    I think he is referring to it from the Seahawks side. They would have Wilson's $39 million on the books and have Dak Prescott on a $37 million franchise tag if they made that trade. That's almost half the salary cap on two players.

    This is the first link I saw. It's been pretty widely reported that the main point of contention was the years. Which is why the best time to get a deal done was after 2018. The Cowboys could have frontloaded the contract into that 2019 season when Dak was only making $2 million, and Dak would have been happy with a 5 year deal expiring in 2024. Now two years later all indications point to him wanting a 3 year deal.

    Oh for sure it's not a straight up trade. But if you can bring in a player like Wilson I would do it in a heart beat.

    It isn't vs. It is both. The Seahawks would have to eat Russell Wilson's dead money AND take whatever Dak's salary is for a trade to work. The dead money from a trade would be $39 million according to overthecap which I trust way more than that show. But even if the dead cap was only $32 million, that is still a ton of money wrapped up in two players.

    I'm looking for the link where someone who's actually a part of the negotiations confirmed $35m/4yrs would have gotten it done last year. Lots of championing whatever rumor fits an agenda in this thread. Or just pulling nonsense out of thin air.

    teams need longer deals for cap purposes

    most players who want to play for and win with at ram understand that and accommodate the team. Of course if your ONLY objective is money grab you won’t care and that is what is happening here

    I have no problem with a player trying to get every dime they can, but I also have no problem calling a spade a spade. You're 100% correct. This is all about getting paid regardless of what that does to the teams chances of winning games. Dak and his agent refused to budge on any part of the language. When they showed they wouldn't negotiate, Jerry should have made a trade.

    If the Cowboys had a sense of urgency after 2018 they could have likely gotten the 5th year extension and had 2019 to frontload as well.

    No one is confirming anything so by that rationale this whole thread (and most of CZ is nonsense). If that is nonsense to you then you shouldn't even be on this post. What is the last thing that was actually confirmed by someone in the negotiations? I don't think we've heard anything directly since Dak said he didn't expect to be the highest paid qb 2 years ago.

    I actually rooted for Romo for about 5 years before realizing he would never wins SB even with a great defense. Dude was too snake bit. It took me less time to figure out Dak and Cousins
