    Yes. Jerry will restructure Dak again in 2023. He has to, or else Dak is an almost 50M cap hit. Then in order to avoid another massive cap hit in 2024, another extension he will get.

    As an aside, I did not write that post you quoted.

    Good plan but will never happen with #4 under center.
    He will make sure we finish 8-9 or 7-10 to be out of any possible franchise QB pick-up.
    Lucky that Dak as he has the NFC East Garbage to guarantee the above!
    I can still see him jumping for joy at Giant stadium after a TD pass to Beasley having been eliminated the week before from the playoffs......

    Simple.

    They want to pay big money to QB and difference-making talent. This means you only pay 20million to a receiver that is a Randy Moss type difference maker. Personally I wouldn't pay the QB, but the Cowboys did and you have to pay outlandish amounts for QB so just put that one in your rearview mirror. But the other positions should only be paid premium if they are complete difference makers.

    Now on to the coaching. If you're going to go bargain on everything except QB, you need your coaching to be up to par and our OC was NOT up to par last year. Instead of a buddy buddy type coach like Kellen Moore, you need one that can bark and get Dak's attention. You also need to devise a plan around Dak's inabilities. If Dak doesn't show anything this year, you may have to outright cut him and eat his salary. We can't keep going around and round with this QB and coaching staff, we need results or get out.

    I am dubious of this report given contacts just given out.

    i wouldn’t be surprised if the truth is Stephen took less than what was available in order to send him to a certain dumpster fire QB situation in order to make himself look better.

    that guy is a clown

    That’s what happens when your job in the Front Office of a team is NEVER on the line. You get to keep on comin’ back and do it all over again! 25 years in a row….

    I don't believe it. Dallas is now the second franchise that has moved Cooper for reasons that are unclear, & the fact that the rest of the NFL wasn’t that excited to trade for the WR is very curious.
