Not a ranking just names that popped when looking at the full list. 

Should be some veteran QB options, thin WR market will lead to someone like Robby Anderson overpaid. Same thing at OL, expect Scherff and Thuney to get huge deals. LB is thin with Van Noy or Littleton the best option?

 

DL/EDGE and DB has a lot of depth and talent. I expect a few to receive franchise tag.

New HC will want his own QB. Tag Cooper, re-sign Byron, get a 2021 3rd round comp for Dak. Cowboys roll with Mariota on a 1 year prove it deal, but secretly know he's even worse than Dak and are just using him to get to Justin Fields.

If history has taught us anything, it's that if Jerruh wants Dak then the new HC will be selected based upon his willingness to sign off on Dak being his ride or die.

All things considered, Yannick is more of a 4-3 guy, right? He wouldn't translate well as a 34 OLB or a 5 Tech, right?

I'll admit, I box score scout him at most.

5-Tech, no.  But he's played more LEO and OLB for the Jags than 4T or either of the DT positions, to my knowledge.  Assuming you guys stick with the 3-4 if/once RAC gets put on the curb where he belongs (would be hilarious if the Browns hired McDaniels and he turned around and brought Romeo back to Cleveland for a 3rd tour), he'd likely slot in on the EDGE for you guys.

With Dak coming crashing back to earth do they use the tag on him and let Cooper walk?

"Crashing back to earth"? His 4th qrt of the season was a 99.2 QB rating. If you just take the December and spread it for the entire year:

360/596 60.4 4456 yards 28 TDs 0 INTs 99.2

And remember, the first game of December he broke a finger in each hand and the second game of December he sprained his AC joint and couldnt practice/throw for a week.

This.  What we might see is a last-minute caving on (over)paying Cooper because doing so would still be less expensive (and probably less impactful long-term if things turn south) than overpaying Dak on a long-term deal.

I mean, they may not have a choice if they can't get something done with one of them. I agree with LBC though....if it gets to the end of the line, I wouldn't at all be shocked if they ended up caving and giving Cooper a massive almost Michael Thomas level deal. 

 

To the above two: We have $86m in cap space and 1 almost virtual lock to be cut (Crawford) adds $8m more. So assuming everyone goes at market rakes, we should be fine.

That is a ridiculous thing to say. 

In fact, the rest of the post is completely ridiculous also. I guarantee you got EVERY SINGLE THING WRONG. Except maybe tag cooper.

I won't disbelieve it.  But Cody Wasserman - the head the agency that Cooper's agent moved to in November - boasts 5 of the last year's most powerful sports agents in the business - including the guys who got Giancarlo Stanton, Russell Westbrook, and Andrew Luck paid like kings.  There's a standard expected at that agency, which is market-setting rates as well as not dismissing leverage when you have it.  Armstead is also Cooper's agent's clients, so he doesn't want to be setting the precedent that his clients are willing to accept less-than-market deals.  Yes, you guys should be fine and able to cover.  But, like I said, I wouldn't be surprised if you ended up having to pay a little extra to get Cooper over the finish line before free agency officially kicks off, because his agent knows that's he's got leverage.  Dak's agent is Todd France, the same guy who handles Aaron Donald, and he's not budging from seeking a market-setting deal.

Also the same Agent that just got Carson Wentz his Mega deal. It's going to be hilarious to watch Jerry and Stephen try justifying the Franchise Tag, Not Long term contract Dak is about to get. It's Coming!!!

Lets see if the Highest Paid Trio in the NFL next year, actually make the Playoffs??

I imagine that's what happens at this point unfortunately.

will the tag be removed on the next CBA as a result of this?

In the NFL you have to be willing to let players go, especially on defense. Belichick has mastered this.

I wonder what his price would look like - Anderson would be able to take on that Will Fuller "deep speed" role, and he'd actually stay somewhat healthy.

While Fuller is probably going to be dirt cheap in terms of re-signing him, he's basically locked into missing 4-8 games a season. After a while, it's pointless to give him any money...

Robby misses games too where he’s just nonexistent.

Minnesota will almost certainly give Anthony Harris a new deal. He's 28-29 I think but still very good. Mack Alexander is a great NCB but kind of limited.

Jayron Kearse and Xavier Rhodes will likely be gone. We might let Everson Griffen go as well.
