    Yes before 11am CST for Dak. Cooper's deal may take a bit longer so they may have to tag him but negotiate a deal in the next couple of days.

    My worry is we don’t lock him up. New England or Philly back up the brinks truck and he’s gone

    I remember before Coop came to Dallas, there really wasn't a Dak Love vs Dak Hate mob.
    Coop created the Dak love, because he instantly made Dak somewhat relevant.
    Dak should be smart enough, seems to be smart enough to understand that he needs a true WR1 like he already has in Coop, chemistry established.
    Dak should be man enough to slap some sense into the fresh Prince, Todd France, and tell him that his security blanket in Coop needs to be part of the deal, and if that
    requires just a little bit less to make it happen, then get this done.
    We are not talking much when we are talking millions...lol... but just maybe 1.2m less from Daks side, gets both deals easily done.

    I think it's the other way around... Coop gets signed and Dak gets T-Bagged...

    Allowing Cooper to walk would be stupid.

    Spend a 1st round pick on a guy and then a year and a half later he walks away???

    I was able to trade our entire team in Madden for the first 16 picks in this draft so eager to see how this will play out.

    As usual Stephen Jones overplays his hand and we lose one of them at least and tag the other .. and he immediately comes out and says they are his guys and no one worry the deals will get done ..

    I think Dak gets the exclusive franchise tag and Coop is left unprotected from FA but does eventually get a deal with the Cowboys. Dak is telling the Cowboys FO to go ahead and tag Coop because he(Dak) is a Cowboy no matter what and will work exclusively with the Cowboys to get the long term deal done. But he is also saying he isn't showing up until he has a deal. That's leverage that Dallas does not need to give Dak. They will tag him. Its up to Dak to sign it and oh by the way, he just got tagged as I have been anticipating all along. Exclusive!

    the notion that a QB can just do it all by himself is assinine...brees is great, but he has Thomas...so is brees worthless? not as good? Brady had Gronk and we saw without Gronk and still having Edleman and despite the great OL and good running game, the offense struggled. so lets take away Thomas from Brees and see what happens. we know what happened when we took Gronk away from Brady. plenty of examples of that.

    the question is given weapons and every NFL team who has succeeded has weapons, what can you do and what can you accomplish with those weapons....Dak with cooper has been elite...that's what you expect when you put two players of that caliber together.

    and not supporting or being against dak. Tag is 33. this year, probably 37 next year and 40+ the year after...based on franchise tag values over the past few years. so a three year average of about 37M....why would dak take 33? tannehill just took 29.5. so the numbers aren't outrageous. and its typical negotiations....you start low, they start high. they ask for 40, you give 33. and eventually meet in the middle. based on the rumors, Dak wants a shorter term contract, the cowboys want longer.

    in about 2 years, the numbers will look reasonable. just like Cousins deal or Ryan's deal both of which were outrageous when initially signed.
