Latest on Cowboys’ Potential Trade Interest in S Jamal Adams

What’s the latest on the Cowboys trade interest in Jets S Jamal Adams?

News is a little slow for most teams around the NFL right now, but fortunately not for the Dallas Cowboys. There are still plenty of top storylines to keep all of us around Cowboys Nation entertained, the latest of which is the impasse the New York Jets and Jamal Adams have hit in contract negotiations.

The Jets and All-Pro S Jamal Adams have hit an impasse on talks on a long-term extension, per ⁦@RichCimini⁩. https://t.co/eUP7FiU4wG

Contract negotiations between the New York Jets and their All-Pro Safety Jamal Adams continues to captivate Dallas Cowboys fans. The thought of adding a true difference maker to the backend of the Cowboys defense is a move that could put this team over the top.

Today, I want to share with all of you what I’ve heard and read in regards to both Jamal Adams and the Dallas Cowboys. Hopefully it puts things in a little better perspective in regards to all of the trade rumors and speculation surfacing around the Internet almost daily.

*Side note: Calvin Watkins reports no interest from the Cowboys right now

Jamal Adams’ Value With Jets and Cowboys

When it comes to a players value it differs from team to team. Jamal Adams’ value in New York is a little different than it would be in Dallas. For instance, the Jets believe Adams is a cornerstone player they can build around. Unfortunately for them, he’s also their best player with very little talent surrounding him. Good, even great, players have minimal impact on bad teams. Even a talented player like Adams can’t drag the Jets out of NFL purgatory without help.

Adams’ value in Dallas is an entirely different story. The Cowboys are far superior to the Jets as far as talent is concerned. Adding Jamal to the backend of their defense not only makes their secondary better, but vastly improves the overall defense as well. His addition could very likely equate a few more wins a season. That could be the difference in making the playoffs or not, or entering the postseason with a first-round bye or as a 3 seed.

He should be valued even more by the Cowboys because they are currently revamping their secondary. The majority of their experienced defensive backs (Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis, Xavier Woods, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix) are all playing on one-year contracts. Having Adams on the backend to help with the transition to younger players like Trevon Diggs and Reggie Robinson could prove to be invaluable.

Rumored Trade Compensation

Per NFL Network’s Michael Irvin, the New York Jets are seeking a first and third-round draft pick in exchange for their All-Pro Safety Jamal Adams. Irvin is close with Adams, but how he would know the Jets asking price is beyond me. I highly doubt they came out and told him so he could announce it to the world, but let’s pretend it’s factual. For a player of Adams’ caliber, that’s a bargain.

The Dallas Cowboys were rumored to be willing to part with a first-round draft pick and Cornerback Anthony Brown last year prior to the 2019 NFL trade deadline, so parting with an additional third-round pick definitely seems plausible. In fact, taking into consideration the Cowboys projected 2021 compensatory picks, they could have an additional third-rounder according to overthecap.com.

Overthecap.com projects the Dallas Cowboys receiving a total of four 2021 compensatory draft picks: a 3rd for Byron Jones, a 4th for Robert Quinn, a 5th for Randall Cobb, and a 7th for Jeff Heath. Knowing they had those additional picks in their back pocket helped land them Center Tyler Biadasz in the 2020 NFL Draft, who they traded up for. That extra draft equity could come in handy again to acquire Jamal Adams via trade.

Sending their 2021 first-round draft pick as well as one of their two third-rounders to acquire a talent like Adams’ is something the Dallas Cowboys could absolutely consider doing. But, we all know bringing Adams aboard is more than just the draft capital it would take to acquire him. There’s also the money it would take to sign him to a long-term contract extension to consider.

Jamal Adams’ Contract Demands?

Jamal Adams hasn’t been shy about wanting to become the highest-paid safety in the NFL. Eddie Jackson currently holds that honor after the Chicago Bears signed him to a five-year, $58.4 million contract extension back in January 2020. That equates to about $14.6 million per season which is probably the baseline for what Adams is seeking. His annual salary could end up being northward of $15 million a year.

That’s a steep price tag to pay for a safety considering how devalued the position has become as of late, but one the Dallas Cowboys or New York Jets will have to pay if they want to keep Jamal around. That could be a tough pill to swallow, especially for the Cowboys. They are still trying to work out a long-term extension with their QB, Dak Prescott. Signing Dak and moving around money if needed to acquire Adams is absolutely doable, however, the uncertainty of the 2021 salary-cap has to be taken into consideration as well.

Due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, it’s unknown how much revenue the NFL will be able to generate for the 2020 season. If fans are unable to attend games that will without a doubt negatively impact revenue, meaning teams will have less to spend next offseason. That kind of unknown could put a damper on giving into Adams’ demands right away. They could however convince him they will take care of him in time, much like the Los Angeles Rams are doing with CB Jalen Ramsey after acquiring him via trade last year.

Hometown Discount for the Cowboys?

As we already talked about, a contract extension for Jamal Adams is expected to be quite pricey. It’s no secret he’d love to play for the Dallas Cowboys, but would you be willing to get the Cowboys a hometown discount in order to do so? According to Mike Fisher, Adams could definitely be open to the idea.

“There are those close to the situation, from a variety of angles, who whisper that Adams, a DFW native who continues to spend time here in the offseason and talks openly about his Cowboys love, might allow a financial compromise should the Jets grant him what at least part of him surely wants:

A trade to the Dallas Cowboys”.

This is purely speculation on my part, but I highly doubt Adams would offer a discount to any other team around the league. To stay in New York, the Jets are going to have to make him the highest-paid safety in the league. A chance to return home – he attended Hebron High School in Carrollton, Texas less than 10 miles from The Star – in order to play in front of friends and family could sway him to accept less money.

A “hometown discount” could definitely be something to keep an eye on if/when the Cowboys and Jets open up trade discussions. It could very well be what earns him a ticket back home to play for the team he grew up watching.

What do you think the Dallas Cowboys should do about Jamal Adams?

  1. As much as I hate to say it but what if the Cowboys let Dak walk and take that money to beef up the Defense and OL? Draft a further QB next year and just let ole Andy enjoy playing with some real talent for a change! With the talent the Cowboys have on offense even Jerry could win some games at QB! Remember the bold move that Jimmy and Jerry pulled with Herschel Walker? Remember the what the results were? Is there anybody out there in Cowboy land that disagrees with me? Let me know! P.S. I really like Dak but I really liked Herschel too! I just believe that a player can ask too much which in return hurts the whole team!

    • This is definitely some out-of-the-box kind of thinking on your part, but I don’t see the Cowboys letting Prescott walk. I think Andy Dalton could definitely be better with the talent he has right now with the Cowboys then he was in Cincinnati, but again, I think Jerry Jones and Company are all in on Prescott as their starting QB for the foreseeable future.

    • I completely agree but most fans don’t because they love offense…being a Cowboys fan I would love to see a bad ass defense for once in a very very long time…And if it meant Dalton at QB for a couple years so be it!!

      • I think Adams could very well be the missing piece for the Cowboys defense. I don’t think it would take making Andy Dalton the starting QB though.

    • Thanks for the reply! I too believe that Jerry and son are all in with Dak but what if …just what if ….they were to pull the plug on Dak and free up that money for more talent on defense and a good back up blind side tackle ? Again I like Dak but just don’t think he is worth the gamble to pay him even 30 million …..at least not at this point ! Maybe if he could win more games that he don’t suppose to win would make me feel better about paying him!

      • I really don’t see any way the Cowboys move on from Dak. I think the bigger issue here is the amount of money they paid out to Zeke last year.

      • I don’t think he’s mediocre at all. Please continue to improve his game from year-to-year and I personally can’t wait to see what is able to do under Mike McCarthy’s guidance.

    • I like the idea myself, I was kind of hoping that Dallas would draft Jordan Love and let Dak walk! Dont get me wrong I love Lamb too, but would of been wild!

      • I honestly wasn’t as high on Jordan Love as a lot of people. I think he’s the definition of boom or bust. He has the intangibles, but who knows if he will ever be able to put it together.

  2. Currently I don’t see us giving up a first round draft pick for Adam’s, especially with him needing a very expensive extension coming up. What do you think of this scenario? Give them A.Brown, or D. Wilson, J. Jelks and T. Hill plus a 3rd round pick in 2021. They get some young talent and solidify their defence while we get a very solid saftey that will require a premium contract that they obviously don’t want to pay. Your thoughts?

    • Gary, I think it all depends on what happens with Dak Prescott. If they can get him signed to an extension sooner rather than later making a trade for Adams becomes more realistic in my opinion.

      I really don’t know what to make of your trade scenario. Would the Jets even be interested in those players mentioned? If they are, I think the Cowboys would make that trade in a heartbeat.

  3. Jerry Jones has never won anything without Jimmy Johnson and Jimmy’s players. Since they retired what has Dallas won? 3 Wild Card games in the past 23 years! Pathetic. Adams is a great player but he’s not worth a first round pick. The Jets can’t resign him so they’ll have to dump him for at best a 2nd rounder. I’d rather spend the money on extending Awuzie and Jordan, then possibly add a veteran DE FA. But Dumb and Dumber, Jerry and Stephen, will overpay Dak then get fleeced by the Jets and overpay Adams thus dooming us to more years of mediocrity. At least we jettisoned that phony Smiling Dopey Opie.

    • Howard, I’m going to have to disagree with you about Awuzie and J. Lewis. I haven’t seen anything from them that warrants a contract extension. I’d much rather use that money on a true difference maker like Adams. His addition not only makes the secondary better, but upgrades the entire defense as well.

    • Howard – 3rd rounder?? (LOL)…man you are self absorbed. The Jets own the rights to Adams for two years, and you can four (to 2023) with two Franchise tags, so the Jets don’t have to do anything. They’ll pay him cause he’s underpaid now, but won’t go over $14M, and they won’t renegotiate till after 2020; too many questions about the season to invest when you don’t have to. If he sits, he sits…..and he gets no money and a worse rep that Darrell MEvis.

      • I think the Jets have to be careful with the way they handle Adams’ contract negotiations. If they try to play hardball with him it will send the wrong message to the rest of the team. I personally think they have a better chance of improving their roster if they trade Adams and use that draft capital to rebuild.

  4. Texas has no state income tax whereas NY does. Maybe that would be part of any discount, like the cowboys would subtract half of the tax he would have paid in NY income tax. I’m sure he could well make that up in PR money.

    • Adams is better than anyone they will draft . Think they should go after him ASAP
      My opinion Dak should b willing to team friendly deal with all endorsements he has Idt he should get SB $ till u get one
      Understand it’s a business still yet think Dallas brass sit down with Dak and both give a little
      I mean how much u need to provide for your family If not roll with red rifle
      There’s always b a free agent QB or draft one if Dalton can’t
      Dalton not Dak buy seems like wants b here and first time in career with enough talent to show what he’s made of
      Dallas fan since 76 Time for some Football

      • Steve, I absolutely agree. The Cowboys aren’t going to find a better player with their first-round pick next year. I don’t think $ is what’s holding up Prescott’s extension. I think it’s a matter of length of the deal. He wants a four-year deal and the Cowboys want him to take a five-year deal.

  5. You’re all hoping Dalton can be Steve Buerlein part 2 but remember it was Aikman with his uncanny intermediate accuracy and leadership that pushed the team over the top. My point is, Dak is much better than most of you believe. He’s in the top 3 throwing on the move and his teammates feed off his leadership. You run him out the door and we might be looking at Chad Hutchinson/Henson, Ryan Leaf and Anthony Wright days, remember? Painful and gives me PTSD.

    • Marvin, Prescott may not have the backing of a lot of Cowboys fans but he does where it matters. Mike McCarthy came in to work with him and Jerry Jones and Company believes in him as well. He’s not going anywhere and it’s time for everybody to start getting used to the idea.

    • I highly doubt the Dallas Cowboys part ways with Prescott. However, it is interesting to think about what Dalton could do as the starter.

  6. First let’s all wake up cowboy fans. First of all the cowboys defense is average at best? Second Jamal is going nowhere. The Jets will sign him when there ready. He has two years left on his rookie deal. If they deem to move on? Well he is a super talented player. But I can’t see over paying for a position that is not high value? I love Jamal as for the comment about talent. The jets are stacking up on talent. Last time I checked we smoked your azz. The Jets will have a better record than the cowboys this year. Put that in the bank.

    • Adams has all of the leverage in contract negotiations with the Jets. He can choose to hold out and force their hand to either grant his contract extension or trade him. And normally I would agree with you about the value of the safety position, but Adams is the exception. He would be a huge upgrade for not only the Cowboys secondary, but for the entire defense. I also don’t see any way the Jets have a better record than the Cowboys in 2020. To suggest as much is laughable IMO.

  7. Yea I think Dak has potential to be a top 5 QB in league just don’t think Dalton has that upside Look at past SB wiinners most had an elite QB or at times a solid QB and an elite defense. Dallas best bet is to hope Dak continues to improve to near elite status and ride a potentially prolific offense as our defense is serviceable at best. Riding with Dalton and using that money to plug holes sounds intriguing but doubtful it happens. Due to the QB position being such a precious commodity in this league you’ll always see mediocrity be over rewarded. Its just rare to win without an elite one

  8. I like Adams. He’s an impact player. But, before giving up multiple picks (regardless if you have compensatory picks), I would like the Cowboys to try to have another good draft and upgrade multiple positions instead of busting the bank, along with missing out on multiple good players in the draft, to obtain Adams. He is a proven commodity but look what the Cowboys got in the first 60 players picked in this past draft. The more picks, the better chances of hitting on a couple of those picks to upgrade the overall talent of the team while freeing up more money to pay the stars. I don’t know why the Cowboys don’t value that position because there have been several very good safeties they could have drafted over the last decade and they passed on them. You would think that D. Woods would have made them always value that position looking at the numbers he put up in his career. Question: If the Cowboys had Adams last year, would they have beat the Jets? Good article Brian Martin.

    • Bringing in Adams upgrades the entire team more than any player they can draft next year, but I do see your point. And as far as safety is concerned, there aren’t many teams that value the position very much anymore. Look no further than what happened in this year’s draft. Not a single safety was selected in the first-round.

      And to answer your question… If the Cowboys would’ve had Adams last year I think they not only would have beaten the Jets, they would have made the playoffs as well. I think his addition to the secondary would gain them an extra couple of wins each year.

      • How do you know there won’t be any players in next year’s draft that can upgrade the team more than Jamal Adams!? This season hasn’t started yet, and you don’t know how players are gonna play this season!! There could be a safety come out in the next draft that’s better than Jamal Adams…. You never know…. And you definitely can’t say there won’t be!! There’s already about 4 or 5 safeties projected to go in the 1st round of the 2021 draft….. How do you know that 1 or 2 of them don’t up their game even more and turn out better than Jamal Adams!? You don’t!! You won’t know that till the end of this season!!

        • Adams is a proven, once in a generation type player IMO. There was a reason he was drafted so highly and I don’t see any safety being taken that early next year. That’s just my opinion though.

  9. I would think that it would take more draft capital than a 1st and a 3rd. That saying, I would offer a 1st and a 3rd and a 4th considering the comp picks next year. I mean I know the Jets won’t let the cowboys dictate that but it would be a slight overpay and that’s what it takes for a player of this caliber.

    • A 1st and 3rd is what’s being reported. I doubt the Cowboys would go any higher than that. They’d love to add Adams to the roster, but they’re not going to overpay to do it.

  10. Lots of Jets bashing in this story. What was the final score between Jets and Cowboys last year? Was it Jets 24, Cowboys 22? Yes, I believe it was.

    • How many winning seasons have the Jets had since they’ve drafted Jamal Adams? ZERO!!! If you believe they’re anything more than a bottom dweller in the NFL I’ve got some beachfront property for sale for you in Arizona. I couldn’t care less they beat the Cowboys last year. Every team has a bad game and that just happened to be one of Dallas’.

      • How many playoff wins for C-boys in last 20 years? 3. How many for Jets? 7. Difference between jets fans and Cowboys fans. Jets fans know their team needs major improvement, while C-boy fans are delusional (with help from pro-cowboy media)

        • Should we take this to another level and talk about Super Bowl wins? I think not. Honest question… Who do you think is closer to reaching the Super Bowl first, the Jets were Cowboys?

  11. If a 1 and 3 gets him, dangit Jerruh go get him, ALL or nuthin is what you started this team on . Go out swinging Joneses,a little tribute to the sci fi flick Signs……. Swing away Merrill,swing away!!!!

  12. Hard to see the Jets settling for a mid first rounder.
    The money is doable…I think he gets extended.

    Holdout…not happening under new CBA rules and I think Adams would rather play pissed off than sit at home.
    The sticking point is not the money but the timing. Douglas has to convince Adams he’ll get paid without Adams getting all butt hurt.

    • I think the longer the Jets go without extending Adams, the more he’ll want out of New York. I really think it’s in the best interest of the Jets to trade him. With more draft capital they can continue to upgrade their roster more than just what Adams’ presence brings on the field. They’re just not a good team so investing the amount of money an extension for Adams would take would be unwise IMO. They need to invest that money on players who play more premium positions.

  13. No, they are not a good team but 7-9 even against a week schedule is not terrible. A healthy Darnold and revamped OL can get them to 8-8 or 9-7 even against a tough schedule so although draft capital is always valuable, this is not a team in the very early stages of rebuilding.
    Something that could easily turn into a late first and third rounder is not very inspiring.
    And with the new CBA Adams has virtually no leverage..this is not a Bell situation.
    Douglas can wait to see what kind of season shakes out..or if there even is a season.
    I’m not sure fans’ on social media or Adams’ agents leaking his disgruntlement is going to bother Douglas a bit.

    • It’s definitely an interesting situation. I think the way the Jets end up handling it could impact contract negotiations for other players down the line.

  14. Btw, if Adams was just a box safety then the argument regarding position would be more valid. He’s obviously much more or we wouldn’t be having this discussion.

    • Agreed. I think he’s a once in a generation type of player. The Jets just so happen to use him more around the line of scrimmage, but he’s more than capable of playing in coverage and excelling there as well.

  15. This article is a JOKE
    “Adams has very little talent around him”on the #2 rushing defense in the entire NFL?
    Hows quarantine treating you?
    Top analysts keep saying Darnold is better than Dak too btw, like this week i believe
    The Jets would want
    Dallas #1 pick next year and cee dee Lamb if you really want Adams yawl

    • Yes the Jets rush defense is pretty good, but Adams is a big part of that. There’s a reason they haven’t had a winning season since Adams was drafted. They are talent deprived right now on both sides of the ball. And I don’t know what analysts you are referring to, but if you compare Darnold’s stats to Prescott’s there’s no comparison. The Jets are walking on thin ice the way they are handling contract negotiation with Adams and teams like the Cowboys could end up being the beneficiary if they’re not careful.

    • If those TOP ANALYSTS are saying Darnold is better than Dak then those analysts aren’t really top analysts then!! Look at the stats and look at how many games has been won by each and it’s obvious that Darnold isn’t even close to Dak!! And ya’ll can keep Adams!! I wouldn’t give up a more than a 3rd round pick for him let alone a 1st and Ceedee!! He’s not worth that much!!

  16. Jets players and FA aren’t going to necessarily look at this situation as relevant. Adams is in a very small minority of players entering only his 4th year getting extended. Im sure there examples but I can’t think of one trying to force his way out this early in their career.
    All the more reason for Douglas to be firm and not set a precedent….or if he trades him it shouldn’t be to Adams’ hand picked team unless Dallas overpays.

    • I actually think the opposite is true. If the Jets aren’t willing to pay a player as talented as Adams, what hope to future players have of earning a second contract. Sometimes teams have to swallow their pride and do what’s in the best interest of their players, although that’s pretty rare. I think this situation could be one of those times though.

  17. Hey Mr. Martin, firstly I’d like to say c I find it extremely cool how interactive you are in your article. Too many writers these days get even a whiff of a story line and put out some crap piece they barely even want to attach their name to. By you replying you clearly believe. With that being said, I am a jets fan and I do not see is moving Jamal for anything less than a first and second. We hold all the cards currently, and the franchise would be happy to make Jamal a player for life. The person who thinks the jets would trade Adams for some second rare talent and a third round pick is insane. Personally I could see the jets holding out for more than a first and second, maybe the cowboys arent the team to make the trade but we will easily get at least a first this time next year so why trade him now for peanuts.

    • Sean, thanks for taking the time to drop a comment. I don’t always write articles I particularly agree with, but I do try to interact with the readers as much as possible. As far as Adams is concerned, I’m just going off what the “rumored” asking price is. I’m sure the Jets would love to get as much compensation as possible, but I really don’t see any team giving up a 1st and a 2nd because of the amount of money it would take to sign Adams to a contract extension as well. I really think a 1st and 3rd is pretty reasonable, but that all depends on how the Jets feel about the situation. Is he a cornerstone player they want to build around or someone they can trade to hopefully upgrade the roster in other areas? That’s something we’ll have to wait to find out.

  18. Dak played his worst of the season against the lowly Jets. The Jets haven’t won much, since Joe Namath. I don’t trust Dak at all. He is so up and down, he is far from consistent. Adams is a true stud safety and would even make Dak look better. I say do whatever you have to do to get Adams, and let Daks agent, Mickey M. Mouse, keep asking too much for a average quarterback. Yes average! He has a couple stats but he hasn’t won Squat!! Too bad. I like Dak but hes not worth even 20 million a year. He is average. So unless we can trade him, we are stuck with an average quarterback.

    • I honestly don’t get all the Dak hate. He’s better than a lot of starting QBs in the league right now and there are a lot of teams out there who would love to have him as their starter. Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion though.

    • Apparently you don’t pay attention to much football!! If you did you would see that Dak has the 2nd most wins of any QB in the NFL…. 2nd to only Tom Brady!! If that isn’t winning, idk what is!! Idk if you’ve noticed or not, but Dak has been in the NFL for 4 years now…. This past season wasn’t his first season!! And he wasn’t the only one losing those games, it was the whole team!! So you mite wanna go back and do some research cause Dak is better than average!! He’s more like top 7 in the NFL!!

  19. Lewis and Erving will be on the 53 roster. Also, my late grandmother can punt the ball better than Chris Jones. He got’s to go!

    • I don’t know what this has to do with this Jamal Adams article, but I’ll play along. I think Lewis is at best a CB4 right now and might have a hard time making the roster. I think he could be put on the trade block. I do however agree with you about Cam Erving. His position flex to play nearly any position on the Cowboys OL could prove invaluable. As far as Chris Jones is concerned, I’m hoping he has a bounce back year. But, I do think the Cowboys need to bring in some competition.

      • Have you lost your mind?? Jourdan Lewis is one of the best CBs on the team if not the best!! He’s been the best for a couple years now!! He’s just not gotten much playing time cause he wasn’t tall enough!! He was up there with Byron Jones, if not better!! People need to start paying attention to these players!! Anybody that thinks Lewis is that far down the depth chart are crazy!!

        • There’s a reason the Cowboys extended Anthony Brown and not Jourdan Lewis. There’s also a reason why the previous coaching staff didn’t play him much and why he looks to be buried on the depth chart once again under the new staff. He’s a good player, but I think you’re giving him too much credit.

      • I want you to name 3 other corners on this roster that’s better than Lewis!? There’s no way you can cause Byron Jones was the only one who was better than him last season and even that’s debatable!!

        • There may not be better CBs on the roster, but the fact remains the Cowboys don’t believe Lewis is starting material.

  20. if Dak walks then let it be,but we’ll have that QB in the secondary that can make things happen and that’ll be an upgrade to the guys we got in FA and the draft.It’s about time we get this defense rolling again right along with the offense.I miss those types of teams we had in the 90s80’s and 70’s!!!

    • Dak doesn’t want to walk in the Cowboys aren’t going to let him too. The parameters of his contract are pretty much in place. The only thing holding things up is the number of years involved. That will be worked out in time.

  21. Agree Brad get rid of punter C Jones how many games did we lose last yr cuz of horrible special teams play. It’s the 3rd phase of the game that often times gets overlooked. I closed my eyes every time the special teams unit was on the field last y. It’s one of the worst Dallas has ever fielded yet rarely gets mentioned as a factor. Hopefully we can settle in on a PK that can make the ones he’s suppose to make and has the leg to make some 50 yarders.

    • Word is Jones played injured last season. Hopefully he’s healthy now and can improve his game. However, I wouldn’t be against bringing in some competition.

  22. There is 0, yes I said 0, percent chance that Adams is traded. The Jets aren’t letting him go and the only reason this is news is because of no live sports. Big news, all pro player wants money! Wow!

    The Jets said they wouldn’t discuss a contract extension until after the draft and then they grabbed his fifth year option. You don’t exercise the fifth year option if you’re not extending the guy because then you’re just giving away money.

    And IF, and I stress that the million to 1 chance that I’m wrong, the Jets will not settle for anything less than a 1st and a 2nd or a 1st, a notable young WR/OL and replacement safety. Don’t get it twisted.

    • How would you explain the Jets entertaining trade offers last year before the trade deadline that? Picking up his fifth year option gives them another year of control. That doesn’t mean Adams is automatically going to get an extension. And I highly doubt they get more than a 1 and 3 because of the amount of money he’s seeking for a long-term extension.

  23. I would ask Dak to sign contract offer on hand if he’s too geeky let him seek trade where they will throw money his way and use that pick ( should be 1) to get Adams . If they only get a 2 , trade a 1 anyway for Adams a d get him on board , he will be leader of this back end group for years . Use that 2 ( Dak trade ) maybe to slip back into first round if need be next year .

    Try and trade for Aarron Rogers . If can’t get done roll with Dalton . I think he can win with this team .
    Sign Desmond King CB , and Clay Mathews and let’s rock n roll and really compete for SB

  24. make prescott a LAST offer if he refuses let him walk . his new contract will cripple us for years to come . sign Newton , start him . Dalton as backup. sign clowney, get adams . go after a QB in the draft next year or year after. could get almost 3 players for DAKS CONTRACT . defense would be solid ..

    • I think the Cowboys and Prescott’s reps have pretty much agreed upon the parameters of an extension. I think the only thing holding things up right now is the number of years involved. He’s not going anywhere IMO.

  25. One diva on the team is enough. Adams is already showing his true colors with the Jets, why would we want another problem child on the team. Yes he is good, but IMHO, we have enough talent right now at Safety. Plus the possibility of a CB switching to safety. I think Worley, with his requisite size (6’1″ 215), would be a great candidate. BTW, the “purgatory” Jets beat us last year. Darnold outshined Prescott bigtime, with much less TALENT around him. Sam Darnold, IMHO, is a better QB than Prescott. Would take him over diva Dak in a heart beat.

    • Darnold isn’t even close to being as good as Dak!! He only won that game cause his defense knew what plays we were gonna run!! And he didn’t have LESS talent than Dak in that game…. The only help Dak was getting was from Zeke…. Cooper left the game almost as soon as it started and Gallup couldn’t do anything that game!! Darnold obviously had more help than that!! I’ve never heard anybody say Darnold was better than Dak…. That was the most insane comment I’ve seen on here, and there’s been some bad ones on here!!

      • I understand that you love Prescott as a Cowboy fan. I am also a Cowboy fan, probably longer than you’re been alive. But IMHO, if I put my Cowboy bias out of the picture, Darnold is JUST BETTER than Prescott, everyday day of the week. Dan Orlofsky, Mike Greenberg, Colin Cowherd, Rex Ryan, etc, etc. all say Darnold is BETTER than diva Dak. Put Darnold on the STACKED COWBOY OFFENSE, THEY GO WAY BETTER THAN 8-8, EASILY. IN FACT, DALTON CAN GO BETTER THAN 8-8, EASILY!

        BTW, why “Gallup couldn’t do anything” has a lot to do with the QB, DIVA DAK. IMAGINE LOSING TO THE THEN 0-4 JETS. A DISGRACE. ABSOLUTEY NO EXCUSE. Prescott is OVERRATED. WE WILL SEE HOW HE DOES WITH THAT STACKED OFFENSE, IF HE SIGNS. THEY GOT RID OF DEZ FOR DAK. All of a sudden Dez couldnt run routes, couldn’t separate, etc. etc. THEY BROUGHT IN COOPER and COBB FOR THE DIVA. WENT 8-8. PATHETIC. AND WITH THAT WEAK DIVISION, YOU GET 5-6 WINS FROM JUMP. NOW GOT RID OF GARRETT, he was the problem??? WE WILL SEE WHAT WILL BE THE NEXT EXCUSE FOR DAK IF THEY DON’T GO DEEP IN THE PLAYOFFS.
