Hard to feel bad for someone that turned down 100 million guaranteed over 5 years 

really doesn’t sound different , does it?

You sure it was $100m? 

Do you know how the GTD money was structured?

 

No. None of us do. Not all GTD money is structured the same.

No, I am trying to make a point and you are boiling it down to semantics. 

GTD Money has structure. And not all of it is fully GTD. Not all of it is fully GTD against injury. A lot of it is the signing bonus, but rosters/work outs/status bonus all count as "GTD". There could have been only $15m GTD against injury. Thats the point. We dont know.

This. Pretty sure the APY was below market value as well, if I'm not mistaken.

Dak was offered a BOAT load of money and turned it down, period

nfl networks estimates 100 mill

NFL Network reported that Prescott turned down a deal worth at least $33 million per season, with $100 million guaranteed over five years. He wanted a four-year deal.

 

maybe it was 80 million

point still stands, hard to feel bad when that was offered

Did you just skip every word I said? Did I not explain it clearly? 

$100m GTD =/= $100m *FULLY* GTD

Meh, my point stands

dak bet on himself when offered tens of millions 

bet didn’t turn out

injury was unfortunate, but I don’t feel bad for him in regards to his contract situation and I don’t blame the owners

DMN - paywall

Dak will be out of the hospital today. Expected 4-6 months of rehab.

Which would be great. I hope he's still wearing a star on his helmet.

Jerry is going to resign Dak to a huge contract. I have zero doubt in my mind.

Especially since Dallas is out of the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes.

Dalton is good enough to win at least ~4-6 more games with how terrible our division is. We were never in the T-Law sweepstakes. All the teams we play suck to bad for us to be in it.

This is absolutely nuts. If ANY of you, me included, was offered a job of 3 million a year over the next 3 years, we would JUMP at the chance!

Just because professional sports, and I use that term laughingly, has turned into a cash grab with no end to how much the amounts would escalate on a yearly basis, does not mean I should have sympathy for a player that turned down a very lucrative offer.

Greed outweighed common sense here.

Now, I hope and pray for a speedy recovery for Prescott, but this was a foolish and possibly vain decision.

The video of Dak on the cart being wheeled away was just heartbreaking. From the Dawg Pound to the Star - our condolences on the injury.

But with what Dak has already overcome in his life, I think he will rehab properly and be back leading the Cowboys once again. He is a good overall dude, the kind that is needed in today's NFL.

Hoping and praying for a speedy and successful recovery.

This is my least favorite argument in all of life. 

If you could run Amazon, would you take $20b a year or $3m?

If you could Rap like Eminem, would you take $5m a year or $1m?

If you could teach at Harvard, would you take the $1m a year or the $60k of a normie?

 

Some people have more talent than the rest of us. 

 

(numbers all made up to prove a point)

Are there any veteran tackles out there we can trade for? I think tackle is the more pressing issue. Who is a "retired" FA we can sign? What about trading with a team that's out of it?

I can't think of anyone. There is no way McGovern could be any worse of a player than Steele, so I'd start him at G and slide Martin out to RT. 

A line of:

Knight - Williams - Biadasz - McGovern - Martin

looks a hell of a lot better than anything involving Steele starting.
