I wish so too. He still might... kinda. The Cowboys are offering him an one-day contract to officially retire as a Cowboy, something we only do for Cowboy greats. 

 

I hope he accepts the offer. He is a Cowboys legend and one of the best pass rushers in NFL history. It's only right he goes out a Cowboy.

 

I was one of those who was happy for D-Ware getting a Super Bowl ring; he deserved it. Just wish it was with the Cowboys...

Patriots have resigned Dont'a Hightower. Really happy to have him back. I unfortunately don't see Malcolm Butler coming back, which is unfortunate, because most of their championship teams have been based around strong secondaries and I don't know if I trust Stephen Gilmore yet.

With the Seahawks signing Eddie Lacy, does this mean they are out of the running for Peterson?

Probably.

LOL, because Tony Romo played in one series against Philadelphia last season, he earned a $64.11 bonus. Not even kidding. This is hilarious.

This reminds me, what part of a players salary is paid out during preseason?

Cowboys lose two CB as Brandon Carr to BAL and Morris Claiborne to NYJ.

 

 

Ngl, I'm pretty stoked about the Carr signing.  Schefter saying it's 2 yrs/$12m with an option for 4 yrs/$24m.  Not cheap but not exorbitant either for a reliable, veteran cornerback.

 

The Wizard of Oz has done it again.

Maybe Carr can play worth his contract. Because he was probably my Dad's hated player in the secondary. Says Dallas overpaid for him when they signed him in FA in 2012.

 

I'm a bit disappointed by Claiborne leaving. A bust in name only; he just couldn't stay healthy. He showed glimpses of potential; but that potential was just lost; adrift in a sea of injuries.

Vikings sign Latavias Murray to a 3-year deal.

 

I can now easily see Christian McCaffrey going to Oakland (or Green Bay) in the draft. It seems like a no-brainer.

Sucks to lose them both. Carr was a solid #2 and Claiborne was excellent when healthy, but he was never healthy.

Yeah, i figured he wasn't going to set the world alight.  But hey, we really only needed a #2 as Jimmy Smith, when healthy, is pretty darn good.  We were rolling with Tavon Young as our #2 corner last year (side note, good player, underrated rookie imo, but too much too soon).

It's good from the contract side of things. Carr was a workhorse; so he can stay healthy. It's just his coverage skills are subpar at best.

 

But, he's on the cheap; and there's nothing wrong with that. It makes you look smart when you get great play from a player who was signed for on the cheap.

He's a bust since they moved up to get him and gave the Rams their 2nd rounder (which they moved to CHI and turned out to be Alshon Jeffrey). Could've stayed at 14 and drafted Dre Kirkpatrick.

 

That was six picks after Jenoris Jenkins, who had red flags going in, went to the Rams with Mychal Kendricks  and Bobby Wagner picked at 46 & 47.

I'm actually slightly confused....

 

Is Murray going to wear 28 for the Vikings out of respect of Peterson? He sent out a message saying why he wore 28 (Fred Taylor mainly, but also Peterson).

I think it's moreso the former; a sign of respect from Murray to Peterson.

I'm not sure how taking a guy's number who was essentially just cut is a sign of respect - seems more like rubbing it in that he's been replaced.  Especially if the team has any intentions of retiring it or withholding it for a period of time, the number should remain out of circulation.

 

Like many, I don't think Adrian Peterson deserves to be shown any respect by anybody, and it's silly for someone to even say that they want his number for that reason, but my point remains the same either way.
