Default Dallas is heading to Cap hell.

If this is true the cowboys are going to be in trouble for a long long time!

I've heard of this cap hell but I don't know I have ever seen great evidence of it. I do remember a team or two losing a draft or two but that's about it.
The article made small mention of the thing that I think is most overlooked. If I was Dak I would be happy to take the tenth highest contract, for example, if I got the 4th or 5th most guaranteed money. People (reporters) that concentrate on the average annual salary or the total contract value miss the key point that it is the guaranteed money that makes the cake taste good

Dak turned down $30 million a year ? If true, WOW.

Thank you Carson for only taking $25.7 a year.

Tom Brady gets it when it comes to his contract. Other QB's would be smart to follow his example.

I didn't think that Dak was the Greedy type but man was I wrong! He might be the first QB that a franchise might just let walk. He's nothing without Ewok. Of course I never thought that Brees was a greedy bastard either until he held out for an enormous contract that set the franchise back 5 years because he couldn't get by on the franchise tag of $20million 6 years ago. So much for the pictures of what a great family man and other BS that the media was putting out there about him. Same for Flacco after the Ravens won. I guess that JJ doesn't know how to cook the books like Howie does.

Brady “getting it” is also Kraft making contributions to his TB12 organization.

Deon was laughing with some other hosts on the NFL Channel about "property deals" when contracts were discussed on the show last season. There's always a way, especially with a mobster as your boss like DeBartolo.

So let me get this straight on what might happen:

Dak - 5 years/30 million per
Zek - 4 years/12 million per
Cooper - 4 years/12 million per

So 40% of your cap on three guys. And you still have to fit in a couple of those young stud LBs, plus your offensive line that you think is the best in the league.

This is why you don't deal first round picks for WRs.

AW it is worse than that. Cooper is getting $14 million this year so there is no way he takes less next year. And Dak wants MORE than $30 million per year already offered.

One would only think that he rejected the offer because he doesn't want to play in Dallas.

I've never bought into Prescott as the solid, grounded team guy and perfect but modest son. I must stipulate that I'm just a bit biased against anyone who plays for Jerry and America's Scum. Prescott strikes me as being much too full of himself and his "leadership qualities" for what he has actually accomplished.

And if he really has turned down a solid offer of $30 mil annually, than he's an even bigger asshole than I thought. We'll likely never learn how much of that $30 is guaranteed and for how many years...unless he relents and agrees to the offer.

He can always fall back on his natural skills as a dramatic actor and make millions as a 'leading man' in Bollywood if the gig in Dallas proves too small for his ego.

In any case, FUCK HIM!
