  • They're going to reach a long term deal, I believe, and I'll tell you why the NFL is set up in the following way.

  • You are looking for a quarterback.

  • You must find a franchise quarterback.

  • If you want to compete for a Super Bowl year in and year out, you must have a franchise quarterback.

  • The quarterback position has been made so important that for the first time in the history of the NFL, we're seeing maybe the quarterback is even more important than the coach.

  • I don't think that's ever happened before.

  • You know, league wide.

  • Maybe certain quarterbacks have the same kind of power that NBA stars have, and they can dictate terms to teams in the middle of a of a deal if they're guaranteed money, even when it's a cap hit to the team and decide where they're going to play.

  • This is the first time we've ever contemplated that, So that is Stella.

  • Let's establish the quarterback position is everything.

  • Now the question is simply once you found the quarterback, how are you going to pay him?

  • A franchise quarterback getting paid at the top of the market is now making minimum high thirties If your deal is coming up now and you're considered a top of the market quarterback, you are going to make high thirties.

  • The franchise tag values you that way, says the average of the top five.

  • So Dak is already being paid per year, like he's elite.

  • What's been the hesitancy with the Cowboys paying back?

  • I think because they rightfully look at that and go well.

  • We don't know if he's actually elite.

  • We think he's on his way.

  • He's very good, maybe on his way to great.

  • But he's not great yet, So why should we pay him as though he is great?

  • It's gonna handcuff us in terms of what we can do with the rest of the team.

  • And unless you're super great Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, you can't make up for the rest of the team.

  • Even then, it's hard to make up if you have real deficiencies all over the team because you've paid the quarterback.

  • So I understand the hesitancy.

  • But at a certain point we're now at the moment of truth.

  • The 37 million is going to count against the cap fully this year if they franchise them next year.

  • will be 50 something.

  • Now They have no choice.

  • Steven A.

  • Their choice is as follows.

  • Either you found your franchise quarterback and it's time to pay him.

  • Maybe even over.

  • Pay him or you don't have a quarterback.

  • Which one is it?

  • Dallas.

  • I think once you have a quarterback, you ain't letting them walk out the door.

  • They're gonna give him a long term deal.

  • I disagree with you.

  • I'm going to go to franchise route.

  • But it's not because I think that you're wrong about what you're seeing.

  • Theoretically, I think what you're missing, Max, is that you're leaning on the intelligence and the absence of stubbornness by Jerry Job.

  • That's what this comes down to.

  • Logically spot.

  • Kellerman is at it again, right on the money.

  • Logically, Yeah, absolutely.

  • You're absolutely correct.

  • I mean, I don't know why.

  • Why, why?

  • You know this Captain Kirk would say, but it's true logic, you know, Spot Kellerman is at it again, but we can't ignore the stubbornness of Jerry Jones.

  • The fact that again I'm going to I'm gonna say this until the cows come home.

  • Here's the deal.

  • Why this guy?

  • If it were Tony Rome or with anybody else.

  • You gotta believe a deal would have been done already.

  • This dude has been stubborn when it has come to that press got from day one.

  • He was stubborn when he arrived.

  • He was stubborn because remember at Mississippi State I forgot what transgression he got into it.

  • Whatever.

  • But talent wise that Prescott wasn't some fourth round pick.

  • He was worthy of being picked earlier.

  • But that did not happen.

  • Jerry Jones grabs in the fourth round.

  • Then you get in there and he's balling lights out in the preseason, you're still reluctant to handle the range.

  • Tony Romo got back issues contemplating retirement.

  • Still you stubborn, you holding out you're holding out.

  • Then, even after Tony Romo was pretty much done, what do you do?

  • You still reluctant to hand the reins to Dak Prescott?

  • He's the guy you leaned on because you had no choice.

  • But then you didn't want to give him that love, all right?

  • And then one year after another comes about, he performs, He plays, lights out, he plays, lights out against Aaron Rodgers in the postseason, even though they ended up losing that game because that's passed down the left sideline.

  • What do you do?

  • You sit up there and you still say, All right.

  • He's all right.

  • Okay.

  • Yeah.

  • We like We'll see.

  • We'll see.

  • We'll see.

  • That has been the mentality of Jerry Jones since the moment that Prescott arrived.

  • And now that Prescott is like hell with you, you gave everybody else that market value, gave it to the offensive line, gave it to Ezekiel Elliott.

  • Gave it to Amari.

  • Cooper gave it to Jaylin Smith.

  • The list goes on and on, and but me, you want to sit up there and talk to me about what I deserve in terms of market value.

  • Then the money is settled, according to the report, because we haven't heard from Jerry and act specifically on this.

  • But according to the report, the money is not even an issue anymore.

  • Oh, it's the years now, if you are an owner, that's in your fifties and sixties and, you know, you see, uh, you know, an abundant a long, long future ahead of you.

  • Even though tomorrow is not promised, you still have that mentality that's different.

  • Jerry Jones is on the record.

  • I ain't getting any younger, you know, my best days are behind me.

  • I'm not that young spring chicken I used to be.

  • I mean, the urgency of now is here, and you're sweating five years that you want him on lockdown instead of the four that he wanted at the time.

  • And now he's at the number three because clearly he's looking to be a free agent in three years, and he always had that targeted, that targeted times time slot.

  • You're Jerry Jones.

  • Why would you do this?

  • And so a lot of it so much of it doesn't make sense, Max, that when you sit here and you talk about how you think and you break it down about how Jerry Jones ultimately will come to his senses and sign this guy, My problem is you could have came to your senses a year ago.

  • You could have came to your senses two years ago.

  • You religiously have refused to do it.

  • We don't know the explanation as to why that is.

  • It doesn't appear to make much business sense.

  • Doesn't appear to make much sense to somebody who's looking at his own mortality.

  • And I'm talking literally mortality, not football mortality.

  • I'm talking about Jerry Jones mortality and still you playing hardball doesn't make sense, and that's what you're relying on.

  • I'm not relying on that.

  • Let me say you're being quite logical, captain.

  • But I'll say this.

  • His stubbornness.

  • There's no doubt about it.

  • Jerry is being stubborn.

  • I don't get the sense that Jerry became a billionaire by by the margins.

  • You know, some people do it every margin and every little thing they make.

  • The little profit little profit adds up there.

  • Very, very careful.

  • I get the sense that Jerry Jones became a billionaire because he has a big imagination.

  • Stephen.

  • A look at the stadium in Dallas and you know what?

  • Jerry Jones has been on the record saying Every one of my best deals.

  • I overpaid at the time.

  • They said I overpaid.

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

They're going to reach a long term deal, I believe, and I'll tell you why the NFL is set up in the following way.
