Pretty much everyone has dismissed a third tag out of hand (myself included) because it would cost roughly $50 million. But the more I think about it the Cowboys front office may at least considering be a third tag if they can't get a deal done this year. The salary cap is expected to rebound with greater attendance and new tv deals. Also the Cowboys don't have anyone coming that's even worth paying a sizable deal besides Gallup. It's questionable if paying Gallup is even reasonable given Cooper is already making $20 million. Is it reasonable to be spending almost $40 million at the receiver position? Not saying a third tag is actually on the table, but simply letting your biggest asset walk for a 3rd round comp pick is indefensible. If the Cowboys went through the draft with Dak on the tag and don't make a move at qb, the potential of a third tag would be the only way I could rationalize such a move.
