It really depends on how Dak is viewed around the league and whether or not someone believes he's the kind of QB that can elevated the people around him.KC gave up a first and a second for a DE (Frank Clark). A young starting QB like Dak should bring at least that.
I actually like the concept behind your 3rd idea. Basically swapping out WRs and gaining cap space in the process. A bit risky, but I like the thought process.What if Jerry was able to get Tom Brady for a 2 year deal? What if Jerry traded Dak to Cincinnati for the #1 draft pick and cincy threw in an additional pick in rounds 2. Then you have options to pick up a QB on the rookie pay scale, or take Chase Young.
What if Jerry was able to sign and trade Amari Cooper to get into the 10-14 draft pick position and take Ceedee Lamb.
Asked and answered earlier. Nobody's going to pay the big contract to a 4th year guy when they can draft #1 and pay him on the cheap for four years. Nobody's that stupid, especially when it's a QB with no accomplishments, no skins on the wall.What if Jerry traded Dak to Cincinnati for the #1 draft pick and cincy threw in an additional pick in rounds 2.
We litigated this already too. Same problem as before. Nobody's gonna give up two 1st round picks for a 5th year QB they'll have to pay huge for. Especially if they're in position to pick in the top ten this year. Nobody's that stupid.Cowboys could use the non-exclusive franchise tag on Dak which would allow every NFL team to negotiate with Dak and then give the Cowboys the right to match any offer sheets or receive 2 first round picks for Dak should the Cowboys decide to not match the offer sheet.
They fall in love with certain players. Jerry's already compared Dak to his son Stephen, saying there's no way forward without him. They're not businesslike when it comes to their pets. We've seen this before with several players.Giving Dak 35+ million per season for what he provides is money going down the toilet. Getting rid of Dak is best for the team. Trading him for a high first round pick or using the non-exclusive franchise tag is the smart thing to do.
Actually no, it's not. His business model insulates the company completely, from results on the field. He makes his money from ad revenue and managing the events at the stadium. Stadium owned by the city of Arlington, the Cowboys only lease it and operate it, keeping all concession, parking, branding (AT&T and others), and gate reciepts for all events hosted. Cowboys swag is a revenue stream that keeps pumping regardless. The team itself barely makes a profit. Everything else is the profit.That's where his money is coming from
