Dak Prescott, Cowboys reach four-year deal
One of the best quarterbacks to ever line up under center for the Mississippi State Bulldogs is now a very rich man.
As first reported by the NFL Network, Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms on a new four-year contract worth $160 million, 126 million of that guaranteed.
The deal, which is technically for six years but voids to four to help Dallas against the salary cap, can be worth up to $164 million with two key details: a no trade clause and a no franchise tag provision.
After playing under the tag in 2020, Prescott will average $42 million per year for the first three years of a front-loaded deal before redoing the deal in year four.
His season was cut short by a gruesome injury to his right ankle which required surgery, but the Cowboys reportedly have full confidence in his ability to make a full recovery for the 2021 campaign.
