    Looks like his 2019 cap hit is 7M. 2020 jumps to 15M. Dallas couldn’t fit that?

    Basically averages 14.3 million or so per year assuming he fulfills the 4 year deal.

    Bingo, Finally someone gets it.
    Forget the total contract value, keep your eyes on the guaranteed money.

    Best news I heard all day....this draft is loaded w/ safeties. I'll take one without the diva attitude....and wants to be paid like he's still elite.

    32 mill is a pretty elite deal for two years

    Folks on this board read length and get all dumb.

    He only plays 2 years in that scenario....... cap hits are 7m, 15m and 10m dead money in 2021

    3 years costs 43m
    4 years costs 55m

    A lot of crying about Safety. How did we get X'ed out of the playoffs? Last I checked it was NT. We've been screaming at the top of our lungs for a Fat boy in the middle.

    Technically you're right that it's possible except for the fact that Jones has already said he will get extended this off season so he would still be on that list of 5 players the Cowboys want to resign. Using your logic and I've already said this a couple of times, Elliott's contract isn't up until after the 2019 season and the Cowboys could exercise the 5th year option for 2020, but he's on that same list of players Jones wants signed this off season.

    I agree 100%. No 1st rounder, the
    Hope you didn't spend too much time in front of the computer coming up with that zinger. No points off for trying, I suppose.

    Yeah he really dragged the defense and team down all those years they were the best in the league, going to and winning super bowls.

    And still making the playoffs regularly.

    A real cancer that destroyed that team from the inside, I’ll tell ya.

    Notice that the only thing the people taking about him as a "cancer" have is a picture where he's flipping off the head coach?

    None of this teammates had a bad word to say about him. This "cancer" talk is simply bitterness from fans who feel slighted that he didn't sign with their team. Like when the hot girl turned them down for a date. "She wasn't that hot anyway..."

    The mental gymnastics are almost nauseating to see at times. Anything to defend the FO decisions.

    Like we are supposed to be apologetic for wanting our team to make moves to try and win a Super Bowl.

    It's fandom.

    Some people let that fandom overrule their rational mind. They can't handle even the slightest bit of bad news about their favorite team, so they have to come up with anything else as an excuse.

    If he does that to the Seahawks command, he would do it to Dallas also.

    You think Jerry and the high command didn't notice that?!?

    I know they did. Mgmt is always taking notice.

    Only if the Cowboys screwed him over like the Seahawks did. To everyone from that Super Bowl team not named Russell Wilson.

    He was leading the league in INTs last year when he got hurt. Why would we need the ET from 3yrs ago?

    The safety position is just as important if not more important. Just ask Ed Reed and the Ravens about how important it is. Or ask Jimmy Johnson about how important our safeties were on our 92 and 93 teams.
