    Just a formality - I expect an extension that makes him the highest paid G in the league in pre-season

    While I would really love for the Cowboys to sign Leary, I don't think having 4 large contracts (assuming Martin signed to a multi-year deal) just on the O-line is a good thing.

    It would be great if no CBA but reality is you don't need that much at one position

    The 5th year option is a much better deal for the team when the player was not a top 10 pick.

    In 2016, the 5th year option for OLinemen:
    Top 10 pick: 11.9M
    Pick between 11 and 32: 8.8M

    The 2016 Franchise Tag for OL was 13.71M.

    Like the Franchise Tag, the 5th year option is inflated for Guards/Centers because OT salaries are included in the calculation.

    Good call, I just hope we can lock him up for a long time, we are losing Leary. We need to make Zach a career Cowboy.

    I won't complain about keeping Zeke for 10m+ in 2020

    With this offensive line, QB and RB it would be a travesty not to win a SB.
