It was made official earlier this year with the news that Dallas Cowboys legend Demarcus Ware was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Ware set the all-time franchise record for sacks with the Cowboys with a total of 117 in nine seasons played. He would then take his talents to the Rocky Mountains, signing with the Denver Broncos with whom he would win Super Bowl 50. He was also named a Pro Bowler in 2014 and 2015. 

And Jones personally told Ware earlier today that he'll be on hand for the ceremony later this year to personally present Ware with the honor.

"I cannot tell you what an honor it is," Jones said. "It is because it is you. This means more to me than being in the Hall of Fame because I know what you are a part of, and that is how I got in the Hall of Fame."

"The football player you were for your teammates, this is what I thought it would be like in heaven if you got in the NFL," said Jones, who drafted Ware in 2005. "You are the picture of it."
