Dak Prescott is entering the final season of his rookie contract and is reportedly targeting a extension worth at least $30 million per year.
Apparently, that was not the number he received from the Cowboys front office after Prescott told NFL Network’s Jane Slater that he and his team submitted a counter-offer to the Cowboys after rejected their initial offer.
“I can’t really say on that. It’s one from each side,” Prescott said of how close the two sides were on compensation. “So yeah, it’s my first time doing this. Ask me in a few years and I’ll know I’ll be able to tell you we sent this one, they sent this one, we’re about to get it done. But right now, I’m learning the process too and letting my team handle their business.
Apparently, things seem to be going well despite the rejection, at least, according to Jerry Jones.
The Dallas Cowboys owner spoke to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport at the Spring League Meeting in Florida and he revealed that the extension for QB Dak Prescott is “going well.”
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson pretty much changed the market with his new contract that netted him a four-year, $140 million deal, with $107 million guaranteed.
Dak isn’t aware of how deep the team is in negotiations with WR Amari Cooper, adding, “I just hope he’s catching the balls I throw.”
