"The cash flow in the first three years of Lawrence's deal is that sixty five million dollars. So DeMarcus Lawrence getting a hood of money in the first three years with the Dallas Cowboys one hundred five million dollars overall for these stud pass rusher. The Cowboys are about to be in really interesting territory because while there are a lot of teams in the league that have all the necessary quantum qualities of a team that's going to run for a championship the Cowboys certainly possessed that, but it's gonna be expensive in the coming years, DeMarcus Lawrence just got paid. He's there key pass rusher. Coming up for new contracts. Amari Cooper, Dak Prescott Ezekiel Elliott Byron Jones. Jalen smith. That's the star wide out. The star QB star running back the star safety in the star linebacker on the team. And by the way. When they spent all that money on the great wall. A Dallas only Zack Martin is still there and still that guy tyrant Smith not very good at left tackle getting hurt a lot that career might be wrapping up sooner rather than later and Travis Frederick, unfortunately, met head on with a disease that kept him from playing last year. Maybe never gonna play football again. So when those guys leave you're gonna have to spend money to replace them or you're gonna have to draft excellently. So the Cowboys are about to pay not only their pass rusher, but the star wide receiver and look Amari Cooper, hit may not be looking for an Tonio Brown money, but he shouldn't take a dollar less than the Andrei Hopkins makes and that's top-five wideout money. And that Prescott if Jerry Jones has talked about paying you don't settle back make them pay you this might be the only contract that's big money contract you ever get because they're sure about you. But I don't know about the rest of the league. Oh, and there's Zeke Elliot who might be the best running back in football. And if they're gonna pay him well look at Todd Gurley look at lady on bell. And that's what they're going to pay him. So you're talking about. Top four pass rusher. Top it running back top five at wide receiver. And that's before you've signed the quarterback. That's before you've signed your stud safety before you've signed the key linebacker. That's before you replaced. Any of these guys getting old or not coming back on the offense of line? Yikes. I know Jerry Jones has got more money than God. But Roger Goodell put a salary cap on this thing. At some point. That's gotta come into play. And I know they've got about eighty million dollars cap space next year, but eighty million goes quick when you're paying a top five wide out when you're paying top running back. And then you pay a quarterback eighty million goes fast. So the Cowboys will be interesting case study on not only drafting well Lawrence a draft pick Dacca draft pick Zeke draft pick Jones Smith draft picks and trading. Well Cooper traded for draft pick. But paying those guys because they pay everybody, and it doesn't work out. All of a sudden they're in a salary cap conundrum and that could get real ugly real fast in Dallas. And then you're stuck for a few years with those aging guys that maybe aren't worth those dollars. Speaking not be worth it. Cody stood here espionage radio at coders for students on Twitter at espionage, nation radio and Twitter. The Mockus Lawrence is at twenty five sacks the past two seasons. Now, don't get me wrong. I love sack. All right and Saxon. The only thing DeMarcus Lawrence does gets a few tackles for loss here and there, and I consider tackle for a loss and a sack to be the same thing, essentially, in fact, in the right scenario tackle for a loss is even better than a sack because if you can scare them from running you force them into passing more and you're never going to scare them off passing. Not in today's NFL. It's too easy. But if you can scare them off running off, its one dimensional sometimes tackle for losses are more important. There's a free before you today, even cloudy and company when you go to negotiate with the Texans. All right. So sacks are important lost important. Twenty five sacks past two seasons. Jacob you're along for the ride here on ESPN radio. How many points on the scoreboard or worth I believe it's zero there were zero points. Would you care to guess how many touchdowns Levy on bell scored the last two seasons? He played you want me to guess, I'll let you guess total touchdowns both rushing and receiving. Oh, okay. I'm gonna go with twenty to close twenty twenty. Okay. So twenty touchdowns the past two seasons Levy on bell played and twenty five sacks for DaMarcus Lawrence and DeMarcus Lawrence is guaranteed money in his contract is worth more than Levy on bells entire contract. Sex. Don't score you points. You also put forty -fensive linemen on the field or three defensive lineman on the field and a pass rusher. You put typically one running back on the field. So help me make sense of the math here because twenty touchdowns is worth one hundred twenty points on the scoreboard. Twenty-five sacks are worth zero points on the scoreboard. You have to score more points than your opponent to win. So why are offense players? Not highly compensated like -fensive players we were chopping this up before the show because I ran some of the numbers, and I was kind of picking at this. What do you think Jacob where am I off on this because later on bell scored twenty touchdowns, and I get lazy on bells weird example to pick. Okay. Leaving on bell out of it. How many Tonio Brown? It's Brown scored at touchdown per game last year. Demarcus Lawrence than even put that up in sacks. He didn't have a sack per game. It's oneal scored a touchdown for gain. You started the game with six points, essentially, a good Antonio Brown is and yet he had to fight and scrape and tooth and nail coffers every dollar the raiders gave him and the Cowboys just handed DeMarcus Lawrence one hundred million dollars. What's up? What am I missing here? Again, you put four defensive lineman on the field you put three wide receivers on the field. Typically, sometimes to what am I missing? I think you're onto something here because offense of football is just so important to the game. I don't know how we got into this fascination with pass rushers Aaron Donald wasn't winning football games. And Sean McVeigh got there. Right. JJ watt wasn't one in football games until Shawn Watson got their perfect. It's just not the same. It's not an apples to apples comparison. I understand that. These guys can swing a game and your direction, but it is few and far between and these guys scoring touchdowns to it. For more regularly lay. The Bill scored twenty touchdowns in two seasons. Demarcus Lawrence sacked someone twenty five times in two seasons. Sacks are worth zero points. Touchdown so worth six points and DeMarcus Lawrence gets more guaranteed. Three years. Bell gets in the total value of his contract doesn't make sense. Now. Could you tell me there are more people doing what Levey bell does? Okay. I believe you. But then I ran the numbers past two seasons amount of players with twenty plus touchdowns over the past two seasons that work quarterbacks nine. Nine guys had twenty touchdowns or more over the past two seasons. Do you know how many guys had twenty sacks or more over the past two seasons? Seventeen damn near double. Twice as many dudes. By the way at a position that are twice as many people on the field because you have to pass rushers on the field all the times. Almost double the amount of people. Do what DeMarcus Lawrence does as opposed to what Levy on bell did or better example Todd Gurley who had forty touchdowns in two seasons? And even if you want to take it on the low end. How about Kareem hunt with twenty five touchdowns in two seasons? Didn't even play a whole season this year. Okay. So if Vinci someone's going to figure out that yeah, I can pay these offense of players a little bit more because there's a little bit more value to what they bring to the table. If you score more points than the other guy you win. You know, how you score you use your offense. Yeah. Damarcus Lawrence might make it easier for the offense, but DeMarcus Lawrence doesn't score. So while they paid Lawrence the Cowboys. Did they mess up and not have enough money for exactly what Cooper needs that needs and Zeke needs and even then if they do that because they've paid Lawrence and he doesn't score points. Make it harder to find those guys to stop the.

"Get trapped in. We're back at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis eighty. It's pro football talk live Florio. Changes about coming here without traffic. Walton? Ready to take on the raiders pick. Our pit. That's Stephen Jones the Cowboys COO, and they gave up their first round pick last year to get Amari Cooper. Here's the difference though. When you use a first round pick on a receiver. You get him for four years at relatively low price you get the fifth year option. It comes into play with Cooper. They're inheriting him as he enters the fifth year option. Right. He's a top ten pick. It's like thirteen million. Plus, so they have to factor that in the franchise tag next year. That's all going to be a factor when it's time to do a contract, and he's represented by the same guy who represented Khalil Mack. That's Joel Siegal. So he's not gonna go cheap or easy. No hometown discount. It's not as hometown. He just got their Amari Cooper is going to want to get paid. That's just one of several guys to the Cowboys are gonna have to pay its Cooper is to Marcus Lawrence. Dak Prescott Ezekiel Elliott Byron Jones, you gotta nucleus that you're going to have to pay if you wanna hold that team together and you've already got offense lineman. You've paid. I mean, look this is one of the byproducts of having a good team with a lot of great players have to get paid at some point. Some you're gonna have to make tough decisions, and you're gonna have to let guys go. Oh and reload with draft picks were making a lot less money. Well, I mean at the end of the day, I think the Cowboys are probably happy to be in this position with Amari Cooper. Right. Because that means the trade worked out there. Oh, wow. Okay. He was worth what we traded. And and he showed he proves his value with what he did there. You know, the last five six weeks of the season. I mean, he was phenomenal. He was the go-to guy. But yes to what you're saying. I would hope that they did the research of those type of situations are about knowing he's going to have a fifth year option that we're going to have to pay him if he performs well here at the end of the season all of those things, and hey, they should be happy. They they want Dak Prescott long-term they need to give him a support system. They saw they give them no support early last year. And Dak Prescott struggled the offense struggled. They got one weapon at the receiver position. And it changed around their offense and their team altogether. Right. Prioritize the three big names on offense guys who are moving in on new contracts. Amari Cooper, Dak Prescott Ezekiel Elliott who's one who's to who's three. Oh, wow. Okay. That's a really good question. Mike time. Yeah. I am buying time. Because of course, I wanna say Zeke Elliott one, and I'm with Ezekiel Elliott one. I will. I think he's the second. Best running back in football. Okay. I think sake. Barkley is the cream of the crop right now. But I do think Ezekiel Elliott is the guy that makes that offense go the thing. I worry about in that situation that made me pause. There is the style of in. Which is equal Elliott players. You watch football, right? It's car crash after car crash after a car crash you pay him, and he turns into Todd Gurley where he's got this mystery need. I worry about so Dallas gas to make sure they're not on the hook for too much of a long term contract. They need to find like a four year deal. I would say so I would go Zeke one I would go Dak Prescott to and then Amari Cooper three. And I do think Dak Prescott should be the future of this franchise quarterback. You make him one house you not one then. Well, I know because that's where you have to balance out Zeki Elliott's the more talented player but Dak Prescott gorse has a little more long term value. And I just think where you are right now. I guess I go Zeki because the team is built around the run. I think they know that a good running back burns bright for a short period of time. And then burns out they let DeMarco Murray walkaway. And I think with Elliott, I think I think they'd like to push this back get them another five-year tag him one time. And then say, okay, we've used this guy up see later. Yeah. And that's where I was going back and forth in my brain about how you would because it is. When you get a great quarterback. You've got him for fifteen years. Yes, you're right. And whether it's right or wrong, warranted or unwarranted day. Believe in Dak Prescott. And we talked earlier he elevated his play in the postseason. He did against Seattle and against the Rams when when Ezekiel Elliott was not finding openings in the run game Prescott still was getting it made big plays to to Amari Cooper. And some big situations down the stretch. So yes, I am with you with the Dak Prescott. And you know what? Mike, I I got to admit, I I guess I probably prioritize wrong. I would probably go Dak Prescott one Zeke Elliot to see changed your. I think you're right because the point you made, and you know, with the franchise tag being available which again at the running back position is just so unfair. I really feel for the running backs here. You are car crash after car crash after car crash. Hey, you're not allowed to go on the free market and get what you're worth yet. We we gotta keep you hear one more year. So we can put you in four hundred more car crashes, and then you're not worth what you were the year before that's really a I mean, that's like a human issue to me in the NFL. That's. How it works now running back. That's how it works. And that's why it's.
