    The article covers this pretty well. Dak would prefer a 4-year deal. If they want a fifth year, he's asking for a contract $10 million higher than what they've offered ($185 vs. $175).

    Sounds like
    Cowboys offer: 5 years, $175, $105 guaranteed

    Dak's offers:
    4 years, $140 OR
    5 years, $185

    I don't know what the guarantees he's asking for are.

    Please dont give this guy this kinda contract smdh I dont see how anyone can justify giving this guy this kinda money he is a fringe top 10 guy lets use his money to address other positions and draft a guy next year.

    That's perfectly fine. That 5th year would be all non-guaranteed funny money. He'll be either extended or cut when his guarantees run out well before that 5th year anyway.

    In the past I might have leaned towards doing just cause the cap goes up so much each year. But with the new normal? Hard pass for me.

    Makes sense. His team wants a 4 year deal. They insist on a 5 year deal so they ask for a outrageous number like 45. Just give him the 4 year deal and get this over with.

    That 45 number is for them to agree to a 4 year deal.

    Well to be fair, by the 5th year QB salaries are going to be HUGE. I'd want an opportunity to get an extension sooner than later.

    In five years, $45,000,000.00 will be the average salary for starting QBs.

    A month or two ago, the deal was 38/40 on the 5th year, depending on who you believe. Now it's 45, what has changed between then and now?

    Make it an option year and get him signed. I like a 4 year deal better anyway.

    Yeah I don't think he'd see 45 million that 5th year regardless. If he sucks they'd cut him. If he lives up to it they'd re-sign him before it came into play.

    In 2024? I doubt $45M will look like a huge number then. So count me as one on this board who disagrees with you.
