    FWIW, Jerry has finally cracked Todd Mcshay's 1st rd Mock Draft projection at 32 to the Seahawks

    Ugh please no. As a 49er fan I don't want to deal with rooting against him or worrying about him. What a terrible way for it to all end between me and him.

    You & I will just have to disagree with that.
    Personally, I don't see Manziel making it past Cleveland @ #4 and he may even go @ 3 to Jacksonville. But I really just don't see any way that Dallas is going to draft a QB, given their other more pressing needs and the fact that they just committed over $100 million to Romo.

    I think the OT is more important plus I think if we can get a guy like Jordan Matthews in the 2nd round we may be alright.

    I don't think he's ready to play yet.

    Fair enough. But Nick Saban begs to differ.

    And you don't draft a guy in the first round and sit him for 4 years. Dallas has $55 million in guaranteed money due to Romo and their restructuring of his contract to minimize cap hit goes out the window if they try to cut him. Every bit of that money then hits the cap and cripples the team for the next few years. I just don't see it happening.

    We have to remember Jerry Jones is more interested in sales and entertainment than results, so I wouldn't be shocked if Dallas took him.

    @jeffgt14 I see WR and DB as more important. We need impact players in those spots. We don't have a 2 type WR, let alone a number 1.

    Because Jerry Jones runs the team.

    *sigh* Jerry Jones may be a lot of things but one thing he isn't is completely stupid.

    The $13.5 million they just gave Romo as a signing bonus, he's going to try & recoup. That still leaves $41.5 million in guaranteed money, spread out over the next 4 years. That's over $10 million per year in guaranteed money. If you cut him, every bit of what you still owe him hits your cap...and then you can't even afford to sign your rookie draft picks that year and stay under the salary cap.

    The ONLY way I could Dallas taking Manziel in the first round would be if Dallas were willing/able to trade Romo to Houston for the first pick in the draft so they could then draft Johnny Football. I'd put the chances of that happening as < .01% because I don't think Romo fits the profile of what O'Brien wants as a franchise QB.

    Well he hasn't exactly acquitted himself as a smart executive.

    I completely agree with your logic and understand how the salary cap works.

    Or they could let him sit behind Romo for a year or so. It's not that outrageous.

    I stand by my point. Jerry Jones runs the team. If he wants to make it happen, he will make it happen.

    NOTE: This is not me predicting it will happen in case anyone tries to interpret it that way.

    No, I get your point and I didn't mean to suggest you were predicting it. And FWIW, I think Jerry has proven to be "questionable" in his decision-making. There's no way I'd have locked up Romo for that kind of money for 6 years. But they did.

    But the point I was making is this: they have to play Romo for 4 years to eat through that guaranteed money. You can't afford to draft Manziel and either sit him for 4 years...or draft Manziel, sit him a year and then sit your $16 million per year QB as a backup to Manziel.

    If they want Manziel they have to figure out a way to move Romo onto someone else's books. But even if they do that, they take a significant salary cap hit.
