Sadly Teddy Bs value would also now be a first rounder given the situation in Jacksonville and with the Giants

Cowboys are lifers in NFL Purgatory.

He knows that half-a$$ing it for 5 years is never the answer. Trade away all your good players. Tank. Use tons of high draft picks to build a roster best suited for the type of football you want to play. 

It's only something a guy on a massive, long term contract can pull off. 

is derek carr next? guy behind me at the jet game yesterday was saying the rumblings were derek carr to the giants.

Exactly, no first year GM on a 4 year deal could even consider trading away what he did.

the cooper trade was a no brainer.  the mack deal is looking more logical b/c they're starting over and wouldn't derek carr look great on jacksonville right now?

I think they move Carr in the offseason, with that contract and cap hit it would be hard for the Jags or Giants to make room mid-season.

It was pretty clear from day 1 that Gruden didn't like this team. Once he traded away Mack, you had to know he was going to clean house. Would not be surprised to see him trade Carr also.

His cap number is $25 million for the season, even half that is $12.5, Jax only has like $8 million in cap space right now.  The Giants only $3 million in space.   Tough to maneuver that in the middle of the season.

I am stunned that Cooper was worth a first to any team, even one with a clearly deteriorating owner.  Compare that to a 5th for Hyde?  Makes no sense.  I'm sure Gruden would LOVE to trade Carr to the Giants as it would take them out of the QB race and they are really OAK's only competition.  If he doesn't get the first pick, and the Giants are bidders, he'll have to pay a lot more in trade value to get there than if they aren't.  Just like if BUF or ARI were closer to our draft slot, we would probably have had to pay more than we did to get up to #3.   

If the Giants make that trade, they are even dumber than I currently think they are.  And Gruden will come out of this looking pretty smart.  Still, as we all know, even four 1st round picks is no guarantee of anything.
