Clown show continues ...... 6.5 mil a year for a 4th string DE
yes and look at what they got paid that’s my point. we’re bickering over 6.5m for a young player coming off of a good season.
a rookie is not going to give you that unless it’s a first round pick
Its always going to be a bit high.I can live with that although it seems a bit high.
But he better not be the "solution" at DE to replace Gregory.
Its always going to be a bit high.
I never seen a contract that seems a bit low.
The Falcons FA LB that went to the Jags went way under the radar,, guess nobody could remember his name to pay attention.
Foyesade Oluokun was a tackling vacuum that would have fit perfect in Quinns D.
Oluokun is a high-impact signing for a Jaguars defense in need of a leader in the middle, and he led the league in tackles this past season and will have a prime opportunity to do so once again on the Jaguars.
Maybe because he was a former 6th round pick that the Jones' had no interest, even a scarier thought is they didnt even know who he was.
3 years 45 million
So true, just a shame that we plug holes to keep the ship from sinking, rather than going all in and trying to actually be a contender, we pretend as fans that we are contenders, thats some Jerry mind control right there, for the masses.The Joneses had no interest in that. If his agent had contacted the team and said he'd play on a two-year, $8 million deal as long as they gave him all the free Papa John's pizzas he could eat. They would have offered him two years at $6 million and coupons.

A few of us see exactly what the Jones' are doing, and that's just keeping the boat afloat, Jerrys boat.
As long as he has the money to keep his ship cruising, Cowboys are a revenue source like no other.
Jerry is living a blessed life and he would like to thank each and everyone of the fan base that remain loyal enough to keep paying for the right to be loyal.
Now go buy a 40 dollar cap and a 20 dollar beer and enjoy the show.
Just keeping it simple here, and that is .. if Jerry and this FO believed in Dak and proved it by the contract, then why would they not be making a bit more aggressive movement, and yes I do understand its preliminary FA period just beginning,I don't think that's what Jerry thinks they are doing (maybe Stephen). I believe he believes this is the best way to build a contender. Keep your players, draft well and don't overspend in free agency on other teams' free agents. Jerry is very reactionary and this was an overcorrection that was put in place after the bad signing of Brandon Carr (for how much he received).
I say this because we have plenty of evidence in contracts for Elliott, Prescott, Lawrence, etc., that Jerry is not afraid to spend. He's not avoiding free agency because he just wants to keep the boat afloat or he wouldn't give in to the exorbitant amounts demanded by our players (he was even willing to pay $70 million to Gregory). They've just got a poor free agency plan that they are sticking to even though it hasn't been proven to work.
Pierce has been injured the last two seasons. One of the reasons that Zimmer got fired. He signed with the Ravens because that is where he started at. I get the frustration but we need to be patient. I just can’t believe they dropped the ball on Gregory. I thought they should have moved on anyway but the word is he was their number 1 signing. Someone needs to lose their job if that was the plan.A stud DT Michael Pierce just signed for 3 years, 16.5 and would’ve helped give us a true 1 tech. But this is the crap we get
