Same looks like no one is ready to pay give him what he wants and he will just be in the burgundy and gold.

Re: Update on Rock

I like Rock Cartright and I can't blame him for checking out other teams interests, but i just don't see him getting big $. No offense to him b/c he does a very good job, but like mentioned before a couple of other players could fill in as KR and do a decent enough job.

I too see him re-upping w/ a modest pay raise.

Re: Update on Rock

*I* certainly would have no objection to the Rock returning next year, neither can I blame him for testing his worth on the market. I also hope he dosen't have an over inflated opinion of himself, beleiving he has more value than he actually does.

TBH, I would like to see more speed and versatility at the KR position than he brings. Not trying to diminish what he does, but would just like to see an upgrade there.
A revolution is coming and it will be televised.

Re: Update on Rock

I like Rock and all but there is a problem.. he takes up a 3rd RB slot....one that should be reserved for young talent...
So...if we want to draft a RB with later picks, we will have to carry 4 RBs with Rock on the roster...which means we cant carry as many WR or TE..
I'm not a fan of that idea.
I think we need 3 RB that can carry the team for a game or two...
I just dont think Rock can do that....on top of that...its not like hes a situational back...like a 3rd and long pass threat out of the backfield.
He was supposed to be a short yard king, but that just didn't happen.

The more I think of it, we should offer him what he got last year....and if he takes it, he should battle for his roster spot with any Free agents or Draft picks.

Yes, he is a special teams stud, but that can only cover so much.
I'd personally rather have a pass recieving young RB with Betts returning kicks
I hate Dallas...Period
