DeMarcus Ware Named To 2011 AP All-Pro Team

DeMarcus Ware was named to the AP All-Pro Team in 2011 for the sixth time in his career after recording 19.5 sacks this season.

Dallas Cowboys outside linebackers missed out on becoming the first player in NFL history to have two seasons with 20 or more sacks by half a sack in 2011. He finished second in the NFL, behind Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen, with 19.5 sacks in 2011, which earned him a spot in the Pro Bowl for the sixth time in his career.

He was also named to the 2011 Associated Press All-Pro Team as a first-team outside linebacker along with Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs. The AP All-Pro Team is selected by a panel of football writers in the Associated Press and does not include a fan, player or coach vote. This is the sixth time that Ware has been named to the AP All-Pro Team, which puts him in the elite company of Randy White, Bob Lilly and Larry Allen as the only Cowboys players with six All-Pro seasons.

Ware has finished with double digit sacks every season except for his rookie year (2005) and he is, without a doubt, building a Hall of Fame resume in Dallas.
