After turning down $30 million per year offer, Dak Prescott reportedly seeking deal to make him NFL's highest-paid player
Dallas has a chance to lock up Dak Prescott to a long-term deal before the signal-caller can hit free agency, but the Cowboys starting quarterback isn’t willing to come cheap.
Reports out of Dallas last week claim Prescott turned down a long-term deal that would have paid Prescott $30 million annually and while some couldn’t believe that speculation, Jane Slater of NFL Media is now reporting that not only is that information accurate but that Dak wants a lot more than $30 million a year.
Russell Wilson is currently the NFL’s highest-paid player with an annual salary of $35 million, Prescott is reportedly asking Dallas to pay him $40 million annually, according to Slater.
During his three seasons in Dallas, Prescott has thrown for 10,878 yards while completing just over 66 percent of his passes with 67 touchdowns and 25 interceptions. He’s also rushed for 944 yards and 18 touchdowns during that time. The Cowboys drafted Prescott in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Prescott has led Dallas to first place in the NFC East twice and has a 1-2 career NFL playoff record after three seasons.
