It's a possibility that Ware is merely upgrading his digs, and if he does, the cost certainly won't make a huge dent in his pocketbook. The Dallas Cowboy signed a six-year $78 million contract extension in 2009, $40 million of which was guaranteed.

The grand master bathroom boasts a luxe vanity, spacious shower stall, a large soaking tub where Ware surely nursed his game-day bruises, and a must-have for any pro-athlete (or guy for that matter): a sweet flat screen television.

Not only is Ware an accomplished athlete, but he became the first member of his family to graduate from college when he earned his degree in business information systems from Troy.

Nobody will argue that football players love to eat and Ware's chef's kitchen sure has enough space and high-end appliances and luxuries to satisfy even the most ravenous of diets.

There are an astounding seven fireplaces scattered throughout the custom-made spread.

Where oh where is Ware moving? The five-time Pro Bowler has three-plus years remaining on his contract with the Cowboys, so we can't imagine he's going far.

There are six bedrooms in Ware's Colleyville suburban pad.

This kids bedroom is very appropriately covered in the Cowboys logo and color scheme. The next owner better be a Dallas Cowboys fan, or at the very least, have a great interior decorator to revamp the room.

The home sits on almost one acre of land and features tons of fun amenities including this mini putting green.

Green with envy yet? The entertainment outdoor space is epitomized in this covered patio area that features a vaulted ceiling, gorgeous custom brickwork, a built-in barbecue and kitchen space, a flat-screen television above the mantel, and a lavish stone fireplace.

Now this is what we call a man cave. Ware's escape-from-the-wife oasis features a pool table, wet bar, more flat screen TVs (you can never own enough, right?), as well as all of his sports memorabilia displayed for all to gawk at.
