Former Dallas Cowboys’ pass rusher DeMarcus Ware would like to come back where it all began. Ware, who spent the first nine seasons of his career in Dallas, recently said that Cowboys have “every single thing that they need” to win Vince Lombardi trophy and that he wouldn’t mind helping them see that by serving as a pass-rush consultant.

“I always say I want to teach the championship mentality,” – said Ware on Sunday at a Cowboys alumni fundraising event. “If I could come here at least two or three days a week, teaching them Wednesdays and Thursdays, teach the pass rushers how to pass rush, stopping the run — but then I always help the offensive line, like (left tackle) Tyron Smith, with their technique (too).”

If Cowboys were to look someone who could pitch in with their pass rush knowledge, they could hardly do better than DeMarcus Ware. During his nine years in Dallas, Ware managed to set the franchise’s all-time sack record with 117 while also holding a record for forced fumbles with 32.

On the Cowboy’s side, it seems like the team wouldn’t be too opposed for Ware to pitch in with some tips.

“We love DeMarcus Ware,” – said Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. “He’s a special person. He was a special player for this organization for a number of years and everybody loves him. The coaches love him, his former teammates love him, obviously the Jones family loves him. We did talk about it (a consultant-type role) last year. It just has to work for both sides, what he’s looking for, what we’re looking for from a role like that. But suffice it to say he’s always welcome, and if we get to a point where it makes sense for both sides, we’ll definitely bring him back and get him involved. He’s a special guy.”
