    Tell you what: I'd be SHOCKED, as in: Tony Romo got cut today shocked, if any team in the NFL throws even half the contract that Canty got at Spears. As a matter of fact, Canty did a diservice to Spears being such a bust in his first year for the G-men.

    Spears needs to thread very carefuly here now. Would he be happy for an extra 1 million somewhere else ( and I'd be surprised if it's that much ) or give the Cowboys a home discount and stay where you're happy ? The Cowboys are not going to bendover backwards to keep him, probably offer him something in the 2 mills per year range, maybe a little more, with a respectable guaranteed sum, and he should just on it faster than a horny rabbit on a cage full of females. If he fools around too much, he might end up playing for the minimum somewhere else.

    Cowboys need to be very careful here too. Igor set the market for the D-linemen in Dallas, and the first priority is to make sure Ratt's next contract is the one doing that, not Spears'.

    Spears is under club control in an uncapped year. If somebody wants to give draft picks for him, I'll take it.

    I'm right behind you in that line.

    Hos, maybe you can answer a question I posed in another thread about Iupati. I've read on here where Kosier helps Gurode w/ line calls and we're still missing blocking assignments. If Kosier does help him, my concern with replacing Kosier is the effect it will have on Gurode re line calls.

    If we drafted a Guard, wouldn't we a. also need to draft a starting-quality Center and relegate both Kosier and Gurode to backup duty or b. focus on only drafting the Center and let Gurode move over to Guard?

    Getting an upgrade at Guard would be great but if the Center isn't making the right calls, the whole line is weakened, right?

    Edit: I should have added that it's possible Iupati could help with the calls, but I don't see the same level of help, given that he'd be a rookie. I'm not saying we should pass on Iupati, but at least short-term, filling the OG need magnifies an issue with the OC.

    Your assumption is that Iupati couldn't also help make the line calls and that it's ok to pass on the highest rated player at a position of need because of perceived deficiencies with a player already on your roster.

    He started playing football at 14 and had trouble w/ english for years. Obviously a hard worker but might be years from that.

    How about Gurode stops being a dummy?

    Your assumption is that A) OG is a position of need and that B) We won't resign Kosier or C) His replacement isn't already on the roster.

    I guess he's moving up already. I've see him sloted in the 5th-6th round in many online mocks. Oh well..the cream rises as they say.

    Hos, I'm with you. After having seen Odrick play for PSU this year, and watching the SB practice, I like the idea of this kid wearing the star. I like Spears and Olshansky, but ever since the Boys went to the 3-4, I've been hoping for a DE that can stop the run and get consistent pressure on the QB.
