Why does DC.com have Newmans contract not expiring until the next year along with Owens and Columbo?

is there any chance in hell Newman opts out? Or is it a team option? Nothing would make me happier than the gmen signing him away from the cowboys. Actually I'd be happy just seeing him leave the NFC east. He would command more than nate clements on the free market and I find it hard to believe his agent hasn't at least brought the point up.l

He has one big issue, he is actually old. Got out of college at 24 I think.

May get as much per year but not the years per se.

Newman would be only two years older and significantly better.

Im sure we'll keep him around. I know he is going to be expensive, but I think he likes being a cowboy and he is too great and too consistent of a player for us to just let walk away. Especially with questions on our defense year in and year out, we just can't afford to let corner become a bigger issue than it has been.

I luv him but we need to avoid signing big name players at "high twitch" positions toooooo far past 30.

Once a corner is past 32 ...... they are safeties at best.

meh, I think the fact that Newman is a "young" 28 will help him get a big deal. Again with jj as your owner I doubt you guys lose any top players, but as a giants fan you can understand that I'd love to see guys lose some top guys, I.e. Newman.

I would have to think that Newman will void his contract if he has that opiton. Sometimes you can only avoid upon hitting certain escalators. After only getting a 6.5 million dollar bonus and only going to make 1.5 in annual salary, he would be stupid not to. That is cheap today's market. He could make A LOT more.

No question TNew is worth a bit more than what he is paid now. Not sure he is a young 28 by any measure. Plus those high twitch muscles go when they go and that is more a function of age then anything else.

Also no question, Jerry would ever let a good player leave for money. He is not that type of GM -- for better or worse.

But I would rather pay a guy more, per year, and give him a shorter deal at that spot.

If he was an OG or Center probably just the oppossite.

Problem is Newman will never take a short deal. There no doubt that Jerry won't let him go anywhere, but it will cost you. Both money and years. He will want 5-6.

[quote=D-Unit;700063]I went ahead and did the dirty work of collecting our dear Cowboys contracts for every player. Data from www.rotoworld.com. It's updated with Romo's new contract. Glad we got Romo's contract out of the way, but there are many more dominos to fall before next season starts. Hopefully our salary cap is as good as some of you claim. I'm still a bit skeptic. Feel free to discuss.

2008 I'm only commenting on these because the rest of the years are really sort of irrelavent
Flozell Adams - 2007: $5,000,000, 2008: Free Agent Most likely gone after this year, no reason to spend alot of money on a soon to be 33 year old OT when we've drafted several OT the last two years
Marion Barber - 2007: $435,000, 2008: Restricted Free Agent I can see us ponying up some money for him, but it certainly won't be alot. We'll tender him as a first round pick (very moderate money) no worries on the cap
Joe Berger - 4/27/2007: Signed a one-year contract. 2007: $435,000, 2008: Restricted Free Agent Who cares?
Stephen Bowen - 4/13/2007: Signed a one-year contract. 2007: $360,000, 2008: Exclusive Rights Free Agent Who cares?
Chris Canty - 7/28/2005: Signed a five-year contract. 2007: $435,000, 2008: $460,000 (voidable year), 2009: $545,000, 2010: Free Agent No way he voids this contract in 08, he's ok, but certainly not a hot commodity at DE yet
Patrick Crayton - 2007: $1.3 million, 2008: Free Agent So? He's very replaceable, even if signed he's cheap
Keith Davis - 4/10/2006: Signed a two-year, $3.1 million contract. The deal included a $1.2 million signing bonus. 2007: $925,000, 2008: Free Agent I hope we don't resign him, he's terrible in coverage and too expensive to be just a ST ace. His cap figure goes down or he's gone. Either way, we're in better cap shape
Ken Hamlin - 3/23/2007: Signed a one-year, $2.56 million contract. The deal included an $800,000 signing bonus and contains $600,000 in incentives. 2007: $1.7 million, 2008: Free Agent probably signs another deal, more cap friendly for 3-5 years after the season. Improves cap postion for team
Julius Jones - 7/29/2004: Signed a six-year, $4.37 million contract. The deal included a $1.9 million signing bonus. 2007: $510,000, (2008-2009 voided), 2008: Free Agent Gone after this season or signs a cheap deal. Replaced in draft most likely
Nate Jones - 2007: $510,000, 2008: Free Agent Who cares?
LP Ladouceur - 3/25/2006: Signed a two-year contract. 2007: $435,000, 2008: Restricted Free AgentAnother cap friendly deal
Terence Newman - 7/23/2003: Signed a seven-year, $33.4 million contract. The deal included a $6.5 million signing bonus and contains $13.1 million in guarantees. 2007: $1,138,667, 2008: $1,416,417 (voidable year), 2009: $1,694,165, 2010: Free AgentPlays 08 and voids 09 almost assuredly, will cost a mint but plenty of cap room to spare going into his contract so no big worry
Evan Oglesby - 2007: $435,000, 2008: Restricted Free Agent who cares
Cory Proctor - 5/1/2007: Signed a one-year contract. 2007: $435,000, 2008: Exclusive Rights Free Agentwho cares
Jay Ratliff - 7/20/2005: Signed a three-year contract. 2007: $435,000, 2008: Restricted Free Agentan unexpected surprise this year will cost more than we thought, he gets a good deal in the range of 5 years 18 million dollars in the offseason
Jacques Reeves - 4/20/2007: Signed a one-year contract. 2007: $850,000, 2008: Free Agentjust a guy, signs a cap friendly deal or leaves
Tyson Thompson - 2007: $435,000, 2008: Exclusive Rights Free Agentdefinitely gone after this season


2009
Only going to comment on one player from this year
Terrell Owens - 3/18/2006: Signed a three-year, $25 million contract. The deal included an initial roster bonus of $5 million. 2007: $5 million (+ $5 million option bonus + $3 million roster bonus), 2008: $4 million (+ $3 million roster bonus due in June), 2009: Free Agent His cap value actually goes down next year so no worries, and he's not signed to another contract



Anthony Henry - 3/2/2005: Signed a five-year, $25 million contract. The deal included a $10 million signing bonus. 2007: $3.6 million, 2008-2009: $2.6 million, 2010: Free Agentas you can see, his cap figure goes down a million a year next year


Terry Glenn - 3/27/2006: Signed a five-year, $20 million contract extension through 2010. 2007: $820,000 (+ $5 million roster bonus), 2008: $1,740,000, 2009: $2,000,000, 2010: $4,950,000, 2011: Free Agentobviously he won't be back next year saving 5.2 million vs. what he cost this year on the cap


overall we're in very good cap shape with our most expensive players (Owens, Flozell, TGlenn) all getting cheaper or leaving the team entirely. Romo's cap hit will be +6 million from what he costs today and that's what Glenn is costing us so it's a net ZERO to the cap. We're allready over 10 million under the cap and the cap is set to expand by 6-8 million next year. We have enough money to sign at least 1 and maybe 2 TOP TIER FA's in the offseason if we chose to do so.

Newman can void his 2008 contract, not his 2009 one. Unless that data is wrong. So I don't see him suiting up for us next season unless he has a new contract.

The guys I'm most worried about is:

Flozell Adams - I think we need to bring him back if he's willing to take on a much more reasonable salary.

Marion Barber - Priority 1A. Newman is 1B. We lose our bad ass identity if he's gone.

Chris Canty - IMO, he deserves a bigger contract. Signing him to a 5-6 year contract with a salary at 2M a year that escalates to 4M a year will be a smart deal for the Boys if Canty keeps progressing the way he has. Otherwise I see him turning into an expensive player that will have to pay much more to keep later on.

Ken Hamlin - A deal similar to Gurode would be good.

Terence Newman - Pay the man, but just like Henry, make it de-escalate (is that a word?) before it ends.

Cory Proctor - I've always been intrigued by what I read of him. Should be cheap.

Jay Ratliff - Beware. Don't overpay. Keep him at a reasonable price.

If Flozell plays like he did last night he would be worth more than $5 mil.

I don't think Flozell will be resigned. He is currently playing at a high level but is also going to be 33 by the start of next season and has a history of injury during the last few years.

So who do you think the replacement would be? If the coaching staff believes that either Free or McQuistan are ready to take over I might be okay with it, but I would be mad if we let a Pro Bowl LT leave only to sign a lesser replacement through free agency.

I think Free is the replacement. I think the OL will look like this in a year or two:

LT-Free
LG-McQuistan
C-Gurode
RG-Bigg
RT-Columbo

Swing T - Marten
Swing G/C - Not currently on team

For the love of God, I hope Free pans out the way we all hope. Just to be safe, I would spend a 1st or 2nd rounder on a OT, but the rest of you guys hate the idea...I know... I know... I'll just sit alone in my self worry. I'd rather Flo be back next year than turn it over that soon to Free.

Honestly I never see McQuistan becoming a full time starter for us without an injury occurring.

You guys seem to really hate Proctor and McQuistan and really love Free and Marten. This is like the love Stanback and hate Austin thing. Love Anderson but hate Hoyte. Kind of weird -- the new new new thing.

I think Free will eventually take over but, I do think we will re-sign Flozell. He's shown that when he's healthy he is pretty much as good as they come. We have one of the best Lines in the league for a change...I dont think we'll split them up just yet.

I'm certainly not opposed to the idea of taking a OT in the first round if we get a high enough pick to grab one.

I do think that McQuistan will be a starter for us soon. Everytime he's been in the game he's played well. He hasn't been overmatched (granted it's mostly preseason that he's played) and has played well against some top tier DE's.

We do have one of the better lines in the NFL and I don't necessarily want Flo to go, but I think Jerry will remember the Larry Allen contract. Signing an OL to a huge contract after they are 33 is just begging for some dead cap money in a couple of years.

I'm actually hoping for a mid-tier OG in FA along with a mid-high tier WR in the offseason.

If we can get Flozell for a mid tier OT price i'm all for it. Because then if he starts to decline not only would he be benchable but also be able to be cut in the future.

Agreed. If we signed him for 5-6 million a year with little guaranteed money and a short deal like 3 years I'm all for it. Don't see it happening though.

P.S. Don't forget we're sitting on several million on dead cap money from the Rivera retirement this offseason as well. That will help the cap situation next year.

Feel free to discuss.

2008
Flozell Adams - 2007: $5,000,000, 2008: Free Agent
Marion Barber - 2007: $435,000, 2008: Restricted Free Agent
Joe Berger - 4/27/2007: Signed a one-year contract. 2007: $435,000, 2008: Restricted Free Agent
Stephen Bowen - 4/13/2007: Signed a one-year contract. 2007: $360,000, 2008: Exclusive Rights Free Agent
Chris Canty - 7/28/2005: Signed a five-year contract. 2007: $435,000, 2008: $460,000 (voidable year), 2009: $545,000, 2010: Free Agent
Patrick Crayton - 2007: $1.3 million, 2008: Free Agent
Keith Davis - 4/10/2006: Signed a two-year, $3.1 million contract. The deal included a $1.2 million signing bonus. 2007: $925,000, 2008: Free Agent
Ken Hamlin - 3/23/2007: Signed a one-year, $2.56 million contract. The deal included an $800,000 signing bonus and contains $600,000 in incentives. 2007: $1.7 million, 2008: Free Agent
Julius Jones - 7/29/2004: Signed a six-year, $4.37 million contract. The deal included a $1.9 million signing bonus. 2007: $510,000, (2008-2009 voided), 2008: Free Agent
Nate Jones - 2007: $510,000, 2008: Free Agent
LP Ladouceur - 3/25/2006: Signed a two-year contract. 2007: $435,000, 2008: Restricted Free Agent
Terence Newman - 7/23/2003: Signed a seven-year, $33.4 million contract. The deal included a $6.5 million signing bonus and contains $13.1 million in guarantees. 2007: $1,138,667, 2008: $1,416,417 (voidable year), 2009: $1,694,165, 2010: Free Agent
Evan Oglesby - 2007: $435,000, 2008: Restricted Free Agent
Cory Proctor - 5/1/2007: Signed a one-year contract. 2007: $435,000, 2008: Exclusive Rights Free Agent
Jay Ratliff - 7/20/2005: Signed a three-year contract. 2007: $435,000, 2008: Restricted Free Agent
Jacques Reeves - 4/20/2007: Signed a one-year contract. 2007: $850,000, 2008: Free Agent
Tyson Thompson - 2007: $435,000, 2008: Exclusive Rights Free Agent
Adams - If the cap space is available and the amount reasonable, I would franchise tag him in order to keep him for 2008. I wouldnt give him a long term deal considering his age and while he's playing good, it is a contract year for him which always makes players play better. The only reason why I would tag him would be to keep the OL intact for 2008 while grooming his replacement for 2009.

Barber - Would tender at the highest level (1st and 3rd) and would definitely try to sign him to a long term deal.

Canty - Solid player who could get better. Wont put up huge sack numbers because he's in the 3-4 and is meant to engage the OL in order for the LB core to roam free and make plays. Would resign him but wouldnt overpay him.

Crayton - Definitely would resign him. Is basically better than what Bryant was without the attitude. Good second WR opposite Owens.

Davis - Good special teams player but I wouldnt pay him more than what he's currently getting paid.

Hamlin - Has played well. Would resign if the team doesnt think that Watkins is ready. If he is, let Hamlin walk.

J. Jones - I see it says that his contract was voided. Was that because of him hitting an incentive/clause in his contract or was that from the team? If the team voided the contract, they're stupid considering the fact that he signed a cheap contract as a rookie. I would resign him either way because him and Barber are a damn good combo that keeps both fresh and lessens the possibility of injury. Not to mention the fact that teams who have two back sets dont do as good when they let one of the RB's leave. Be smart - keep him.

LP - Good long snapper. Underrated considering the position. Would resign.

Newman - He'll be 30 when the 2008 season starts and quite honestly, I wouldnt give him a contract longer than three years unless it's a dummy contract where the signing bonus is up front but the base salary is low and increases as the years go by thus allowing them to let him walk without penalty.

Ratliff - Would give him a solid tender offer but wouldnt overpay.

Reeves - Would resign. He's played well as a starter but is better suited for NB.

Thompson - Would resign if he doesnt ask for a lot mainly so I wouldnt have to look for a third RB.

For those that I didnt comment on, I would just let them leave and replace them on the second day of the draft.
