Dak Prescott has no intentions of taking anything less if the Cowboys want to sign him for years to come.
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback has been one of the league’s biggest bargains since joining the team in 2016, but it won’t stay that way for his next contract.
According to Jane Slater of NFL Network, Prescott and his agent have no intention of accepting an offer below the current quarterback market which currently has the likes of Russell Wilson, Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers, and Carson Wentz all averaging more $30 million per year.
“I’m told that Todd France, who is the agent for Dak Prescott, they’re not taking a hometown deal. He’s completely overperformed as that overall 135th pick, so expect him to hold out, get paid what he deserves, especially when you consider what Carson Wentz got. He’s been a lot more durable, and you could argue he’s probably done a little bit more than Wentz in his time in Dallas,” Slater said on Good Morning Football.
Prescott truly believes the franchise can pay him what he’s worth and still sign other players on the squad.
