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.....

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!

    • I like Tomlin's personality a lot. And you can't argue with his record.   Purely my opinion, but I don't see you guys going far in the playoffs again until you guys get a new QB. Maybe things fall into place over the next 2 years, but I just think BB is holding yall back. I love your skill players. 
    • I wasn't really sold on Tomlin at first. I hated the tampa 2. Hated it especially against brady. So to tie all this in. They way you beat Brady is one of two ways. Lock down corner, or take his * down. Well we didnt have none of that because Belichick had the best offensive line in football for a while there. I mean... I hate to drop this here but... also the tuck rule. Not that I have any particular love for oakland but sad to see the A's window shopping.   Anyway they regulated that style of football out of existence. Pay ur bigs up front, score points, dont overpay for a QB. Thats how the NFL works now. If Fisher comes back and is solid, screw it pay em all.
    • I've read several things on the topic, a lot which was mostly rumor and hypothesis.    My uneducated gut feel is.... MW kid goes to East Coast, to a team with fans who have a certain rep. Maybe a little culture shock Had early success, but maybe felt a little disrespected or uneasy in the whole Foles situation. The roster was up and down post 2017 for various reasons He got really frustrated given the injury and personnel issues last year Fans and team mates got frustrated Perfect storm/blend of everyone unhappy   Overall, I think Indy is a much better personality and cultural fit for Wentz. He's already bought land for hunting and seems pretty happy to acclimate. That could be huge in itself (acclimate, not just hunting land). And I think Indy fans will identify with a guy like him more than Philly did. IMO, he's more "Indy" than Luck. If he performs near Luck's level, fans will be happy, he'll be happy, and he'll be a Colt for a long time. I think the combo of the improved roster, and what I predict will be Reich's conservative play calling early, will likely give him a huge and quick boost in DVOA. I would not be shocked at all to see him jump immediately to top 16. If all of our starting WRs stay healthy, I can see top 10. IMO his biggest thing is just staying healthy and gelling with is pass catchers.   I'm a fan of DVOA, but it can be overly negative to QBs on teams that run the ball a ton, or are conservative with a lot of short passing.   Top 16 to make the playoffs, top 7ish to go far. The $s don't bother me. The $ plus picks make it a bet that needs to pay off.
    • Hey, I was so positive that Frank Reich, who gave career years for Luck and Rivers on several fronts, could even work with Sam Darnold and Trubisky if the Colts were to sign one of them. So you can definitely extrapolate what I think of what he could do with Wentz that I feel has more potential.
