    Choose to beleive it if you want, but Jones said that they can't pay Gurode's salary to a backup.

    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says the decision to cut center Andre Gurode was actually quite simple: Phil Costa proved in training camp that he was the best center on the roster, and there was no way Jones would pay $5.5 million to a second-string center.

    “You should look at this one based upon the facts as you see them,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. “You saw Phil Costa step up and for all practical purposes win the starting job at center. Win it heads up. . . . Then you saw the reality of having a significant salary for a backup player .”
    Jones doesn't go cheap...if Gurode was really good, he would have still been a Cowboy...they weren't in danger of going over the cap with him there.

    It's because Brown can play Guard and Center. He'd compete for the LG spot and if he didn't win the job he'd be the interior backup o-lineman.

    They could easily get another million in cap space by removing the 2nd round tender from Ellerbe and bringing him back for the minimum.

    The Cowboys had cap issues last year. They had to chose between Gurode or Newman and decided to go Gurode because Costa looked like he could play while they were thin at corner.

    They had issues at the start, but it wasn't a pure cut based on salary...they kept him throughout camp to give him an opportunity to show that he was good enough to keep and start over Costa.

    I agree with that. They weren't sure which direction they wanted to go in. Gurode was out of shape and Newman looked very slow. If they had another CB I bet both would have been cut.

    What's interesting is that after the season Jerry said he would like to get Gurode back but obviously he hasn't done it. Maybe because of the lost cap space?

    Supposedly 4 teams are interested. The Ravens already made him an offer but given our cap I'm sure it's the least money. Brown is probably waiting to see if he can top it knowing he has that offer in his back pocket in case he can't

    Do you know how long a player can wait before making his decision? I know they can wait a long while, but meaninig how long the longest is if they want to take part in preseason and all.

    I'm sure some other team will pay him more, but that dude has made his money. He should come back here and try to play for a WINNER.

    Most players don't think that way. If Jason Brown did he would already be signed. Players only have so much time to make life changing money. That's why a Mario Williams who has never even been in the playoffs signs with the Bills.
