Cowboys: Dak Prescott Still Not Close To Deal!
Following the news that we reported that Dak Prescott just signed a 4-year $180 Million contract extension!
News has surfaced that the Cowboys and Dak Prescott still are not close on a new deal to keep the star quarterback in Dallas long-term, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Read on…
CelebnSports247.com reports that the Cowboys and Prescott were prohibited from negotiating a new deal during the season.
Both sides were allowed to resume contract talks once Dallas’ disappointing season ended.
His brother Tad confirmed the news a few days ago, just days after it was reported that the Cowboys need to be unafraid to go all in to secure no. 4.
Sources told ESPN that the Cowboys still want to re-sign Prescott, who wants to remain in Dallas.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones acknowledged last month that Prescott is in a good negotiating position.
Jones said on 105.3 The Fan:
I don’t know how you could have any more leverage.
The biggest issue between the sides was the length of the deal. The Cowboys wanted five years; agent Todd France countered with four because impending television contracts are expected to significantly raise the salary cap in the future.
Prescott, who played this past year under the Cowboys’ franchise tag, suffered a dislocation and compound fracture of his right ankle in Week 5 against the New York Giants. He was on pace for his best statistical season, with 1,856 yards passing, nine touchdown passes, and four interceptions, but the Cowboys were 2-3 in his five starts.
The Cowboys offered Prescott a deal last year that sources said averaged $34.5 million a year, included a $50 million signing bonus, and had $110 million in guarantees. – SportsGossip
