Nine years ago, the Dallas Cowboys selected pass-rushing outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware eleventh overall in the 2005 NFL draft. Ware would go on to play nine seasons in Dallas, breaking the Cowboys' all-time sack record with 117 sacks, earning seven Pro Bowl selections along the way.
Throughout his career, Ware has worn No. 94. Currently, that number is worn by Denver Broncos defensive tackle Terrance "Pot Roast" Knighton. Fortunately for Ware, Knighton is willing to give it up—for a price.

Ware can afford it after signing a three-year, $30 million deal with the Broncos on Wednesday morning.
