Yes, and after Denver signed Ware, he is no longer DeMarcus Ware, he is Smiley Ware.
You're conflating two separate but related things. 'Moneyball' and sabremetrics aren't the same thing. Beane and Oakland use sabremetrics as part of their moneyball operations, which are a function of their small market status. Moneyball, in short, is using sabremetrics to identify undervalued skills and players whom possess those skills, and then acquiring them at relatively low costs.
Beane's and Oakland's limited success is a function of their required low payroll. Jerry's not doing that, can't do it by league rules, and nobody is suggesting he should.
Patrick Chung is available. He has experience and still is young. Came into the NFL in the 2nd round at New England. Was 16 when he was at Oregon.
