Dak Prescott has repeatedly played well and made it clear he can perform at a high level despite not having his contract situation sorted out. He also might not be as greedy as some may think he is.
According to a report from FOX’s Pam Oliver, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback has said that he’s not playing to be the highest-paid quarterback in the league. Moreover, Oliver says Prescott doesn’t feel he can ask for that type of money until he’s won a Super Bowl.
Pam Oliver on FOX: "(Dak) said when all is said and done, he does not necessarily expect to be the highest paid QB…Prescott said, 'I've never played for money. That's not what makes me happy.' He doesn't think he can ask for those kinds of riches if he hasn't won a Super Bowl."

This is exactly what agents are for. They can look like the bad guy and demand money so the player can look humble and not have their image tarnished.
The 26-year-old is in the final season of his rookie deal and set to be an unrestricted free agent after the season. Through two games this year, Prescott is looking like an MVP candidate. He threw for three touchdowns on Sunday and has seven this season.
