how good does LVE have to play to warrant an extension ?

plays in every game ?
team leader in tackles ?
pro bowl ?
all pro ?
injury history shouldn't warrant an extension ?

Stay healthy and play similar to 2018, he'll get a new deal.

Play ok but be hurt a lot, might get a 1yr deal.

Otherwise gone.

Career record in starts, 1-8. 13 tds and 8 ints. Has been sacked quite a bit and is a career less than 60% passer (albeit on some bad teams)

Big guy though at 6'4, 235, played at Florida but played his last season at Louisian Tech and had a big yr, 6th rd pick of Niners in 2016. Has played for SF, Cinci, Detroit and Denver.

Some might remember he started for Detroit against us in 2019 and had a pretty good day passing and running.

I like Gilbert better as a back-up.

To be honest, I really could care less who we have at backup QB. If Dak goes down again we will have a top ten pick next year. Unless he goes down at the end of the season. Either way, when he goes down our season is over no matter who we have at back up. There aren’t any decent back ups out there right now that would be able to step in and carry the team.

This is odd. We're waiving a starter without having seen any of the rookies practice/play at the NFL level. Is it telling of just how bad our players are/were that we waive them for relative unknown 2nd day picks?
Far too expensive to keep vs. how little he produced.

You're being far too optimistic Scott. We may have a top 10 pick with a healthy Dak.

2.1 million is too rich for your blood for a starting DT? He played well enough to get a contract with Dallas. This team is a shit show.
Starting DT in THE most porus run D in team history. Starting DT who wasn't productive or effective. Only one of many who need to be shit canned. It's no loss.

i like minshew as a backup qb if DAL were able to trade for him

it would be a disaster if dak goes on IR again or if his ankle is a lingering issue.. which for this team usually means its going to happen

Don't get me wrong. I'm not defending Antwan Woods or the D. It's comical to me that we gave this guy a contract and now feel 2.1 million too rich for a starting DT. It says more about our ability to identify and draft talent.

Dbair and I went back and forth about our talent level and drafts some time ago. It's atrocious, IMO. 2.1 million is peanuts for a starting DT in the NFL. The fact you don't want to pay it AND the player was a starter says more about the front office and talent evaluators.

Maybe somebody (Quinn perhaps) is looking at the D roster with a more trained eye and so therefore six of the 13 players who started and/or played more than 40% of our defensive snaps in 2020 have retired or are no longer with the team. A major purge was needed, we've all agreed on that for at least three years.
