Dak Prescott's older brother rips Dallas Cowboys on social media after contract talks fail
At least one member of the Prescott family is unhappy with Dak’s team.
Tad Prescott, older brother of Dak, called out the Dallas Cowboys on social media after the team failed to reach a long-term agreement with the former Mississippi State standout.
“There is a reason I was never a @dallascowboys fan growing up or before they drafted @dak after today, who knows how much longer I’ll be cheering for them,” Tad wrote on his Twitter account.
If Dak is frustrated by the situation, he isn’t sharing that publicly. He reiterated that he’s happy to be a Cowboy in 2020 in communication with NFL Network reporter Jane Slater.
“Tells me while he did talk to Stephen Jones & try to get a deal done he’s grateful and blessed to be a Cowboy and working & moving forward to do whatever he can to help the team win a Super Bowl,” Slater tweeted.
Dak is set to play under the franchise tag in 2020. Prescott and the Cowboys had a deadline of 4 p.m. Wednesday to come to a long-term agreement. Slater reported that Dallas was offering Prescott $33-35 million annually with $110 million guaranteed. Slater also shared that Prescott disputed some of the reported numbers but did not offer details.
