Do you guys really think Dak's new contract will be in the $30 million/year range as most of the reports about it are suggesting? What do you guys think? - DEVON DAVIDSON
Rob: It’s hard to speculate because those discussions are kept in-house, and contract talks are usually fluid. We do know that Russell Wilson (Seattle) and Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers) have sort of reset the market in the $34/35 million per year range. Cowboys COO Stephen Jones has said repeatedly that Prescott and other stars (Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott) deserve to be paid very well, but the team also wants to make the best deals they can to ensure they can field a full championship-level roster.
Bryan: They don’t tell us the numbers for these contracts until they actually sign them, so to say it’s $28 or $30 million/year does us no good. So I don’t want to even guess. When they get the deal done, I’ll be more than happy to offer my opinion.
I was wondering if there is any news on Randy Gregory? Could he get back in time for training camp? - DARRELL OLBRYCH / BROOKELAND, TX
Rob: No news from the Cowboys or the league on Gregory’s suspension. I’m sure the Cowboys are holding out hope that he’ll be reinstated at some point this year, but they also understand that it’s an “indefinite” status right now. It’s tough because Gregory can’t be around his teammates participating in the offseason program, per the rules of his suspension, after playing well last season.
Bryan: I know that Gregory is working out away from The Star in order for making a a return, but I haven’t heard anything from any sources or from the league when that date might be.
