Only real difference is Dallas is overpaying guys on their roster instead of going out and signing Lavernius Coles and a bunch of other guys from other teams.
Well its not like theyre overpaying a ton of guys tho. Most of the big bucks are on guys like Romo, Carr, Ware, Witten. 52 mil of the cap is on these 4 players. Yes theres questionable contracts on players like Free and Ratliff. IMO Austin really isnt a big hit with his production.
But as people have said all teams have these questionable contracts. All teams deal with these problems.
Free, people were actually talking about it was a value type deal. Everybody liked it when it was signed. Now everybody hates it. He's just a guy that got moved around too much IMO. They shouldve just left him at RT. The mistake was moving him to LT where he got LT starter money.
Ratliff, well i hated this deal from the get go. He was still in a contract and got a new one. This is were jerry is too loyal to his players. He knew Ratliff was underpaid so he made it right. But wrong for the cap.
