Cowboys QB Prescott turns down $30million-per-year offer

Recap2-hero Dak Prescott Rumored To Have Turned Down $30 Million A Year Extension With Cowboys

Similar to Goff, Prescott most likely feels confident enough in the Cowboys paying him at some point since it's tough to imagine where Dallas would have been without him over the last three years.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is reportedly seeking a contract extension worth $40 million a year.

NFL Network's Jane Slater tweeted on Monday afternoon that Prescott, who has started every game over the last three years for Dallas, has turned down a contract extension valued at $30 million per year.

The Cowboys and Dak Prescott apparently aren't close on a new deal, but how far apart they are remains a question.

Whether the Cowboys are in a position, or can create the salary-cap room, to sign Prescott while negotiating with holdout running back Ezekiel Elliott and wide receiver Amari Cooper is unclear.

A subsequent clip captured the streamer's return and explanation of events: "Yeah, I got swatted". Giersdorf returned to the stream, telling friends, "They came in with guns, bro.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio, however, reported that this was false by any standard. It gave him a new-money average of $35 million per year.

Whatever the number is, Prescott is expected to become the highest-paid player in team history but not the highest-paid player in National Football League history.

Dallas fans can say whatever they want about believing that Prescott is the better quarterback, but Goff's numbers from the previous two seasons alone make him seem like the better option under center, meaning he would clearly deserve to make more money.

It would appear that Prescott is hoping to be able to shoot for the stars contract wise and land somewhere between Wentz and Russell Wilson for average per season.

A fourth-round pick in 2016, Prescott is headed into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract.
