I remember a game years ago where some obscure running back ran for 200 yards or so...Tony Seragusa was like: "I never even heard of the guy!"

Not the guy you give a long term deal to.  Gotta prove he can stay on field 

You could say the same for Bell who has been suspended for weed ... More than once I believe. And yet the Jests paid him like he was a choirboy.

 

Somebody will always pay for a star.

 

I'd bet that the Freak and Gordon both get solid deals from their current teams.

bell at least had two straight seasons and for now this upcomng will be the third where he is not facing a suspension.  Zeke got in some trouble again this off season and i dont think is facing suspension but i know he met with goodell. you're right that someone will pay him but the guy hasn't stopped getting in trouble. Bell seems to have stopped getting in trouble.

Do the Cowgirls want to go into the decisive “is Dak a franchise QB” season without his biggest asset? Intriguing.  

Perfect time to do it.

Who do these running backs think they are?  RB's just aren't worth what they used to be, get over it.

 

Well that why we are talking much lower rates than most positions

Yep. I have no problem with young running backs doing what they can to maximize their earnings. This could be his one chance to cash in. And with the element you mentioned, he's got serious leverage.

There is a 5 million dollar gap between the 3rd and 4th highest paid RB's in the NFL.

 

That's a shocking revelation.

I think the fact that he’s still on his rookie deal makes it different from the Gordon situation in San Diego.  In my mind the NFLPA is in a bind on Zeke.  They collectively bargained to control rookie wages in order to provide more of the pie to vets.  Will the NFLPA support him holding out?  The Cowboys have already exercised the fifth year option on the existing contract, Zeke now has two years left on this deal.  Tough call given the production in rushing and receptions with Zeke.  I think my priorities would be Dak and Amari first followed by Zeke.  Tough call.

With his suspension history, he should play on good faith. Dudes a ticking time bomb and any team would be an idiot to give him long guaranteed money. 

 

That contract would need to have conduct clauses 

 

This x10000000. Well said, took the words right out of my mouth---err fingertips.

 

Honestly, the guy is a moron scumbag. Maybe be a model citizen and hold out, don't be a complete waste of life and expect a team to extend your contract.

 

Sure he's a great running back, but there's just so much more to it. Also he's like 12 years old, had some good seasons, maybe become a vet and then act like this, kid.

Bills fans: Teams would be stupid to pay even top running backs.  If they we smart they’d just trade them away and draft their replacement on day 3 before they have to pay them.  They break down early anyway.

 

Also Bills fans:  We love Shady.  Happy to have him.  So what if he’s still one of the highest paid RBs in the league?  The contract was fair - he is a premier RB after all.  Poor 2018 season?  That was the OL’s fault.  He’ll be fine.  Besides, we don’t have anyone that can adequately replace him.  Yeah, I know we drafted Singletary, but that was in the THIRD ROUND.  He can’t do what Shady can.  So what if he’s over 30?  He’s still got it.

Most on here didn’t agree with the money Whaley paid Shady. However the Bills have no cap issues and have no need to save money by cutting him. Single Gary is small and comes from a nowhere school. He might be great but it’s a very big if. And the fact Allen came from Wyoming was a very big question mark too.  One that hopefully will be answered this year.

I wonder if Dallas ends up trading him.  Zeke, while a very good RB, is a head ache off the field.

 

They should trade him to the Seahawks for a 4th round pick.

He is very good. But his OLine is better! Some of these guys need reality check. Only the Giants' Saquon Barkley is so damn good he is worth the money and transcends his blockers.

 

For example, I love me some Shady and hopefully he's still got it, but last year with a mediocre OLine he could have been as good as ever the results would have the same dismal ones.

I don’t think you’ll find that’s true with over half of this board

He’s a clown because he is trying to make as much money as he can playing a position that teams don’t value anymore?  I get he has done dumb things but this is exactly what he should be doing.  He has leverage and teams have no loyalty to players, especially rbs.  

 

The Cowboys are in a tough spot but they will play him because Jerry loves scumbags.

The double standard is what I was alluding to.  Many people here will explain away whatever the Bills do and rip others for doing the same things.  Your post is a pretty good example of that.  Also most here didn’t have an issue with Shady s deal.  He was integral to that offense - as Zeek is to Dallas’s.  The two situations are very similar.

 

I understood what the Bills were doing trying to win with Tyrod, Shady and defense.  IF that’s the plan, then having (and paying) a back like Shady is necessary.  My problem was with that being the plan.  They needed a big rebuild around a new FQB.  Dak is a better QB than Tyrod but I’d want better for my team.  He MIGHT be good enough though.  If Dallas thinks he is, then they need a back like Zeek and they have to pay him.  The alternative is to start over and that’s a tough sell to fans. 

 

As for Gary, I didn’t mean that I think he’s ready to take over. I was just pointing to how often people post things like “just draft a RB in the fourth or fifth round and plug him in”.

Dunno.  I’d like to see the numbers on that. It sure seems like the majority have been against teams paying the last 3 or 4 RBs looking for big, new deals.  Also seems like a majority here were okay paying McCoy.
