    The voice of reason appears as always via @supafly . I think you are spot on here. I really don't understand why these teams are looking to "lock up" their quarterbacks so darn fast. Once in a great while you get a Joe Flacco situation, but for the most part you are much more likely to regret the early extension (Derek Carr comes to mind.) The thing is, I've never seen a team unable to retain their franchise quarterback by waiting until the offseason before the contact expires, and even waiting until the contract expires gives plenty of security with franchise tag options. I think quarterbacks have a lot more pressure to sign and stay in their cities, and many of them have a lot emotional ties to the area and are unlikely to move.

    Last year I was really critical of the Packers for doing this with Aaron Rodgers (making him the highest paid) when they could have waited AT LEAST one more year, and now the Chiefs are looking to extend Mahomes after year 3 and talking about the first $200M contract. In both cases, they are just giving the quarterback his market value, even though the early nature of the extension SHOULD allow for a discount by simulating an early free agency. The Cowboys are idiotic if they do the same with Prescott here, especially since he isn't a superstar and, as you've alluded to, there's just no reason to when you have another year to evaluate his play with almost zero downside. Would anyone be shocked if this guy just face plants at any time?

    Dak is going to get his money. If Cousins can get $30 million a year so will he.

    Tom Brady's contract strategy only looks so good because BB makes it work and uses the saved money to build teams. If he didn't, Brady would look like a sucker, or nobody would care.

    If Elliot does hold out, then 2019 will not count as an accrued season for him.

    I think he’d likely bluff a bit to see if the Cowboys would blink, and I’m guessing that they would. Maybe refuse to show up for TC and even possibly into the first few games. If I remember correctly, he could still hold out for approximately the first couple of months and earn the accrued season.

    (Edit: Miguel corrects me that a player must report 30 days in advance of the first regular season game, which is usually sometime around the end of the first week of August).

    The fourth paragraph is applicable.

    Agent's Take: What's next for Aaron Donald, Le'Veon Bell and other NFL holdouts
