    He counts $3 million dollars against the cap next year, is a rotation player at best and has degenerative knees.

    Based on the fact that Sean Lissemore,Ernie Sims, Alex Albright and Danny McCray shouldn't be the key core of the D

    I would, too... I usually assume that FAs will always stay where they are.

    Or, the team Lovie goes to might want him and he might want to follow his coach.

    But you never know what can happen with FA when a team gets a new coach... Like us with Spencer.

    Really, I think Ratliff would be a great 3-tech, but the team might think he's too beat up anymore. Who knows.

    Glen Dorsey DE from Kansas

    Played in 3-4 there but is better suited for 4-3

    I don't recall his knees being a problem or holding him out of games. I could be wrong, I just didn't pay attention if he missed time over his knees. But I am not sure 3 million is a lot of money for a solid rotational player who plays the run very well and could probably help keeping the LB'r clean.

    105.3 ESPN Dallas radio station was touting the pros and cons with Herman Edwards at 6am this morning. The pros are a faster team because they play smaller quicker players.

    The cons, when you have a middle linebacker evacuate the middle to change the defense to a cover three, which is what Edwards stated happens, that means your team is susceptible to being run on. The defensive tackles for Tampa Bay were the reason no one ran on them.

    Edwards went into detail stating the reason was Sapp was what he called a generational player. Meaning his type doesn't come along every now and then.

    I like Fisher a great deal. But this seems more about the radio show that preceded his than anything Fisher gleaned today from Valley Ranch.

    I have been going on and on about letting Spencer go, but guys I respect keep saying that is what is going to happen...

    That makes absolutely no sense...unless you ware wanting to spend the money you have spent on Spencer for someone else at a position of greater need. Getting a big-time 3 technique fits the bill.

    Yeah, that's the thing. There aren't many Warren Sapps.

    It's like saying you're looking for a Reggie White type.

    We were "financially strapped" last year and signed Carr to a big deal.

    We have a Warren Sapp type guy on the D already if he could stay healthy.

    Ratliiff is a lot like Sapp, but who knows if he comes back better or continues to degenerate.

    Is Darnell Dockett available? I think Dockett could be pretty disruptive.

    The cap can be manipulated in so many ways it is not even funny. Teams that want to spend money can find ways to sign just about anybody they want.

    Let the other thread says, Jerry is willing to push large cap hits off into the future in order to build a team and win right now. Call it mortgaging the future if you will, but Jerry is thinking once Romo retires the team will be crap anyways so what does it matter.

    I was impressed. He was quick off the snap and gets into guys pads and throws them. He plays low to the ground. A guy that can stand a olinemen up onto their tippy toes and toss them is a very powerful man.

    It's just a highlight but a good one.
