Since there are countless threads on the topic, I thought an official poll might be in order.

What do you think the Cowboys should offer Dak?
Give Dak a juice bar at the stadium as an incentive. Money talks, govnor. Right you are.

2 reports have it around 35m and 110m GTD. Fish reported the offer on the table is 35m and north of 106m GTD. Clarence Hill reported from Dak camp it was north of 34m but not 35m and it matched the 110m GTD Goff got. Both said it was the years. SO that says Dak is fine with it on a 4yr deal, but Cowboys want that on a 5yr deal. So my 115m GTD isnt even necessary.

If the both are right, then the Cowboys should have done gave him the 4yr deal. 35m is market, yes it is market, and the 110 GTD is actually under market. In this years cap, Goffs contract would be 140m(35m) and 115m GTD. On a 5yr deal the GTD would have to be at least ~125m and that is probably a low number and probably closer to 130m GTD. If they want that extra year of player control at a cost efficient price, they are going to have to pay for it.
Good answer, if your info is correct.
if true it means neither side wants to give in on the years.
however like I said if jones said ok 4 years !!!!! dak still might decline if he want to play on tag and then negotiate next off season and get more if he does good

I'm trending toward Tag and Trade if they can't get a long term contract they're happy with this year. I think he's aiming at the Kirk Cousins career path.

We get the most value out of signing Dalton to such an under market contract by starting him. Trade Dak.

Trade value for Dak plus 30mil of extra cash could improve the team this year a lot. I'm thinking significantly more than Dak is better than Dalton.
I agree, and I had not thought about wasting daltons 1 year cheap deal. Smart thing is to do as you say, so that means
jones boys will do the opposite!!!!!!!!.

30-34 sounds about right to me but he may get more and if so, more power to him.

I had to decide between the 25mil/year option and the Tag.

In the end i am against giving Prescott a longterm contract regarless of the money (unless its backup money in the range of 3-4 mil/year).

2 reasons

1. I dont think we are able to win a SB with Dak.
2. I dont like his character anymore.

Option 2 and Option 4. I believe the offer is already 34/35 (not exactly sure) but on a 5 year deal. If he doesn't accept, then play him on the tag and eventually work out a deal or a trade and move on. I'm not in favor of paying him a harmful percentage of cap. I've seen that movie and I never really liked it.

I been saying for awhile to let him play on the tag. It is a win win in a way. He proves himself worth a larger contract or he doesn't.
However, if he signs a deal for the $30 to $34 million range, I will have no issue with that either.

I was thinking of voting for that $30 to $34 million range, only because it gets the QB saga out of the way. So we don't have to go through this again next year if he plays well. Or we have to go through the process of finding another QB if he doesn't. Dalton would be a FA, so would he want more $$$ knowing he would sign again and be the starter, until a rookie is ready.

The problem here is that your second and third options (offer Dak something he'll never accept) are the same as your fourth and fifth options. If they plan to lowball him, they either intend to have him play on the tag or exit as a free agent.

An offer of 35 AAV with 110 guaranteed is not a low ball offer. In fact, it's more then he's worth IMO but never the less, it is the offer on the table. That's a great offer for any player. It amazes me that an offer like that is viewed as "Low Ball". It's amazing to me.

Hmm. I'm the only one here who used the word lowball, and I was specifically NOT referring to the first item in the poll ($35M AAV). Who thinks $35M AAV is a lowball?
