“So it’s for Franck to fight hard and wait for his opportunity.” Tabanou’s two Swansea appearances to date have come in Capital One Cup ties against lower-league opposition and he has rarely made the matchday squad for Premier League games. But Monk said he was disappointed that Tabanou had spoken publicly about his frustration in the French media. “These situations are very common now and I look at them as a player being very poorly advised,” Monk said. “It’s disappointing to hear those type of things and it doesn’t benefit the player in anyway shape or form. “Your job as a professional footballer is to get your head down and do everything you can for the manager to pick you. “That means working harder than any other player in your position, less talking and more action. “That’s the way it should be as a professional footballer and it amazes me that players talk in the newspapers. “It’s not clever and it makes me think that the player is ill-advised and should have a look at himself.” However, Monk says that Tabanou, who signed a three-year contract last summer, will not be leaving Swansea in the January transfer window. “I brought Franck to the club because potentially I think he’s a great talent,” Monk said. “He’s working hard and I’m happy with him. “What he needs to realise is he has to work as hard as you can and give the manager no excuse whatsoever. “That’s his job, but at this moment Neil’s not giving the shirt up.” Press Association “I have never been used to this. The hardest thing, is to see that there is not even competition. I am not even in the squad,” Tabanou was quoted as saying in L’Equipe. “I cannot stay like this. If this continues, we will make a decision in December. But, me, I am just asking for my chance.” In the interview, however, Tabanou, who said he told his agent to ignore interest from Dynamo Kiev, Sevilla and other clubs because his preference was to join Swansea, admitted he was “not cutting it” at training when he first moved to Wales and “he was under what was required” physically. Tabanou said his fitness results were now “one of the best” at Swansea but Monk feels the 26-year-old has to show patience for a first-team opportunity. “When Franck came to the club I was surprised to see he wasn’t at the level of others in certain elements,” Monk said. “I told him that and a lot of the staff and myself have worked with Franck to get him up to the level of what is needed and required to play in this team. “Unfortunately for him, in the period it’s taken him to get to that level players in his position are already there and playing games, so they’re ahead of him. “Look at Tayls (Taylor). He came in flying straight away in pre-season and he’s ahead of Franck. Tabanou joined Swansea from St Etienne in a £3.5million deal in June and had been expected to push Wales international Neil Taylor for a first-team spot at left-back. But Tabanou has yet to play a single minute in the Barclays Premier League and spoke of his frustration in French newspaper L’Equipe this week, asking why Swansea had bought him in the first place and saying he would consider his future ahead of the January transfer window. Swansea manager Garry Monk admits he was surprised by Franck Tabanou’s physical condition when he arrived at the club last summer and says the France Under-21 international has been playing catch-up ever since.
The good news for Cooper is the Cowboys should be motivated to make sure both he and Prescott keep playing in Dallas, at least for 2020. The team has roughly $75 million in available cap space, and though Prescott will earn a chunk of that, Cooper is the clear No. 2 priority over Dallas’ other question marks.Dallas also must take into account the intangible factor that is the Prescott-Cooper connection, even as Michael Gallup emerges as another top receiver in coordinator Kellen Moore’s offense. That brings us back to Prescott’s leverage, which he gained after he reportedly turned down a Cowboys contract offer worth $33 million per year and proceeded to play the entire 2019 season at a high level without getting injured.Now, given the financial benefits of the franchise tag for a quarterback unfazed by the lack of a long-term deal, plus the potential of a market-altering contract for Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Prescott has no reason to settle for a deal before the tag deadline. He knows he deserves to be compensated as well as if not better than Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, the league’s highest-paid player at $35 million per year. (Given the uncertainty of how a new CBA would impact player contracts, Prescott also might want to push for a shorter-term deal.)That puts pressure on Dallas to give into the QB’s demands if the team wants to make its best-case scenario a reality — getting Prescott locked into a new deal by March 16 and being able to place a tag on Cooper regardless of the results of CBA voting.MORE: Explaining NFL franchise and transition tags The Cowboys are in a tricky spot as the franchise tag deadline and 2020 NFL free agency approach, which means Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper, a couple weeks away from hitting the open market, still doesn’t know whether he’ll remain in Dallas this season and beyond.That might be why Cooper, 25, publicly reminded the world Thursday he wants “to be a Dallas Cowboy for life,” a sentiment he told 105.3 FM The Fan in Dallas he thinks about almost every day. “From the time I got here we were able to hit the ground running,” Cooper said Thursday of his relationship with Prescott. “And just from my experience of being in the NFL, I wouldn’t say that that’s a common thing.”From NFL Now: #Cowboys WR Amari Cooper wants to be a Cowboy for Life. And Dallas wants to lock him up. Can they settle on a number? pic.twitter.com/HGZDt8FimA— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 6, 2020The Cowboys seem to agree, which is why the player for whom they traded a pair of first-round draft picks in 2018 remains in their plans. Letting such a talented player walk would be off brand for Dallas.This team is still owned by Jerry Jones, after all. “Everything — the facility, I love it here in Frisco (Texas),” Cooper explained. “Just the aura of being a Dallas Cowboy, I mean, you can’t beat it.”Even with the Cowboys facing multiple tough decisions beyond what to do with Cooper, there’s a good chance the receiver will get his wish.COWBOYS OFFSEASON GUIDE:Key free agents, team needs, cap space & moreDallas’ priority, rightfully, is 26-year-old quarterback Dak Prescott, who also is set to hit unrestricted free agency in the absence of a contract extension or a tag. But Prescott has the leverage in contract negotiations with the team, which is bad news for Cooper.One of two things will happen with Prescott before the March 16 deadline for teams to tag players: Either the Cowboys and the QB will reach an agreement on a contract extension, or the team will franchise tag him, likely with an exclusive tender.Cooper should be hoping for the former outcome, but given where things stand in Prescott’s contract talks, the latter is more likely.Among the problems for the Cowboys (and, in turn, for Cooper) is the timing of the NFLPA’s vote on whether to accept or reject the collective bargaining agreement proposal NFL owners approved a couple weeks ago. The players’ voting period ends a day before the tag window closes, and the results of that voting will directly impact how Dallas can handle Prescott and Cooper.CBA proposal rejected: This outcome would make Dallas’ problems go poof, at least temporarily. If there is no new CBA in place, NFL teams will proceed in 2020 through what’s called a “final league year” under the terms of the current CBA. Those terms allow teams in the final league year an ability to apply two tags (both a franchise tag and a transition tag) rather than one or the other. Under this scenario, the Cowboys could simply franchise tag Prescott and transition tag Cooper, keeping them both off the market and buying time for contract extension talks.CBA proposal accepted: This outcome is why it would be understandable if Cooper were to selfishly vote “no” on the CBA proposal. If ratified, the new CBA would be put in place for 2020, and teams would only be allowed to use the franchise tag or the transition tag rather than both. Unless the Cowboys strike a deal with Prescott on an extension before March 16, the QB likely would get the franchise tag, and Cooper would hit free agency.
