      It wasn't too long ago we were looking back on the contract the Cowboys handed out to Miles Austin with a proverbial SMH. Considering the fact his deal was the reason the Cowboys lost an extra $5 million against the cap this year and next, it seems tough to feel good about that one.Not everybody is holding that against Austin, however. Over at NFL.com, the aircraft carrier to our patrol boat, they're taking a daily look at each team's salary cap situation, and have declared Austin the Cowboys' biggest bargain. Here's how they're selling it:"Though his front-loaded contract extension from 2010…

    • What Does Brees Deal Mean For Romo?
      That Earth-destroying asteroid was successfully veered off course on Friday, when the New Orleans Saints agreed to a five-year contract with quarterback Drew Brees.The Super Bowl XLIV MVP, who set a record for passing yards last season, will make $40 million in 2012 and gets $60 million guaranteed over the first three years of the deal, which would be worth $100 million total if Brees is with the Saints through 2016.It's a lot of money, but it's also the going rate at the game's most highly-compensated position. As much as Brees means to New Orleans, the contract seems quite justified.And with…

    • 'Boys Had Claim On Gordon, But Not In 2nd
      Leading up to Thursday's Supplemental Draft, the conventional wisdom was that a number of teams were willing to take a flyer on Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon in the middle rounds.The question, really, was which team wanted him badly enough to give a second-round pick. That team was Cleveland, who owned the No. 2 selection in each round, behind only Buffalo. While the Cowboys did, in fact, put in a bid for Gordon, according to front office whispers, it was not in the second round.That the team wouldn't pay even money for Gordon could mean a few things, but is perhaps another indication th…

He was awarded to the Cleveland Browns, who took him in the second round. In doing so, they will forfeit their Round 2 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.As late as Thursday morning, the Cowboys were internally discussing which round they would've been willing to select the 6-3, 225-pound pass catcher, most likely the third or fourth.Because Cleveland's second-round pick came before the Cowboys' own, the Browns would'…
