Do we know how much McClay will be paid?
He is probably getting paid good GM money.
I don't blame him a bit for taking it. Who wants the headache of actual accountability?
bahahhahah... every thread on this board wanders all over the place.The OP was about McClay
Maybe if you want to post ablout something unrelated, you create a new post
Just a thought
Dallas Cowboys reach new deal with VP Will McClay, sources say
Will McClay, the vice president of player personnel who is in his 20th season with the Cowboys, has reached a new contract to stay with the franchise, sources told ESPN.
FRISCO, Texas -- With a number of general manager jobs open across the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys have made sure nobody will be able to lure away Will McClay, agreeing to a new contract with their Vice President of Player Personnel, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
While owner and general manager Jerry Jones has final say, McClay has been the Cowboys' chief personnel man since 2014, heading up the team's draft and free-agent processes, working closely with executive vice president Stephen Jones.
"Excellent personnel man and an even better person," coach Mike McCarthy said earlier this week. "I really enjoy working with Will. I can't say enough about him. He's very astute at his approach and how the inner workings of the personnel department and the collaboration between Will, Stephen and Jerry. We spend a tremendous amount of time together and I enjoy working with him.
"He's obviously someone that I know as an organization we would not want to lose. But he's definitely worthy of any opportunity that pursues him. Will does a tremendous job."

One of the smartest things this organization has done these last few years.
Awesome news, he's the best! He'd be a GM in any other city. Effectively he is in big D also, just not in title or on paper. But make no mistake, he's the man making the decision about personal and IMHO he's doing a fantastic job.
Good pointFirst off let me state that I have been a fan of Will’s for like forever, even started a few threads several years ago. With that said, it is not a given that Will would make a great or even good GM. That position has more responsibilities and would remove his major asset of being a great scout. Yes he would supposedly make the final calls and the draft, but he wouldn’t have the opportunities to put the work in on scouting as he does now.
True. They could be drafting wastes like Taco Charlton. Wait.Will McClay is the MVP of the front office. If you wonder what our drafts would look like without his expertise, just go back to the Chan Gailey-Dave Campo years. Jerry is a terrible judge of NFL talent. Will McClay is one of the best.
The article says McClay has been in this job 20 years. That’s inaccurate. He’s been with the team 20 years but he has been in his current role 7 years.
At least Jerry and Stephen know they are lost without McClay.

This is what you will ALWAYS get when Jerry is the final decision maker. Not to say Will McClay would bat 100%...but because Jerry has final say....McClay will always run the risk of Jerry overruling him...mainly due to someone being in his ear...because Jerry clearly does not break down film and go on scouting trips.McClay was an accomplice on that one. Marinelli was the perpetrator.
