None of this song and dance makes any sense to me. The Cowboys if they really wanted Dak should have extended him the second the CBA allowed it and it would have been like $30m per or something. If the Cowboys didn't really believe in Dak they should have moved him immediately so they could draft another cheap QB and try to stay ahead of the QB inflation problem that way. Instead we have years of the Cowboys saying they want to do it but not pulling the trigger as QB contract inflation blows past $40m into $45m per. Tag Dak now and it's like a $38m hit in a season where you have $19m in space BEFORE accounting any cost of keeping Dak. The Cowboys aren't 1 lucky break away from a championship and now you can't make any FA moves so what does that even do but kick the can down the road? Either give up and sign him so you can at least game the cap system with how you structure the deal, or just give up and move on. This in between crap is the worst of all possible worlds and just poisons the well.
