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.
