Cowboys offered Dak Prescott 33 million per year but he rejected it because he wants more

Dak Prescott wants to get paid, and he will not just settle until he likes the amount.

The Dallas Cowboys want to lock down Dak Prescott as soon as possible. Stephen Jones said he wants to get a deal done soon.

“I know he wants to get his contract in the rear view mirror and we want it too,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “We want him to be treated well, financially and respectfully. We are going to have a real urgency to get this done.”

They want him and even took a huge step in the right direction to sign him to a monster contract, but the former Mississippi State quarterback turned down the offer.

The Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott were reportedly close to a deal in September that would have paid the quarterback approximately $33 million per season, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. Then Prescott asked for more.

“I don’t want to get into the details, but we have offered him significant money,” vice president Stephen Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “The money we have offered Dak no matter how you look at it would put him as a top five quarterback in the NFL. That is the way we feel about him. He is one of the best.”

Prescott played the final season of his four-year rookie contract that paid him approximately $2.7 million in total, with $2 million in 2019. He’ll become an unrestricted free agent when the new NFL calendar begins in March.
