    He'll be better in this defense but I don't know if that means he'll be good.

    He played 100% of defensive snaps in almost all games last season which was far too many.

    He'll be OK this season if he becomes the 3rd LB; however, if that happens he'll be too expensive to keep in 2022 as the 3rd LB.

    thats a big IF....

    what if Quinn gets the most out of JS and LVE this season.. saying they are gone before they have shot at getting back on track is just fans wanting player gone as if its an automatic

    facts are most likely if this year doesnt go well many high priced players will be moved either cut, traded, or asked to take a pay cut

    zeke-replaced with pollard and added player
    AC-replaced by gallup
    LC- if his injurys is career threatened and he relapses well got to move on
    TS-last shot at extending his career
    Dlaw- time to put up or be gone, Gregory will hopefully shine in 16 game year
    JS- welp
    LVE-injuries' the new LEE wont get the same patience

    big changes will happen and that includes if a relatively healthy teams somehow crashed and burns MM could be gone..a ot of big ifs..MM gets mulligan for the injuries' last year again in no offseason to speak of..he wont have that excuse this year..he was brought hired to take a Vet team and win now so if that doesnt happen we go younger on players and coaches..

    I was all guaranteed at signing, basically they should have just left him on his rookie deal.

    I agree with you. If things don’t go well this year we might see a whole lot of changes next year. There are certainly several salary issues to address.

    I hope so. I just have no confidence in the organization to make a timely decision. Its almost like they try to avoid the embarrassment of admitting they were wrong. Explains why Tyrone Crawford stuck around so long in spite of absurd cap hits vs his production.

    They definitely have a hard time admitting when they’re wrong. It might just shatter their well-crafted illusion that things have been going well for these 25-years-plus.

    Its as if they view every year as its own bubble completely unrelated to previous years. There are no connections, patterns, or correlations. Anything can happen! Thats why we win the optimistic spirit award every off season.

    For those willing to buy what they’re selling.

    So do we have to go an entire year of this. Jaylon is not going anywhere this year. And he will probably be here next year.
    So LVE leaves in FA after this year. Unless he plays like he did his rookie year. So if he leaves, we may get a 3rd round comp pick.

    Parsons and Cox becomes the 2 main starters. That leaves Jaylon as a viable back up rotation guy, even at his pay. But better than taking a cap hit next year. He can even start when they have 3 LB's in there. Also it depends on his play this year of course.

    I will wait until after the season to see where it all stands. This is how I see as of now.

    You are right and wrong. We aren't cutting Jaylon but we aren't cutting LVE either, not just yet. LVE is still under contract for one more year so he has time to show he is repaired and back to his wolf hunter self. Drafting Micah Parsons was about rotation. All our LBers will be rotating more to keep them fresh. We don't know what the team believes about LVE so we shouldn't project what we think in that place. LVE not getting his 5th-year option exercised is a direct result of his lack of playing time last year. If he is fully healed, there is no reason to think his playing time will continue to be impeded.

    The savings are pretty minimal even if we cut him next offseason. I think we may be stuck with him until 2023

    Jaylon is 100% here this year.
    Cutting him saves you zero money because he is GTD already.

    In 2022 if you cut him you save about 2.5M. So he may be cut or he may stick another season depending upon how he plays in this scheme.
    Financially it's not all that beneficial until 2023.

    Dallas drafted 2 LBs and lost 2 in the off-season: Sean Lee and Joe Thomas.
    They did not pick up year 5 for LVE signaling they fear he isn't right physically.

    You could see a 2022 with:
    LOLB: ??/Neal
    Will: Cox
    Mike: Jaylon
    ROLB/DPR: Parsons

    People tea reading Jaylon's demise may well be doing wishful thinking.

    A year ago we were talking about having the best LB core in the NFL and then under Nolan's leadership almost every player regressed. Hoping Jaylon can bounce back, along with other players. If he doesn't then agreed that it's time to move on.

    It makes no financial or personnel sense to cut him this year. It would purely be out of spite unless he just wasn’t one of our 6-7 best linebackers, which he obviously is.

    Jaylon is gone next year. The dead cap makes sense based on his recent production, and we know he doesn't adjust well to new schemes.
