Things are heating up in Big D. The Dallas Cowboys reportedly offered Dak Prescott a contract worth 33 million annually with 105 million in guarantees as was reported by Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News last Friday. However, it wasn't enough to get anything long-term finalized.
Now, as the franchise tag deadline of March 12 approaches, the organization has turned up the heat in negotiations. According to ESPN's Todd Archer, the Cowboys have sent a new contract proposal to Prescott, increasing their previous offer.
Russell Wilson has the highest average salary at 35 million per season with Ben Roethlisberger just behind him at 34 million. Aaron Rodgers and Jared Goff are next at 33.5 million so this new offer to Prescott you would assume is set at that floor, if not higher.
Deadlines make deals and the contractual dance between the Cowboys and Prescott is headed towards it's the grand finale. More details to come.
