    We still have him next year for 3m on a 2nd round tender as a RFA

    No need to rush these types

    I'll admit I was a bit disappointed. I expected to see a 2 or 3 year deal. I'd hate to lose the guy if he has a really good year. I would have made it a couple years with incentives.....

    Just never saw enough to warrant the money we threw at him.

    Are the Cowboys only limited to signing him for this amount?

    Irving’s exclusive rights tender will end up being a one-year contract worth $615,000 for the 2017 season.

    Affordable, which is good. No reason to commit a large contract when he's an ERFA. His big extension will come if he performs - likely midseason.

    Good signing for "The Condor". I've nicknamed him that because of his huge wingspan. A pet cat of mine.

    They may have, but why would he agree to it? The reality is if he can show consistency this year, he has a chance at a huge contract next year

    At least take the risk of seeing if he would agree to a reasonable, multi-year deal as opposed to auditioning him for another team and letting him get some massive contract with another club if he performs better than expectations. Sometimes you have to take risks on a guy. In regards to Crawford syndrome, we'd potentially be worse off if he performed great this year, and then we gave him a fat cat contract for 5 years and then he started slacking off as opposed to shooting for a 2 to 4 year contract right now that is more reasonably priced but we're giving to him as a sort of investment of faith that he will perform, which will end up being a bargain if he does.

    Nice to see this. It's good to see he'll be back this year. Nevertheless, if he's destined to make the big bucks, he'll be obliged to show improved consistency in the weeks and months to come.

    Irving has been one of our most exceptional youngsters to offer tangible hope for our d-line's future development. Here's hoping his upside materializes in a big way during this season and beyond.

    He might very well see some competition from a young rookie d-lineman or two this preseason. Hopefully, that might serve to produce some beneficial challenges for our young, aspiring "rushmen" in training camp.

    Yep. I believe they can't even sign the player long term until after the 3rd season. Which was the deal with La'el Collins.

    They may have offered a longer deal
    But it takes two to tango and if I'm the player I want to get to free agency

    We also beat the rest of the league to the punch by snatching up Damontre Moore.

    We are killing it!
