    Like I said, we’ll see when the time comes. I think two of the top three receivers are gone. You can feel free to disagree with me.

    Dropping both Cooper and Gallup is an option opened up by drafting Lamb, but unless Cooper has serious injury problems and can't produce, I don't see it happening.

    Cooper makes the offense go. The cap is ballooning. They can restructure and push his money into the future. He only has 6mil of dead cap overhang going into 2022.

    That’s been the case long before they paid Dak.

    And as I’ve said numerous times, they’re $20 million over next year’s cap and have to find a way to get under it. Getting out from Cooper’s deal is one of their few, best options.

    but i did prove it. I used real life examples of how Cooper changed the dynamic of this team and you are too worried about how i worded what i said with no real thought behind why you disagree.

    Let's be real here. The poor teams don't care if they lose as long as they are making money.

    These owners put money before winning a Super Bowl.

    I agree with the owners are only in it for the money.
    Its coming though. And the players are driving it by leaving teams for teams that will/can pay what they want.

    Cool. It will be an interesting subject to revisit after the season.

    I can see both Gallup and Cooper gone. Gallup's price is going to be inflated in free agency and Cooper is going to be a cap casualty.

    The Cowboys won't be able to afford either, particularly since I suspect a huge contract for Lamb a few seasons from now. They will most likely be replaced by draft picks from this season and next. The Cowboys have to get their talent cheap and will rely on the draft to replace expensive players.

    Unless the player is a young elite All Pro, the Cowboys will stay away from any more huge contracts.

    And Fehoko is bigger faster, plays his role, and more, with better hands.

    Besides Dak, Cooper is our most valuable skill player. Top 5 player on the team. Getting rid of our best players is not a great option.

    Better option. Dump Jaylon for a 9.2mil saving on his salary next year.

    Best thing would be that Lamb becomes the #1 receiver. I think he has the most talent, but we all know that that doesn't mean he'll be the best player.
    Between Cooper and Gallup, I say Gallup is better suited for the #2 spot, but not because Gallup is the better player. I just think Cooper would throw a hissy-fit if he was perceived as anything lower than the 1 spot, and may become trouble in the locker room.

    It’s not either/or, it’s both.

    Gallup's value will be the same situation as Golladay's, it's all about what else is available in FA that sets the price most of the time.
