BREAKING: Dak signs with Dallas (merge)


Recommended Posts

Shefter reporting $126m guaranteed.   Basically his first three years.  
 

Sounds like his 4th year, the numbers go down?   I’m not sure, just attempting to out the pieces of the puzzle together.   We'll know soon enough.

Wait so you are telling me that I can either have Dak at 40ish million a year or I can have Wentz + Big Q (contract extension) or Wentz + Allen Robinson (if he hits free agency) or Wentz + someone like Jonnu Smith + entire 2021 draft class of contracts for the same price. Hah, I'll take all those options except the Dak one.

Dak is one of the most overrated QB's in football. He good, not great. And for that money he'd better be better than great. He had great teams and he did nothing with them. Now he eats a huge chunk of the cap and Dallas will put less around him. Wish for those 9-7 years Dallas, that's about the top you can reach..

Well deserved

For Jerry Jones! Jones deserves to be this stupid, spending all this cap money on a 9-7 QB.  Dak is so overrated it's not funny. I would have used the franchise tag and tried to trade him. If Seattle was interested I'd trade him plus a #1 pick for Russell Wilson.

He's been to the playoffs in 3 of his 4 healthy seasons...

 

He was on his way to winning MVP and would've made it again in 2020 if not for a freak injury

 

Everybody wants a good QB until you have to pay them

The same thing has been said about every non top five QB that has signed an extension over the last ten years. This is the business.

That’s not entirely true. Matter of fact not true at all.

 

dak was drafted in 2016. That’s 5 seasons.  Dallas has MISSED the playoffs 3 out of the last 4 years. So how could he have been to the play offs 3 out of 4 years healthy?!?

 

 

hell Dallas since 2010 has only made the play offs 3 times total.....

Sorry, he's led them to a winning record in 3 of his 4 healthy seasons

I figured it would be around 4 years 152 million tbh. Shocked the gave him more than Deshaun Watson. 
 

And as an organization, giving $126 guaranteed is CRAZY given his recent injury. 
 

Happy for Dak. The dude has been through a lot.

Can somebody explain how the Cowboys can afford this crazy contract?

 

I read his cap hit will be $22.5m in 2021.

I'm confused how $75 million is paid the first year & only 22.5 million counts towards the cap. That seems impossible even with most of it being spread out over the contract, especially given that the 4th year has a lower cap hit too. 

 

Can anyone explain it to me better please?

He has a $66m signing bonus. The cap hit for the signing is prorated, split evenly over five years, so $13.2m/year. Then he has a $9m base salary in 2021. Add that to the $13.2m prorated bonus figure and it works out to a 2021 cap hit of $22.2m. 

 

Future cap hits: 2022, $33.2m; 2023, $44.2m; 2024, $47.2m; contract voids the day before the start of the 2025 league year, but there will be a dead cap hit of $13.2m in 2025. 

 

Disclaimer: I think there's at least one detail missing, because I don't understand why they added two voidable years, instead of just one. Maybe it's to leave room for a future restructure.

Yeah, but 9-7 wins this division going away!

    • Also, just because I'm starting to feel some kind of way about this, Mac Jones is getting short changed these days. He's a really good prospect, and people are treating him like he's an unathletic bum with no arm.   Blake Bortles went #3 in 2014. Sam Darnold went #3, and Josh Rosen went #10 in 2018. None of them were unable to succeed due to athletic shortcomings. Mac Jones tested just as good, if not better, than all of them. (Bortles was actually pretty good as a scrambler, despite his mediocre testing.) I already used the Jared Goff comparison; he went #1 in 2016, and went to the SB in 2018. Mac Jones tested as good as Goff.   He doesn't have super speed or quickness, but he's not stuck in mud. He moves well enough to stay alive in the pocket, and he has enough movement ability to scramble when needed. He doesn't have a cannon of an arm, but his arm is not deficient. He's very good from the pocket, he processes well, not a one-read thrower, very accurate, and tough.    If Bortles, Darnold and Goff could go top five in the last 7 years, so can Mac Jones. Of course, he needs to be better than them to live up to that draft status, but again, their issues weren't about lacking athleticism.    Just saying, again, the anti-Mac stuff is getting a little overboard. I like Fields and Lance better, but Mac Jones being desirable isn't entirely outrageous.
    • I am a little confused?  So you are advocating a less talented edge at 21 than more talented OT?  Or am I just reading this incorrectly?  Because I believe the difference in OT quality and Edge quality at 21 clearly favors the OT.
    • I actually like the idea of trading back into the top of the 2nd and at least getting a 3rd rd pick that would not be a compensatory pick.  IF we wanted to move Q to LT Meinerz would be an ideal choice to pull it off.  That said picking at the top of the 2nd could still have Eichenberg and Little still available to mention a few LT’s.  I would rather go that route still taking a LT then take WR or CB with our 2nd and we have a nice 3rd rd pick to boot.  Then we could move up higher in the 2nd if we want as well.
    • I think Schefter does a reasonably good job of presenting his opinions as just opinion, and he presents rumors and uncertain information accordingly as well. Lots of 'I think,' 'I'm hearing,' 'I've been told,' 'the feeling is,' etc...    Here, he said: "It will be Mac Jones." Came across different to me. Then he kind of couched it a few days later, making me think maybe there was room for things to change, he didn't mean for it to sound as definitive as it did, whatever.   I think there was plenty of room for things to change. The Justin Fields epilepsy news is one thing; whether teams knew about that before the last few days is unknown, but they know now. If the Niners were on the fence prior to having that information, that could push their decision in one direction or the other.   Also, it's very possible that they moved up knowing they'd have their pick of whatever three QBs are still there at #2. Maybe they already knew the Jets were going with Wilson, but either way, going up to #3 gave them the peace of mind to know that they could get whichever guy they like out of the Fields, Lance and Jones. Maybe they had a favorite already, but I doubt they had their minds made up one way or the other. They just knew they wanted a QB, and #3 was as high as they could get.
