Dak Prescott signs franchise tag with Dallas Cowboys


Today, former Mississippi State Quarterback Dak Prescott made it official with the Dallas Cowboys by signing his exclusive franchise tender.

Under the tag, Prescott will make $31.4 million in 2020 unless the two sides work out a long term deal by July 15th, almost four months after the Cowboys placed the tag on the former Bulldog.

Prescott is now contractually obligated to report to training camp on time regardless of whether or not the two parties agree to an extension.

Last season, Prescott threw for more than 4,900 yards and 30 touchdowns, both of which are career highs.
