Cowboys' Dak Prescott turning down over $30M per season?

13 August 2019

The Dallas Cowboys continue to talk to their latest "Triplets" about new deals and the quarterback wants more than all of the rest.

NFL Network's Jane Slater reported Monday that Prescott is "seeking a contract worth $40 million per year".

According to Jori Epstein of USA Today, the Cowboys have offered Prescott a deal that would make him one of the top-5 highest paid at his position, per EVP Stephen Jones. But we know this: paying Prescott $40 million annually, like appeasing the wholly unreliable Elliott at all, ain't it.

If the Dallas Cowboys had long-term vision, running back Ezekiel Elliott would be traded away, not handed a major contract extension.

A PFT source quickly shot down the report, saying it is false based on either new money or total value at signing.

Between Goff helping the Rams recently earn a trip to the Super Bowl to Prescott leading the Cowboys to NFC East titles in two of the last three seasons, it's safe to say each youngster has made a strong case for being a top quarterback in the league.

It would appear that Prescott is hoping to be able to shoot for the stars contract wise and land somewhere between Wentz and Russell Wilson for average per season.

If Prescott reaches the lower end of that range, he would be up there with Ben Roethlisberger in average salary and surpass Aaron Rodgers, Carson Wentz and Matt Ryan.

Prescott, who is a former 4th-round pick back in 2016, is entering the final year of his 4-year, $2.72M contract.

If the Cowboys can't iron out a deal with Prescott or Elliott (not to mention another free-agent-to-be, Cooper) a cloud will hang over the team this coming regular season.
