Sportrac Predicts Extensions for Dak Prescott, Zeke, and Amari Cooper

The plan on handing out contract extensions to , , and at some point in the near future, but what the numbers will end up looking like is completely up in the air. Well… Maybe not. Sportrac just predicted the type of money the Cowboys could be paying their top three offensive playmakers via Twitter.

Now, I'm no expert, but I think all parties involved would be happy if this is the way the contract extensions actually went down. I know it seems like a lot of money, because it is, but it is also fair market value for the types of players Prescott, Zeke, and Cooper are for the positions they play. It's just the nature of the business.

Keeping these three together is definitely in the best interest of the Dallas Cowboys, but it also means they may have to give up on keeping someone like or La'el Collins who are both entering contract years in 2019. Losing Jones would be a tough pill to swallow after the way he played last year, but luckily the Cowboys may already have Collins' replacement on the roster.

I think it's important to remember the salary cap in the NFL continues to rise every year and even though the amount of money the Cowboys would be paying out to their top offensive playmakers seems like a lot, it may not be in a few years time. That of course doesn't make these kinds of decisions any easier, but it is something to keep in mind for future reference.

Do you think these contract extensions are reasonable?

pretty good deal daffy is definitely being offered more than he’s worth and he’ll cry that it’s not enough and when he does I’d dump him for someone that can actually throw the ball and have it actually be a catchable pass

Fine with Dak and Amari, but not Zeke. Time to let him walk after next season

I think we also have the money for Byron. I believe La’el is gone next year. Collins is making 9 mill. Byron over La’el everyday of the week. Connor Williams can take his place. Connor the Governor can fit in as guard. Spotrac says we have about 85 mill in cap space for 2020 & that is with D Law signed. By your article & Spotrac’s numbers Dak is 29mill with Amari @19mil and Zeke @16mil. That still leaves us 21mill. We definitely can sign Byron, if the Cowboys want too. Hopefully they do. Byron takes care of one side of our defense. His availability is on par with Dak’s. Byron is a great solution at corner for the next 3 or 4 years. Why make a hole in our defense when there is no need to do it?

Fans can’t dump anyone on the Boys, especially doofus fans. They are allowed to whine though.
