09:42 AM ET 11.26 | There are all sorts of reasons to negotiate a long-term contract with Josh Hamilton. His talent is limitless, and it's hard to put a price tag on that. On the other hand, at age 29 -- he will be 30 in May -- he's older than most players in his class of service time (entering his second year of arbitration eligibility). It's hard to predict how many games he'll play: less than 90 like the odd-numbered years or more than 130 like in the even numbers? There can be complications aplenty. Adding the MVP award, which he won Tuesday, to the mix isn't going to make signing him any cheaper.

Surprised he's not talked about more this off season.

He doesn't play for the Yankees or Red Sox.

he'll break down quicker than Mo Vaughn; but if a team can sign him for 3 yr. and $36mil, I'd say go for it.

Can he throw a football? Jones will pay him if the Rangers won't. Just ask some guy named Henson.

Your premise is off. Cowboys don't need a QB. Need a corner or two though. :D

He isn't talked about because he isn't a free agent. That's why
