The Cowgirls are not paying Dez any additional money. Dez cost $8 million against the Dallas cap this year, and I believe next year too. That's because the deal he signed in 2015 effectively had $40+ million in guaranteed money over a 5 year deal. Dez already has all that money in the bank. But Dallas had to spread those dollars over the 5 years of the deal, making the cap hit effectively $8 million a year whether or not Dez is on the squad. I presume that Dez was a post June 1st cut and as such his remaining cap hit was spread over 2 years.

This is why it wasn't about the money. Dez already has his money. If I were him, I'd be going for the ring too. Imagine how much he'd be worth when the Saints make it to the SB and he generates a TD catch or two on the way to winning.

Only Atlanta choked in an unchokable situation... Life is definitely good.

Good Lord thatís a nice deal for us! Dez turned down around $6 million/year from the Ravens in the offseason.
Your career don't mean a thing if you ain't got that ring.
