Last offseason, Dak Prescott signed a massive four-year, $160 million contract extension with $126 million in guaranteed salary.
It’s been thirteen months since that deal was signed and Jerry Jones is not upset about it.
The Dallas Cowboys owner said he’s happy to have the 28-year-old quarterback for 2022 and beyond.
“When I look at what has happened since we’ve done (Dak’s) contract, the reps, the way Dak has evolved, what we’re doing in here to look for players to complement what he does the best,” Jones said. “That’s who, in my mind, we’re complementing whether we’re blocking them out, whether we’re basically trying to get him some field position. So yes, we’re glad we got him.”
Jones is likely loving the contract that was given since quarterbacks such as Josh Allen, Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, and Deshaun Watson have all received more guaranteed money since Prescott signed his contract.
“I’m proud we have it,” Jones said of Prescott’s contract. “Deshaun’s contract was a big one. Just reinforces that it just takes one or two teams to really covet a player and they really get those numbers on up there.”
After coming back from injury, Prescott delivered 4,449 passing yards and a career-high 37 passing touchdowns for the NFC East champions in 2021.
Unfortunately, the first playoff game for the Cowboys came in defeat as the 49ers walked out of AT&T Stadium with the victory.
