Dak Prescott seeking $40 million from Cowboys



Quarterback Dak Prescott #4 of the Dallas Cowboys walks off the field after losing the NFC Divisional Round playoff game to the Los Angeles Rams at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on January 12, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

According to Jane Slater of NFL Network, Prescott is seeking $40 million annually from the Cowboys, which would comfortably make him the NFL's highest-paid quarterback in terms of annual value. On the heels of rumors that Prescott turned down a $30 million per year deal, we now know what Prescott is seeking.

Whether or not Jerry Jones grants him his wish is what we're waiting to find out.

If Prescott were to take the $30 million offer, he would have been earning roughly the same salary as Atlanta Falcons quarterback and former Super Bowl runner-up Matt Ryan.

Dak Prescott wasn't kidding when he said he won't be giving the Dallas Cowboys a so-called "hometown deal".

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. "Because with gambling, with everything going into this league, everything is going to continue to keep going up". Prescott and Cooper are present at training camp.

The Cowboys are 32-16 with Prescott starting, and in his three years with the franchise he's completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 10,876 yards, with 67 touchdowns and 25 interceptions.
