    Tank seems to be following the same career trajectory as Dez. Best on the team but not top 5. Complained until he got his money. Received top money. Then year one under his new deal he disappeared. About all he has done since he got his new deal is “talked” a lot.

    I am concerned that he got his money and like Dez really isn’t all that into football at this point. Just talks a lot, and does very little.

    This contract could be a “bust” boys and girls.

    Dude played on a bad shoulder on the franchise tag for his money.

    People are....not smart.

    Given the new coaching changes, I think at this point it's better to wait and see which players the new coaching staff keeps and, more importantly, see how they perform in a new system with new coaching before writing off players as busts.

    I think after one year with a new coaching staff and system, many of the questions we have about several of our current players will be answered, at least within the system we are running going forward.

    There is no telling what Tank will be. But at this point someone would have to be stretching the truth to say Tank was worth what we paid him last year.

    Tank and Jaylon for sure. Zeke is somewhat more of a grey area.

    Thanks for coming in and providing such a substantive contribution to this thread. You must be a Tank appologist.

    Actually he held the team hostage until he got his money. He refused to have surgery until he got paid. Sounds like a real team player there.

    Cry me a river on what a team guy he is.

    Dez also lost his drive and his mind at some point, or at least common sense.

    I don't like his contract or the way he went about getting it but it's a bit early for me to say that Tank won't be productive, but that's on the negative side of being the next Dez. Dez did put up quite a few touchdowns so Tank has the ways to go as far as matching him with sacks, and Dez did purchase that monkey :laugh:

    A guy who put it in the line, produced and got paid? Yes he fits the mold.

    Let’s wait until Dez is about 37 and have him come back to be more like Witten. And let’s get them both a walker while we are at it.

    Yes after two seasons of not getting extended...once on the last year of his deal and then again on the franchise tag.

    He paid his dues.

    Is really wish contracts weren’t knowledge to the public. It would be interesting to see how these discussions go if we didn’t know how much guys were making.

    Dez was arguably the best WR in the league when he got paid...
    Refusing to settle for anything less than you deserve is complaining now? Do you work on a massive discount for your employer?
    By disappeared, do you mean he sustained a Jones fracture that ultimately derailed his career...? lol
    Dez was touted as being one of the hardest workers on the team and someone who loved football more than anything... and if that’s not enough, his in-game passion, style of play & playing through injuries should speak to how much he was “into football”. Y’all just be saying anything on here.
    Tank should talk about how he’s the only guy on the defensive line consistently commanding double teams.
