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!

    • Their defense had an off year last season but Von Miller missed the whole season. If he comes back at full strength and the addition of Patrick Surtain, their D will be good again IMO. Rodgers would still make Denver very good, maybe great because he is a top 3 Qb in the league at worse.
    • This D is built on getting pressure from the front 4 and clearly we did not in 2020.  I don't think Ballard drafted Paye to be a star in yr 2 or 3 and if you watch their reaction they expect results in 2021.  We did bring back Rhodes which is huge and on the other side Sin and Carry should take the next step or could be another 2nd rd bust for Ballard.  I agree, the conservative zone and low blitzing scheme drove me crazy but with all that we still have two all pros in Leonard and Buckner leading the charge.     When your 15th qb in the league is Baker Mayfield or Matt Ryan I disagree with your statement.  Yes top 10 would ideal but this team just needs consistency regardless of rankings.  If Wentz is top 5 there is no doubt this team is championship caliber but if all other pieces fall I can see us still being competitive regardless. 
    • We do not have a top 10 D......   Broncos have a very good LT, drafted a great C, and will have their RT back this year. They also drafted the best RB in the draft, and still have Gordon. They had an off year defensively, but they drafted the best CB in the draft, and Miller will be back. Overall, Denver has had a good profile of D and running the ball through the years.
    • My point is, your earlier posts kind of suggest our D will be top notch this year. We didn't upgrade the DBs. We still have the same conservative zone and low blitzing scheme and coaches. Yes, we added a good DE, and one that might be good in the next 2-3 years, but DEs typically take a year or two anyway. Overall, I expect our D will be the same or maybe even take a step back this year.    On the QB spot... I disagree on only needing a top 15 guy. A top 15 guy will get you into the playoffs with a solid team behind him. You still need a top 5 or 10 QB if you want to progress and win a SB. It's a rare blue moon to win with 15ish or lower QB. Yup. Would be a great landing spot for him.  I still think he stays in GB, but I also think it's best if they part ways.
