Quarterback Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys have four days to agree on a multi-year deal to keep the quarterback in the blue and silver a little longer.
Right now, Prescott will play the 2020-21 season under the franchise tag, which is worth just a hair over $31 million. But both Prescott and the team would like to keep him a Cowboy a bit longer.
According to Cowboys Insider Paul Tubbs, Prescott is looking for a deal that would keep him with Dallas until 2023, while the Cowboys would like to sign a deal for a bit longer.
It will be interesting to see if the recent Patrick Mahomes deal will have any affect on Prescott’s contract. Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs recently came to an agreement for 10 years/$503 million. It’s the largest contract in the history of professional sports.
While it’s unlikely Prescott signs a deal for that long of a period, Tubbs said it won’t be surprising if Prescott makes close to the same amount as Mahomes per year.
The Cowboys can also use the franchise tag on Prescott for the 2021 season if the two fail to make a long-term deal.
