Why don't the just pay him in Bitcoin. The blockchain can't possible count against the cap.

Um.

Dallas's problem isn't just Dak. And even by doing this, they're still in the red.

That's how the article seemed to read, yes.

Granted, Dallas isn't in New Orleans territory... but they have mouths to feed.

I'll be happy as long as Jerry Jones keeps wasting money and losing.

higuyz, what's going on in this thread?

If I was Dak, I'd be pissed.  Money he was supposed to get in 2022 he will now get in 2026?  I'm no math wizard but it seems like that's 4 years of growth that Dak is missing out on as well 4 years of depreciation due to inflation.  On a couple of million dollars that adds up.

puffy999: Um.

Yeah, they're $21 million over the cap. Dak'shiat (without the restructure) is $34 million. Not sure how much they can reduce that with the restructure. All the high-salary players who have smaller dead-money figures than cap hits in 2022 are precisely the guys they'll most want to keep -- DeMarcus Lawrence, Amari Cooper, Tyron Smith. So they'll have to restructure like half the roster to have a decent amount of cap room. Maybe it's worth it for one more shot at a Super Bowl, but eventually that will catch up with them, despite the dismissive tone of TFA.

Let's see, their list of free agents includes... oh my. Keanu Neal, Leighton Vander Esch, Cedrick Wilson, Connor Williams, Bryan Anger, Randy Gregory, Michael Gallup, Dalton Schultz.

Fortunately (?) for them, their 2019 draft class was meh, so there's nobody they have to worry about giving the traditional third-year extension.

No, it's just an accounting entry. Won't affect Dak's life one bit.

In Los Angeles if you see ANYONE with cowboys gear you can know they did time.

Why the hell does Dak want to stay in Dallas? He is good enough where he can go to a better team than the Cowboys. I know he can't ask for a trade now, unless he goes the Watson route minus the sex scandals.
 
2022-01-31 3:26:52 PM  
why didn't they just structure the deal this way in the first place?

They wanted flexibility to do this when it benefits them most and they did structure the deal this way that is why it takes a simple check of a box to make it happen, no negotiation, no change in when or what the player gets paid.

yes but they signed the deal last year.  They couldn't see that they were in cap trouble a year out?

If they won a Superbowl this year, then they could outright let people go since they would have a year or two grace period with the fans. They could also then say that couldn't afford all the people let go without too much blowback.

They'd be hit with so much dead money /cap hits that doing that it would cripple them for years.  Not that you'd be able to tell but still.

It's almost like one was drafted #1 overall and the other in the middle of the 3rd round.

Amounts paid are the same. Payments scheduled are the same. It's just structured differently on the Dallas side.  Or so I am to understand

The Burrow pick is a failure if he doesn't win a Super Bowl, Dak has already out preformed his draft position.

Correct. Salary and roster bonus are being converted to signing bonus. He gets the money up front and the Cowboys count it against the cap divided among the remaining years in his contract.

You know who else got picked at 135?

135. Josh Sitton, G, Central Florida
2008 Draft, Round 4 - Green Bay Packers
Sitton made the Pro Bowl four times and won a Super Bowl in his career with the Packers, Chicago Bears, and Miami Dolphins.

That's a fancy way to move the goal posts. Bravo.

Joe Burrow didn't have to deal with a football that's 0.7 psi below league minimums. 
Better put an asterisk on the banner.

I'm just adding context to your meme. #1 overall picks are supposed to do what Burrow has done. Also he's been in the league a lot longer than 15 days and was pretty terrible as a rookie, while Prescott started all 16 games and led his team to the playoffs.
