sacks)

 which spanned nine seasons with the Cowboys before concluding in Denver for three additional seasons.

While Dallas gets credit for drafting and developing Ware, it’s the Broncos who got the honor of giving the 2023 Hall of Famer his only Super Bowl trophy.

His time in Denver was a rousing success and the love between Ware and the Broncos clearly flows both ways.

His love for both cities likely prompted Ware to go into the Hall of Fame as a shared commodity. Both NFL franchises get to claim him because he proudly claims both of them.

But when the dust settles and fans look back a decade from now – two decades from now – will Ware be remembered more as a Bronco or as a Cowboy?

The Case for Denver The argument for the Broncos begins and ends with the Super Bowl.

The Case for Dallas With the No. 11 pick in the 2005 draft, Dallas made Ware a Cowboy. For as great as Ware projected as a pro, the decision to draft him wasn’t unanimous. 

As a player, Ware was both a fearsome pass rusher and a wonderful human. His sincerity and kindness were again on display when he sang the National Anthem in honor of his friend Demaryius Thomas, who passed away unexpectedly in 2021.
