Cowboys' Dak Prescott turning down over $30M per season?

Recap1-hero

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4) on the sideline against the San Francisco 49ers during the fourth quarter at Levi's Stadium.

According to Jane Slater of NFL Network, not only did Prescott turn down $30 million per year, but he's seeking $40 million per year instead.

Whether the Cowboys are in a position, or can create the salary-cap room, to sign Prescott while negotiating with holdout running back Ezekiel Elliott and wide receiver Amari Cooper is unclear. It gave him a new-money average of $35 million per year.

Dallas fans can say whatever they want about believing that Prescott is the better quarterback, but Goff's numbers from the previous two seasons alone make him seem like the better option under center, meaning he would clearly deserve to make more money.

ProFootballTalk.com's Charean Williams reported, citing her own sources, that Prescott did not demand $40 million per year.

Prescott is seeking a deal closer to $40 million per season, which would reset the market for quarterbacks.

Prescott is just one of the contracts the Cowboys are hoping to secure before the start of the season.

If Prescott lands a deal that averages at least $30M per season, he'll join Matt Ryan, Wentz, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger and Russell Wilson as the highest-paid signal callers in the sport.

Dak is entering the final season of his rookie, four-year contract that will pay him a little more than $2 million. Wentz recently signed an extension - ahead of his team-option season - that includes an average of $32 million and a promise north of $66.4 million, ranked fifth and fourth among all National Football League passers, respectively.
