I don't recall Smith or Kubiak promising a "Big Free Agent" signing for this year.IIRC,they specifically said they would be looking for mid-level guys this year.Can't remember last year though.
Exactly, in fact Rick Smith specifically said that we would not be singing a "Big Free Agent". It's your fault if you didn't believe him.

I agree, this is about half of what Clements and Samuel got. 5 years 20 mil, it all depends on structure and boneses; but on the surface it looks to be a reseaonable deal.

The kid did start on a 13 win team last year, spending some of that time as the #1 CB.

The question is: Did we offer that kind of money to Hutchins or Demps only to have those guys decide to turn the offer down so they could "test the waters" because they figured they could do better.

I'm thinking yes we did, but the truth is that we'll never really know the answer to that question.

We get promised playmakers every year, and get a bunch of crap through FA. Great drafts, horrible free agency.

You find the quote where Rick Smith said we would go after the bid name free agents this year, and get back to me when you fint it...I'll wait.

5 years $20 mil but no listing of what the guaranteed money is. that is the important part about any contract that is signed in the NFL.

The 49ers had a "great" F/A season last year and they still sucked. I'd rather save our money to sign good draft picks.

Can I join the chorus of those saying that the FO has clearly stated it is going to build from within through the draft and just bring in contributers via FA but not break the bank.

Default Re: Reeves is Signed!

Here's a little blurb from one of the writers at DallasCowboys.com that might give us a little insight into what the staff sees in this kid. It was written before the Pro Bowl. Very interesting.

http://www.dallascowboys.com/news.cf...%2C8697%2C9312

But that's a decision for down the road. The Cowboys have two other cornerbacks that are unrestricted free agents in Jacques Reeves and Nate Jones.

Raise your hand if anyone actually thought both of those seventh-round picks in 2004 would make it four years with the team? Not me, I know that.

I think both of them will get the chance to test the free-agent market. Jones is a solid special teams player, but the more years he keeps playing, the harder it is to justify keeping a veteran role player and possibly stunt the progress of a young defensive back.

As for Reeves, his market value might be surprising to some. While he gave up a few big plays late in the season, he was better than you think. And teams will take a chance on a guy who can run. Speed still sells in this league and Reeves has it.

Look for him to get a deal somewhere, and it may end up being here in Dallas.

And if the Cowboys are going to get a free-agent cornerback, that's the type of player I would expect them to sign. Someone in the category of Reeves, which means maybe it would just make sense to re-sign him.

Default Re: Reeves is Signed!

Quote:
POSITIVES: Tough, hard-working corner best in zone coverage. Physical, likes to mix it up and displays suddenness to his game. Plants and quickly breaks on the ball. Willing run defender.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the quick fluid back pedal, slow transitioning back to make a play on the pass and lacks downfield speed. Lacks timing and usually a half step behind.

ANALYSIS: A competitive, tough defender, Reeves had difficulty playing backed off the line of scrimmage at Purdue and is better facing the quarterback in a zone defense. Should get looks in camp next summer as a dime back and special teams player.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent

If nothing else, AD would negate my argument.

Any big splashy signings the Texans have made have flopped terribly. I'm not sure why people want to go that route. You build through the draft, that's what I like about this regime. They really don't miss on picks.
