    Some debates about players reminded me of last year's debate about David Irving "only" getting a 2nd round tender.

    Some were up in arms that the Cowboys might lose him and "only" get a 2nd round pick in return.

    Think he'll give his former teammates a friends and family discount on his new products?

    Well in hindsight they should have not made a tender, and let him sign elsewhere.
    At least we may have got comp pick.

    You don't get a comp pick in that situation.

    I was hoping someone would get him and we'd get the second round pick. would jimmy, parcells or belichik have put up with his bs? jerry's last act concerning a player. well, maybe randy Gregory who seems to be jerry's pet cat. but I get the feeling it's about time to move on from him too.

    Pretty sure @jazzcat22 meant..

    By placing the 2nd Rd tender on the ‘Dumbell’ better known as David Irving.. had another team came in and offered Irving a contract and signed him.. Dallas would have received a 2nd rd pick this year from the team that signed him. Hence the “2nd Rd tender” designation.

    It’s a way to secure the rights of a restricted FA. Much like Dallas will do next year with Jaylon Smith. Yet I assume, Jaylon will receive a 1st Rd tender I’m sure.

    That was wrong choice with the knowledge we had at the time

    He was our starting 3T and the missing link to a top Defense

    Losing him over saving 1.2 would have been stupid

    Think we can all admit that Irving had 1st rd talent. The FO knew he was a troubled player and we don’t know what promises Irving was given the team. Had Dallas known he was the type of idiot that would video his “retirement” via Twitter smoking weed.. I’m sure they would have placed a 3rd or 4th on him in hopes another team would take him. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. I’ll admit, I was ok with the 2nd rd tender last year. But I’ll also admit I never though anyone could be this dumb.

    Nobody and nobody was going to. I can see maybe a 3rd.

    Apparently the league thought it was too high. In this case, the word "it" may refer to the pick or the player.... either one.

    Which was the argument that was ignored by most. Whether it worked out in hindsight or not, the cost was only an additional $1.2 million. Did we use that $1.2 million last year, no. Are we gonna use that $1.2 million this year since it rolls over, no. With the information that was available to the public, we could have gave him the first round tender, and then still dealt him for a 2nd. Hell, we could have dealt him for a conditional 6th rounder, despite his original tender.

    Nah I was spot on. I was hoping and praying a team would give us a 2nd rounder for him. Shoot I woulda taken a 3rd. I knew the kid was a disaster. You can't trust a man with blond streaks in his hair

    I recall the prior concern of which you speak of xwalker,though I don't recall participating in the fervor much, other than being glad in seeing the overt action by the franchise in it's attempted retention of the ripped nipple x#95o_O

    Way late, but no he was saying with hindsight we shouldn't have tendered him. There is no comp pick when the team refuses to tender the player.

    Why? If marijuana is allowed under the new agreement and the clapper is gone as HC. It could be a possibility.

    I was hoping someone would pick him up for that 2nd rounder.
