    That's not being a pessimist. That's being a realist. Back problems are a huge deal and he's been sidelined way too much already.

    Just sayin'. There's no reason to immediately give him the moon. You don't want to play such hardball that there are bad feelings but value deals are out there at times.

    "Immediately"? The guy's been here four years and has All-Pro and Pro-Bowl credentials to show for it. He's one of the best if not THE best in the game at his position. Why would he take top six or top ten money?

    All it would take is one freak play and his career is over. Top six or top ten money? Uh-uh, baby. Show me the Benjamins right now. Lots of 'em.

    I'm guessing it'll be 6 years, $80-85 million and about $35 guaranteed.

    I am really glad it's done. Next up is Lawrence. At least we can potentially franchise him again if needed. But I'd rather get something long term done if possible. The other option is to wait and make sure he can reproduce last seasons success. Of course the price tag will only go up if he does that.

    They got it done, but I'm still not seeing any details on the contract. Anyone else seen them?

    The total deal for All-Pro right guard Zack Martin is seven years for $93.41 million and includes a $20 million signing bonus, according to a source. As Adam Schefter reported, the guaranteed money is $40 million. The Cowboys created around $3 million in cap room in 2018 with the new contract.
