Former NFL agent’s target price for Dak Prescott’s contract includes well over $100M in guarantees

Photo by Tom Pennington/ NFL QBs, at least quality ones, don’t come cheap. Cowboys fans continues to wait on progress towards a long-term contract extension between Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys. When millions and millions of dollars are on the line, these things can take some time. Pro Football Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith offered up his take on the subject recently, he is of the opinion that Prescott should take less to stay with the Cowboys and make up the difference in endorsements. That’s definitely one school of thought. Whenever Dak does get his extension it is likely...

Cowboys 2020 NFL mock draft roundup: Check out all the new names showing up for Dallas

Cowboys 2020 NFL mock draft roundup: Check out all the new names showing up for Dallas

Photo by Roy K. Miller/Icon Sportswire via Variety is the spice of life for Cowboys mock drafts. It wasn’t too long ago that Grant Delpit and Xavier McKinney were basically the only two names you needed to know when it came to Cowboys mock drafts. Sure, you could occasionally find another name thrown in there, but the safeties from LSU and Alabama were all the rage for Cowboys mockers. Instead of continuing that trend and getting to a consensus, things are now starting diverge when it comes to Cowboys mock drafts. New names, new positions, and even a few players on the offensive side...

Emmitt Smith says Dak Prescott should take team friendly deal and make up the rest in endorsements

Emmitt Smith says Dak Prescott should take team friendly deal and make up the rest in endorsements

Photo by Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic Of course, it’s not Emmitt Smith’s contract we’re talking about, it’s Dak Prescott’s. The 1993 Dallas Cowboys were the first team to start a season 0-2 and win the Super Bowl. You probably knew that. Much of the reason that the ‘93 team lost their first two games had to do with the fact that arguably their best player, Emmitt Smith, held out to start the season in his quest to earn a new contract with the team. Smith eventually got paid, the Cowboys won, and everything was good again. It’s been 27 years since that fateful season (time sure...

Cowboys roster breakdown: Wide receiver is the most complex situation

Photo by Adam Davis/Icon Sportswire via There are a lot of moving pieces here. There have been some simple situations in this series of looks at the Dallas Cowboys roster. Others are a bit more involved. None have had the complexity and options of the wide receiver position. Currently under contract Michael Gallup Noah Brown Devin Smith Cedrick Wilson Tevin Jones Lance Lenoir Ventell Bryant Jon’Vea Johnson That’s one proven starter, some players that have seen limited action, several coming off injury, and some real unknowns. One oddity is that the 2019 roster at...

Jason Witten wants to stay with the Dallas Cowboys but is seemingly prepared for football elsewhere

Jason Witten wants to stay with the Dallas Cowboys but is seemingly prepared for football elsewhere

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Where will Jason Witten play in 2020? There are a lot of huge questions hovering over the Dallas Cowboys and a few months from now a lot of them will have answers. One would have to imagine that we would know Jason Witten’s future by then. For now, Gold Jacket Witt rests in limbo (Dak Prescott’s contractual situation is also there, ditto Amari Cooper and Byron Jones). Much of his future seemingly rested on his own shoulders as he had to decide whether he wanted to give his return from retirement a second season. It appears as if he’s made his...

Cowboys News: Byron Jones with an NFC East rival would be a nightmare for Dallas fans

Cowboys News: Byron Jones with an NFC East rival would be a nightmare for Dallas fans

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports All the Cowboys news you could want. Cowboys’ Byron Jones likely to command $16M per year; Eagles, Giants are expected suitors - Cody Benjamin and Patrik Walker, CBS Sports While the Cowboys keep themselves busy trying to get deals in place for Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper, the likelihood of moving on from top cornerback Byron Jones becomes more likely each day. But Jones could receive a huge payday while staying in the NFC East. Byron Jones should be the top corner available in free agency, and CBS Sports contributor Joel Corry, a former agent and...

Cowboys bringing back Keith O’Quinn for role with the organization

Cowboys bringing back Keith O’Quinn for role with the organization

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports Looks like no hard feelings between the Cowboys and O’Quinn. The Cowboys special teams were bad in 2019, not just sorta bad, but devastatingly bad. It’s a fair assumption that the Cowboys lost at least a couple of games based on the performance of that unit. It wasn’t just the Brett Maher situation either. At least that was taken care of towards the end of the season when Kai Forbath came on and didn’t miss a kick. Some of the problem was field position and hidden yardage, and as we learned earlier today, punter Chris Jones was dealing with injury...

Cowboys 2020 NFL draft prospect: Wisconsin WR Quintez Cephus

Cowboys 2020 NFL draft prospect: Wisconsin WR Quintez Cephus

Photo by Joe Scarnici/ Get to know Wisconsin WR Quintez Cephus The 2020 draft class is absolutely loaded with talent at the wide receiver position. From day one to day three, there is depth, talent, and a wide variety of skillsets in this draft class. The Cowboys will likely look to add a receiver at some point in this draft, but where exactly? With so many needs on defense, and bigger needs on offense than a WR (unless Randall Cobb is not re-signed), it will likely be at least until day two that the Cowboys look to use a pick on the wide receiver position (free agency and trade-back...

Cowboys roster breakdown: Running backs and tight ends are scarce

Cowboys roster breakdown: Running backs and tight ends are scarce

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ There are not many bodies to work with on the current roster. But there may not be a big push to add many of either. We’re taking a look at two positions for the Dallas Cowboys in this installment, backs and tight ends, due to the small number of names involved from all sources. Running back/fullback The Cowboys took what was seen to be a bit of a gamble last season in the backfield, only carrying two running backs and a fullback. Somewhat surprisingly, they got away with it, and had no noticeable negative effects. It will remain to be seen if Mike McCarthy is...

2020 NFL Draft: Xavier McKinney is the pick for Cowboys in Mel Kiper’s latest mock

Photo by Roy K. Miller/Icon Sportswire via The latest mock draft for the Cowboys goes for a safety. There are almost as many mock drafts out on the internet these days as there are arguments about how much Dak Prescott should be paid, that can only mean that we are in the 2020 NFL offseason. Times sure are interesting but before we know it there will be teams on the clock. Until then, we survive on mock drafts and there are many people that feel confident about predicting what the Dallas Cowboys are going to do. It was two years ago when the Cowboys last had a first-round draft pick to...

Why Jerry Jones “big splash in the draft” comments should be taken seriously, Part II

Why Jerry Jones “big splash in the draft” comments should be taken seriously, Part II

Max Faulkner/Fort Worth Star-Telegram/Tribune News Service via A pattern may be developing in the Cowboys draft process. Yesterday, we started pondering the legitimacy of Jerry Jones’ “big splash in the draft” reports that leaked out last week. With the team under new management, the organization has removed the influence of Jason Garrett and replaced him with a hands-off player personnel guy, Mike McCarthy. Now, we’ll sit back and wait and see if the Jerry is more free to do the things he want to do, or if the stability of the Cowboys war room will remain in tact. While...

Cowboys news: The Dallas secondary is seen as the team’s biggest need

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports All the goodness of Cowboys news. Four Downs: NFC East - Scott Spratt, Football Outsiders The Cowboys have plenty to do over the offseason, but the secondary seems to be the spot that is getting the most play between free agent projections and mock drafts. Dallas Cowboys Biggest Need: Secondary It is inconceivable that the Cowboys would let the 26-year-old helmsman of the No. 2 DVOA offense and No. 5 DVOA pass offense leave in free agency. Assuming they retain Dak Prescott either with a big contract or a franchise tag, then Dallas should turn their attention...

What one report of a potential Teddy Bridgewater contract could mean for Dak Prescott

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports The cost of signing QBs is going up and up; Dallas needs to conclude business soon with Dak Prescott Death, taxes, and debating the financial value of a Dallas Cowboys quarterback. It’s true that Cowboys fans have long disagreed on how much their team’s signal-caller should be paid, this is a phenomenon that really dates back to about 2007 when Tony Romo signed his first significant deal with the club. Someday, after the Cowboys have won the next 20 Super Bowls maybe, we will all look back at the debate that encircled Dak Prescott’s contractual...

The top target for the Cowboys in 2020 free agency? One name that’s been mentioned

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports Should the Cowboys swap out cornerbacks in free agency? To sign Byron Jones or not to sign Byron Jones, that is the question. The Cowboys know that Jones will command a big-time contract in free agency and they are balancing their books with deals coming for Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper. Signing Jones to a huge, multi-year contract might not make the most sense for the organization financially. But if you don’t, how comfortable would the team be rolling out Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis as their top two corners? They could always spend a high draft...
