This^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.
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.
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.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.
I wouldn't take that bet..... networks are already getting rebates..... ratings were down last yearMartin would be an idiot to sign for anything more than 3 years.

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.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
