Dak Prescott seeking $40 million from Cowboys

Recap2-hero Dak Prescott Rumored To Have Turned Down $30 Million A Year Extension With Cowboys

According to Michael Lombardi of The Athletic, Prescott allegedly turned down a deal that would pay him approximately $30 million per year.

The last half of that report was, frankly, #fakenews.

Yahoo Sports NFL columnist Charles Robinson penned a unique breakdown on how the Eagles were aware of Dak Prescott's impending deal, and wanted to get in front of things before the Cowboys reset the quarterback market with some astronomical deal.

A fourth-round pick in 2016, Prescott is headed into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract.

If Prescott did ask for $40 million per season, such a strategy would entail the idea that a mid-point for negotiations would land Dak around $34M-$35M per season.

The Cowboys are straddled with the likelihood that they might have to overpay a quarterback who will never be at that level. Although this number necessarily omits key factors like guarantee and structure, it undoubtedly refers to a new-money figure. Nobody actually believes Prescott deserves to be paid more than any other quarterback, and most would argue that he's not the same level of player as Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson or Carson Wentz, three of the highest-paid quarterbacks.

Last year, 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo signed a five-year, $27.5 million contract. Oh yeah, Elliott is now holding out in Cabo, threatening not to play this season short of a new deal, while Cooper is set to earn almost $14 million in a team option season in 2019 before potentially hitting the open market.

Coincidentally, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram previously pegged Prescott's demands in the $34 million range.
