Werder: Romo expects to be cut, not traded

Big Blue '56 : 2/16/2017 12:19 pm
Quote:


Ed Werder of ESPN reports that Romo is expecting to be released, not traded.

Apart from the complexity of trading an aging quarterback with a recent history of significant injuries, Romo would have to welcome a deal that transfers his contract (at a $14 million salary) to a new team for which he may or may not want to play. It makes more sense for him to negotiate a new deal from scratch with the team of his choice. And if that team doesn’t have to give up draft picks to get Romo, that team may be inclined to pay him even more than it otherwise would.

So count this report from Werder as Step One. Before too long, Romo could be stepping right out of Dallas, with an agreed list of potential destinations based on a secret side deal that no one ever will acknowledge.

Prescott might be the real deal for years. Or not.

As impressive as he was within the confines of their O, I did not see Romo-esque comeback qualities, that made this fan, sh*t..

Of course when you're anead most of the time, that part of his game wasn't really tested all that much..

I'll be happy when he's no longer in the division
OverTheCap: Cowboys almost $13 mil OVER '17 cap  
EddieNYG : 2/16/2017 12:30 pm : link
According to OverTheCap.Com, the Cowboys are $12,933,063 OVER the projected 2017 Salary Cap.

If they cut Romo, they will save $5.1 mil on the cap. So they would still be $7.8 mil OVER the cap in 2017.

Off topic, but how anyone can suggest the Cowboys will make a run at JPP is beyond me.

Romo's dead money is as follows:

2017 - $19.6 mil
2018 - $8.9 mil
2019 - $3.2 mil

First, no one was going to trade for him  
BillT : 2/16/2017 12:41 pm : link
And second, as much as you may dislike JJ he was going to give Romo his free agency. He wasn't going to force him to play somewhere he didn't want to considering all Romo did for the Cowboys and how it ended.

Dallas' MO for years.

They'll kick the can down the road for most of the players. I can see restructures for Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick, where they can lower both of their cap hits to near nothing and save almost $17 million on the cap by just doing those 2.

Sean Lee who has a 9 million base, and Dez who's at 13 are also candidates for this restructure, though a little trickier with both injury histories.

Jay on the Island : 2/16/2017 12:47 pm : link
Prescott was very impressive last season but we have seen this before with QB's like RG3, Foles, Sanchez, etc. If Prescott struggles next year they would not have Romo to fall back on. Hopefully they re-sign Sanchez as their primary backup.

pjcas18 : 2/16/2017 12:50 pm : link
cap is the same in a trade or cut unless if they cut him they can designate it post June 1 to spread out the dead money and accelerate the cap savings into 2017.

But trading him gives the cowboys control over where he goes and possibly gets them something in return.

If the Cowboys have trade options, even minimal it would be sort of foolish to cut him, unless the post 6/1 designation is that critical to their cap.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually believe JJ loves him like a son and wouldn't saddle him with a team he would prefer not playing for. Then again, do we ever know with JJ?

That would be great.

Romo is likely going to be a properly supported QB after all these years. Should be a good storyline for 2017.

Pete in MD : 2/16/2017 12:57 pm : link
old news for the cap nerds out there. They need to designate him a post June 1st cut to split the massive dead money hit. You can't do that with a trade apparently (unless after June 1st.) It wouldn't necessarily be an issue if they weren't one of only two teams who are over the cap for 2017.

That might be true, but it's the kind of thing that separates Belichick from his peers. If Tom Brady couldn't play do you think Belichick would do hat's in his best interest or the team's?

Frederick restructure probably gets than $10m or so, Smith 7 so that's your 17. That only gets them even and they still have to set aside rookie signing pool ($4/5m) and in season spending money (43m). Lee and Bryant have contracts that end in '19 so there isn't as much savings in restructuring them. It will be interesting to see if they're willing to do all of them.

The problem for the Cowboys is numbers. They have 6 starters who are FA, plus some depth players. 3 of their starting 4 in the secondary. I think they'll be lucky to resign or replace more than 3.

In his final year.

He was somewhat productive last year but not 12.2M IMO.

He's not a restructure candidate in the final year of his contract unless they want a pure extension but at 34 years old, he's someone I'd simply ask to take a pay cut.

I'd offer him a $1M salary with some incentives based on catches, downs played, etc.

they got rid of their albatross which was Romo -

how can anyone fault jerry for signing romo to franchise contract in the first place -- was jerry supposed to know that last years' fourth rounder would take his place successfully?

Emotion can't be a factor in the NFL salary cap. Simply can't be. Make decisions based on future expectations and value vs. what have you done in the past.

it's an easy way for a team to become mediocre and in cap hell.

I think they regress in 2017. The defense was awful and is probably going to lose many starters with limited resources to replace them. The book is out on how to stop Dak and their offense (Spags effin wrote it.) There's no way they win 13 games next year IMO.

Depends what "minimal" is. If the best offer they can get is a 4th for Romo, they might find it more useful to cut him as a June 1 target and spread the dead money over 2 years. Especially since 3/4s of their secondary needs to be re-signed/replaced.

Cruzin : 2/16/2017 1:50 pm : link

Witten is the ultimate team player. Did you hear a peep out of him when his consecutive catch streak was ended? ( they actually threw him a TD but was called back on a holding call and didn't target him the rest of the game).

He's someone that can catch 10 passes a game but when he wasn't in the game plan as a receiver he contributed as an excellent blocker.

Something tells me that his endorsements last year may have been some sort of reward for accepting the " whatever the team needs" request.

I think he's likely to take a pay cut and get it back somewhere down the road in the front office or more endorsements but if he were somehow let go because of his cap hit, we would need to jump all over Witten and make him Eli's new best friend for the next 2 years.

I'd cut him then. the face of the franchise, HOF TE stuff is emotional or irrelevant to future production and value and it's probably the kind of thinking that contributed to the Giants keeping Cruz instead of signing a different WR.

Witten is not worth 12.2M, if he wasn't "Jason Witten" he'd be cut.

People here talk about cutting or trading DRC, DRC had more value last year than Witten.

No, you're right, he's not worth 12.2 but as you said he is "Jason Witten" and I don't think JJ has the stones to cut him. Now, maybe Witten agrees for the good of the team. We'll see.

Witten is not getting paid 12.2M.....he is getting 7.4M....the other 4.8M is because of bookkeeping juggling that has caught up to the Cowboys and put them in cap hell.....how do you think they were able to pay him a base salary of 940K, 1.5M, and 1M in three of the last four seasons?

As for Romo, I seriously doubt they don't get something for him....possibly a conditional pick, based on his performance for another team....making him a post June 1st cut almost means nothing financially(only a difference of 1M dollars).....I am sure Jerruh has respect for Tony.....and he would only talk to teams that he knows Tony would be willing to go to......

Stand corrected Doomster. Took the claims at face value. In which case, no way Witten takes a cut from 7.4. But I think you're wrong on Romo. I think he'll be a FA. JJ going to let him control his own future.

Don't be pedantic, his cap number is 12.2M what he gets paid is 100% irrelevant to the salary cap.

In my example when I mentioned the pay cut, I said I'd offer him a $1M salary which would save them over $5M on the salary cap, which is all that matters from a savings standpoint.

and if he was unwilling to talk pay cut, then yes I'd cut him. He's not worth a 12.2M cap hit. The fact they can only save 7.4M of it is not in dispute with anything I've said.
what he gets paid is 100% relevant to the cap savings  
WillieYoung : 2/16/2017 3:03 pm : link
You own the business. You have two nearly equal players both of whom are going to be paid 7.4 million this year and who are both on the last year of their contract so this year's pay is the cap savings from cutting them. Do you care one counts 12.2 million against the cap and the other counts 10.2 against the cap? No it's just not relevant to the decision you have to make as to who to cut. The prorated bonuses are sunk cost that you can't do a thing about. If you don't understand that, don't buy a business.

MAkes me smile every day this off-season. I was pretty down when the Giants lost at GB but once Dallas went down I looked back on this season very fondly. One of the most enjoyable non super bowl seasons ever for me.

4-2 in the east and sweeping one of those east teams works for me every year. Do that every year and the Giants will make the playoffs every year.

Romo is going to cost them 9 million... NEXT OFFSEASON. Great deal Jerry!



actually - it is a great deal -- it will take the Cowboys out of cap hell as they are not paying Dak franchise QB money

they got rid of their albatross which was Romo -

how can anyone fault jerry for signing romo to franchise contract in the first place -- was jerry supposed to know that last years' fourth rounder would take his place successfully?


And after they get "out of cao hell", Prescott will be in line for a new deal.

*cap obviously!
JJ will probably cut Romo so he can work on a FA deal

With team of his choice.
I think the Cowboys will try to extend Witten for 2 more years to lessen cap hit in 2017. Witten keeps himself in great shape and can still be productive in this Cowboys offense foe an additional 2 years. He Is for sure a sure a First time up HOF candidate.

if not more.

Hopefully I'm wrong though.


Nobody would trade a 1st rounder for a 38 year old, nobody. That would be managerial incompetence an an astounding level.

Truth is, they weren't going to get a lot for Romo at his age with his back. They will cut him.
