Dak Prescott’s Brother Confirms Massive Contract Offer To Cowboys QB (TWEET)
We now have a confirmed report that the massive rumored 5-year deal that Dak Prescott received from the team was indeed real and happened.
Tad Prescott took to Twitter on Tuesday and confirmed that his brother recieved the long-term deal.
“Heard @DanGrazianoESPN say on @GetUpESPN that @dak could have taken a Goff or Wentz like contract last year., Those 2 both were offered 4yr extensions, @dak was being offered 5,” Prescott tweeted Tuesday.
Both sides could not come to terms on a deal last offseason, mainly because the team wanted Dak for five years, while the QB only wanted four years. Prescott wanted less years so he could once again test the market when he turns 30-years-old.
Prescott decided to bet on himself and play the 2020 campaign on his fully-guaranteed $31.4 million franchise tag, but things went awry as suffered a right ankle compound fracture and dislocation which requires 4-6 months of rehabilliation.
The team and Prescott now sit in the same position as last year as the sides can either come to an agreement, or the Cowboys can pay him even more on a larger franchise tag. This will be the final season they can tag him before he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
