Trade them both (Rat and Austin) for whatever pick you can get, they are not worth keeping.
Good. Ratliff needs to go. They tried to rely on him too much and it did not end well. Maybe instead of continually pinning their hopes on him to regain his 2009 form, they will just give up and start looking for the next anchor.
its big cap hit. Will be interesting to see if Jerry bites the bullet in 2013 and does full rebuild.
they said specifically that Thoughts on austin around the organization isnt a pretty picture. And when they talk about Wrs with the coaches for instance with dez they always talk about his love for the game and nothing of the sort when topic goes to austin. Spounds like once he got the money he lost his desire
I expect Ratliff back personally. In today cap world you can't fix every problem in one offseason. Last year that clearly tried fixing the secondary. This year I expect the focus to come on the OLine.
where/what station can we hear this on?
Dallas cowboys website.
Dont want him dont need him
We're doomed as fans if the powers that be make decisions based upon whether the fans will put up with it. If rebuilding is the best for the long term success of the team, then thats what should be done regardless of any fan outrage. They were outraged when they fired Landry, all things change when you win and that's the name of the game. Its not like the fans have been happy for the last 17 years and they haven't gone anywhere so do whatever gives them the best chance to succeed long term
And lock Jerry out of the process
But if somehow we cut Ratliff, and most likely Spears is gone. So our DL is Hatcher, Lissemore, and Crawford. Exciting.
Probably won't get much for either of them. And if you trade them, you take the whole cap hit in one year. Can't spread it out over two like you can with June 1 cuts.
That was my own personal feeling on him to be honest.
And not to describe him as some bum for sure, but he doesn't seem to be one of those guys you really count on. More Alvin Harper than Michael Irvin. Seems all too happy now to run second banana to Dez Bryant as long as the money is coming in.
You're going to have to poney up the money for Bryant anyway, may as well take it from what Austin is making, unless the cap money doesn't add up.
Don't we still have another 10 million cap penalty from Mara getting his panties in a wad?
Hatcher is a FA and most likely gone as well
I don't get that from Austin. He didn't go all out and start buying things after he got paid.
he's just been injury prone, been that way since the beginning.
$5M in 2012 and $5M in 2013.
Jason Hatcher is under contract for 2013.
Kenyon Coleman is a free agent.
Hatcher will be 31 next year. If he is willing to resign for a hometown discount on a reasonable contract the Cowboys should sign him, but it shouldn't be more than 3 year deal with minimal guaranteed money.
Yea I thought I read Hatcher was a free agent as well? Is he no longer a free agent?
wow. thats not good.
Jason Hatcher signed a 3 year, $6M free agent contract prior to the 2011 season once the Lockout was over.
2013 is the final year of the deal.
