    I don't know the contract is only 1.5 Mill with a possiblity of going to 3 mill. I think it takes 2 to make a deal Cowboys were interested. I never expect Jerry or Stephen to pay out what ever someone wants it has to be a 2 way deal that benifets the Cowboys and the player

    Remember this guy was unsure if he even wanted to play football.

    Who knows what the holdup might have been. He might just have been waiting for this week to make sure they were serious about offering only a one-year deal.
    Either way, he's in Dallas, so, hooray.

    Or maybe he was waiting to force the boys into only offering a 1 year deal, so he could sign and show up again next year the 1st week of September.

    Clearly something changed. I doubt is was Waters caving.

    He may not have caved, maybe the differance was the added incentive that brings it from 1.5 to 3 mill. Again Cowboys should not cave to demands either, to me this sounds like a fair deal on a 1 year contract.

    That is what was being put out there. Is it really true or not we will likely never know. I tell my wife I don't want to do the dishes but I always end up in the kitchen after dinner doing just that.

    How long did Cook have to learn the playbook last year?

    The reports have pretty consistently been that the team was balking at the incentives. To me, that sounds nuts. What team doesn't want players who are working toward incentives?

    depends on the incentives, I don't think saying if he plays 1/3 of the season he should get the 3 mill. We don't know what exactly the incentives are and what was being asked

    The incentives are likely easy to reach. But really, would you pay 3 mill a year for a probowl caliber guard?

    Here is a hint. In two years we've paid Bernardeu over 6 mill. In two years we've paid Nate Livings over 6 mill.

    Cook had a full offseason and was in playing shape. Not the same.

    No, if you're referring this this year, that was Brandon Moore.

    Waters didn't want to play for the Patriots last year. He wanted them to release him and allow him to play for another team, but they held onto his rights; therefore, he just stayed home.

    Waters said all along this year that he was interested in playing for a team in Texas, but only for the right price.

    How well does he sing or hum? Is there a soundtrack out on it? Where do I buy it? Was Patrick Swayze starring in it or was it Emmitt Smith that was dancing in it. I'm so confused. :)

    Should they give him a pedicure every day after practice too? I mean, if you are entitled, you are entitled.
