  1. 2019 Free Agency - Potential Targets

    That’s as deep as we’ve seen at any position in years. I think Lando Collins gets tagged, though.
  2. 2019 Free Agency - Potential Targets

    Pretty much. We’ve really avoiding doling out the overpriced free agent contracts that have burned us in the past. And, quite frankly, that’s a good thing.
  3. Dak, the QB of the future or not.

    Brady took discounts on every contract. He never cashed in on the huge deal.
  4. Off to NY this morning for a few days. Looking forward to the great food.
  5. Gearing up for next season

    Todd Gurley’s deal may end up hurting the Rams.
  6. Dak, the QB of the future or not.

    To be fair, no player should ever take a pay cut. If the NFL was truly sincere about maintaining proper competitive balance rather than striving to make every team go 8-8 (Paul Tagliabue’s master plan), it would consider moving QB salaries into their own separate salary cap pool from the main one. This way, teams can retain their players more efficiently. @Matts4313 has a really good idea on this as well. I don’t want to butcher his idea, but the main concept is to allow teams to take a 10% discount against the cap for extending players they drafted. I think it’s a great alternative to mine.
  7. Dak, the QB of the future or not.

    I’m no fan of Quincy, but I’d take him every day of the week and twice on Sunday when compared to Tyrod Taylor. And.....I really don’t think Arizona would take that trade.
  8. Gearing up for next season

    I think they’ll rank them like this: 1. Quincy - while time is not critical, this extension is about messaging. If the executives believe he’s a franchise guy, then they need to extend him before his rookie contract expires because it’ll actually save them money long-term and it shows they’re committed to him as a franchise QB. The challenge will be finding the right balance financially. 1a. Demarcus Lawrence - time is critical on this one. He’s set to hit free agency, so my guess is he’ll be hit with the tag again while a long term deal is being worked out. Neither he nor the team want him under the franchise tag, so both sides are motivated to get the deal done. 2. Amari Cooper - even though he’s under contract through the 2019 season, his agent can (rightfully) claim that Quincy became a much better player because of Cooper, so Dallas can’t extend one without the other. 3. Byron Jones - thhis is a classic 50/50 ball. We picked up the fifth year option, so he’s under contract through 2019, but his salary commands could skyrocket if he has a season in 2019 like he did in 2018. It would be cheaper long-term to extend him now than risk paying an extra $3M+ per season if we wait. In all honesty, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Jones chooses to wait for that very reason. He can bet on himself and make more money, especially since Kris Richard is definitely returning next season. 4. Zeke - pay him sooner than later before he hits the RB wall. Statistically, he’s been the most productive RB two of the last three seasons, and it’s all three seasons when prorated against his absurd 2017 suspension. 5. Jaylon Smith - I think this is the contract he may want to wait on, but Dallas shouldn’t. Due to the more limited sample size from his injury, an extension now will favor Dallas. He absolutely deserves the extension, but waiting until after the 2019 season (or even during it) will land him a better contract when he gets extended. He’s another player who may choose to wait and bet on himself. 6. La’el Collins - sign him ASAP. He’s steadily improving, has been reliable, and shouldn’t be a bank breaker. Keeping him also keeps the o-line continuity, and that’s a precious commodity in the NFL.
  9. 2019 Free Agency - Potential Targets

    It’s not like there are any NFL teams in Austin, though. I would guess that they may want to live in Austin if/while ET plays in Dallas. I don’t think I’d do that, considering how great the schools are in McKinney, Prosper, and Frisco.
  10. 2019 NFL Draft Prospects

    I would guess a round or two.
  11. 2019 NFL Draft Prospects

    Just saw the workout photo of Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf. He is a very large man. Like David Boston large.
  12. Around the NFL - Playoffs Baby

    And it could happen, especially if Foles immediately signs the tag. Teams would be scared to trade for him because they’d be on the hook for that $25M if they can’t reach a long term deal in a few very short months. Right now, Foles has a TON of leverage.
  13. Probably sooner than we think. Once a few premier 5* kids make the jump and are successful, the flood gates will open unless the AAF and/or XFL block it.
  14. How are you posting here? From work, or your phone? If it’s your phone, you should be able to stream the game.
  15. The game will be broadcast on CBS, and I believe it will also be streaming on the internet.
