Usually all in means spend whatever to go for it this year. Then inside of two years trade or rehash a pro bowler to get under the cap. We’re possibly going all in but in a way that allows us to have a healthy cap . If it works. the rest of the league will copy.

i think i get what you are saying....using draft capital to get players that can start now but on 1-2 year deals, signing as much of our core as possible and avoiding bad contracts that mortgage the future....its working because teams are now focused on offloading big contracts when they are in rebuild mode more so than has been seen in years past. Luckily, the cowboys are not sitting idle but i dont think they are doing something revolutionary

Should take a look what the Jets just did...dumped a disgruntled player...for a draft pick.and moved up in the draft...signed a better player in free agency. It's sneaky moves like that ....that pay off.

I'm not buying the Cowboys are "all-in" in the first place. How can you be all-in with Dak at QB? Sure, they are paying the "all-in" QB price to have Dak but he's not the guy to get the job done. He's capable of getting us 12 wins every regular season but the oddity to that is the losses will be games we should have won. He'll get us to the playoffs but he's not capable of stringing wins together in the playoffs. If my team is all-in then they should have a legitimate chance to go all the way but thanks to Dak, that's just not possible. I don't see Dak ever winning a Conference title for the Cowboys. Long story short, with Dak, we're not really "all-in". ;)

I don't get the we are all in, because we traded for two 30+ year players way past their prime with one of them on his 5th team.....

we just patched a couple of holes and getting ready for draft. we didn't spend a lot of money, didn't sign any big names. we better have a good draft.

You don't have to mortgage the entire future to improve your team. The Cowboys trades were smart short term trades that will be off the books in a couple years. Their trade partners were in rebuild mode, wanted to clear cap space for younger players.

The Cowboys are not all in. That's ridiculous. They're just breaking tradition of doing absolutely nothing. It's nice to see them doing something to try and get over the top.

The deal this year, I think is that we set the market, because teams were looking to poach a few of our guys and we poached a few teams along the way as well.

The difference this off-season was . . . Jerral Wayne set the market now. He's been brilliant, or let's just go ahead and say it. He's been smart enough to heed to McClay's advice...

I agree. You can't get too crazy with this whole trading draft picks thing.

It can’t be all in - if you are playing just the tip

28 years says it will only result in 29. Jerry has no clue how to get to a NFC Championship game let alone a SB.

Hope you are right!
What we were doing before was not working, so I welcome the change!

I like the fact they are not trading their high draft picks, just middle rounders.

Unfortunately, with Dallas restructuring Dak's contract the Cowboys will probably extend his contract. Hopefully, Dallas picks a qb in the draft and in a year has tremendous upside.
