Then hire him as assistant line coach.
He still hasn't had the surgery he needs, so don't even know if he's interested.
Does he even want to come back....took a lot to convince him last year.
I dont think they need him. They could spend the 3.5 mil it would take to bring him in on somebody else.
Absolutely not. Let him walk/retire. We don't need him and don't need him stopping progression of younger players at the guard position.
Costa's base for 2014 is the same as Waters got in 2013 (although I think Waters got bonuses for each game played). Clearly we are a better ol swapping one for the other.
BTW - anyone have details on Waters' contract?
Yeah, I'm sure he wants to work long hours for less than game check
No. It took Jerry meeting his price.
As a player? No. As a OL coach? Yes.
Yes!! Let the man finish the job he started. He instilled some much needed nasty to a young line. One more year under his wing and money well spent. Waters gets it. I'd still draft a OG, not only for depth but also to make Mack to back up G/C so that we can rid ourselves of Costa. I wouldn't expect 16 games from Waters, but his mentality is needed in that lockerroom in some capacity.
Of course having the surgery means just as much. The fact he had not had it tells me where his head is. Time to move on. Thanks for the journey.
It's not always all about money. You don't think he's made enough? He might just be looking to do something that he can contrubute and not spend all day on his couch and feel useful but not put that pounding on his body.
If it were about $, he wouldn't be playing for those relatively low money deals. He wants to play but also wants more time with his family
I agree and stated as much. It can't be a situation where Dallas is in limbo while he chooses what to do. If he is unwilling to sign before the draft then I think it would be a mistake to count on him.
so now you read minds?
BS. He has no reason to hurry; and he might not need surgery. Bet you didn't think about that.
No, I just go off his own words, where he has acknowledged he probably needs it but then says: "Whatever decision I make is going to be a long, drawn-out process, like it always is."
In other words, "call me later Jerry".
On top of that am I missing something? Why hasn't he had the surgery to repair the injury yet? I say pass.
When he played, he was the best offensive lineman on the team.
But can he stay healthy? Was the triceps injury a fluke? That's for the trainers to decide.
That was the first time the guy had ever been injured and missed games ever, I think. His lower body held up just fine, and that's where injuries usually occur.
He'd be a nice addition if healthy.
This is the obvious choice. If we could get this, then this is what, I think, all of us would vote in favor of. The problem is that 31 other teams are looking for the same thing and that's the problem. You usually can't find these guys cheap because the market drives the price and if you do, what are the chances that you beat the other 31 teams?
We may not be able to find this opportunity unfortunately.
Let's just see where we are at the end of VFA, and decide if we have the money left to spend on bringing him back again at the end of camp. If nothing else, he's a decent insurance policy (albeint an expensive one) if we want him.
