DeMarcus Ware ready for move to defensive end
One of the big stories regarding the Cowboys' switch from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3 is the position changes it means for several players.
|DeMarcus Ware talked about the Cowboys as underachievers, turnovers and Rob Ryan on Mike & Mike. Ben and Skin discuss. |
Thursday, during an interview with the NFL Network, Ware said he would have no problems making the transition.
"In college I played the 4-3," said Ware, who played at Troy. "It's usually just being aggressive (in) getting to the quarterback, stopping the run from a defensive end standpoint. But I've been playing the 3-4 for eight years, so I have gotten comfortable with that."
Ware, who weighs 254 pounds, said he wouldn't have to put on extra weight to play defensive end.
"So now it's like, where I'm I going to fit again?" he said. "Can I play defensive end? Once you put the pads on and you put your hand down in the dirt, you’re going to (get) comfortable and be able to play."
