How many question arise from this signing? 1. Is this a sign that there is hope that there won’t be a lockout in 2011? 2. Is this is a sign that Roy Williams will be on his way out of Dallas if he does not perform in 2010? 3. Did Kim Kardashian jump up and down when she heard and is there video of her reaction? 4. With Austin, Bryant, and Williams receiving a bag of cash with a dollar sign on it, is too much money being spent at one position?
I don’t know that there are answers to the above question, but Austin signed a similar contract as Roy Williams (6 years for 54 million dollars). Austin was expected to make $3.168 million in 2010, so all things being equal the contract is 5 additional years for 51 million dollars. Undoubtedly, this is welcome news to Austin as well as Cowboys fans across the nation.
