We may be in the same boat soon.
Maybe, but I dont think it will be that bad..

I dont see Bridgewater going for anything more than 20 per year, most of the teams are pretty well set at QB now

Kamara will need an extension next offseason, along with Peat, we can still drag Lattimore along a few more years if needed on his current deal

I think Drew comes back for a couple years. Maybe he'll give us a break again with a 2 yr/50 mil deal. But let's say he retires. I don't think Teddy would sign a longterm contract below market value just because he's unproven. I think he would want a 1 year 15 or 20mil contract. And then if he has a great season, go for the 30mil+ everyone else is getting.

The only way around having one of the highest paid QBs, RBs, and WRs is to draft a replacement for Drew or AK.

What QB tier would Dak be on? To me he's a tier 3, maybe even tier 4 QB.

Tier 1 - Brady, Brees, Luck, Wilson, Rodgers, Mahomes

Tier 2 - Watson, Rivers, Big Ben, Baker, Wentz, Goff

Tier 3 - Jimmy G, Stafford, Ryan, Cousins, Dak?

Tier 4 - Carr, Cam, Darnold, Trubisky, Winston, Mariota

He's not a $40 million a year QB.

Dak didn't even perform until they got Cooper added to the fold and the Dallas offense struggled mightily until Coopers arrival...Dak would have to put together a deep playoff season for the Cowboys to be comfortable enough to pay that.

I agree. I’m a Dak fan but he has issues. His qb rating is inconsistent.

A 30mm a year qb has to he tops in accuracy, td/int ratio and qb rating overall and Dak simply isn’t that guy. He’s not even close. A 40mm guy better have a ring

Problem for Dallas

I'm not trying to throw shade on Dak... But I think $30 Million a year is too much... You can make a legitimate argument that he's the 5th best player on his own team (and he deserves top 5 QB money?)

I don't see how Dak can be tier 4 on any standard - some of those guys are really struggling and/or haven't had anywhere near the success Dak has had. Carr is a huge question mark after starting fairly strong. Mariota might lose his starting job. Darnold (edit) who knows. Trubisky just isn't there yet and might not get there. Winston can't stay healthy.

Avg. annual pay of tier 3: $28.125M

Dak's career rating is 96.
