Thinking about Dallas having $31m available by not paying Dak does absolutely nothing for me anymore.
The personnel dept is and has been awful for a long time. Their idea of quality players this year has been Worley, Poe, Griffin, McCoy, Dalton, Clinton-Dix, Zuerlein, Canady, and Smith (thank God they hit on one). They’ve paid big for RB. Didn’t pay Hitchens $9m/yr to turn around and pay Jaylon and the always injured Lee $18m combined. Paid big for a run stopping DE. Paid an extra $2m for an average kicker to replace the guy who was perfect for them last year. Brought back a washed up and ancient TE to get in the way of Jarwin and Schultz. And in the process of all of this let their best CB walk, only to keep paying Tyrone Crawford.
Forgive me for no longer being excited about extra cap space.
