    That would be the obvious conclusion! LOL!

    But it won't work out that way.

    Will Dallas draft a DL early? Yeah probably first or second rounds.

    But I wouldn't expect 2 out of the first 3 picks to be DL.

    They're still going to need another guard.

    And Romo's eventual replacement is going to have to be found.

    My hope is out of this collage of no-name defensive lineman that a couple will prove to be adequate. Throw Ware in the mix and a resigned Hatcher.. Oh and the kid that blew out his Achilles.

    That's five guys. Draft a couple more. Bring in a non-drafted rookie and one cheap free agent.

    I also wouldn't be shocked to see Spencer resigned to a low-cost incentive laden contract.

    he'll be finishing a 3 year 6 mill deal. He might want a larger raise than that, but really, what we are looking at is a guy who finally started to play well at 30, so he's not really in a spot to get a huge deal.

    30+ year old DTs just don't get big deals.

    I agree. It make the most sense for both sides. Spencer knows the scheme and could rebuild his value in an environment he is comfortable with and the Cowboys will get a player with upside on an incentive based deal. The wildcard is Spencer's health obviously, but coming back on that kind of contract works for everyone involved.

    Hatcher will probably get 10+ sacks this year. For a DT, that is a lot of sacks. He is earning a raise. His age is a factor, but he was used sparingly in his early years and his body hasn't taken a beating. He might persuade Jerry to give him a big two year contract, or he might be franchised, which would result in a raise as well.

    Also agreed.

    Spencer's knee will be questioned on any expensive negotiation, and it may work out that his best option is in Big D.

    Depends. We know Crawford and Bass will return and Hatcher also. Rat and Spencer - who knows, likely gone. Then all the FA's we signed this year will get another look. Bottom line - I'd still go DL early (we need to get young talent IMO) but there should be more bodies than roter spots already.

    If we are unwilling to learn from even our own previous mistakes then we deserve what we get

    Injuries and slow healing with aging are more than just wear and tear

    No way should we sign hatcher for more than 2 years OR a 'big' deal
    Sign him to a first rd tender for 1 year and via draft and FA get 2 DL starting caliber players

    In the next couple of years we will need to replace ware, spencer and hatcher

    Better start planning for it now

    It should have been emphasis of this past draft that some of us were clamouring for.

    How much did Cullen Jenkins make when Eags signed him from Pack. Similar age, production and position.

    Cullen Jenkins was starting his first season with the Eagles at 30, not at 32. There is a huge difference there

    Spencer isn't on the books next year, and he never was. No cash is freed up.

    They will gain 10.6M relative to the 2013 cap. One method to project the cap is to compare the increases and decreases relative to the current year.
