    Daks contract thread (take the franchise tag then leave)

    I dont think Dak is factually worth being the top paid QB in the league but thats how the system is set up. Nobody but Brady is taking discounts if they are better, equal to or worse than Dak (Goff and Wince). Yet again these guys dont have their spouse being the bread winner of the relationship.

    Daks being treated like **** for showing up, doing his job, not *****ing and being told to take less for everyone else. They gave the guy who is factually making more money on the field already,even more money because he held out. But you wont pay the guy that had your back over the anthem controversy, didnt ***** when you depleated his WR core last year, and has not threatened once to sit out this year, being his contract year while making peanuts on your watch/bill.

    If I'm Dak. I'm staying professional, showing up for work, having my teammates and franchises back for the next two years then leaving and ******** on the whole thing when the money comes from someone else. If no deal is done by the end of the year. Theres a simple number here and Dallas refuses to get to it, while you have rewarded two players contracts because they threw a fit and held out. One guy hasnt been seen this year and the other one isnt a position you invest money in.

    You cant sign everyone now because you gave a pass rusher top money (as you should given the position though Im not on that train) who so far has been a bust the first 7 games of his new deal, and a RB already being paid who has off field issues even more money and now youre broke or will be? Tough ****, thats a you issue not a Dak issue.

    Then lastly you still havent paid the man who hasnt been a cancer or a me first guy in anyway and dangle a 1st and a 4th for Adams who you are going to have to pay top money too while again not taking care of your in house guys first?

    The irony of all of this is that Jerry is the one that led the way for a salary cap yet hes only won with no cap and it being the wild wild west where he can buy anyone. Hes still trying to buy all the "stars" while having no idea how to use the cap space for the system he wanted.

    I'm to the point where I'm certain this team is never going to win again with the Jones' running this thing. I want to be wrong but I no longer can keep this delusional faith.

    Theyíre both posturing right now. Dak is playing because heís a professional and he knows heís going to get paid one way or another. Also both his team and the Jonesí are expecting a big jump in the cap after the new CBA is done because they will factoring in the gambling money. I think if Dak really would take $30-$32 mil a season then Jerry would sign him today. Thatís going to be considered cheap once the new cap kicks in. At least thatís what Jerry and Stephen are likely thinking.

    As Dak screams up the charts of QB performance it is getting harder and harder to act like he is not worth it. Once we check our old man football perspective at the door and admit a top 1/3 of league passer (Dak!!) is more effective than a top 1/3 of league RB (Zeke) we must admit that Dak is due his top contract. He is next man up from a QB pay perspective. What choice do you have? Start over?

    I'm a Cowboy fan and it is embarrassing how Jerry and Stephen is treating Dak. If it was up to me I would tell Dak not to sign the the Tag and just holdout the entire season or release me. They feel they got their QB in Andy Dandy so just release him then sign with the Giants or Redskins.

    Dak isn't worth $40 million. I'd trade Dak for 1st and 3rd and let someone else have to deal with him, we only have a 4th invested in him (great turn around). He is a QB of a system like Aikman was. He can win us a Superbowl with the right casting members but if he gets paid $40 million + a year, those other positions are not going to get paid. Dak also has to remember that being the QB of the Dallas Cowboys also leads to lots of endorsement and TV dealers which will make up for not making $40 million a year. The Jones are doing the right thing and sticking to their guns as far as a contract they are offering. It's more than fair for a QB that hasn't won anything. Dalton is a great signing if Dak decides to hold out and will be fine in this system. Remember if Dak doesn't sign and holds out, he will still be able to tagged next year and the following year. Also, if he does sign Dallas can tag him again next year at a cost of around $38 million a year.

    What is the real number being offered and what is the real number being turned down? It feels like figures are floated, but no one in the public really knows the real number. Only Mahomes is really worth 40 plus million....and he was actually available in 2017...just teams decided to stand pat, including the Cowboys. To be fair, I don't think Wentz or Goff are worth what they got, but the system seems to be set up where the Quarterback is making way more than the linebackers, corners and running backs. You almost have to win with a QB on a rookie contract. But, of course the owners decided on the hard cap....they could change the system if they wanted to, but they want to pocket the money. If this doesn't get resolved, just tag and dip back into the draft. I think Dak can really ball out this year with the 3 stud wide receivers, a pretty athletic tight end and even Zeke behind one of the best lines. But if neither side is happy then just move on.

    Maybe he is worth $20M there but really just needs to get over the playoff hump. And really wonder if it not him but just his agents playing that of hardball there. To get him the deal. He has a W.R. in Cooper and Zeke behind him. But still need to keep him.

    Other than pushing for the deal, he's saying and doing the right things. Even that social distancing thing, he addressed it right away. I would like to see how this offense plays together under McCarthy with these weapons to get a gauge on how effective he is. He improved his stats last year, but we lost against almost every playoff team in the regular season.

    So Dak wants $45 million the final year the final year if he signs a 5 year contract. Sorry but time for him to go! He is not worth $45 million yet alone $35 million a year. Let him play on his tag or sit, we control him for 2 or 3 more years depending on how things play out. Dalton would put up great numbers in this system plus go get Rosen from Miami. Most QB's would line up to come play in Dallas with this offense and not want stupid money.
