Dak Prescott to play under franchise tag with Cowboys
Mississippi State alum Dak Prescott will continue to bet on himself after failing to reach a long term deal with the Dallas Cowboys by Wednesday’s deadline.
That means the former Bulldog will play the upcoming season under the exclusive franchise tender, earning a cool $31.4 million.
Reports indicate that the two parties have been in a stalemate ever since March when Dallas offered Prescott a $34.5 million deal over five years, but he wasn’t willing to sign anything longer than four years.
Prescott joins 11 other NFL players who will play under the franchise tag in 2020 after throwing for more than 4,900 yards and 30 touchdowns last season, both career highs.
