When you brought up Goff?

I think he was trying to infer that OAK would be in for Goff over Carr in FA - so theyd also need to back up the Bullion Wagon.

On this tangent?

I think Ppl forget Goff is under contract for 2020 &(even if they have to go the 5th yr option route) Rams have 53million in cap space.

We can get back to Dak/ JJs hair now :)


how about if dak gets 34 what goff would be worth since he has better numbers and also been to the super bowl,rams have big decision to make 2020 also that 53 million is gonna be gone very quickly


No. No, they dont :D

    If the deal doesnt look like itll be any cheaper than signing him for a 5th year? You take the 5th yr (& keep talking).
    If the deal doesnt look like itll be any cheaper than the frnchise?You'll take the franchise (& keep talking).

Wilson has the biggest QB contract in the league currently and hes only taking up 13.3% of Seattles cap this year.

Arod is 13.4% of GBP cap, this year. Brady? 13.4% of NEP cap. Rivers? 12.3% for LAC. Even Cousins and his mega bucks is 15% for MIN.

Thats even before we allow for whats become an annual event of increasing the cap:

    Year / Maximum team salary
    2019 / $188.2 million
    2018 / $177.2 million
    2017 / $167.00 million
    2016 / $155.27 million
    2015 / $143.28 million
    2014 / $133 million
    2013 / $123 million

The Rams have 3yrs to get a deal done and 25% of their cap available to do it in 2020

As well as another likely $10-12million in 2021. And another in 2022.

The cap increases easily outpace the gap between 5th yr contract to franchise tag.

Goffs availability to the market is both a non-issue & wont greatly affect LAR roster in terms of player retention.

Yahoo's Charles Robinson confirms Ezekiel Elliott is considering holding out of Cowboys training camp.


Per Robinson, the sides have been talking for over a month. Robinson believes Elliott will nix a holdout, even absent a new deal, if he believes the Cowboys are "making a serious push to get an extension worked." The Cowboys are scheduled to report in 12 days.

NFL Network's Jane Slater reports the Cowboys are willing to let Amari Cooper and Dak Prescott play out the final year of their deals.

This sounds an awful lot like a negotiation tactic, and the reality is Dallas cannot let both Prescott and Cooper play out their deals because they can only tag one of them next spring. According to Slater, the Cowboys have a "generous" offer on the table for their No. 1 receiver and starting QB, but it is clearly not good enough.

It's an interesting terminology and I wonder if it's calculated.

Typically contract offers are described as "fair". These offer from the Cowboys are "generous". Like Jerry is doing these players a favor.

Jerry seems like the kinda guy who is happy with 'spare no expense' when it fits into his demands but would consider himself getting pick-pocketed when others make demands from him.

Speaking Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones claimed he was "not afraid" to let Dak Prescott head into his walk year without a new contract.


"It’s not terrifying to me," Jones insisted. "Do we want to make a deal with Dak? We certainly want to do that, but we’re not afraid to go another year." Jones is an unconvincing bluffer.

Many reasons to turn down a contract. We will have to wait till the smoke clears.

I'm trying to think of another team that would pay Dak $30M/yr

I'm betting Jerry is too.

This spot is truly the worst - having a guy that is not elite but just above that average line yet you are forced to pay elite money because that's the market.

I'd much rather sign a journeyman than pay Dak that much.

That's a lot of money to turn down to "Bet on yourself" sort of speak!

$30 per would have made him the highest paid QB currently in 2019.

Didn't Joe Flacco do the same thing, "Betted on himself" then got paid!! albeit with a much much better defense!
