    It's a what if question.

    Like what is happening with Wentz and Stafford.

    Is this a serious question? Booger & Son haven't figured out how to manage one, let alone two.

    Can't with Zeke unfortunately. If nothing changes, he's not worth half his cap hit over the next two years. He has to stay for 2021. And on the 5th league day of 2021 his 2022 salary is guaranteed. That makes the dead cap spike for 2022. There's no good way around his contract until 2023. Even trading him right now would end with a dead cap at or slightly higher than if Dallas kept him.

    Jaylon. He'll be cut after 2021 if something doesn't change. They could cut him now, but I don't think they will.

    Eagles traded Wentz and still have like a 33 million dollar dead cap. That's not what you want to do if you can help it. The Cowboys gain nothing by trading Zeke. Unless we get something good, then I take it all back.

    In theory this works, but this could also backfire on Dak big time. If a team makes him a huge offer and he refuses it will scare away any team that might have had ideas about signing him. There are always stupid teams in the league, but the bigger the offer Dak turns down, the fewer teams there will be stupid enough to offer him more.

    It is better to have that slim chance at finding a QB than knowingly make the same mistake and sign Dak to a franchise killing contract. All around the league, teams are admitting their mistakes and unloading these overpaid QBs and Dak fans are giddy with hope that Dallas makes the same mistake. SMH

    This thread is the kind of thing that happens when you obsess about Dak not being signed

    If we let Dak go there is no need to resign Dalton. Just embrace the losses and build the team. Its also pointless keeping guys like Zeke and Jaylon around. Hell even Coop and Dlaw should be gone.

    The moment you let Dak go is most likely the moment we begin a total rebuild. Dalton won't get us more than 8 or 9 games next season. So why keep him and struggle to maintain mediocrity?

    With guys like Stafford, Goff, and Wentz gone what is our other option? Houston wants a kings ransom for Watson. Seattle likely the same for Wilson. The odds of improving after signing either of those guys are probably worse than winning with Dak and keeping draft capital. We won't be able to get high enough for Lawrence or Fields.

    So the question is do you think our offensive core is enough to retain Dak, patch up the defense and make a run?

    I believe it is. We need to make some shrewd moves and catch a break or three, but the offense as is can be special imo. Which is why my preference is to keep the franchise QB and go strong towards defensive help.

    I dont want to start another rebuild with the talent we already have.

    I don’t think signing Dak is going to produce a championship, but I don’t expect Dallas to break the ongoing trend of not reaching the Super Bowl anyway. The Jones family will find a way to fail no matter who they sign or release.

    Of course, unless the GOAT wants to volunteer some DNA so we can grow one.

    And there are even more teams who reload at QB every few years, wasting high draft picks, in the hopes that “maybe this time!?!”

    As to your example, you know what else those teams have in common? Those same contracts you are talking about them dumping ... are tied to players they drafted in the top ten.

    Dak is better than Goff. He’s better than Wentz.

    Your scenario doesn’t really apply here.

    the choices are this

    Sign a very good QB to a long term QB
    Roll the dice on a long shot
    Sign an underperforming journeyman

    give me option 1

    Quite true, in fact many players had to have second jobs to go to in the off season. I can still remember when Herschel Walker was signed by the Cowboys for five years $5m total, not per....and it shocked the NFL world. $1m per season was astounding. Yes, now they cry after being drafted cuz its like winning the lottery. So does their family.
