    Looks like the Cowgirls are getting ready for that uncapped year.

    The guy is going to be 35 in December. He might hit the age wall before the first year of his extension even starts. WRs usually hit the age wall hard and fast in their mid 30s. All you have to do is look at guys like Rod Smith, Tim Brown, Cris Carter, Isaac Bruce, Eric Moulds, etc.

    If he was 30, I'd have said this deal was very dallas friendly.
    Given that he's 35, and its a 3 year 27 mil add on (since he would've been paid 7 mil this year without that); I see the first 2 years as being 'safe bets', and the last 2 being huge risks on Dallas's part.

    I'm also not sure he would've gotten that kind of money next offseason from another team as he still hasn't proven that his 'nice teammate' thing is transferable

    I don't even know if the first two years are a safe bet. I don't know if I would bet the farm that TO will not hit the age wall this year. Smith went from 1106 yards and 6 TDs in 2005 to 516 yards and 3 TDs in 2006. Cris Carter went from 1275 yards and 9 TDs to 871 yards and 6 TDs the next. There is not usually a slow decline with WR. It happens fast and hard.

    This much money for a 35 year old receiver? Is Jerry Jones paying this much cash because he thinks TO will continue to produce at the same level for two more years? Or is it a fee to keep him from becoming the distraction he has been elsewhere, and was starting to hint he would be once again?

    The latter sounds much more likely.

    In our flag football league, whenever anyone drop a pass we're like "dont pull a T.O. now" Good reputation to have.

    Jones knows after the lockout year he won't have to pay.

    Jerry Jones and TO both deserve what they are getting: each other, and no SB rings. And SonofaBum Phillps as their HC.
