Just some thoughts w/o doing a bunch of research. Greg Ellis - No matter what you think about Ellis and his public demand for cash, it's interesting that this is first real contract dispute the Cowboys have had to engage in since maybe Troy's last deal. He's a good player. He's got a decent contract that the Cowboys aren't under any obligation to pay or re-do. But the salary doesn't quite match the current role. He wants a re-do with a little more guaranteed. Will the Cowboys address it? That's the question. For the first time in a long time, the Cowboys have homegrown players that they actually want to keep. Bradie James - Player on the cusp or one-year wonder? That's what the Cowboys have to decide. What kinda contract can he possibly command on the open market? What contract is he really worth? Jason Witten - Pro Bowl tight end. What more can be said. However, there's alot to be said. He's a young guy, achieved some success, all under his rookie contract. It's time for him to get extended. Everyone says git r done. Witten says it needs to be done before the season. Can the Cowboys do it? And what kinda numbers is he talking? Roy Williams - Pro Bowl safety. New face of the Cowboys. Some say great player. Some say overrated who needs a free safety to be effective. What kinda money does a "supposed" one-dimensional safety warrant? As for who gets extended: I wanna believe that Jerry will tweak his contract. But in this new era of fiscal responsibility, I think Ellis will have to suck it up and play it out. I think Bradie gets a solid contract. Decent contract, but not too outrageous. I think Witten becomes highest paid TE, but the question is when does it happen. Safety's cap numbers aren't usually that high. So, if all else fails, Roy gets franchised. I think Roy gets a contract somewhere between Archuleta's and Donovan Darius' contract. Archuleta's contract just seems like pure monopoly money, while Darius' seems to be pretty fair. But w/a higher cap, he just may blow Archuleta's contract out the water.
