    Make the announcement, "We're keeping all our options on the table."

    I'd tag him and give him a year under McCarthy, then based on how he does either pay him or not.

    If McCarthy actually pushes him into all-pro/Super Bowl contender territory, who cares if he's expensive? If he doesn't pan out let McCarthy pick his man in 2021.

    e: I'm morbidly impressed that the unproven $40m demand rumor just won't go away.

    The problem from what I understand is Dak doesn't want a very long term contract like Zeke got. He wants more of the 3 year type so he can get another big contract when everything goes up. The 40 million that came up is what he wants if he signs the 7 year deal but would take around 35 +/- if he signed the 3 year. I don't believe Dak wants 40 million for 3 years though.

    I don't have a link to the article as I read it months ago but it seems legit. I could, however, be completely wrong.

    Reports are if he is tagged he will hold out of offseason workouts. With a completely new coaching staff that would be terrible

    How do you have every option under the sun, even sown options that make absolutely zero sense, yet, trading dak isn't a choice?

    Tag and trade gets my vote

    ^^This. What to do depends totally on how much Dak can be signed for.

    I'm no fan of Cousins, but he did lead the Vikes to the playoffs and played well down the stretch. Why would they have been stuck with him for 10 years, they might not be well run, but not even they would sign a 10 year contract. Haskins hasn't proved he will be the guy and if he isn't it might well be 10 years before the Redskins be considered contenders.

    Transition tag him. See what his actual market is. Then decide if we can let him go or match the offer. We could sign a veteran that won't require 27 million a year and draft a guy to groom behind him for the next year.

    Get him on a long term deal and move onto Cooper and building out the rest of the squad

    Getting rid for me puts the team back at least 2 years as a new QB will take time to settle and have a team built around them

    Franchising delays the inevitable - it’s already cost them at least 5mill a year by not getting the deal done last off season. Can’t see anything other than him signing for an even greater amount eventually if he’s franchised

    Too many pieces in place for me to even consider moving on from Dak plus he’s coming off a hell of a year stat wise and just keeps getting better and better

    Sign him ASAP.

    He may not be the second coming of Joe Montana, but he can win. Get er done, Jerruh.

    Other: Big Mike is going to want to work with Dak to see How it goes. You just can't push MM to be married to Dak. Franchise him and work on the "D" side of the ball. If a QB falls in the right spot then take a flyer. Dak is good..."Special" is not a term I would use. keep looking.

    Why do people keep saying this as if Dak has no choice?

    He didn't show any signs of being in a hurry to get a deal done whether the Cowboys wanted to or not. He bet on himself, expecting the price to rise.

    Reports I heard today are Dak is seeking $36 million annually. If that's true I'm not doing an extension.

    Frankly, I'm not signing any QB to that type of extension unless he's got the look of a future Hall of Famer. Paying a good QB like he's great, just because he's the best one you have, isn't going to make that QB better. It's just going to weaken his supporting cast, which will actually make your team worse.

    I would transition tag him and check the wind before FA and the draft. If I got the feeling he was going to be a no show, I get a FA QB, draft a QB in the 1st, possibly trade up for Tua and rescind the tag after the draft. Tua is a lefty, so was Moore, I like that.

    I tell my new HC that the plan has changed and he gets to bring Tua along slowly, do what he can with the FA QB and I immediately add a year to his contract giving him a 6 year deal. The circumstances changed after his hiring and I'd want him to feel good about the change. In fact, he might be more in favor of the change than the GM.

    And think of the merch possibilities for Booger. On opening day 2021, Tua can put lei's on all the women entering the stadium and Booger can sell t-shirts that read "I got Leid by Tua". The concessions can sell Cowpoi. And best of all, Rowdy can do a torch dance at halftime and maybe set himself on fire.
