Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys have been all over the news lately after reports surfaced that Dak turned down a deal that would’ve made him the highest paid player in league history. That was proven to be untrue.
According to ESPN staff writer Todd Archer, the Cowboys have made a lucrative offer to Prescott, but unlike the false reports from earlier this week, it actually won’t make him the highest paid QB in the league.
“The Cowboys have an offer that, according to sources, would make Prescott the second-highest-paid NFL quarterback in terms of average per year,” Archer wrote on ESPN. “That figure would fall behind Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who makes $35 million a season and received guaranteed money that is on par with Jared Goff’s $110 million guarantee from the Los Angeles Rams.”
The Cowboys placed an exclusive franchise tag on Prescott back in March, so if the sides can’t come to terms on a new deal, he will make over $30 million in 2020.
Prescott and the Cowboys have until July 15th to complete a deal. He’s coming off a season where he threw for 4,902 yards and 30 touchdowns.
