Unfortunately there will probably be no saving from a long term deal. What if we are paying him $40m aav? How much lower than 28 can you get his first year hit? Probably can't even get it down to 28. Russ Wilson's first year hit was $31m. 

Im hearing that the hold up is years on the contract. I wonder if we offered 40 million overs 6 years with 140 guaranteed would he take it. This would allow some backload of the contract. 

Per Year

25 

30

40

40

50( Potential out)

55

Anymore I find it hard to get too worried about the cap. It’s been proven it can be manipulated. And, if the rumors of a cap explosion are true, Dallas shouldn’t have too many issues making it work.

I just want them to stop dicking around and get over the hump. If pushing some money into the future helps now, I’m all in for it.

I also feel that ultimately it would not have been a bad idea to offer 4 years like Dak wanted at say 36.  To me that’s a win win if he continues to shine then it’s a no brained to keep him at the 42 for three more years and if he drops then the Length is short enough for us to deal with it

Sounds like contract talks are back on. Contract length is still the issue. Dallas apparently was hoping for 7 yrs, now backed it off to 5.

If you click on that twitter thread, they break down a dozen or so plays.
