Now that the Cowboys have cut defensive end DeMarcus Ware, he’ll have plenty of options.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Ware intends to be very selective about his next destination, but also to move quickly. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that six playoff teams already have called.

Ware spent the first eight years of his career in a 3-4 defense, playing outside linebacker. Last year, he moved to defensive end in a 4-3.

The 31-year-old pass rusher was due to earn $12.75 million in 2014. He’ll have to decide whether he wants to max out his earnings, or whether he hopes to position himself for the possibility of getting to the playoffs and maybe winning a game or two — something that hasn’t happened much during his time in Texas.
