  1. What is Lat Murray worth in a dynasty, 12 team PPR. It seems like I cant give this guy away. I decided to start a rebuild this year, although my team is basically the Detroit Lions, rebuilding for the last decade.
  2. Guys for real. A Peterson is NOT coming to Dallas. There just isnt a way to fit him under the salary cap. Do some research. Read some articles. Peterson isnt taking anywhere near what the Cowboys can afford.
  3. I dont see the Cowboys bringing in one of these retread RB. I just dont. There are already two on the roster and I think they are eyeing a rookie in the draft. I may be wrong but that is the way I see it. This team needs defensive help. Romo/Dez and the O-line will make a lot of RB look really good.
  4. Trying to emulate the pats often sounds better than it works What I meant by that was when was the last time you saw the Pats buy big on a RB? They never do. They keep winning.
  5. How is it dead money, though? There are always a few quality guys to pick up post-6/1. Read your own article. If they cut him he is not playing on the team anymore. They get charged $7.4 million in 2016 for a player who isnt on the team. That is "dead money." He's getting that 7.4 either way, right? So the question is, can we help the How is it dead money, though? There are always a few quality guys to pick up post-6/1. Read your own article. If they cut him he is not playing on the team anymore. They get charged $7.4 million in 2016 for a player who isnt on the team. That is "dead money." It's dead money either way, then. You either pay him 19M to play one season (12+7.4), 24M to play two (12+12). Or cut him and pay 10.4M (4+7.4). Let me know if I'm missing something. I'm not a big cap guy. Oh me neither. This whole cap thing is mind boggling. Just basically repeating how it was explained to me. I am just saying I would rather them get him to restructure. I dont think he is awful. I think he is an average CB that can still be a big part of the defense. I think with a good pass rush you will see Carr as an above average CB.
  6. Just from what I have read, the Cowboys were really high on Ryan Williams. Several teams tried to steal him off the practice squad, he turned down many offers to stay with the Cowboys. The Cowboys eventually brought him up to the team and have high hopes for him. If you dont think he is an option, do your homework. This guy had a 1st round grade by a lot of teams and slipped to early 2nd round to the Cardinals. He is a solid guy who just had some injuries early. Randle/Williams/Dunbar would be a decent three headed monster with no real pressure on any of the three. Look at the Pats. That is what we are looking at. Wont be great for fantasy football but will be great for the cap and for the actual team.
  7. Im telling you right now, Dallas is not going to make any big splashes in free agency. If you are sitting around waiting for that then you will be really disappointed. They dont have the cap room for it. They are being smart and building through the draft and cultivating their own players. Not overspending on free agents like the Redskins always have....and Jerry used to do.
  8. sign spiller draft gordon or gurley that'd be cool Why on Earth would they sign Spiller? He turned down $4.8 million in Buffalo! Dallas isnt paying him that either or they would have kept Murray.

  10. We have Ryan Williams as well, not just Randle. Going to draft one is my guess.
  11. I have this feeling that behind the scenes it has been discussed whether or not the Cowboys can live without Dez. It is far more beneficial for the cowboys to sign Dez to a long term deal but what if....just saying what if....behind the scenes they are thinking he is too much of a risk to give a pile of money. Just some off season food for thought.
  12. How can they not cut him if he's not willing to made big adjustments? I thought playing more man-to-man would help, and maybe he wasn't as bad. But he's far from good and worth nowhere near the money he's making. Man, 3 years ago it looked like the Cowboys were set up at corner for a long time. Easy...cutting him would NOT help the cap. $585K savings and dead money. If they can convince him to restructure then no problem. I still think they are set at corner. They need a pass rush to take some pressure off of them. No CB could survive with the pass rush the cowboys had last year. "If the Cowboys do cut Carr, it will likely be designated for June 1, which would save them roughly $8 million cap space in 2015 but give them a $7.4 million charge against the 2016 cap." - Star-Telegram Read more here: http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/nfl/dallas-cowboys/cowboys-corner-blog/article6721821.html#storylink=cpy Exactly my point. Keeping Carr is just way smarter than cutting him and having a bunch of dead money. Hopefully Jerry learned his lesson with that dead money stuff. I think we are still paying Deion and Aikman.
  13. Do you count those as huge losses? Spencer cant stay healthy and Moore was just a guy they discovered and cultivated. I think Marineli can do that again. I am not a huge Spencer fan. I wish we could have brought Moore back but he is replaceable.
  14. This was 100% the right thing to do. Murray was a great guy and I liked him but he isnt explosive. He ran through WIDE OPEN holes and ALWAYS got caught from behind. Even if he is as good next year as he was this past year, he isnt worth the ridiculous contract he is getting from Philly. Not if the Cowboys want to fix the defense and continue to get better. This isnt the early 90's anymore. Cant pay the QB/RB/WR the entire cap. 5 years ago Jerry would have done this. Cowboys would be 5-11 before you know it. Thankfully someone is making good decisions in that building now.
