We’re looking at somewhere in that

It seems incredibly likely that Sean Lee will return to the field this Sunday when the Cowboys take on the Washington Redskins. For the first time ever Dak Prescott Jersey White , the Cowboys defense isn’t aching for his return, as rookie Leighton Vander Esch has been spectacular filling in. In fact, he’s been the best rookie linebacker so far. Dallas is certainly eager to get a veteran as talented as Lee back on the field. When they line up in their base 4-3 formations, they could possibly get Lee on the field at the same time as Vander Esch. They would need to move LVE to the strong side in that situation assuming Jaylon Smith stays in the middle, relegating Damien Wilson to the bench. When they switch to a nickel package, they’ll have to choose between linebackers if we assume that Jaylon Smith will stay on the field for most of the snaps. The Cowboys will have to do some swapping of positions Womens Emmitt Smith Jersey , but in the end who should get the majority of the snaps next to Smith, Lee or Vander Esch? Will the Cowboys beat the clock with Amari Cooper’s extension?" />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBlogging The BoysBlogging The Boys, a Dallas Cowboys fan communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryCowboysOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys NewsFiled under:Dallas Cowboys GeneralThe race is on for the Cowboys and Amari Cooper against Michael Thomas and the New Orleans SaintsNew,173commentsWill the Cowboys beat the clock with Amari Cooper’s extension?CDTShareTweetShareShareThe race is on for the Cowboys and Amari Cooper against Michael Thomas and the New Orleans SaintsMatthew Emmons-USA TODAY SportsAmari Cooper celebrated his 25th birthday on Monday. It’s kind of ridiculously insane how much he’s accomplished through just a quarter of a century.Of course, much of Cooper’s accomplishments took place over the most recent year of his life. Heck, a year ago he was still a member of the Oakland Raiders during Jon Gruden’s first season in his second stint Emmitt Smith Jersey , everything (as in everything) still lay ahead of him.Also lying ahead of Cooper these days is a gigantic payday. The wide receiver is on the fifth year of his rookie contract (the Raiders picked up his fifth-year option while he was still on the team) which means he’s about to get paid.Cooper would get paid by any NFL team, but the fact that he completely changed the Dallas Cowboys offense last season and propelled them to postseason success seems to heighten his value within America’s Team. The Cowboys are well-versed in contract situations these days as they already negotiated DeMarcus Lawrence’s new deal and are in the middle of Dak Prescott’s extension this offseason, and don’t forget that players like Ezekiel Elliott, Byron Jones, and others are also looming.There’s a pending contract across the league that could impact Cooper’s valueSpeaking of looming, New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis made an appearance on Mad Dog Sports Radio on Monday Emmitt Smith Jersey White , and he was asked about another top-flight wide receiver in the NFL (that is unless he’s playing against the Cowboys on Thursday Night Football if you know what I mean) in Michael Thomas.According to Loomis, things are progressing in the right direction with Thomas. That’s good for them because the Cowboys held Thomas to five receptions for 40 yards last season (I’m done kidding, I promise!) but in reality because he’s a very good receiver. Tim Heitman-USA TODAY SportsThomas getting paid would have a huge impact on the Cowboys because, well, Amari Cooper is waiting to get paid. Just like the Carson Wentz contract helped establish a new bar for Dak Prescott’s inevitable deal, if Michael Thomas agrees to a new contract before Amari Cooper does Womens Ezekiel Elliott Jersey , you can bet your bottom dollar that the latter will be looking at the former’s new salary as a benchmark of sorts, too.New Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. leads the league in average annual value with over $18M per season (the rest of the game’s best all hover around $16M per season), but in a seller’s market it stands to reason that Thomas could eclipse that. It’s certainly possible at the very least. We’re looking at somewhere in that neighborhood (although probably not that high because at the end of the day receivers are not quarterbacks) for Cooper and we know that the Cowboys are going to do it because they didn’t trade a first-round pick for him not to keep him around for the foreseeable future. It seems like Dak Prescott’s deal is the priority for now, but the team would be served well to try to get them both done as soon as possible.So much money to spend, so little time to do it.
