You might be right about getting franchised. He’ll earn the average of the top 5 QB’s this year and if he has good (not great) season then they will sign him long term. If they do that, then he’s definitely getting $40 mil (if not more) once he does sign.You've been saying this for a while now and it hasn't happened. And it won't happen this year. Dak will get franchised and have to earn Mahomes and top QB money by leading his team to the playoffs.
And the reason Dak is even remotely in this discussion is because the team had to trade a first round pick for a WR because Dak can't make anyone better. We've already spent massive resources to help Dak succeed because he's proven he can't win without a Pro-Bowlers all over the offense. I'd have rather used that #1 we spent on Cooper and used it as collateral to trade up/down and maneuver in the draft for a QB we identified.
I’m honestly kind of surprised you guys don’t see it. The writing is all over the wall. If they had plans to not go with Dak they would have drafted someone else by now. I don’t see them turning to free agency to bring in a FA QB. I mean, who would you go with? Dalton? Mariota? Jamis? Dalton maybe but overall Dak is better than those guys.
I still think this is all about both sides waiting in the new cap number. They’re expecting it to be much higher because of the gambling money. If the cap goes up considerably Dak is going to get $40 mil. If it doesn’t he’ll get franchises and get his $40+ next year.
