UGH! watching the game was BRUTAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Andy Dalton wasn’t very good. Neither was his offensive line. Or the Dallas Cowboys’ defense. Add head coach Mike McCarthy to the list as well.

None were as bad as Ezekiel Elliott.

Arizona humiliated Dallas, 38-10, on national television Monday night. It was the Cowboys’ first full game since quarterback Dak Prescott was lost for the season to an ankle injury (and since he’s a free agent, potentially forever). All they managed to do was make Prescott’s value even more obvious.

Someone should take Jerry Jones’ phone away from him before he, like a lonely, desperate soul recently jilted from a relationship, dials up the Prescott camp and offers Dak half of Arlington to sign a long-term deal.

The Cowboys didn’t have Dak Prescott and his 371.2 passing yards per game.

And Ezekiel Elliott‘s two fumbles — which came in a three-play span in the second quarter — got the Cowboys in a hole they couldn’t dig out of without their star quarterback.

“I don’t think we can use that as an excuse,” Elliott said of playing without Prescott. “I’m just going to keep saying it over and over. I started the game out with two fumbles, gave the ball away and that gave them all the momentum they needed to go and take off. I want to say I’m sorry, and this one is one me. I need to be better for this team.”

The Cardinals used Elliott’s two fumbles for touchdown drives of 54 and 27 yards and a 14-0 lead.

Elliott now has five fumbles this season, losing four. No other running back even has three.

Prescott was crying as he was carted off the field. The 27-year-old was then taken to a local hospital and is expected to undergo surgery for a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle on Sunday night.

OMG!!! DAK!!!!!!!! what a horrific injury!!!!!!!!!!!!

Prescott was running against the New York Giants when he was dragged down from the side by cornerback Logan Ryan. His leg got pinned underneath him awkwardly as Ryan wrestled him down, and as he sat on the ground after the tackle the television audience got a clear look at his right ankle bent in a way it shouldn’t bend

according to Elias Sports Bureau, which relayed that no team since 1933 has lost a game after scoring 39 points and surrendering zero turnovers. In that 87-year span, teams rolled up a 440-0 record.

Now it’s 440-1. And that one win is the first Cowboys victory of the McCarthy era, coming in a moment when Dallas truly needed it.

Cowboys cut key free agent addition in safety Clinton-Dix
The Associated Press The Associated PressSep 3, 2020, 8:33 PM
FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys released safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on Thursday, cutting ties before the first game with the free agent they hoped could help fill the void of several losses in the secondary.

Clinton-Dix didn't make it to the regular season despite being reunited with first-year coach Mike McCarthy. He played for McCarthy for four-plus seasons in Green Bay.

The 27-year-old former Alabama star, seen as a potential starter alongside Xavier Woods when he agreed to a deal in March, was demoted during training camp. Darian Thompson took over his first-team reps. Thompson started four games for the Cowboys last season.

Clinton-Dix was the most experienced safety on the roster, but executive vice president of personnel Stephen Jones said the Cowboys could add another one before the opener Sept. 13 at the Los Angeles Rams.

Second-year player Donovan Wilson is the only other safety with NFL experience on the roster, but McCarthy has preached flexibility among all the defensive backs. Several cornerbacks could be considered for work at safety.

Clinton-Dix signed a one-year deal with $2.25 million guaranteed, but his release will give the Cowboys $1.5 million in salary cap relief.

The Packers drafted Clinton-Dix 21st overall in 2014. He had 14 of his 16 career interceptions with Green Bay, including a career-high five in 2016. The Packers traded him to Washington during the 2018 season, and Clinton-Dix spent last year in Chicago.

His signing came after Dallas lost three-year starter Jeff Heath to the Las Vegas Raiders in free agency. Byron Jones, who played safety earlier in his career, was another free agent departure, to Miami.

WELL this is news!!!!!!!!! no Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders or mascots allowed!! smh
In addition to cheerleaders and mascots, sideline sports and news reporters, and pregame reporters will also not be allowed on the field level during games.

“There is no game day entertainment personnel allowed on the field this season. However, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders will be permitted to perform on the end zone touchdown decks during the game,” said Charlotte Jones Anderson.

The Cowboys plan to allow fans in the stands, but have not announced at what capacity limit.

The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders have been America’s Sweethearts since 1972, when they first graced the field at Texas Stadium.

After not coming to terms with the Cowboys on a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline, Dak Prescott told Jori Epstein of USA Today: “I’m a Cowboy and couldn’t be happier.”

He surely would have been happier with a long-term deal.

But neither side seems to be harboring animosity.

“We had a great visit with him at the deadline,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the team website. “We pushed to try to have a few more changes here and there to see if we could get it done. But he’s got such a great outlook on the Dallas Cowboys, our football team, and he’s ready to go out and win a Super Bowl, which would only create more value for him, more value for the Cowboys.

“So we’re fired up about it and still have nothing but 100 percent belief in Dak and his future with the Cowboys, and that we can ultimately get a deal done. He’s special. As Jerry [Jones] and I have said, we are 110 percent behind him, and ultimately feel like we’ll get this done.”

The sides talked the day of the deadline but couldn’t make a deal happen. It’s one of the few times in Jerry Jones’ ownership of the Cowboys that the team didn’t get a contract worked out when it really wanted to work out a contract.

The Prescott camp decided the Cowboys’ five-year offer contained a percentage of guaranteed money too low for a five-year deal. The quarterback’s negotiators wanted a four-year deal.

“I don’t want to use ‘close’ in terms of negotiations. You either get a deal done or you don’t,” Stephen Jones said. “We didn’t quite get it done. I wouldn’t put blame on either side. It’s just one of those things when you’re talking about a deal as big as this is ­– for our team, not just for Dak but our entire team, the ramifications that it has – we certainly want to get it done right. I know he’s respectful of Jerry and myself of what we’re trying to get accomplished, just as we are with him.”

Jones cited the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of the financial landscape.

In any event, Prescott will play this season under the franchise tender of $31.4 million. The sides can revisit a long-term deal after the season, but it will cost the Cowboys $37.68 million to tag him in 2021 if they can’t get it done.

“Certainly, we’ve got nothing but respect for Dak and his representation in terms of what they’re trying to get out of the deal,” Jones said. “They certainly want a shorter deal. Historically we have, as management, wanted longer deals because it’s more cap friendly and we’re able to spread some things out and keep some players. At the end of the day, and Dak understands this, that’s what we’re trying to do.”

Cowboys confident they ultimately can sign Dak Prescott long term originally appeared on Pro Football Talk

(CNN)There will be no preseason games for the National Football League this year, according to an open letter published Monday by Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The mandate comes as every aspect of sporting world has been affected by coronavirus. Earlier this year, the NFL had to hold its draft virtually to avoid the spread of the virus. The season is set to begin in September.

Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence was one of several NFL players to speak out on Sunday over his concerns regarding the NFL’s plan, or lack thereof, to start the season amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

While he’s due to report to training camp next week, Lawrence said he may not show up.

Lawrence’s wife is pregnant and due in October, and he wants to put his family first.
“This is absolutely serious,” he told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Don’t get me wrong. I want to play football so bad. I have been wanting to play ever since they shut down everything. But this is not like any other sport. This is a full-contact sport. We are sitting here once inch off the football. That means the offensive tackle is going to be right there breathing right in my face the whole time.

“I have to go home and lay by my wife and kids right after that point. It’s no way possible any man should sit here and jeopardize the health of his family and his household over a game.”

Training camps are set to start opening this week, however plenty of prominent players in the league — including Drew Brees, Russell Wilson, J.J. Watt, Malcolm Jenkins and more — slammed the NFL for seemingly not having a true safety plan in place. Among their biggest concerns are questions over how often players will be tested for the coronavirus, what happens if a player tests positive, a training camp acclimation period and a “strong and fair opt-out clause for those at higher risk or those with family members at higher risk.”

WELL CRAP!!!!!!!!! I'M NOT HAPPY NOW!!!!!!!!! :'(

FOX SPORT W/ MARTIN ROGERS

In today’s FOX Sports Insider: After Dak Prescott and the Cowboys failed to reach a long-term deal, could the QB’s time in Dallas be coming to an end?
Dak Prescott’s deal-or-no-deal saga has rolled on for 18 months now, and after ultimate proof that there is no true consensus of his worth between the team and the player, there is a lot to unpack.

One certainty we now know is that Prescott is willing to back himself to the hilt. Another is that by doing so, he could land himself a stratospheric paycheck down the road, if things go smoothly. And the last, inevitably, is about how much longer he has in Dallas, with a future divorce now looking highly likely, if not inevitable.

“I’m a Cowboy and couldn’t be happier,” Prescott told USA TODAY Sports’ Jori Epstein on Wednesday night. “I look forward to working (alongside) coach (Mike) McCarthy, the staff, and my teammates to be the best team we can be in pursuit to our goal of a Super Bowl.”

That’s for now and the words are both admirable and appropriate. Prescott will, after all, make $31.4 million under the franchise tag, a steep rise from the $4 million combined that he made in his first four seasons. He’s not going to be poor, he’s no longer going to be significantly underpaid, and he will indeed be doing all he can to make the Cowboys shine.

However, having seen teammates like Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper and several offensive linemen get paid at the top end of the current market rate, there is surely some lingering dissatisfaction that a new contract couldn’t get over the line.

He’s not going to say as much, but his brother Tad did, on Twitter.

“There is a reason I was never a Dallas Cowboys fan growing up or before they drafted Dak,” Tad Prescott wrote. “After today, who knows how much longer I’ll be cheering for them.”

According to the NFL Network, Prescott and his agent Todd France turned down a four-year extension worth at least $33 million per season and including $100 million in guarantees. After Patrick Mahomes locked in a blockbuster deal, Prescott wanted to be paid in excess of the Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers deals that were struck two years ago, and push himself past the $35 million mark.

That didn’t happen, and now Dallas might have missed their chance. Having gambled last year, and doing so again now, Prescott may have so much to gain from betting on himself next year that there is no amount of money that could snare him long-term.

“I believe that’s going to end up with Dak Prescott playing for a different team in 2022,” FOX Sports’ Nick Wright told Colin Cowherd on The Herd. “He’s now rolling the dice again. What makes sense to me is that he would do it one more time and position himself to be the most sought after free agent in NFL history.

“He will be 28 years old and a true free-and-clear free agent. It’s going to be a full-blown auction. He is going to end up becoming the richest player in NFL history.”

Here is how most NFL theorists now lean towards this playing out. Prescott plays on the franchise tag this season, then contract talks again get nowhere after the 2020 campaign. At that point, the following year’s franchise tag of around $37 million would be a figure the Cowboys could live with and Prescott would play it out, before diving headlong into the free agent market.

Talk of Prescott leaving Dallas is now everywhere. Cowboys fans, flushed with optimism prior to the deadline, struck a gloomier tone once it expired.

“I'm still holding out hope that they are feverishly negotiating as we speak,” FOX Sports' Skip Bayless said on Undisputed as time ticked by on Wednesday.

Not so, apparently, or not feverishly enough.

“There is plenty of blame to go around for the impasse, but know this: This could be the beginning of a slow road to a divorce between the Cowboys and Prescott,” wrote ESPN.com’s Todd Archer.

Blame is a strange word to use in all of this. It is hard to blame the Cowboys for refusing to budge from their optimal value on a player. If there is blame to be meted out there, it needs to come later, if Prescott has shown that his top price now would actually have been a bargain.

Blaming Prescott for not signing is a non-starter. Since when do we hand out blame for an athlete backing themselves with such sincerity and confidence that they are prepared to leave eye-watering sums on the table?

It was a game within a game, but it’s not a blame-game. It was a drawn out game, a fascinating one, and - truth be told - occasionally felt like a never-ending one. It’s not over yet, but the seeds for a parting of ways have now been set and it is going to take a lot to knock that journey off course.

Bill Barnwell, ESPN: “This decision doesn't impact solely the 26-year-old and his employers. The Prescott news, in fact, affects teams and players around the league both now and in the offseason to come ... NFL contracts are about leverage, and when players can get multiple teams to negotiate against one another in free agency, it produces a bigger contract than what those same guys would get when they're able to negotiate with only one team.”

Kevin Patra, NFL.com: “Turning just 27 later this month, barring a Joe Theismann-type injury, Prescott is actually now in a position to milk more money out of his situation in the next few years. Top-10 QBs don't come close to hitting the open market. Prescott has a path to get there if he so chooses.”

Charles Robinson, Yahoo Sports: “Late August in 2019 is when Dallas should have pinned its hopes to a four-year tack-on deal with numbers that would have matched the four-year, $140 million extension the Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson signed ... this is where the impasse started. And it was only going to be broken by someone surrendering something of significant value. Dallas wanted a discount and control. Prescott wasn’t giving up both. Eventually, the math was the only language that mattered — and Dallas let that math get way outside of its comfort zone.”

The NFL has taken its next scheduling step in response to the coronavirus.

After the cancellation of the Hall of Fame game between the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers, the NFL plans to cut its four-week preseason in half, Pro Football Talk reports. Games scheduled for Week 1 and Week 4 will be canceled, according to the report.

A nationwide spike in coronavirus cases has prompted concerns that plans to restart sports are in peril. So far, the NFL has given no indication that it plans to alter its regular-season schedule. The league’s stance since the pandemic took hold in the United States has been that the games will go on.

Aside from plans to close off lower-level seating in closer proximity to players to make way for digital advertising, the league has not publicly wavered on its plan to allow fans in the stands.

In today’s FOX Sports Insider: Dak Prescott signs a $31.4 million franchise tender with the Dallas Cowboys, but questions about a long-term deal still linger ...

There is a game of chess going on in Dallas this summer and Dak Prescott just tossed out an unexpected gambit that might just give him extra control over the situation.

The Cowboys’ quarterback and the franchise have been engaged in a quirky little dance for a while now, a weird situation where Prescott wants to stay with the team, the team wants Prescott to remain with them, but neither side is minded to give a shred of unnecessary ground on the journey to a fresh deal.

There has been speculation on how this would all play out for months, but one thing that few predicted was what took place on Monday, when Prescott formally accepted the $31.4 million franchise tag that was extended to him.

Signing the tag has a number of effects. It means that Prescott loses the leverage of being able to hold out, taking things deep into training camp and ultimately show up a few days before the start of the season without surrendering a cent in salary penalties.

It also does what the tag says on the label — it guarantees that he will get paid, and how much, for the forthcoming season.

But this is a saga of tactical nuance, a mental, emotional and contractual battle with a lot of levels to it. By taking the franchise tag, Prescott may actually have improved his chances of getting the most favorable long-term deal, sooner.

How is that possible?

Prescott and his team have perhaps used some next stage thinking when it comes to this move. By taking the franchise tag, they remove the leverage the Cowboys have of possibly rescinding it. Had that happened late in the discussion process, when other teams already had their rosters set, Prescott’s value on the open market would have been limited.

Smart move or not, it was one few foresaw, as highlighted by former Pro Bowl running back Brian Westbrook’s comments on First Things First.

“I’m surprised that Dak signed this so long before the July 15 deadline,” Westbrook said. “You had up until that point to get a long -term deal. He wants to go find out and figure out that new offense. He wants to show you he is the type of leader that deserves this contract.

“He has been the face of that franchise. He has backed the Cowboys into a relative corner by saying ‘okay, I am going to come in and have a great season, and when I do, I am going to expect a much bigger part of your cap.’”

The cap, and what may happen to it, shapes up as forming part of Prescott’s positional strength. Accepting this sets his franchise fee for next season at $37.7 million, a higher number than any player in the NFL currently makes. The salary cap has increased by at least $10 million for the past seven years, but the effects of the global pandemic are such that no one expects that to be repeated this time.

Which is why, now, Jerry Jones might feel like getting a long-term deal done has a greater sense of urgency to it. Despite Prescott signing the tender, that could still be ripped up if the sides come to a meeting of the minds between now and July 15.

However, two sides can play the game of positioning and posturing, and the Cowboys arguably do it better than anyone.

“No one has defended Dak Prescott more than I have,” wrote Undisputed’s Skip Bayliss on Twitter. “But he and his agent are still asking for more than he deserves. Accepting the tag is a strategic dare to push Jerry Jones toward caving before (the) July 15 deadline. He won’t. Dak must compromise, at least a little.”

This certainly could be the case. However, having backed himself by playing out the 2019 season for $2 million, he now wants to get paid like not just an upper echelon QB, but what he probably envisions as back salary. He wants to set a new bar for QB cash beyond Russell Wilson’s $35 million a year, and install a record that would probably last until Patrick Mahomes inks a new contract worthy of a bona fide star and Super Bowl champion.

Though the franchise decision was a genuine and real development, there is still a lot we don’t know about the intricacies of the situation. According to the Dallas Morning News, the possibility remains that the parties are actually close to a deal, and Prescott’s move was a backstop to afford him an extra layer of protection against a preseason injury or illness.

Because this is the Cowboys, every aspect of the Prescott decision will be dissected and analyzed. There will be a rush to try to figure out who won this particular encounter, and who came out the wrong side of it.

It is a lot more intricate than that. Prescott had a small piece of implied leverage, and he used it. It only works if it gets him the result he wants. It is not the end of the game, it is just the latest move.

It is a weird reality, that the person who will have more impact than any on trying to get the Cowboys to the Super Bowl, and the owner most invested in making that happen, are currently locked in a struggle that sees them trying to outwit each other.

That’s football, and that’s business. The lazy perspective would be to say that Jones knows business, and Prescott knows football. In truth, each man knows both, which is why we are in this spot, and why the chess match continues.

Coronavirus: Ezekiel Elliott, several Cowboys and Texans players test positive for COVID-19, per report

members of the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans may have been affected by this recent spike. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, several Cowboys players and Texans players have tested positive for the coronavirus.

None of the players are believed to have been in their team facilities, and the teams have been following the proper health protocols. Rapoport says that one of the players who tested positive is Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott. Per Patrik Walker of CBS Sports, Elliott is asymptomatic and doing well. He was tested as a precaution

yeah he just needs to sign a contract already! smh

What We Know:
Despite some of the recent additions, including a veteran backup with over 130 starts, Dak Prescott is still the focal point of the position – and even the entire team.

Sure, he hasn't signed his franchise tender yet, but it's an exclusive offer from the Cowboys and don't expect anything to change – other than him either signing on the dotted line or finalizing a long-term contract that will end all of this uncertainty regarding the Cowboys' most recognizable player.

The team has until July 15 to get a long-term contract completed, otherwise Prescott and the Cowboys won't be able to renegotiate until the following March. At that point, he could test the free agency waters or Dallas could give him another franchise tag, which would be even more expensive and likely cause even more drama between the two sides.

As it stands now, the Cowboys seemingly have no plans to shake up the position – despite signing Andy Dalton over the weekend.

The Cowboys have made it clear from the start that Prescott is their quarterback of the future. At this point, the two sides just need to come together on a long-term deal or Prescott signs his tender.

Either way, nothing has changed in terms of the direction the Cowboys are taking.

rut ro....... I was kinda wondering why they picked a QB in the draft........ not my Dak!!!
nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooo

In today’s FOX Sports Insider: The Cowboys' decision to sign Andy Dalton is all about having options in Dallas

The chatter is plentiful surrounding the Dallas Cowboys right now — nothing new there.

Agreement, though? That’s in drastically short supply.

Not only is there still no accord between the Cowboys organization and Dak Prescott on what is hoped will morph into a new, long-term contract, but no one can quite figure out the meaning and undertone of owner Jerry Jones’ latest move.

In fact, as this most unusual of offseasons rumbles forward, no one can even concur on whether Jones’ procurement of Andy Dalton as No. 2 quarterback carries any level of hidden message at all — and the disparity of opinion is striking.

To some, landing a veteran signal caller who could potentially step in and fill the void in a proven, stable manner is the Cowboys’ way of saying that they won’t be held ransom by Prescott, and have shown it by recruiting a viable alternative in the event of a holdout.

The other line of thinking is that the signing is nothing of the sort, that Dalton is being acquired to assist Prescott and serve as a quality backup at a cost made all the more favorable because the former Cincinnati Bengals QB hails from Texas and was keen to be back there.

“Signing Andy Dalton doesn’t send any sort of message to Dak Prescott,” wrote David Moore in the Dallas Morning News. “The Cowboys aren’t insulting their starting quarterback or drawing a line in the negotiating sand. Dalton is the backup, pure and simple. There’s no need to wait for a public proclamation from Jones or head coach Mike McCarthy. The contract makes it clear.”

Dalton’s deal is worth around $3 million, plus incentives that could take it as high as $7 million. On the surface, that’s hardly the kind of investment expected for someone the team thinks will play a lot of meaningful snaps, and it’s only about a fifth of what is being offered to Prescott.

Prescott is officially out of contract at present; the Cowboys have used the franchise tag on him, but he has not yet signed the one-year, $31 million tender. There is until July 15 to agree to an extension, and if one is not forthcoming by that date, there are two choices: Prescott must either play under the franchise tag or sit out the season altogether, like Le’Veon Bell did with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2018.

Jones is desperate for the Cowboys to thrive and savvy enough to know that, having come to deals with Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper, the way he handles this period could determine the likelihood of the franchise’s success over the next few years.

Prescott threw for 4,900 yards and 30 touchdowns last season but could not lift Dallas to better than 8-8, even in the dreadful NFC East, the league’s worst division by a distance. Could it be, then, that Jones is turning the screw, just a little bit?

“I now feel far more hopeful that Dak Prescott will sign with Jerry Jones sooner than later and not play under the franchise tag,” FOX Sports’ Skip Bayless said on Undisputed. “The reason for that … is Andy Dalton. This will motivate Dak to make a deal. To compromise a little bit. This deal will end up far closer to Jerry’s final offer than to what Dak has been holding out for.

“Dak is going to see the handwriting on the locker room wall, that Jerry now has a viable alternative. Jerry will not flinch to go forward with Andy Dalton. I am hopeful Dak will see the light, swallow a little pride.”

And that seems like the plainest truth in Dallas. The Cowboys love Dak. They want him to be the QB that leads them back to the promised land. He just hasn’t been that guy yet — and having Dalton around gives the Cowboys options. Leverage, particularly these days, is a very valuable thing.

Prescott has gotten some of the things he wants from Jones, like the drafting of Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb in the first round of this year’s draft. But he hasn’t yet gotten the kind of money he desires, remuneration that would likely put him at the top of the National Football League’s quarterback earning pile.

The QB market is red hot, with prices continuing to escalate and a new market to eventually be set when Patrick Mahomes signs a new contract in Kansas City. Prescott, having made a little more than $2 million per year to date, is determine to cash in.

“The Cowboys are extremely out of line,” Cowboys legend and Prescott’s friend, Dez Bryant, tweeted. “Pay Dak.”

Eventually, Prescott will get paid. For now, though, his route to the kind of money and status he is seeking just got a little thornier.

Maybe Jones was simply trying to get a good guy at a great price in Dalton, but the ensuing reaction means he’d have to be blind not to see how it might benefit his most critical negotiation.

These are strange times, as the NFL continues to prepare for a season that no one quite knows what it will look, sound and play out like.

There is uncertainty everywhere — not least in Dallas, where for now, the hunger and hype continues to outstrip the on-field product.

Here’s what others have said ...

Peter King, NBC Sports: “I think that is a brilliant signing by the Cowboys, getting Andy Dalton for one year between $3 million and $7 million. You might think I’m overstating ‘brilliant,’ but Dalton is a solid football guy, a football-loving, shut-up-and-play guy who will be good either playing or backing up and supporting Dak Prescott. He won’t be great. But tell me which backups in the NFL are great? And tell me which backups in the NFL quarterbacked their teams to the playoffs five times? Smart signing, particularly when the Prescott fate is so uncertain. If Prescott boycotts the offseason program in his contract stalemate and Dalton is there every day, who knows? Would Mike McCarthy dare start Dalton when the real games start? I doubt it, but it’s a storyline to follow.”

Mike Florio, Pro Football Talk: “Dalton’s arrival gives the Cowboys a QB1 during Dak’s decision not to participate in the virtual offseason program. Dalton also protects the Cowboys against what could be an even more aggressive move by Prescott. For franchise-tagged players, one deadline matters most: July 15. After that, the player cannot be signed to a multi-year deal. So at that point, there would be no reason for Prescott to stay away, right? Even though the Cowboys and Prescott couldn’t do a long-term deal after July 15, the two sides would be able to negotiate different terms on a one-year deal. He could ask for more than his $31.4 million franchise tender. Or he could seek a commitment that the Cowboys won’t tag him again in 2021. Regardless, Prescott can stay away until just before the start of the regular season and earn the full amount of his franchise tender, like Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell did in 2017. If Prescott does, the Cowboys will need someone to run the offense during training camp and the preseason (if there is one). Dalton becomes that guy, giving the Cowboys protection in the event Prescott does indeed stay away until days before the regular season commences.”

Todd Archer, ESPN: “Here’s what the addition of Andy Dalton is not: a sign of unhappiness with negotiations with Dak Prescott and a way to leverage a long-term deal. The addition of the former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback is about making the roster better. This is how the Cowboys used to treat the backup spot when Tony Romo was the starting quarterback. Without Drew Brees last year, the New Orleans Saints won with Teddy Bridgewater. Matt Moore went 1-1 as Patrick Mahomes’ injury replacement in Kansas City. The Cowboys would be extremely happy if Dalton never saw the field for any meaningful snaps in 2020. But just in case, they prepared themselves for the possibility.”

So overall how did the Cowboys do in the draft? It's clear the new head coach is boots on the ground.... just hoping we get to see the start of the NFL season this year!

you can just read this or click the link below and see the grades of all the teams -

Dallas Cowboys
Grade: A

As long as Dak Prescott is in the fold, this is clearly one of the best offenses in the NFL. Adding CeeDee Lamb at the 17th overall selection in April was an outright coup. He’ll join a unit that already featured a pair of receivers who both cleared 1,100 yards last year in Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup. Ezekiel Elliott is still one of the better backs in the league and now has an explosive change-of-pace mate with Tony Pollard on the roster. Mike McCarthy claims to have learned many lessons in his year away from football after he let the Packers offense go stale. If that’s true, this team will be so fun to watch.

Guess I should have known better than to read this post. I haven't watched the draft yet - I thought you just had some news on Jace Prescott's death. A spoiler alert would have been nice.

Dallas Cowboys announce that Dak Prescott's younger brother, Jace has passed away he was 31 yrs old.

Jace Prescott, the family's middle brother, was also a football player, manning the offensive line at Haughton High School from 2008-10. He remained a large part of his brother's burgeoning NFL career, and was even featured in a Chunky Soup commercial just last year, along with Tad, the third sibling.

Of course, the family's matriarch, Peggy, lost her battle with colon cancer in 2013, a wound that hasn't truly healed for the Cowboys QB. This absence, much fresher, is devastating to the family unit's recovery.

I'm not worried about that. Most who left CAN be replaced, especially with this WR class. What concerns me more is A) Dak may not show up for camp (though I doubt Jerry will let THAT happen) and B) Dak is making a bad impression by not adhering to Gov. Abbott's restrictions during this time. Being young doesn't make you immune and though I don't believe half of what the national media says about this virus, it still isn't a good look.

It didn't take long for the gravity of NFL free agency to hit the Dallas Cowboys.

While the team kept quarterback Dak Prescott off the market by applying the franchise tag and re-signed wide receiver Amari Cooper, several starters departed in the first few days of deals. Among those who left: wide receiver Randall Cobb (Houston Texans), defensive end Robert Quinn (Chicago Bears), defensive tackle Maliek Collins (Las Vegas Raiders), cornerback Byron Jones (Miami Dolphins) and safety Jeff Heath (Raiders).

The Cowboys did make their moves after the losses began to mount, as they signed defensive tackles Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe and safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

But the sequence still left Mike McCarthy with several holes to fill as he prepares for his first season as a team, and owner Jerry Jones has made it clear the organization expects to make a significant postseason push right away

lking-dontari-poe-161519176.html

The Cowboys added one former Panther to their defensive line last week when they signed Gerald McCoy and they are in discussions with another one as this week gets underway.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team is talking about a deal with Dontari Poe. Per the report, it could get done by the end of the day on Monday.

Poe spent the last two seasons with the Panthers, but missed the final five games of last season after tearing his quad. He had 39 tackles and five sacks during his time in Carolina.

Rapoport’s report came in response to a tweet by colleague Jane Slater indicating the Cowboys were also considering players like Ndamukong Suh, Damon Harrison and Mike Pennel as additions to the defensive line.

FRISCO, Texas -- After securing Dak Prescott for at least 2020 with the exclusive franchise tag earlier in the day, the Dallas Cowboys prevented Amari Cooper from leaving via free agency later Monday by agreeing on a five-year, $100 million deal.

The Cowboys' goal of keeping Prescott and Cooper was made somewhat more difficult with the passing over the weekend of the new collective bargaining agreement, which allows them to use just one tag, rather than two.

To keep both players, the Cowboys made Cooper the second-highest-paid receiver in the NFL in annual average, after Atlanta's Julio Jones, who makes $22 million per season. A source told ESPN's Josina Anderson that Cooper's deal includes $60 million guaranteed.

The Washington Redskins pursued Cooper earlier Monday and tried to pry him away before Dallas re-signed him, according to Schefter. A Redskins source directly involved in the negotiations told ESPN's Ed Werder that Cooper turned down an offer from them that would have "put him right there with Julio [Jones]."

Last summer, the Cowboys made Ezekiel Elliott the highest-paid running back, and in order to get Prescott to sign a long-term deal, they might have to make him the highest-paid quarterback in the game, surpassing the $35 million per season of Seattle's Russell Wilson.
A team source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that the Cowboys' offer to Prescott is worth more than the deals for Jared Goff ($33.5 million per year) and Carson Wentz ($32 million), but Prescott is seeking a four-year deal, and the Cowboys are asking for a five-year deal.

Under franchise tag rules, the Cowboys have until July 15 to sign Prescott to a multiyear contract, or he will have to play the season under the tag. By placing the exclusive tag, which is expected to be worth $30 million to $33 million, on Prescott, the Cowboys have prevented other teams from signing him.

This is the fourth time since 2014 that the Cowboys have used the franchise designation, and it's the first time they have used it on a quarterback.

In 2015, the Cowboys used the tag on wide receiver Dez Bryant, but they were able to sign him to a five-year, $70 million deal before the July 15 deadline. They placed the tag on defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence in 2018 and 2019 before signing the Pro Bowler to a five-year, $105 million deal in April 2019.

Last offseason, Dallas hoped to sign Prescott to an extension that would have guaranteed him nine figures, but the quarterback bet on himself, choosing to play for $2 million in 2019. He responded with career highs in yards (4,902) and touchdown passes (30).

Cooper made $13.9 million last season on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal, but the two sides didn't really engage in contract discussions until recently.

After his arrival from the Raiders in a trade for a first-round pick in the middle of the 2018 season, Cooper helped transform the passing game for the Cowboys. In 2019, he caught 79 passes for 1,189 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns. He was named to the Pro Bowl for the fourth time in his career.

Cooper, who turns 26 on June 17, was on pace for one of the best seasons by a receiver in team history through the first nine games of 2019, including a 226-yard effort against Green Bay, but then his numbers trailed off significantly.

Cooper caught just 26 passes for 341 yards and a touchdown in the final seven games, and in Week 12 against the New England Patriots, he was held without a catch for the first time since he joined Dallas.

In 2018, the Cowboys won seven of their nine games following the Cooper trade to win the NFC East and make the playoffs. He caught 53 passes for 725 yards and six touchdowns with the Cowboys, including a 217-yard effort against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Prescott-to-Cooper connection has been one of the best in the NFL since they became a tandem. On multiple occasions, both players said they wanted to sign long-term with the Cowboys.

I don't think things will be as tight as the mainstream media wants us to believe. It's amazing - they complain that Dallas is known as America's team YET they do more than their part to encourage it! It's all for ratings. Most of the time, I just tune them out...especially Jason Whitlock and Rob Parker. Such haters!

The problem with Dak is he wants a four-year deal while the Cowboys want a longer deal. I personally believe it's so Dak can renegotiate in four years for an even bigger salary once the cap goes up...and in four years, who knows where it will land?

They have plenty to get Amari done, especially since he knows he didn't do his best last season and since he has such a rapport with Dak. The only one I'm a teeny bit concerned about it Byron...but then, Jerry and Steven are masters and manipulating the cap and finding loopholes. I firmly believe they'll get it done.

Dallas Cowboys (8-8, cap space: $75.9 million)

Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Byron Jones. The most attention-fed team in the NFL has three of the biggest names on the potential free-agent market. Jerry Jones doesn’t mind spending money, but there are cap considerations. And it doesn’t seem there will be a lot of wiggle room to add any outside talent. The Cowboys always get the headlines, and that will be especially true this month.

hmmmm I won't even feel bad standing up for my Cowboys..... LOL

The Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers are no strangers to each other. Not only are they two of the most storied franchises in NFL history, as well as two of the most successful, but they've also been in each other's way a time or two -- to say the least. It's an age-old rivalry that may not have the bloodlust it once had, but you can still feel the tension in the air when the two take the field to battle each other. The NFL is banking on that electricity to be present to open the preseason, and there's plenty to suggest it will.

It's been announced the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game will feature the Cowboys and Steelers locking horns in 2020, and you could've probably guessed that would be the case. Why? Well, in a year that will also see legendary former head coaches Jimmy Johnson and Bill Cowher both be [finally] inducted into Canton, it stands to reason the NFL would capitalize on their immortalizing by pitting their two former teams against each other.

This stretches the preseason to five games for both clubs though, and that can either be a positive or a negative, depending upon which side of the coin you're looking at. The added game provides the teams more opportunity to assess their roster before being forced to slash it from a robust 90-man head count to a mandatory 53 at the end of August, but also opens players up for more exposure to potential injury -- a current point of contention in the collective bargaining agreement.

In the end, it'll be what it'll be, and the NFL has what can only be described as a perfect matchup for the Hall of Fame Game this preseason, considering the induction of Johnson and Cowher. It won't be the last time the Cowboys and Steelers meet in 2020, already set to meet at some point during the regular season at AT&T Stadium.

The NFL will release the full preseason and regular season schedule in April.

ProFootball Talk on NBC SportsMarch 8, 2020

Via Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys have offered quarterback Dak Prescott a contract with an average value of $33 million per year. Because Prescott currently has no contract, the so-called “new money” value of any deal he accepts will match the more practical assessment of a new contract: What that new contract is worth, from the moment it’s signed.

For Prescott, both numbers under the reported offer would be $33 million. For Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson‘s most recent deal, currently the richest in league history, the new money was $35 million per year. The total value at signing was $31.4 million per year.

Of course, the more important number comes from the amount of money that is truly and fully guaranteed at signing. Per Watkins, the offer to Prescott carries $105 million in guaranteed money generally. Which says nothing about signing bonus or other fully-guaranteed payments at the time the deal is signed.

Wilson has $107 million guaranteed in his deal, $70 million of which was guaranteed at signing. For Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the general guarantee was lower ($98.7 million), but the full guarantee at signing was higher ($79.2 million).

For Prescott’s deal, the devil will reside in details like signing bonus and fully-guaranteed salaries and fully-guaranteed roster bonuses and other fully-guaranteed payments. Regardless, an average value of $33 million would put him at the top of the all-time contractual stack.

Until Patrick Mahomes signs his new contract, of course.

Biggest Question: Can the Cowboys Maximize Ezekiel Elliott?
The deal is done, so there's no use worrying about it. After a lengthy contract dispute, the Cowboys signed Elliott to a six-year, $90 million contract extension last August. Even if he doesn't see the end of that deal, he'll be part of the Cowboys' plans for the foreseeable future.

And that's just fine, provided the Cowboys can get the most out of him. We already know Elliott is durable, so there isn't much reason to be worried about his health.

Instead, they need to be worry about his usage. If a running back is going to hit the salary cap at this kind of cost, he needs to be the focal point of the offense in more ways than one. He needs to be valuable as a runner and as a receiver, and the Cowboys need to manage that while also helping him maintain himself so he can avoid completely wearing down.

It's a challenge, but it's completely feasible. Elliott is one of the sturdiest, most talented backs in the NFL. The Cowboys simply need to utilize him that way in order to make sure this contract ages well in the coming years.

Free Agent Scorecard
Here's where the rubber truly meets the road for the Cowboys.

They enter the offseason with a list of 30 (!!) in-house free agents they must attend to before and while also surveying the landscape outside of Dallas to see who deserves an offer to join the team in 2020. The longer it takes to get a deal done on Prescott, the more challenging that becomes, though. With the team currently more cash-rich than they've been since the inception of the current expiring CBA, the Cowboys could flip a few switches and have upwards of $100 million in cap space, but just because they can afford to pay their cornerstone guys and still have huge chunks of pie left over doesn't mean they want to.

As such, they'll continue to follow their usually frugal approach to "outside" free agency with an eye on retaining as many key players as they can in their given financial blueprint -- i.e., pay based on value assessments and not how much money is on the table -- and then lean on their mostly solid draft-building ability to take care of the rest.

How Much Will Cowboys Trust OL Connor McGovern in 2020?
by Jess Haynie

Last April, the Dallas Cowboys surprised many by spending their third-round draft pick on Penn State offensive lineman Connor McGovern. Now we can see why Dallas made the move to help prepare for 2020, but can the Cowboys really trust McGovern after missing his entire rookie season?

Drafting McGovern last year looks brilliant now that Joe Looney and Xavier Su’a-Filo are about to become free agents. Dallas was clearly trying to cover themselves at backup guard and center by adding Connor, especially given their salary cap needs at other positions.

Remember, the 2019 NFL Draft came on the heels of Looney being Dallas’ 16-game starter at center. Dallas made the playoffs that year despite missing Travis Frederick and Joe’s stock went up throughout the league.

Now we’re about to hit 2020 free agency and Looney, rightfully so, should be looking to cash in on that 2018 work. He’s still just 29 and good centers aren’t easy to find. It’s hard to imagine some NFL team not allowing him to compete for a starting role.

That departure would mean Dallas losing their best backup at both the guard and center positions. The Cowboys clearly drafted Connor McGovern a year ago hoping, at the very least, he could fill that void in 2020.

Unfortunately,a pectoral injury knocked Connor out of all but two days of training camp in 2019. He should be good to go this year but didn’t get the development time that Dallas had hoped for.

Still, as an interior offensive lineman drafted in the third round, McGovern was seen as having immediate starting potential. There was even a thought last year that he might push Connor Williams for the starting job at left guard.

Given that, even with the missed time last year, could the Cowboys still trust McGovern to at least be a primary backup?

It’s an important question as we continue to get down the road with Travis Frederick and Zack Martin‘s careers. What’s more, Connor Williams has missed eight games over his two years in the NFL.

Bottom line; if the Cowboys hand the backup role to McGovern, there’s a strong chance he will have to play in a critical regular season game.

So is it enough to just let Connor McGovern inherit Joe Looney’s job? Can the Cowboys trust a redshirt rookie with such an important role or will they need to make an additional move to cover themselves this year?

Whatever Dallas chooses, it’s a decision that could have a major impact on the 2020 season.

DALLAS —

The NFL offseason is finally starting to get underway, things are happening around the league, and the rumors swirling around the Dallas Cowboys are picking up. As it does every year, things begin to gain ground at the NFL Combine, where contract talks usually begin to heat up.

And for once we’re not even musing on the negotiations for QB Dak Prescott, CB Byron Jones, or even WR Amari Cooper, although Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did mention that the team would be talking to their representatives while in Indianapolis.

Instead, the buzz coming from Jones that provided the most intrigue over the last few days has been from commenting about wide receiver Dez Bryant and the possibility for him to return to Dallas where he remains the all-time leader in touchdowns receptions.

Bryant hasn’t been shy about lobbying to come back to play for the only organization he’s ever known in the past few weeks. Now, however, the push to reclaim the star on his helmet actually appears to be gaining some momentum.

Jones mentioned that he has thought about the idea of having Bryant back “a lot” and then proceeded to say exactly where some of those thoughts have occurred in a way that only Jerry Jones can.

Putting Bryant back on the field to catch balls from Prescott is an interesting proposition, but no one appeared to be taking the possibility seriously until Jones spoke. Bryant was once one of the most feared receivers in the league, but injuries robbed him of his dominating ways during his last few seasons in Dallas. Most Cowboys fans still revere Bryant and his time with the team, as does Jones, making his return a viable option.

There are more than a few questions that need to be answered if a potential homecoming with Bryant is to be believed. The biggest one is probably whether or not new head coach Mike McCarthy feels the same way as Jones and the fans about having Bryant on his team.

The Dallas Cowboys' focus on retaining wideout Amari Cooper and extending quarterback Dak Prescott could come at a cost.

Cornerback Byron Jones is reportedly not expected to receive the franchise tag and will become a free agent when the new league year begins March 18.

According to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys and Jones' camp came to an understanding Friday:

"During a meeting that was characterized as amicable, there seemed to be a shared, underlying understanding that Jones will hit free agency, a source said. Jones can begin negotiating contracts with other teams on March 16 and formally sign a deal elsewhere as soon as March 18 upon becoming a free agent."



Placing the franchise tag on Jones isn't an option since the Cowboys will need a fallback plan if they're unable to agree to a deal with Prescott or later Cooper, who is projected to become one of the highest-paid wideouts in the game.
