Carl Nicks, Jr...
That's OK, bud, mine's fried by the time I read that far...
Last I checked (a coupla days ago), NFLDS had him as their 98th best prospect... he might make it down to 113, but if the Boys really did like him, they'd probably want to use that 3rd...
Y'know, when I posted that I thought it would be a brief happy memory for some long-timers...
Never was the threat of a fake punt more real...
Question, Sdogo or Hos? Or Silverbear!
If cowboys sign mario williams, can we then possibly trade spencer if a team is interested. Granted, cowboys might use mario strictly as DE, but at OLB, with Ware, Ratliff, Hatcher, and Mario primarly rushing Ware and Mario would be a force at OLB, which is basically what 3-4 is built for, linebackers rushing. To possibly free up money for carl nicks. I feel this team (I have stated it over and over, but will state it again here) needs impact type players like a mario and carl nicks. Especially Nicks who has been on a super bowl team, knows what it takes to be a champion, and pushes other players around him to be better. Just like troy aikman said, that the early 90s cowboys didnt know what it took to be a championship team till charles haley got here and showed them what it took. We need impact players like that on this team as well as leaders, but players that hold other players accountable and you do it the right way.
Also, we can resign spencer even after he signs his tender, to a lesser friendly contract right?.
ray: If we do trade down, dont get decastro, please let it be cordy glenn. He is a monster at OG. Also, we would possibly get that extra 3rd rounder. What I would do also when you get that extra 3rd rounder, trade down one of those 3rds and get an extra 4th and 7th. Then, we are fixed for the draft. Dont trade any more or get to cute, but get some extra picks to get some good players our scouts like and recommend.
I dont like wiley, one of the things you have to remember in draft, what was the kids production, if a one year wonder why? To me 1 year wonders mean their just playing to get money and once they get that money and contract, they wont play till their contract is up again. I would rather have a player who has skins on the wall.
Finally, possibly dont trade all way down to 20th, cordy glenn will be gone before then. I am thinking glenn will be gone by 17th or 18th pick.
I don't think trading down a second time is a great idea.
Ok, youve got 2 number three draft picks for trading down in 1st round. You can easily get a 3rd rounder in 1st by trading down from 14th to 17th.
Then you will have 2 # 3 picks. Trade down the lowest one in 3rd round 3-5 slots lower, this should give you that 3rd and a 4th, plus maybe a 7th.
So, then you have a
1st 17th in 1st rd
3rd Cowboys pick
3rd trade down to 3-5 slots get a 3rd, 4th and possibly a 7th
6th compensation pick
This way after what sdogo said in his mock draft per what he has heard from his sources, you have a couple extra picks to get a safety, DE besides what sdogo drafted. Possibly you could even get a QB in 3rd round like foles or big qb from other arizona school.
Yeah, we can trade him, but he'd have to sign his tender first. As for resigning to a longer term deal after he were to sign the tender, sure, teams do that all the time.
Theoretically, we could resign him to a longer term deal and then trade him, but that never happens. We'd be on the hook for the signing bonus and the acceleration against the cap.

Live From the Combine: Friday News & Notes
Players as well as scouts, coaches, medical staffs and general managers from all 32 franchises have begun to descend on Indianapolis for the 2012 combine. Every day we’ll provide you with the news and notes swirling around the city. Update: Brandon Carr a Cowboy?? Riley Reiff to guard??
Sunday, February 26th
- Teams here in Indianapolis feel when the dust clears in free agency cornerback Brandon Carr will be the newest member of the Dallas Cowboys. The team will then look to use their first selection on an offensive lineman, but who? Last night we reported the Baltimore Ravens would likely target Cordy Glenn. They may need a back-up plan as word is Glenn continues to sky-rocket up draft boards and ending up with Dallas in the top half of round one is a real possibility.
I don't think 3-5 slots will net your an additional 4th and a 7th.
Just not a fan of collecting picks for the sake of carpet bombing the later rounds in hopes of finding a guy.
Had seen this anywhere else. An interview with Stanton.
Great work thanks, I dont see the M. Williams signing but I didnt think they would try and go for N. Asumuga (sp) either.
Thanks for the link, I never saw that.
You only have room for so many rookies on the final roster then 2-4 more on the PS. There is no reason to continue to trade down and end up with 10-12 picks. IF you have targeted a couple players in the middle rounds that you really want then having a couple of extra picks and trading back up is an option. That often bites you on the butt though.
We need to really be focused and selective this off season.
Sdogo ... does losing 10 million in cap space affect getting those FA you said in the first post?
Sure does but I will say don't think for a moment Jerry did not know about this weeks ago and that his team has been sitting on their hands. This is not a situation that will "just happen" with out being dragged out.
SDogo, if they knew this weeks ago does that mean there plans will go forward as if this was not happening. In other words, just the way you stated in your free agent strategy and draft?
I'm reading that they can split up the $10 million however they want over the next two years, so theoretically, they could shift much (if not all) of that to next year, and still have what they project to have for this year.
It's my understanding they knew of the penalty and had a figure estimated. My impression is this is about 3 million more then they expected. I think it will limit in some regards the moves they expected to make with value FA's but expect them to pursue the major catch they have in mind.
