The Last Dollar Is the Most Important in DeMarcus Ware's New Deal

Blogging The Boys brings us a grab bag of DeMarcus Ware goodness in the wake of his big, fat contract. (I'd mock his affinity for that Black Eyed Peas song "I Got A Feeling," but I've seen what he does to quarterbacks.) ↵

↵Anyway, no story from the signing was better than the one of the 78,000,001st dollar bill in the deal: ↵

↵
↵⇥JERRY'S DOLLAR: The Cowboys owner approached Ware on Monday after the new contract extension was finalized. It's a six-year, $78 million deal that guarantees him at least $40 million, running through the 2015 season, and making him the highest-paid Cowboy ever. ↵⇥

↵⇥"He gave me this,'' Ware told me as he pulled from his pocket a crinkled $1 bill. "Read it.'' ↵⇥

↵
↵

↵ ↵

↵
↵⇥ On the dollar, Jones had written: ↵⇥

↵⇥"THIS IS MY LAST OFFER. YOUR [sic] GREAT. JERRY JONES'' ↵⇥

↵
↵

↵Spelling error aside, is this not exactly how you'd expect a Jerry Jones negotiation to go? Also: Is it entirely out of the question that a man who built a stadium like the new one for the Cowboys is routinely using money as scrap paper? ↵
