Even though I should be used to this it's really frustrating to see the lack of effort to improving this team in the offseason.
Here we have a superstar player, the kind of skill position upgrade this QB needs, practically begging for the Cowboys to come get him.
The money? He'll work with you. He isn't looking to get paid.
The reported price? A 2nd round pick. To add one of the top receiving weapons in the game.
Too much? We have to hold onto those draft picks? Especially one that high? Let's take a look at what the Cowboys have done with their 2nd round picks over the last 15 years. Even with the great and almighty Will McClay.
Is there a player on that list better than Hopkins? I guess you could argue Lee, Lawrence and Diggs (I think he's better than all of them) but the fact is their usual return on a 2nd round investment pales in comparison to the instant impact Hopkins would provide in a supposed all in season.
He would make the QB better. Isn't that the most important objective this offseason so we don't have a 49ers part 3?
How could they possibly, even these colossal idiots, not be interested in this? Why am I reading a report like this from a legit team source?
It's an insult to the fans. It's why my blood boils every time we re-sign an old member of the band. Here's an actual real upgrade that can win you those playoff games, someone who can potentially change things and break this cycle of losing and we make no effort to make it happen. We're busy looking for bargains, not serious about winning.
But I guess this is what happens when you have a front office that chooses Leighton Vander Esch over Bobby Wagner.
Meet the new season. Same as the last season.
