    we’ll get a big bag of hot air for Jaclyn

    LVE, I expect will play very well (if he stays healthy) for a new contract so I expect we could get a rd 3 comp for him. I would trade him for a 2 but nothing less because we may as well use him

    HOF caliber talent? :lmao::lmao::lmao2::lmao2::lmao2::lmao2:

    That was funny.........thanks. Jimmy Smith was 1-100 situation.

    They also arent "giving up" on LVE. He gets another year to prove he can stay healthy, and that his rookie year wasnt a fluke. If he does great, they can resign him. If not, they dont have to waste 9 million.

    the problem with LVE is not talent, he has that plenty, the problem is that because of serious neck problems he is literally one hit away from retiring at a position where violent hitting is the calling card. He will demand top LB money. You factor in all these things and this is not a player I give a long term contract

    A surgeon of course. Nobody really knows for sure but I'll go along with what Stephen said and of course the doctor until further notice.

    That may be but you can’t be HOF of your not on the field. Can’t get any pub if you are in the tub.

    He's done. A neck injury is a career killer for a MLB. Cant be tentative or worrying about hitting people.

    If for some miracle he can play a whole season and kill it, what are the chances he strings a few years together like that? Even when he has been healthy the last 2 years he looks terrible.

    Both JSmith and LVE's future with the team is going to depend on how they do this season and how the rookie LBs do this season.

    If some of the rookies have a good season, one or both of them will be gone next year.

    Should be a competitive camp, that's for sure.

    All you forum doctors seem to know everything about LVE's medical makeup.

    My concern was, he was healthy last year until he broke his collarbone (not neck) but wasn't playing well at all when healthy. He played scared. Maybe this is health-related, but nobody here knows that.

    I think they are both gone. LVE would have to play really well and then resign for reasonable.

    The entire defense was awful besides Gregory.

    I didn’t think LVE looked that bad and all the rumors about the scheme being too complex for our players probably had a negative impact on just about everyone.

    Nah pass. Neck injuries don't just get better at linebacker. LVE had one good year and that was his rookie year. The next 2 years he played 19 out of 32 games. I'll pass. Often injured guy. Can't make plays on the sideline.

    You’re using an example of a guy from 30-years ago, really? How about holding on to a guy way to long like Noah Brown, Terrance Williams and Tyrone Crawford and the many other Cowboys that we have held into for too long. I like LVE and he will have an opportunity this year to prove if we need to resign.

    I don’t know how serious it is for the future
    I assume he does
    But he’s fault hard to chase his dream and I hope if it is that dangerous he walks away but I don’t see that happening
    It would be very hard to walk away from his life’s dream

    I dont believe they've given up. They just aren't going to guarantee that kind of money given his last couple of years. If he gets right he may still get paid in Dallas. It's more likely Jaylon is gone first imo

    I think both are on a short and expensive leach
    LVE when healthy is a very good player
    Jaylon is better than most here think
    But jaylon is over paid and when you get an opportunity to fix that you do
    But health risks with LVE are a concern when you sign a long term deal
    Very risky for LVE
    Too expensive for production with Jaylon

    I don't know how this is going to play out, but with Parsons, LVE, Jaylon, Neal, and Cox this could be the best and deepest group of LBers we had in a long time. Or they could suck....

    Costing ourselves a #1 receiver during a time when Troy Aikman was desperate for another weapon (after Novacek retired and Harper walked in free agency) was a disaster. Keeping Smith would've prevented the Joey Galloway debacle (saving us two 1st rounders) and would've better equipped us to absorb the crippling blow of Irvin's career-ending injury.

    Costing ourselves a lumbering run-stopping 43 linebacker in 2021 when that's the easiest position to fill on a defense? Rather less of a problem.
