Crawford was clearly a mistake. Sometimes your projections about a player are right and sometimes they are wrong. Now the good thing about this contract is that it is only two years and not much of it is guaranteed.

Now of course if Collins comes out and becomes an ALL PRO the next two years resigning him after that will be really hard. But that is then and this is now and right now it was a good move.

Glad to see the Cowboys keeping their word to La'el and good to see him get some of the money he lost because of false media reports. The Cowboys didn't have to do this but the fact is Jerry does take care of his guys... which is another reason the media needs to back off this Lucky Whitehead thing. The Cowboys did not do Lucky wrong. They know more than the media does to make that decisions and so they pulled the trigger and have now moved on. The media needs to stop their campaigning of Lucky as victim.

This^

Jerry gave him word when it was us against 31 other teams in the recruiting

Jerry is loyal to a fault whatever else you think of him

If he's an all pro---Jerry won't let him walk. Jerry has never lost a player that he really wanted to keep. Only all pro I can remember losing is Murray...they just didn't value the position.

This team should be in decent cap shape for the next 5 years barring some change in philosophy. Dak will be paid in 2 but we really won't start feeling it until 4 years. I expect the team to continue to bargain shop in free agency and only value their own players...that's a good way to stay ahead of the cap.

No worries. The FO will lock Martin up for as long as possible. He is a killer and a must long term sign. Count on it.
Martin would be an idiot to sign for anything more than 3 years. When the next CBO is negotiated the players share of revenue is going to skyrocket, as we have seen in the NBA. You lock yourself in for 8 you wont see the bump.

I wouldn't take that bet..... networks are already getting rebates..... ratings were down last year

ESPN overbid for the NBA by 200% and they instantly regretted it.... they thought that FoxSports1 was going to make a big bid but didn't

Fair point, but The networks aren't the only game in town. In a few more years you might find a lot more amazons, twitters and netflixes bidding for rights. Trust me, they aren't afraid of overbidding.

Besides, what's the risk? Hell be what, 28 in three more years? Injuries aren't major concerns for linemen.
