Quarterback Dak Prescott wants to be with Cowboys ‘forever’
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is in the final year of his rookie deal, and will get a sizeable raise at some point. But when?
Prescott, 25, seems unconcerned about how long negotiations will take.
“I mean, I want to be a Cowboy forever,” Prescott said Wednesday night, via video from Joe Trahan of WFAA. “I think the people who are doing the deal feel the same way, so to me, it’s no rush. I know it’ll get done.”
Once the deal is done, Prescott will certainly become the highest-paid player in team history, topping the deal defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence signed earlier this offseason. But how much is Prescott worth?
The Seahawks just made Russell Wilson the highest-paid player in the NFL at $35 million per season and $107 million guaranteed. Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan also make over $30 million per season.
Thing is, all four of them have taken their teams to the Super Bowl, and Ryan is the only one who hasn’t won a ring, though the Falcons quarterback did win league MVP honors.
Prescott isn’t nearly as accomplished as them, though he has led the Cowboys to the playoffs on multiple occasions. He hasn’t gotten his team past the divisional round, but the Cowboys do have three straight winning seasons, with two playoff berths under Prescott.
The Cowboys made Prescott a fourth-round draft pick in 2016. He is 32-16 as a starter in the regular season, with 10,876 passing yards, 67 touchdowns, 25 interceptions and a 96.0 passer rating.
