  1. It's unfortunate that La'el has an even more ominous health situation than Tyron, because if the former had played at a high level this year I think it would be worth discussing him and Martin at OT, with Williams-Biasdaz-McGovern inside. That's a so-so unit at best, but that's all we had in 2020. We could be staring at the same multiyear rebuild on the OL we faced with Garrett a decade ago.
  2. Yeah Cooper's deal is structured in a way where they can bail from it for only $6M dead cap in '22 since his base becomes guaranteed the fifth day of the league year. Technically you could restructure him this year and still post-June 1 cut him next year but that is unlikely. You actually save a hair more by adding the void year to do the full five-year restructure than what Bobby has listed ($15.2M). That's definitely in play, wish I'd thought of that before I went off about how he's dead on about Tyron, lol. Still think there might be something to that. Jaylon and Chris Jones have to go
  3. I guess a Cooper restructure could make sense, they'd probably add a void year in '25. The rest of these I would hope to avoid. D-Law already has cap figures pushing $30M in '22 and '23 with significant dead money
  4. Right, I’m assuming that happens, and suggesting that it’s not enough if you want 2-3 free agent defensive starters. According to OTC we have $23M in cap room next year, so if you assume a LTD for Dak drops his # to 20M, give or take, that’s almost no room left. 5M sounds like very little but the difference between, say, 3 and 8 or 4 and 9 for Dallas’ purposes is actually quite significant (find a few guys who can plug holes for a year, supplemented by the draft class, which is only affordable through the Jaylon cut). We could just restructure a bunch of guys but that would be a sign that
  5. Definitely, it would put OT squarely in play for us in the first. It’ll also be hard to improve the defense with what Dak will cost- these moves don’t even free up enough $ to tag him again and are reliant on an extension that lowers his cap figure. Then you would at least have some space with the Jaylon money kicking in over the summer. Generally, it’s gonna be hard for this team to turn things around and move in a different direction without significant turnover and some tough decisions. If the team is in any way concerned that Tyron may play closer to 2 games a year than 13 going forwa
  6. Obviously Tyron is the "bombshell" here and would be mostly cap related (saves $5M this year and ~$30M over 2022-23). Since Jaylon would have to be post-June 1, there's almost nothing else we can do that frees up cap room outside of restructures. Kinda wonder if there's something going on there with him only playing 2 games this year. Did he delay surgery? Some sort of friction with the coaching or medical staff? I'm recklessly speculating, but these kinds of things happen- certainly Bobby knows more than us.
  7. Our Twitter brethren are having a field day over this one. Lots of love being poured out for this list of losers who just went 6-10 against a pretty easy schedule
  8. Pederson is either trying to get fired or got a tanking directive from Roseman/Luhrie. No other explanations. Frankly, it’s tremendous content
  9. It really is. They’re the only team in the league without such a win. I don’t think it’s entirely about the defense, either. I mean, it mostly is, like 90+%, but they didn’t need that many points in all their games in ‘19. Think this team just excels at playing from ahead and tends to fold in the face of adversity. They’re front runners. Need to clean that up because only being able to win games in shootouts and blowouts is unacceptable
  10. The Cowboys are 0-16 when scoring less than 30 points since 2019
  11. People aren’t realistic with him and Awuzie. A decent NFL starter in the mid-late second round is a normal return on investment. They play positions where their best reps go unnoticed, and the other guys get paid too
  12. Jaylon should be a post-June 1 cut for the draft class + in-season flexibility. Only pride from the FO would allow him to stay
  13. I think we pick ~13 if we win tomorrow but miss the playoffs. 19 if we get in and lose in the first round. Could be worse
  14. The amount of money Stephen and Jerry are haggling Dak over on a per year basis is roughly what Daryl Worley and Cameron Erving cost against the cap this year. Makes total sense, where would we be without those two vital contributors? I think you can poke holes in Dak's game and make the case that it just makes more sense for this team to undergo a complete overhaul over the next couple of offseasons. I don't think you can make the case that our front office/ownership is capable of building a contender with or without a QB on a big contract.
