Cowboys DeMarcus Ware Moving From Linebacker To Defensive End
With the Dallas Cowboys switching to a 4-3 defensive alignment, DeMarcus Ware is moving from linebacker to defensive end.
Ware has been one of the NFL’s most dominant pass rushers, however, new Cowboys defensive line coach Rod Marinelli believes the switch will help Ware, not hurt him, DeMarcus Ware has been to seven Pro Bowls.
“I think it will aid him a little bit, because your takeoff is better,” said Marinelli, via the Dallas Morning News. “Your keys are a little more consistent with what you are doing. That’s my opinion.
“I see him, I mean he’s an elite rusher right now. I just think the more opportunity he has, doing the same things every day, every week, the repetition, which allows you to become even faster. The sky is the limit for him I believe.”
Ware was plagued by injuries last season, but still had 11 1/2 sacks. He has 99 1/2 sacks over the past seven seasons, and the more time Ware spends in the opponent’s backfield, the better for the Cowboys.

I doubt he leaves, and I think he'll be tagged if not extended. I also believe he will have to play under the OLB tag if tagged. I believe it goes by the position you played the prior season
