Dak Prescott knows his worth and is not willing to leave any money on the table.
The Cowboys’ signal-caller reportedly turned down an offer this past weekend that had an average value of $33 million per year, but it hasn’t deterred the franchise from trying once again.
ESPN writer Todd Archer reported on Monday that the team sent out a new proposal that will be more than the previous $33 million per year offer and likely somewhere within the range of $33.5 million – which is the number Aaron Rodgers and Jared Goff currently are making on their respective contracts.
“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 million) have the highest average salaries followed by Aaron Rodgers and Jared Goff ($33.5 million). The Cowboys’ new proposal would likely at least be in the Rodgers and Goff neighborhood, if not more, since Prescott’s side turned down $33 million.”
In 2019, Prescott racked up 4,902 yards, 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions while adding 277 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground.
Despite his number, he could only lead the team to a 8-8 finish after the team started the year 3-0.
