    Too many years like the Newman contract.

    Takes him way past 30. Already 27.

      We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

        Meh. It's an NFL contract. Only guaranteed thing is the bonus. Plus, he's not at a position that guys slow down quickly... like CB. Or a position that gets him beat up like RB.

          Pass rushers are expensive. Ware is not only elite, but possibly the best at it. It took a decade to find a double digit sack leader, and he's done it 3 times. This contract is what you get if you want to keep him. I'm glad it's not Haynesworth level. I knew it would be more than Harrison, but it's not so expensive.

          And Rob think about it this way with Ware's age. Great pass rushers are still good in their 30s. Reggie White, LT, Bruce Smith, Strahan, and Jason Taylor have all had good success in their 30s. Ware isn't the type of rusher like Julius Peppers or Jevon Kearse. He's more than just athleticism.

            I have no worries about him lasting for at least 5 more years.

              Whoops nevermind. I thought it was $78 million because on NFL Network they just said 6 years at $13 mil a season which is 78. Damn $118 is too big. I don't like the sound of that. That's gotta be with singing bonus included.

                Ware will be fine, look at James Harrison. Only thing that could hurt him would be playing on the turf.

                    I'm cool with D players getting paid more. A ton of QBs that get big contracts aren't even worth it, so the D needs some love too.

                      Great news for the franchise as he should retire as a Cowboy. Ware's a great player and person he deserves to be rewarded.

                          Here's just how good Ware has been for us when stacked up against all time greats...

                          DeMarcus Ware vs. All-Time Greats:

                          Sacks in First 6 seasons as Starter:

                          Demarcus Ware: 5 (1st)
                          Lawrence Taylor: 4
                          Joe Greene: 3
                          Derrick Thomas: 4

                          Double Digit Sack Seasons in First 6 Seasons as Starter:
                          Demarcus Ware: 5 (T-1st)
                          Lawrence Taylor: 4
                          Joe Greene: 5

                          Joe Greene: 0
                          Derrick Thomas: 1

                          I think it's safe to say that not only is Ware on pace for a Hall of Fame career, he's also on pace to be one of, if not the, Greatest 3-4 Outside Linebackers in the History of the NFL.

                            That's damn impressive, considering how well of an open field tackler he is in the running game, also. Ware for HOF!

                              I was thinking about making a post about this on the GB. But Ware's 5 straight seasons in double digit sacks put him in some seriously select company. Just one player during the 00s did it: Simeon Rice. Not Freeney, not Peppers, not Strahan, not Jason Taylor not Warren Sapp, none of those guys. The only guys that I can find who have done it before are Rice, Reggie White (an unbelievable NINE straight years with double digits), LT (seven straight) and Bruce Smith (one streak of five, one streak of seven). There might be a few others, as I just checked all the great pass rushers who came to mind, but that gives you an idea of the pace that DeMarcus has set for himself.

                              The dude is a monster and is on a level by himself among pass rushers, imo.
