My question is this -- is Walden's production at $725,000/year worthwhile compared to Spencer's at $8,800,000 (likely ~$10,000,000/y if the resign him)?
It helps frame the conversation of deciding whether or not the Cowboys should break the bank on Spencer.
Sure. You're always trying to get value throughout the team. It's a tough balance. If Spencer walks, and they go cheap at SOLB, can they use that money to improve other areas, thus hopefully making the team better as a whole? That's what they have to decide.
