Ware could end up being the greatest Cowboys linebacker.

The Dallas Cowboys are one of the most storied franchises in all of sports. America’s Team has been around since 1960 and has been home to some of the greatest players in the NFL.

The old saying is that defense wins championships. The Cowboys have five Super Bowl titles due in large part to some dominating defensive players.

It can be argued that the linebacker position is the most important on any defense. They are always right in the middle of the action and play a key role in stopping both the run and pass.

The 2013 Dallas roster has its share of young and exciting linebackers who should produce for many years to come. Perhaps guys like Sean Lee and Bruce Carter will become some of the team’s best.

Until then, let’s take a look at the top five linebackers in the Cowboys’ history.

Honorable mentions: Thomas “Hollywood” Henderson, Bob Breunig, D.D. Lewis, Dat Nguyen
