    I was pretty close with my estimate earlier......here is the unofficial breakdown

    7/93.34m.................... 40m gtd for injury ................20m signing bonus


    Year...........Base..........Prorate.............Cap Hit................Dead Money
    2018...........2m................4m..................6m........................40m
    2019...........1m*...............6m..................7m........................36m...........(restructured-was 10m)*
    2020...........11m*.............6m..................17m......................31m.......... only 8m gtd at start......rest gtd 5/19
    2021...........11m...............6m..................17m......................14m
    2022...........11.841m........6m................17.841m..................8m
    2023...........13.5m............2m.................15.5m.....................2m
    2024...........13m*.....................................14m........................................+1m roster bonus due 5/24

    2019-2024 if he misses workouts it is -500k

    Cash flow is 22m the first year, 32m thru year two and 43m thru year 3
    After 2020 he has no guaranteed money left and it is basically 4 Team Options

    Come 2020, we are gonna restructure this (barring a career threatening injury). That guaranteed 11 mill is there to leverage that. Note that such a move might jam about 4 mill of prorate into those last two years where there is no prorate.

    I want all of you cap chicken littles to save this post and not start freaking out about us "having to" restructure deals to get under the cap. We design deals for exactly that reason.

    Also, those cap numbers look pretty big for 2020 onward. But realistically, he isn't hitting the cap at that rate until 2021.

    Amen

    I assumed the 2019 restructure as automatic but you are correct in counting on 2020 as well since the 11m will be already guaranteed

    Hopefully, Dak will be signed by the time Martin's serious cap hit kicks in. However, This could seriously be an issue when Zeke comes up for his new deal.

    Which is when Dak's potential new deal would kick in.

    I guarantee we have enough for ZMartin, DLaw, Dak and Zeke

    Decisions will be on Irving, Lee, BJones and LCollins

    But we will also lose TCrawford, TWill and AHurns

    Pushing cap hit into future years to minimize Net Present Cap and increase cap available now. Giving big bonuses to maximize value to the player.

    But they're not going crazy with pushing money into the future either. That's one worry I had. They back loaded the last two seasons a little, probably meaning that they don't really plan to do those.

    It would be interesting to see the numbers denominated in % of yearly cap.

    You have to pay someone

    The cap will be over 200m by then and Dak is the only other huge contract unless we extend DLaw

    We have never been in this situation before

    It is unprecedented that we have 100m in cap space and 30 player under rookie deals

    I can almost see the Salary Cap being eliminated in the next CBA

    Teams have left a combined 535m on the shelf this year and that will rollover or wasted to hide the surplus

    I think they're trying to move on from DLaw, and there's a good chance of it. We're going heavy at DE this year to give us as many options as we can.

    Zeke, probably franchised for a year and then let go.
    Collins will be interesting. They weren't willing to pay Leary, and they'll have an option with Williams.

    Lee will be 33 with replacements - 2 of them, waiting in the wings. And those guys will need to be paid. He can make more elsewhere. He'll have to take a hometown discount. I hope he does.

    Crawford has been a guy who was the best of poor options, playing out of position since we went to 4-3. I think we've got alternatives now. I wouldn't be shocked to see him cut this year, particularly with his trimming down for DE and the glut of potential at DE. Next year, very likely, though moving from DLaw might leave us still wanting some quality veteran depth. Or a starter.

    With Hurns and Williams, it's more a question of whether we want to keep them than losing them.
    Beasley is the more interesting question here.

    You may be right, hard to say. I just have a feeling that Zeke is going to be very, very expensive.

    If we go year to year with Zeke it will be manageable

    2020- 5th year option 10m
    2021- Franchise Tag 12m
    2022- Franchise Tag 14.4m

    That is 3/36.4m

    If we offer 4/44m after 2019 with 22m gtd we might get a deal

    After a pattern of irresponsible contracts, it's a big relief that the Cowboys have finally come up with plan and are sticking with it. The structure of this deal is in line with the new Cowboy way of doing business. The salary cap space in future years is something I'm sure much of Cowboy Nation never ever thought possible.

    How did you come up with these numbers? His signing bonus is 20m that can only be spread out over 5 years or 4m per season.
    His approx cap hits right now are:

    2018: 6m
    2019: 14m
    2020: 15m
    2021: 15M
    2022: 15.8m
    2023: 13.5m
    2024: 14m

    You are assuming a restructure that hasn't happenned yet
