Dak Prescott Doesn't Reach Long-Term Deal With Cowboys, Turned Down $100 Mil?!
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
The Dallas Cowboys and QB Dak Prescott did not reach a long-term deal by the Wednesday deadline, reportedly turning down over $100 million guaranteed...
quote:

The superstar QB had been in contract talks with Cowboys brass all offseason about getting an extension done ... but the two sides just couldn't meet in the middle.

26-year-old Dak will now play on the franchise tag in 2020 -- which locks him in as Dallas' QB for only this season at $31.4 million.

Dallas' final offer to Dak was set to pay the 2-time Pro Bowler between $33 and $35 million every year, with over $100 million guaranteed ... NFL Network's Jane Slater reported Tuesday.

But, Prescott reportedly wanted fewer years on the deal ... and the Cowboys wouldn't budge -- so now it'll be back to the negotiating table next offseason.

He should get paid for every playoff game win.

Don’t pay above average qbs franchise money. It’s that simple. “But it’s so hard to find a decent qb”. And?

Jason Garrett designed an offense to protect against his deficiencies. Thank the Cowboys could’ve won more games with at least half of the NFL quarterbacks that we’re starters on other teams.

Dumb move Dak

I love Dak, but damn man, don't be this greedy. You could break a leg like Alex Smith and your career could be over. Or have a bad year. Or the NFL suffers huge ratings declines and the willingness of teams to pay bigger money next year isn't there. Sign the deal, man. You're letting ego get in your way.

If he only gets paid for this year due to a knee, or whatever, after you deduct taxes, commissions and expenses, he still would leave the NFL with Kaepernick money in savings.

I hope he doesn't really think someone else would offer him more. He couldn't be any more average.

$31.4 million for this season - still insane to me.

It was a 50 signing bonus with 70 for the first two years. He wanted 4 years instead of 5 so he could bend them over after 4. Not bad for a baw from Green Acres.
