DeMarcus Ware retired this past offseason after giving a great deal of thought to returning for a 13th NFL season. Unlike many players who knew right away when it was time to hang it up, the former defensive end says he was extremely close to adding one more year to his career.

When discussing this weekend’s game between his two former teams, the Broncos and Cowboys, Ware revealed Wednesday that he was “one day away” from returning to Dallas for another season.

Ware, 35, retired as a Cowboy after spending three seasons in Denver and winning a Super Bowl there. He was still playing at a high level, but back issues became a problem. Even now, Ware said he still has a desire to strap on the pads.
