    It's my understanding that the Cowboys restructure a lot of contracts early on this season to open up cap room for 2021, most likely to be able to resign Dak to an extension. Dak is 99% returning, if they cannot come to teams again, I bet the Cowboys slap another tag on him.

    Dallas absolutely will tag him again and they have enough cap maneuverability to do so

    Fans have to accept Dak is the team's franchise QB today and for the future. At some point they will sign him to a long-term contract.

    Yep. It's a myth that we are going to be in cap hell next year. The one thing this FO does well is math and they have positioned themselves well to pay Dak and still be somewhat active in FA.

    I agree that that is most likely going to happen..but if he doesn't get an extension by the deadlone next year, he's absolutely gone..so it's not 100% certain he's staying long term

    I believe both parties want to get it done and they were reportedly getting close right up to the deadline. It is possible he won't return if agreement cannot be reached, but unlikely at this juncture.

    I know my dude @PAPPYDOG is not going to like this and talk about "come Spring" and all, but I think it's about 85% that the team re-signs him long term.
    Just IMO and not necessarily saying I support it, or not, but I think that's what is going to happen.

    Edit: I also believe he will get hit by the Tag again first.

    -I don't foresee mass cap transactions happening. NFL isn't going to force teams to release players just for this upcoming season.

    -There are a few contracts in which they can get out of after next season without too much dead money; Lawrence, Jaylon, Cooper to name a few. That would be the year in which we could see a high priced veteran released.

    -Team has a war chest of draft picks coming this year with several comp selections. This is the best way to control quality talent at a discount rate. With all the contract extensions handed out recently, they are going to have to hit on these selections to balance their cap situation.

    I would like to see Wilson as the top draft pick because of the salary cap. I can’t see why it would make any sense trading Collins. OT should be a priority in this draft as it is. Trading Collins would only serve to weaken the OL. Tyron can’t be depended on at this point. Martin may play OT very well, but the RG position would weaken if they move him.

    Collins is worth more than a 2nd or 3rd and change. At least to us he is. Its a terrible decision to part ways with him so cheaply imo.

    I also believe Dlaw is still a huge part of our defensive success and if you move him you create yet another void.

    I still liked your post and many of your points. Cant say I agree with them all though.

    Come the Spring.....:muttley:...... The Dak issue is a debate between reality and common sense vs the mind-set of Jerry's world.
    There is no way Dak deserves a mega-deal based on the last 4 years as it's clear as day he is NOT a franchise QB and the results pretty much prove it.
    Now the only intangible is Jerry Jones the worst GM in the NFL for the past 26 years.
    The only thing I can confirm is that if in fact, Dak gets that most coveted long-term deal the Cowboys are doomed to mediocrity for the next 5 years minimal.
    We await GM Jerry's decision as he is the only one who would even consider paying this inept garbage bozo the Big Bucks!:huh:

    We do await the decision of our fearless leader.
    One way, or another.

    Jaylon is a player who consistently puts in "extra effort" because he constantly guesses wrong and is out of position.

    Ya know..

    It's just too early to explore connect-the-dots like you want here.

    Maybe the week before the draft we really know more.

    We have an idea where Dak is with his rehab..

    We know what draft pick we have to work with..

    How much the Cap is going to change..

    Is Dalton going to remain as a back up or are we scrambling like heck in case Dak is not ready come July..

    just a few minor details.

    I know there are more..

    But I say " do not borrow trouble before it happens."

    People in this Forum act like they don't have a clue what that means.

    Not I said the pig.

    No, his take is spot on. Yours isn’t.

    Good write up.
    Dak is the elephant in the stadium

    Hopefully we offer him a good 5+ year deal if he refuses tag and trade. Andy can hold the fort as we groom a young blue chipper. Honestly I'm fine either way.
    As for the rest of the team? Let's see who stands out over the last 7 weeks. Then make decisions.

    Big question? How good will Dalton look with this much talent, could be a real eye opener compared to Dak.
