  • should this be Dax last year, playing under the franchise tag?

  • Um, if they tag him again his last year in Dallas, it will be his last year in Dallas.

  • Molly, if they've tagged him and they don't strike a long term deal because in 2022 they just won't be able to afford them.

  • Look, that that's gonna win here, regardless of regardless of how this turns out, whether he's either gonna cash in for $70 million over two years or they're gonna wind up, offer them some kind of deal that probably comes in right around 40 per year.

  • Five years, 200 million.

  • Something like that in order to get him long term.

  • Or he's gonna hit the free agency market in 2022 and he's going to cash in then.

  • Either way, look, it's this no long term deal this year.

  • In the years time Doc is gone.

  • Long term deal this year, then Hey, then their role.

  • And then they just have to figure out how to manage the rest of their roster.

  • But you know what?

  • The head scratching part about all this is that we're even talking about, you know, whether or not that that Dak Prescott could be a part of the Dallas Cowboys in a year from now on a calendar year from now, because it really doesn't make any sense.

  • And it's really the sticking point to get in a long term deal has been the number of years in the contract.

  • I mean, that that really is just an egregious mistake on the part of the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Because, you know, ultimately, the longer you play this out, the more to leverage has shifted to the player anyway.

  • So you probably shouldn't go ahead and relented and given into them in the first place, or or jacked up the average average job per year in the guaranteed money on a five year deal, to the point where he would say, Hey, you know what?

  • Forget about four years.

  • I'll take this five year deal and just make him one of the highest paid players.

  • Either way, Dax winning.

  • That's going to continue winning.

  • And right now Dallas is probably in full blown panic mode.

  • Good man.

  • I think you hit the nail on the head, Louis.

  • Which is why I would say Hell, no, there shouldn't be Dax last year in Dallas that they franchise him.

  • He's winning.

  • I mean, he'll have gotten as soon as he signs the franchise.

  • That's 70 million in two years.

  • Guaranteed.

  • He got hurt last year early.

  • Got his whole 30 almost two million.

  • If he got hurt early again this year, he gets the whole 37 billion.

  • That's 70 million, and he barely even played if that were to happen, and then he set up for over 50 next year if they wanted to franchise him again, which counts all against the cap that year.

  • Because you can't pro rate it like you can.

  • The signing bonus in a long term deal, which the Cowboys can't afford to do.

  • So.

  • That means at that point, Louis, his price went up.

  • If they franchise them this year, and right now we know where this is going.

  • If he wants three at 40 a year, they're going to have to give it to him.

  • But that's this.

  • That's this.

  • Today's price tag.

  • Tomorrow's price tag is significantly more because if they imagine just I'm gonna sign this right here.

  • I count like 20 something percent against your cap and I got 53.

  • 54 million coming this year.

  • So why would I now sign a three year deal for a buck 20?

  • No, it's more than that.

  • So that means the Cowboys have no choice.

  • What's bizarre to me about all this?

  • Stephen A is.

  • The Cowboys have sort of negotiated against their own best interest here.

  • Like at a certain point in the negotiation, you have to look and go.

  • It's only gonna get worse from here.

  • And yet their behavior is irrational because every step they take makes back more expensive.

  • They're paying back more by doing this.

  • I don't get it, You know, for me, we can throw out all the numbers and we all know it.

  • You know, we have a research department that gives us a lot of the stuff.

  • Plus, we do our own research.

  • We know that he's gonna count $37 million if they franchise tag him.

  • Obviously, if their franchise tag for a second consecutive year going in the year three, he's not going to be there because you can't franchise tag him again because it's gonna cost them over 50 million.

  • He's gonna take about 20% of the cap.

  • We know all of that.

  • Okay, here's what resonates with me.

  • And I said this and I know it makes people uncomfortable.

  • I don't give a damn.

  • It does not matter to me.

  • If this were Tony Romo, would we be having this conversation?

  • Chances are no.

  • We saw Dak Prescott in 2019 through 30 touchdowns, 11 interceptions.

  • He completed better than 65% of his passes the last three years, 67%.

  • 65% this year, five games in or 4.5 games.

  • Before he got hurt, he was completed 68% of his passes.

  • He was flat out bawling.

  • They were one of the top three offenses in the league when he was playing, when he went down, the nose dived.

  • We get all of that.

  • And my point is, is that when you consider that along with the model citizen that he has been, I mean a virtual an umbilical cord to Jerry Jones during the whole Colin Kaepernick kneeling over the national anthem during the whole social justice issue doesn't matter what this dude has been.

  • A model of consistency.

  • He showed up to work he produced it was back page news when the dude couldn't make practice one day.

  • Didn't miss the game, but because he missed a practice, it was back page news.

  • Okay, that's how the reliable and trustworthy and and and productive this guy has been.

  • Not just throwing the football, not even just running the football from the quarterback position because he's got some wheels on him.

  • His leadership ability inside that locker room, his leadership in the community, the face of America's team, this franchise.

  • And from the time that he walked through the doors and was busting everybody's butt and doing it up and pre season of his rookie year, Jerry Jones was reluctant to hand the realms to him then.

  • He's been reluctant ever since.

  • He's been reluctant and hesitant to make a long term commitment in this guy, and all we do is talk about numbers.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
