One of the biggest NFL stories Tuesday was the Cowboys' release of DeMarcus Ware. One of the best Cowboys ever, their all-time sack leader and a sure-fire Hall of Famer, Ware is obviously at a crossroads in his fantastic career. At this stage of his career, Ware isn't the explosive player he once was and he played through a lot of injuries last season, so he is a tough player to evaluate based off his 2013 tape. However, it's clear that he is on the decline. He has had offseason surgery in each of the past two years and had just six sacks in 2013.

However, even though it may not be in an every-down role, I have no doubt that Ware can still help a contender. He is still best as a 3-4 outside linebacker, but also has proved that he can play with his hand on the ground on every down as a 4-3 defensive end.

Which teams might be interested? Here are four clubs that would be good fits for Ware.
