That would speak volumes as to how poorly the front office has handled this process. 130ish million of guaranteed money over the course of 3 years. I agree with you that letting Dak walk for only a comp pick is indefensible. If they can't get something worked out by the time of the draft they probably need to take a QB. Then I could see tagging him after he has another year of big stats in this offense, but only with the idea of trading him from there. My question is if another team traded for him could they negotiate a long term deal and un-tag him? I ask because that cap hit is unlikely to be absorbed by many teams. Although the future of the cap may be much higher by that point.
