Dak Prescott among Top Earners in NFLPA Group Licensing

    The have long been more than a football team. They've been a brand. Built off the backs of the sustained level of success during the era, which included two Championships and an NFL record of 20 consecutive winning seasons, is one of the more recognizable brands in all of sports.

    Incredible when you think about it. The Dallas Cowboys haven't won, or even appeared in a Super Bowl since the 1995 season and they are still one of the most popular teams in sports.

    Further evidence of the team's popularity comes as the NFLPA releases its top earners in group licensing. is number four.

    Sitting in front of Prescott are , , and . Three quarterbacks who have had championship success. Three quarterbacks who have at one point in time been considered the best at the position.

    In the accounting year, which ended February 29th, 2020, Prescott earned just over $2.5 million, which comes “from marketing and royalties, largely from games, apparel, and trading cards.” Dak has become one of the more marketable players in the NFL.

    was also on the list earning more than $1 million last year.

    Quarterbacks in the NFL are generally going to have a leg up on other position players when it comes to opportunities for endorsements and merchandise. They’re generally the players that the networks build storylines around. They’re the position that gets the most air time and publicity. Being the of the Dallas Cowboys also helps as its one of the most recognizable and valuable positions in all of sports.

    Dak Prescott is on the brink of one of the richest contracts in NFL when he and the Dallas Cowboys eventually settle on a long-term contract. During his rookie deal, he’s been an incredible value as the Cowboys have been one of the winningest regular season teams during his four seasons in the NFL.

    For those who reported that Dak made 50 million a year off endorsements and so should play QB for nothing, here is the reality. Dak made 2.5 , not 50.

    No matter where u stand on DAK contract issues we couldn’t ask for a classier representative to wear the star. Production notwithstanding he is everything u could ask for as far as being the face of our franchise and these traits should not be minimized.

    Absolutely. I agree a good leader. Pay the man.


    Totally agree with “built on the backs of the great Tom Landry era”. Also “winningest REGULAR season record” (however, their weak division helps a ton there). But, time to go deep into the POST SEASON NOW, Prescott. The team is STACKED, so time to produce

    To siempe44, haven’t seen any post saying Prescott “should play for nothing”, and BTW $2.5 million isn’t chicken feed. Most people don’t see that much in a LIFETIME.

    THIS YEAR, his fifth, will show if this QB is the real deal who is able to win consecutive POST SEASON games, or an overated average QB.
