Ware had previously held a tie for the spot with both Jared Allen and Julius Peppers.

Allen retired this offseason as a Minnesota Viking, where he played most of his career, after losing in the Super Bowl to the Broncos as a member of the Carolina Panthers.

Peppers still plays as a linebacker for the Green Bay Packers. They play Allen’s former team, the Minnesota Vikings, in Sunday night’s game.

Bruce Smith holds the record for most sacks in NFL history with 200.
