 But they’ve drafted extremely well so it offsets it. They will have to continue to do so. They don’t have tough decisions to make on core players. The Bills example that I used earlier is that they have to use a guy like Vosean Joseph instead of paying AJ Klein $6M. The Cowboys aren’t going to have hardly any mid-priced vets. They are going to play young guys in those spots.
 

The Bills have a lot of guys like Klein, Murphy, Feliciano, Long, Norman, DiMarco, Nsekhe, Butler, Williams, etc.. that the Cowboys won’t have. Those are the types of guys that they will have to play young guys instead of. They aren’t in a position where they have to get rid of guys like Tre, Edmunds, Milano, Diggs, Etc... Those types of players are already under contract for multiple years. The Cowboys has 7 players on the top 100 that Prisco just did. All 7 of those guys will be under contract for at least 3 more years once Dak signs. Their best players aren’t going anywhere. 

 

I'm not saying that their top paid players have to go.  I'm saying this situation is not typical.

Other teams have tried this tactic in the past with varying success.  If the 'boys want to do this it's up to them.

 

Personally (and it's just my opinion) I think it's a risky way to construct a team.

The Cowboys will most likely sign Dak and will get under the cap this season with no problems.

BUT, anyone thinking that their cap situation going forward is "ideal" is not being honest.

Cowboys are extremely top heavy next couple of years.

2021 Cap Hits below.

 

Dak:  Somewhere around 35 Million.

Cooper:  22 Million

Lawrence:  22 Million

Martin:  15 Million

Elliot:  14 Million

Their 2 Tackles:  25 Million

 

This is not typical of NFL roster construction.  

It's simple math.

This is the exact point.  Everyone understands that they already have their primary guys under contract, that does not mean they will be able to keep all the guys they have signed moving forward if they pay Dak  In fact, they for sure will not.  Each of their cap hit increases over the next few years.  Dallas better win it all in the next two years or they are looking at a total and lengthy rebuild.  I would not be putting my chips in Dak's basket but I hope they do.

Technically they could.  Whether they do or not remains to be seen.

I don't see Beane as the type of GM that thinks this is a good strategy and personally I like that.

 

These QB contracts are what they are and signing Dak or any QB like Dak is a risky proposition for a lot of teams.

Oh I agree 100%. The middle and back of their roster will be filled with young players. The Cowboys won’t have that vet depth that a lot of teams crave. That’s something that the Bills have mastered at this point (although their cap situation is the reason). In 3 years I would think that the Bills may have a similar roster or they made some hard decisions. The Bills may decide, for example, to let someone like Singletary go after his first deal. They may make the decision that the money be better used spread across multiple guys. The Cowboys basically committed to all of their good players and are riding with them good or bad.

He's not worth it. Let him walk and draft or otherwise sign your next QB.

Should they draft Trevor Lawrence, or would they be better off signing Pat Mahomes?

Yes, especially the bolded.  These tough "long term" decisions could even start next year.  My example (like your Singletary example) is that

maybe both Dawkins and Milano are not signed next year and only 1 is kept.  I hope both are signed but we will really see Beane's strategy soon.

I personally don't think they will sign Milano long term.

If Beane is a GM who values cap space over good players like half our fanbase does (luckily I don't think he is) then we are in trouble.

I do not think a player like Milano will be dumped because of money vs Cap

Dawkins? that is bit more money at a much higher level of importance.
But i think Beane brings in the competition before he he moves on from any player worth a hoot. Milano fits the bill of being a very serviceable player or better.
 

 Dak.

 do not care what Cowboys do here. Joneses can be foolish at times. Hope they are foolish again
