Report: Dak Prescott seeking $40 million from Cowboys

Dak Prescott

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is playing hardball over his new contract and was willing to turn down $30 million, but now we know what he actually wants.

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.

The $30 million average annual salary would have put Prescott in the top five of NFL quarterback salaries, tied with Atlanta’s Matt Ryan.

Dallas is in a tough spot contract-wise. They have three key offensive players who either want or need new deals, and Dallas has reportedly made competitive offers for all of them. This report would seem to bear that out — $30 million would certainly count as solid offer for Prescott, even if he doesn’t want it.
