The Dallas Cowboys had another disappointing season after losing at home to the San Francisco 49ers in the wild card round of the playoffs. The entire organization promised to do better for the 2022 season, but the team didn’t have a cap spot to fit a superstar into their roster.
Former Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware tried to recruit two-time Super Bowl champion Von Miller to Dallas, but that’s exactly what his dream remained as the team couldn’t pay Miller.
The Cowboys weren’t financially stable to afford Von Miller
DeMarcus Ware knew the Cowboys desperately needed another pass rusher to add to their existing roster and recommended his former Denver Broncos teammate Von Miller. The Bills saw a great opening, however, and quickly rushed in to add another champion to their already ironclad team. In March, Miller signed Buffalo to a six-year, $120 million deal with $51.4 million in guarantees. That was far too much for the Cowboys, who suffered from cap issues earlier in the offseason.
“It was business because I remember when Von called me he was like, ‘Hey, is Dallas interested? I’m a free agent,'” Ware said as he recalled the conversation. “And I said, ‘What?! You’re a free agent, what do you mean you’re a free agent? I thought you had another year?’ He said, ‘No, I’m done [with the Rams], Brothers.’ He said call Jerry [Jones] and they and see what they want to do.’ I said are you trying to get them to empty the bank account? what are you trying to do?”
Ware dreamed of a three-man monster pass rusher team featuring DeMarcus Lawrence, Micah Parsons and Von Miller that would be a nightmare for any QB in the league. “If they got Von here it would have been a guy who can play on the left and right because [Lawrence]he plays left flank most of the time, but then you got Micah. Ware said. “Micah is really good on the right side. So now you would have had this three-headed monster. Think about it: Von Miller. Micah Parsons and DeMarcus Lawrence. I don’t know who’s coming. We still need that. We still need that right defender or full-back who can play a bit inside. Something can fall. This eternal athlete of the sack.”
The Cowboys re-signed defensive end Dorance Armstrong, signed Dante Fowler to free agency and drafted Sam Williams in the second round of the 2022 draft. These will be the players, along with Lawrence and Parsons, to send shivers down the QB’s spine. While Ware sought to bolster the Cowboys’ defenses, the organization did the best it could afford. Still, the sight of Lawrence, Parsons and Miller rushing in from all sides to sack the QB would have been amazing. Well, that was possible, so let’s see how the Cowboys fare in the 2022 season.
