Cowboys once again say Dak Prescott’s contract won’t fluctuate with performances
The burning question almost every Dallas Cowboys fan asks is whether Dak Prescott will get a good enough contract that will convince him to stay with the team. They have fears that his up-and-down season may urge the team to lower their offer to the quarterback.
Fans were simply afraid to lose their QB in free agency, and that possibility is something the team’s top brass promises will not happen.
Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio recounted one of the Cowboys executives’ recent radio interviews. He was asked whether Prescott’s recent performances affect the contract the team will offer. His answer should give plenty of encouragement to fans who are anxious about Prescott’s contract situation.
“No, it doesn’t,” COO Stephen Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, the day after Prescott threw for 397 yards against the Vikings. “This is a full body of work. He’s doing a great job. I mean, obviously, he played one of his better games that he’s ever played. They basically dared Dak to beat them. I thought he made all the plays and I thought he played an outstanding game, one of his better games he’s played.”
Prescott definitely wants a big contract, but his performances this season begs to ask whether he does deserve the big contract. His 397-yard explosion against the Cowboys gets fans hyped up, but he’s also shown mediocrity against the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers. The team will likely look at everything before leaving an offer at Prescott’s table.
Fans can only hope that the deal they’ll offer will be to the QB’s liking enough to ink it immediately.
