Madden '13 Ratings: DeMarcus Ware Is A 99

If you didn't already know what a special player Dallas Cowboys OLB DeMarcus Ware is, look no further than the latest ratings for Madden '13, where the Cowboys star is one of only two defensive players given the highest-possible 99 rating:

2. Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware: 99 overall
It's not just Ware's tremendous speed that makes him a "Madden" immortal. It's also his character's height. Not only will Ware get after the quarterback, but even if he doesn't get the sack, he'll swat the ball down if you time the jump right.

Ware, along with New York Jets CB Darrell Revis, is ahead of only three 98's (Patrick Willis, Jared Allen and Justin Smith) in the newest Madden.

At 6'4 260, he's the prototype 3'4 OLB, with the speed and power to dominate OT's in pass-blocking, the strength to hold his own as a run defender as well as the intelligence to move around the field and occasionally drop into coverage.

With the addition of Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne in the secondary, Ware could have the opportunity to pick up some coverage sacks next year, a pretty scary though considering he had 19.5 in 2011.

At the age of 30, he doesn't have too much more time at the peak of his game, so Cowboys fans should appreciate watching one of the greatest players to ever play the game while they can.
