:lol: gerald, you just GROSSLY overpaid that tub of goo RB (and to an extent, QB) of yours and got stuck in a loop.... Dont try to denigrate a guy who has always been a stud on a field, even when sharing w lamb.

I don't mean to #### on your 2022 Super Bowl run, but - Amari Cooper with 68 catches and not even amassing 1,000 yards receiving; while being the #1 guy isn't jaw-dropping numbers.  Whether it is talent, trust or usage - he simply wasn't worth $20 million.  

Zeke was an overpay and now Dak Prescott would be considered market equivalent, based on some of these other salaries... I loved Amari Cooper and was sad to see him leave, but continuing to invest that type of capital on a player with his utilization would be making a bad situation worse.

a down year, for sure. also missed 2 games, not that itd make a world of difference.

but 5/7 yrs w 1000+yds (one was a half season played due to injury).... the guy is consistently good.

The money wasn't sustainable and something had to give.  Should Jerry have signed Zeke for that massive contract?  Probably not, but when you select a guy early in the first round of a draft and he has been productive for you - what do you expect?  

Zeke isn't worth his contract, but up until Christian Kirk saw $60 mill deal, neither was Amari and faulting Jerry for trading him is foolish.  

If you are paid top receiver money, you can't just chalk up last year to a down year and a Covid absence.  Cedrick Wilson, 4th WR on the roster almost had the same stats as Amari Cooper last year.
