    I believe we do, but it depends on how much of Melton's money is scheduled against this year's cap and if Dallas is willing to sign him to a contract with a dead-money hit in a couple of years. The Cowboys could give him $7 million or $8 million up front in bonus for a four-year deal, then give him a low base salary the first year and a slightly higher one next year before the base exceeds the remainder of the bonus ($4 million or so) the third year.

    His first-year cap hit would end up about $3 million or so. If Melton's $5 million is all guaranteed against the cap, then their total would end up close to what we've got.

    Allen's total compensation could look big at four years, $30-plus million, but would be palatable for two years. If he's wanting a bigger bonus, then Dallas is probably better off letting him walk.

    I find it weird that he went back to Seattle and didn't sign a deal. Maybe received another call while he was there that swayed his mind ?

    In 2014 the media will be doing lots of talking about the Cowboys front four. I am sure we will see two early round additions rounds 1-4 and if Jared wants to come home I think it is the perfect time. If the entire defense can do an about face the fun in Dallas will be back. I can see the media giving #69, well...., some serious credit. And I think leaders know when to take advantage of a chance to lead. The Cowboys have a very explosive offense that may be ready to have a year to remember. Both sides of the ball could be quite stellar.

    Isn't the old joke that people in Seattle don't tan, they rust?

    Seattle is a great city though, I lived outside of there for a while and their fish market is stellar. It has such a great vibe to the city BUT it doesn't seem like the kind of place fit for a Cowboy. Just saying.

    I wonder what the detail is that is making Allen hesitate?

    I agree for the most part but I would take Jared Allen's "stale" legs over any DE on this roster. A rotation is great but not when you're sitting a hall of fame player for stiffs.

    I would guess he isn't getting the money per year that he wants.

    Or that his wife insisted on.

    We'll have something from the 1st or 2nd round very soon for WDE to rotate with a contract hungry Selvie.

    Marinelli and Jerry need to both reach out to him separately before the weekend - make him feel wanted and give him the big money upfront as close to 10M as possible, be competitive at least. Giving up without a last minute pitch is lousy salesmanship. Guy wants to come home, give him a reason, any reason to make that choice.

    I don't understand this line of thinking. That's 10 million better invested elsewhere. We cut Ware for a reason. Let's not ruin our good work and change in philosophy. We are starting to look like the Moneyball Oakland As for once, instead of a team that pays aging players bloated contracts that eat at us for years with no returns.

    Could the Raiders turn it around next season? They certainly will win the bidding war. If Allen sees a potential contender, he may opt to go to Oakland. Maybe they are putting some pieces together. No QB though - yet.

    I wouldn't listen to anything Clarence Hill is saying. He and Calvin Watkins were making fun about Jerry couldn't sign a Hometown kid in Melton. Then the next thing you know Melton signs and now all of a sudden sources say the Cowboys are out of the mix on Allen.

    We don't even know if Allen would consider less money to play in Dallas because there is no state tax. We'll see.
