    I would still put the Non exclusive tag on Dak.
    So what if Dak doesnt agree to an interested team.
    The worst thing that can happen if he does , we get to unload Dak and his contract and receive two 1sts.
    The worst thing that can happen for France and Dak is that nobody is ringing the door bell wanting to be first in line.
    The NET is a win win for the Cowboys either way you look at it,, talk about a change in leverage when nobody in this league wants to pay that price tag.
    We have already seen the movement away from it with teams like Rams, Eagles..even eating major dead cap just to do it.
    Non Exclusive Tag is a punch to Todd France chin, might just change the landscape of all future franchise QB deals, or at least put a cherry on it.

    Isn't that true? Wasn't it true of Romo? Being the DC QB brings some heavy coverage with it but this has been egregious even by the old standards.

    Old women are gathering around the Mahjong table and the first question is "Dak get his deal done yet"?

    "Mr. Reynolds, Nurse Harris here. Were you able to have a bowel movement this morning"? "Goshdernit, I dun tolt ya, not until Dak gets his deal done".

    "Is there anyone that knows why this man and woman should not be joined in holy matrimony? If so, speak now or forever hold your peace". Entire congregation in unison "NO! Not until Dak gets his deal done"!!!

    I'm a Prescott contract hater.

    You're too much of a cheerleader to have real discussions with.. It's understandable because of the environment we post on. There will be people like yourself that can't handle a realistic perspective of what Dak is and his impact on the team.

    I've always said Dak is a good player and a great leader.

    My problem is the contract and then that's when I have the capability to set aside being a fan and say this doesn't add up.

    It's fine.. I understand that there is people that will always view me as a Dak hater because I don't ignore his terrible value.

    lol oh it's true..

    I just hope you're ready to receive the criticism that I do for opinions like this lol. You gotta remember that there are a lot of super fans on here that can't realistically look at things objectively and they get super upset and call you a hater or other names when you do.

    Bold. One of the best statements made in a long line of statements on this subject.

    That's OK. I like Prescott, I just don't think he's worth that much cap space but then I don't think on this team even Mahomes or Rodgers would be.

    But I also agree with those that think it doesn't matter. When the team has a poor builder, nothing really matters much after that. It's not money that prevents them from building a team, it is the lack of talent to recognize and price talent.

    We all know what should be done. Get with the thread topic here, we are talking about this self-imposed deadline and how the Cowboys could very well not have anything to show for this at the end of the day. The FO incompetence could once again screw this up. Their priority should be making the long-term deal happen but they don't seem capable of doing that. They seem to think the next best thing to do is forcing the exclusive tag on Dak so they have him one more year. We never see the FO suggest the non-exclusive tag as a viable option.

    I guess i'm such a big fan that I really can't even give up on Jerry the builder if there is still a answer to win a title and I view not doing this deal as re-opening our window like it's been since 2016. I just think that when Dak signs a deal that time is our only answer to overcoming his deal.

    So right now I am hopeful but if he does this 3 or 4 year 40 millionish a year deal then we can forget about it and we will just be the fighting Dak's. He'll be great for your fantasy teams.

    Or they all go to him and tell him what he gets in a year and he knows he can dig in even more because he has 41-42m waiting in the wings if he just plays one year on 37m.

    Thats the price you give up easily as a franchise when your franchise LT agrees to the "TERM".
    Everybody just looks at the principle, but the term is everything when you give your franchise the ability to borrow from it.

    The team should be approaching the draft as if Dak will NOT be part of the Cowboys plans. They should be strategizing both ways ALREADY. I have said this in another thread.....the hard deadline for Dak is draft day. That's the fork in the road. The team needs to let Dak know if he is not signed by that time they will be prioritizing a QB on draft day. It would be idiotic to fail to take a QB on draft day if Dak is not signed and an opportunity arises.

    The team does not need to panic. The team can get another Dak in the draft. They just need to choose wisely.

    The team could trade back in the first round and probably still draft the QB from Alabama later in the first round. I'm not saying that should be the play, but you could get a QB and still not reduce the number of picks available to you. Or use a comp pick to move up in the second round, is also an option, if that's where a guy is targeted.

    I disagree on the franchise tag. There are pros and cons to using the non-exclusive franchise tag. Let's suppose the Cowboys give Dak the non-exclusive tag, expecting to lose Dak for two first round picks, but no team signs Dak to a tender (that's plausible). Dak's bargaining power drops like a rock if that happens. At minimum it saves cap money on the one year tag. Of course the down side is you have to be willing to lose your QB.

    Reality is that if a team signs Dak UNDER THE SAME PARAMETERS THAT HE IS DEMANDING FROM THE COWBOYS they also have to give up TWO FIRST ROUND PICKS. The Cowboys are having a hard time deciding to pay Dak what he wants WITH ZERO draft pick compensation!!!!! Think about that. If the Cowboys are willing to part with Dak, they could also open up the bidding on Dak NOW.

    If Dak doesn't want to be a Cowboy the Cowboys will not be able to sign Dak at any price. That's also lost on some of you.

    Also from Dak's point of view, whatever he gains in APY on his contract is going to potentially be partially offset by a loss in endorsement revenue, except for a very few teams (Patriots, Giants, and a few others).

    They are not going to let Dak walk for a 3rd round comp pick. But you are right, that's the floor here. That's why you use the non-exclusive FT. You either get two firsts for Dak, or you hammer him hard on negotiating power. Either way is a win for the Cowboys. It is the smart play at this point. You want to avoid getting a 3rd round pick for him next year. The Cowboys still hold some cards here, and they need to play all of them before draft day.

    If you give him the non-exclusive FT, I think they save a significant amount of cap room.
