  • 2019 Cowboys Free Agency Thread

    https://cowboyswire.usatoday.com/201...ntial-targets/

    I think I summed up what I think could happen and would want to happen within the framework of how we do business.

    I know it is all fun and nice to pretend we are going to be major players for Earl Thomas or Landon Collins, I just don't see it happening.

    We also have some other needs it would be nice to put to bed before the draft since we don't have a first.

    We really need to be open to taking anyone at any time.

    We're gonna sign Earl. That will be our splash.

    I don't think I would throw much money at Eiffert. Cant make the team in the tub.
    I was on the draft LVE train. I was for trading for Amari before it happened.

      I just don't know why we would have been willing to send a second for Earl but then when we could have him for free we would say pass. Either way the man was getting paid.

        How can we afford ET when we're trying to work out deals for Dak, Tank, and maybe Zeke?

          60 mil in cap room. That's how.

            The only guy I know much of anything about is Eifert, mostly from his college days. As a pro, I know he had one really good season but hardly saw the field a good part of his career. I'd pass.

            I still don't think we sign ET. It's not like Dallas is the only team he can sign with, despite the whole "Come get me" incident. Maybe he only said it because he knows Dallas will throw $$$ at big name talent when the opportunity is there.

              Eifert is coming off a bad break, I don't feel too good about him staying healthy at his age. And with ET, I think we're players to a point. we wont break the bank on him, but we will definitely pursue.

                And, surely more to come with a couple of cap casualties getting cut. (Williams, Beasley, Lee, etc.)

                  Yep. We can easily get to $80+ million in cap space.
                  No Pat McQuistan = No Super Bowl. It's that simple.

                    Shrimp is a FA. And I would be shocked if they cut Lee. Williams' savings is peanuts.

                    Keep dreaming for splash FAs, it ain't happening though.

                    Sincerely,

                      Williams, if cut post June 1, would net us 3.5 mill, and I wouldn't be shocked at all if they cut Lee, creating 7 more. That's 10 mill from just 2 players. You will not win this war, DFDC.

                          Oh, I'm not saying you're wrong about what we do or don't do in FA. I'm talking about how much money they can free up if they so choose.

                            $80 mil is a hell of an opportunity and a sweet situation we haven't been in for a long time. Opens the door to lock in our top vets. But personally I'm just not sure about signing ET. Giving big $$$ to a 30 year old coming off an injury. If it were my call I'd take a safety in the 2nd or 3rd.

                              I would absolutely sign Thomas.

                              This is not a great safety class, especially since we have to wait until 58.

                              There are maybe five safeties better than what we have. I think at least three go before our first choice.
