The Cowboys’ Pro Bowl linebacker on Wednesday took to Facebook to give fans a glimpse of his upgraded facemask, complete with eight horizontal bars. His last facemask contained just four bars.
“Getting my armor ready for the season….will be suited up for battle!” Ware wrote.
Similar to Giants defensive end Justin Tuck’s, Ware’s unique grill makes it harder for opposing linemen to grab onto, reducing the risk of neck injuries.
That’d be a good thing for the 30-year-old Ware, who’s reportedly dealt with nagging stingers since the 2009 season.
