Dak Prescott is going to get PAID!
The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly working toward a contract extension with quarterback Dak Prescott that would “approach $30 million annually,” according to Clarence E. Hill Jr., Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
The report goes on to state that the team has made “more progress” toward a new deal with Prescott than with wide receiver Amari Cooper.
“We are sold on Dak,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the “Rich Eisen Show” on Monday. “We do want to have him for the long term. We think he is worthy of investing in for the long term. He is going into his fourth year now in the NFL.
“When you look at the snaps he’s had, when you look at the situations he’s been in, when you look at, first of all, how he got here, and then you see really how he has performed … we see real upside in Dak.”
Aside from extending Dak, the Cowboys front office still has a bunch of work to do with Corner Byron Jones and linebacker Jaylon Smith both entering the final year of their contracts.
Not to mention, star running back Ezekiel Elliott is sure to want a new deal although his fifth-year option keeps him with the club until 2020.
