    Skip said Dak was offered 33 at the beginning of last season.

    Yeah, after everybody was insulted by the original $25 million offer. Damage done.

    And this exact situation shows why he did not take it. Right now he is going to get 33 for this year and around 38.5-41 next year, depending on how they calculate the 20%, so why would he sign a longer deal that gives him less than what he would have gotten over the next 2 years?

    Ad hominem only detracts from the discussion.

    Yeah, I thought the floor for Dak to sign this year was 35. There's no reason for him to rush. Let the market climb.

    "Muh feelz! "

    You don't make your best offer initially. Getting all butthurt over negotiating is silly.

    Can they rescind the tag and then give him a non exclusive. I dont know I am going to do without all the tag and trade speculation!

    Im hoping people still speculate, even though its not possible anymore

    So you’re asking me not to disagree with others? Do you promise the same?

    Like that initial, misguided, sweeping generalization about the forum?

    I agree.

    No, I encourage disagreement. But not those offbase, sweeping generlizations about people and positions that don't exist.

    Tell that to Dak and his agent then. I guess they should have just jumped at whatever they were offered, because.... Cowboys.

    But if I were in their shoes and offered $25 million after Wentz got $32, I'd take it personally too. Especially after having played four years for nothing.

    But you go ahead and trumpet the obvious negotiating prowess of the Joneses that brought us to today.

    *Whispers quietly* he’s not a franchise QB.

    That'd be about par for the course for the Cowboys.

    Well I could be wrong, but I think he wants the tag money, and to play this season, and prove something.
    So for that he needs to be in all the camps, at least TC.
    I dont think they wanted any contract the jones boys would offer at this point.
    So I think he has to sign if he wants to be involved with the team and coaches. If he is going to play he needs to be ready since
    it could be relatively new offense to learn.

    You think Dak isn't signing a contract not because of numbers, but because his feelings were hurt? If so, good. I'm against signing hyperemotional players who let their feelings get in the way of business.

    But I don't think it's true. Dak is not such a delicate daisy. I think it's numbers. Dak wants more than they're offering. Hence, impasse. It takes both sides to come to a deal.

    The only guaranteed way for Jerry to get beyond the impasse is to totally cave to what Dak wants. If you want to blame Jerry, how high an offer do you want him to make? 38mil? 40mil? 50mil?

    I was referring to the ad hominem against you:
    Don’t be so thin skinned.​

    I don't know what occurred prior to that.

    I'm in agreement with Colin Cowherd:

    There was really no reason for the exclusive tag. They have him at 31.5M for this year. Might as well have given him the contract if they were going to do that. I think Jerry is more worried about his finances than he is on how it affects the cap.

    “Positions that don’t exist”? “Offbase sweeping generalizations?” My original contention was that the Cowboys are heavily criticized for every decision they make. You dispute that? Seriously?
