    The earlier two back surgeries were a red flag when we gave Lawrence his new contract. He has held up pretty well. Or so we thought. Maybe the back was an issue last season for decreased sack production. And even the season before.

    Maybe. Maybe not.

    Bigger takeaway is that he had 5 months from Feb to July and did not play football. During that time, he had back surgery. Who knows what the future brings with him? I would not feel comfortable paying him $20M+ for what little production he brings along with a question about his back.

    I would lean toward this being his last year in Dallas. He may have a monster year, though. We shall see.

    I would say last year for DLaw too unless he ups production.

    Yes, they could be telling us the truth. The point is, we never know when that is because they have deliberately deceived us before.

    When the GM is also the team's owner as well as the owner of the stadium then truth can be obstacle to selling tickets.

    There is a certain time of the season when Cowboy news takes a certain slant. Everything is just dandy! Then a week before the first game half a squad is on the injured list.

    Jerry Jones has earned the skepticism. He is a walking talking conflict of interest. You never really know if your listening to the president of Football Operations or a slick salesman.

    It would be a 19M cap hit to let him go. Lawrence will be a Cowboy for at least two more seasons.

    Pending dead cap is already spent. What we can avoid is pouring *more* money into the same rathole.

    Gotta have that built in excuse for more lack of production.

    These surgery’s are always “clean ups”

    +1 it is incredible how easily people ignore 19 million in base salary because of some crazy dead money figure. The dead money is dead money it doesn't come back to live just because you invest another 19 million.

    THIS

    Part of a general bit of accounting crazy where people just look at cap hit for one year at a time.

    I tend to agree! Clean up is a term used for a knee scope getting rid of loose cartilage pieces and smoothing out rough edges where it may of been torn. The only way I could see that being said about a back surgery is to remove a bone spur or slight bulging disc pressing on a nerve. Probably done minimally invasive with a laser.

    Dak’s second surgery in Dec on his ankle was for ‘clean up.’ I was worried but seems like everything is ok and it was just a ‘clean up.’
