Doug Free and the Dallas Cowboys
Rapoport said the Cowboys are asking Free to take a "substantial" pay cut. The Cowboys will not save any money on the cap whether they cut or keep Free, either move will cost $10 million against their salary cap. However, if the cut comes with a post-June 1 designation, the Cowboys can apply $5 million of the total toward next year's cap.
Are the Chargers better without Philip Rivers?
Sapp criticizes Cowboys
Sapp slammed Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, saying quarterback Tony Romo will not live up to his new $108 million contract. Sapp was especially critical of Jones' recent comments about Romo needing to have the same type of worth ethic as Peyton Manning. Sapp makes the point that Romo has been the Cowboys quarterback for more than half a decade, but Jones only now is asking for this work ethic from the starter. Why has Jones not been demanding it for years?
Adam Schein on Cam Newton and Ron Rivera
Adam Schein talked about his article on NFL.com in which he said Cam Newton and Ron Rivera were not the answers for the Carolina Panthers. Schein said Newton is not in the same group as Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick. Schein wonders whether Newton is a winner or leader. He also said the Panthers should have fired Rivera after last season and brought in an innovative offensive mind. Schein said he is not convinced Newton is ever going to "get it."
