Coming off 2 injury shortened seasons and a down year in general last year, I wonder how much Brandon Scherff is going to cost?  Is this considered over kill on the OL?

12 could maybe get him for around 10

We don’t need to spend more resources on OL. After Dak and Amari are signed all the focus should be on improving the defense. Getting Quinn back would be my top priority. Byron doesn’t get enough turnovers to merit the contract he is going to demand.

What was "down" about his season?

Better way to put it down by his typical standards. He had an issue with penalties last year. 9 in 11 games. Maybe residual effects of the pec injury.

Can the compensation from a team trading for franchised player be negotiated,   or is it set in stone they trade (2) 1st's?

I would be for this. BUT I am pro signing all of our own guys. Amari, Byron, even Quinn. I want them all back. It won't be cheap but it's absolutely doable. Dak will get paid, either a tag or a long term deal. They probably want a long deal on Dak and make the first few years cheap hits. Then front load Amari, Byron, and hopefully Quinn.

 

IF we have money after that, I'm all for signing him if he truly comes at a discount. 

 

 

Also, I obviously don't believe in OL overkill.

The 2 first rounder is forcefully taking the player. If they negotiate, its just a trade. And yes, tagged players can be traded.

Thanks.   I'd be for tagging Byron with a non-exclusive franchise tag.

But they can also not agree to the trade. We wouldn't be able to tag and trade Dak for example to a team like Miami. He would just say no like Clowney did.

I don't get the point of that.  He sits out.  We pay him anyways, and he's behind.    What are we waiting for?   Dak to blow his knee out.   We're gonna have to  pay him and it gets more expensive the longer we wait.    I don't think he's a top 5 qb,  but the fact is if you are top 15 and it's your time,  you usually set the market.  What realistic options do we have besides Dak?

Realistically? Sucking for a year and hoping for a high enough pick to take a shot at a qb, wasting a season of most of these players primes while starting a journeyman, a way over the hill vet, or our boy Cooper. #Rushtothepodium

 

Honestly, as much as I wanted these negotiations to end with dak taking a deal closer to 30 than 40, being a suck *** team again is not something I'm really into. At this point you're locked into paying Dak. Top 15 qbs dont just walk thru the door. And if he hit the open market some team will give him wayyyyy too much. So just get him signed so the front office can adjust to cap life with a highly paid qb and the team can get moving on other offseason needs.

Assuming we re-sign Dak, what option would you rather have:

Re-sign Coop and continue pairing hin with Gallup but Cobb and Byron walk.

Or

Re-sign Cobb, Byron and sign Dez but let Coop walk.
