Report: Cowboys Send New Contract Offer to Dak Prescott

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.

With the franchise tag deadline coming Thursday, the Cowboys have sent a new proposal to the agent of Dak Prescott in hopes of kick-starting talks on a multi-year deal, according to a source. Russell Wilson ($35 million) and Ben Roethlisberger ($34… https://t.co/OiEWEcpBnI

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.

What do you think?

  1. Cowboys front office screwed themselves to some degree by NOT having a good, functional BACKUP QB, to possibly compete with Dak. So now GREEDY Dak has the upper hand in these negotiations. Of course Dak is not the only greedy player. These people are making more in one year than the vast majority of Americans can make in 700 YEARS.

    LET THAT SINK IN FOLKS!

    The greed is OUT OF CONTROL! Anyone else getting turned off?

    • You got that right these players are way to greedy the ones that are getting screwed is the fans because who do you think will be paying for all this when ticket prices go up and all the other things that go with it fans should be telling the NFL either the price that we pay for your over priced games comes down or we will not buy anymore of of your garbage to me the fans have all the control not the owners or players but the fans because without us they have nothing.

  2. I could care less if Dak stays or goes. I just don’t want the Cowboys overpaying for an average at best QB who has done nothing but put up stats. In my book you don’t get the kind of money he is wanting until you start winning championships. Overpaying for Dak is guaranteeing that you don’t have money to invest in players to put around him. Lets be clear….Dak is not Tom Brady….he is not putting this team on his shoulders and taking them to the promised land. Last time I checked Belicheck is not coaching up the rest of the team either. No knock on McCarthy. It remains to be seen what he can do in regards to making the most of the talent on the squad. I am not high on the idea of rolling with Dak if he doesn’t have a fully loaded offense around him.

  3. Man stop it! No one gets paid based on championship anymore it all about stats and position. If you ask me the QBs are the only ones who when In the CBA. It the only position were mediocrity is rewarded. No that Dak is mediocre but the pay scale based on the CBA Calls for him to be the highest paid

  4. Dak has had 4 years of opportunity to at least make some noise in the playoffs and he has not taken this team anywhere. There is so much more to the QB position than just stats. Knowing when to audible, making the “right” play adjustment, etc. He is very good much of the time taking us from the 20 yd line to their 40 yd line….then we just self destruct. The Aaron Rodgers’, Tom Brady’s, Mahomes’, Drew Brees’, all know how to punch it in when given the opportunity. He just is not a closer…. he is not worth anywhere near the same pay range as these other QBs. Move on please. The rest of us have to prove ourselves or we don’t get the $$$. He certainly is not on the same league….at least at this point in his career as the elite QBs.

    • I totally agree. I also think we did not see all that Dak has to offer last year. Whether it was a coaching decision or Dak making a business decision once he realized he was not getting paid last year…he seemed far more reluctant to run the ball than he has in the past.

  5. Dak has never had a losing season with the Dallas Cowboys. I give Dak a ton of credit for betting on himself and basically working for 1 million a year as a 4th rd compensatory pick. We now say Dak is comparable to Goff and Wentz who went 1 & 2 in the same Draft.

    In my view, there is a lot more wrong with the Dallas Cowboys than Dak.
    1) Coaching – I suppose we think Garrett and Linehan were superior coaches. For that matter, Marinelli and Richard had their holes. Think LA Rams running all over us in the playoffs. Definitely Dak’s fault.
    2) In those 4 years of Dak, we seem to forget the great moves of our Front Office. Example: WR by committee. Draft Taco Charlton and Trysten Hill. How many of you bought into that? That’s Dak’s fault.
    3) Speaking of getting run over, where was our defense last year? Dak’s fault. He did that too.
    4) Special Teams was ranked worst in the NFL. It was Dak’s fault that we held on to Maher forever.
    5) That blocked punt in New England, that sealed the game. Dak’s fault.
    6) Dallas had the 2nd most dropped passes by the WR corps in the NFL. Dak should have caught those passes.

    I’m not homering on Dak:
    Was Dak inaccurate? Yes.
    Should Dak have run more at times? Yes.

    On the other side:
    Did Dak improve on the deep ball and his accuracy? Yes

    My point is that there is enough blame to go around and if you only blame Dak then your head is stuck up somewhere.
    The best part is none of the fanbase has anything to do with negotiations or contracts but some of the fanbase thinks they are the GM.
    They’re not!
    I hope Dak gets 35 or 36 million per year with 110 million guaranteed for 4 years.
    That way all the GM fans’ heads will explode for the next season.
    Come next year, Dak will be surpassed by the contracts of DeShaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes.
    When Watson passes Dak and hasn’t won a championship, what will be said?
