    This is just the wrong year to have to do that.

    I can't believe I am defending keeping him, but sometimes discretion is the better part of valor.
    Yea, I have no issue with taking DJ Moore at 19, with Anthony Miller, Chark, Washington, or Sutton at 50, or someone like DaeSean Hamilton, Pettis or Gallup in the 3rd. I'm not love with Ridley at 19 really but I'd be ok with that too.

    I'd be fine with any of those picks, and then dropping Dez, but it is idiotic for them to box themselves into a corner and then force a pick, even if it is a pretty deep crop on Day 2. And they damn well better not even think about trading up for Ridley in the 1st.

      You better believe they're gonna force it. Pick #19 is gonna be a WR, and none of these guys are blue chips. As you said, its a bad year to put yourself in a situation like this.

        Even if I knew I was cutting Dez I'd wait until after the draft. Why not? Draft day trades happen some times. Hell maybe someone gets desperate and is willing to trade anything for Dez Bryant. And if not there is no harm. You can still draft the WR's you want and cut Dez after. There just really isn't a benefit to cutting Dez now. If you were going to do that why didn't you cut him at the beginning of free agency when you could have used the money to actually do something?

          As in sign Watkins, whom they made a play for but had no money to compete.

            Yeah pretty much. And if not Watkins there were other options. Maybe over priced options but still cheaper than 12 mil a year.

            Or used the money on a LBer or NT or safety. So that you have less needs heading into the draft.

            • I still can't get over how dumb these guys must be to offer Watkins presumably 14-15 million, if not the full 16 that the Chiefs offered. Even with Dez in decline I'd rather have him over Watkins, and you're going to give Watkins a brand new 3/48 deal while Dez only has 2/32 left on his?

              What?

              And I'm not even going to get into how much of a better value Hurns is than Watkins, there is no way that Watkins is worth more than twice what Hurns is. Their statistical production is more or less the same over 4 years in the league, both have injury concerns, and that's with Watkins having a year in an explosive Rams offense while Hurns languished in Jacksonville all 4 years.

              I have no problem with the strategy of cutting Dez, adding a few mid-tier free agents and drafting a WR high, but going after Watkins that hard will always be ridiculous to me.

                I like Watkins better than Dez at this point in their careers. Just a more explosive player.

                But with that being said I agree with your conclusion. You don't make up for over paying Dez by over paying Watkins. If you pay 16 mil you better be getting a Julio Jones or Antonio Brown type talent. At least Beckham assuming he stays above the too crazy line. So making another mistake to cover up for a different mistake is foolish. Just draft a WR and be done with it. Doesn't have to be a first rounder. But start drafting some before the seventh round.

                  When has this group ever given you hope for not being idiotic?

                  • I don’t want these 1st round WRs. Better to wait a round or two or even grab one next year. This year’s crop is artificially high.

                    • If they do cut Dez today, Twitter is going to be unbearable for the rest of the day with all the crying.

                          Exactly! These guys aren't worth #19 at all IMO. And what really concerns me is if we cut Dez we will take Moore or Ridley. And that means no Hernandez or Vea (if he were to fall to us). A very foolish move as I see it.

                            Ridley is a better prospect than Vea. Yeah I said it.
