    The Dallas Cowboys knew this was coming.

    When they finally approached Dak Prescott to broach the topic of his seemingly inevitable contract extension, they did so with an initial offer in hand. While it's unknown what their first offer was, what's known is that it was met with a counteroffer from Prescott and CAA, his representation. That counteroffer was made in late May, nearly a month after Russell Wilson became the highest-paid player in NFL history with a four-year, $140 million extension from the Seattle Seahawks that includes $107 million guaranteed money.

    It, however, also happened around three weeks prior to the Philadelphia Eagles giving Carson Wentz a four-year, $128 million extension that itself includes $107 million in guarantees. It was a foregone conclusion Prescott wouldn't best Wilson's figures, which made that the ceiling — but Wentz just set a floor that carries a $32 million annual average salary (AAS) over the course of his true extension.

    With that in tow, Prescott and CAA have reportedly lobbed an offer to the Cowboys that would put the former Rookie of the Year at an AAS of $34 million, according to Clarence Hill, Jr. of Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

    Of course, this is all a part of the negotiation process, wherein the club goes low and the player goes high, with the ultimate goal of both sides eventually meeting in the middle. The reality remains Prescott will likely land a deal worth more than $30 million per year, and even that's a tough sell now, thanks to Wentz.

    Prescott's should be exactly what Carson got. Maybe 1 million more per year.

    Eagles greatly overpaid in my opinion.

    Wait, why did Wentz set the *floor* on the Dak negotiation again?

    Dak needs to factor in the financial perks that come with being the quarterback of a
    America's Team.

    Why more? Wentz is trending up if he can stay healthy while Dak has trended down. His max contract should be $25.8 million average over the total life of the deal including this year’s salary so as to match Wentz’s deal. It basically works out to a 5 year $152.8 million extension putting him under contract for 6 years at $154.8 million. Boom, $25.8 a year average for 6 years. Give him $107 million in guarantees and bonuses to match the others and there you have the fair deal for each side. I don’t like it as it’s way too much for the inconsistency and unknown future of Dak but it’s either that or let him go which I know the team won’t do. The other option is to make him play this year for $2 million and franchise him. I like this option the best as it gives us another 2 years to see who he becomes but it may cost $40 million a year to sign him in two years.

    No.

    Dak actually deserves to make what Wentz was paid.

    He's out produced him in nearly every measurable as a QB, especially the important stats.

    Anyone who thinks Dallas will extend Dak for a penny less than what Wentz got is delusional.

    Maybe Dak should wait until he wins the SB this year then he can really ask for Wilson type money.
    Prove you deserve that much Dak.

    Dak has the clear advantage for durability. If I were an Eagles fan, I would be decidedly unthrilled with the Wentz contract.

    I'm not a fan of $34mil for Dak either. Though I am encouraged with all the talk of his accuracy improving.

    You think Dak trended downward late last year from beginning of the season?
    Or that Dak trended downward from his 2nd year to his 3rd year?

    It’s the price of poker. You want Dak? Pay the premium.

    Report: Dak Prescott’s agent has “broached” $34 million per year

    With team-friendly deals like this, the Dallas Cowboys won’t need any enemies.

    Quarterback Dak Prescott‘s agent, Todd France, has “broached” a deal in the range of $34 million per year, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.


    It’s unclear whether that’s an opener, a bottom-line position, or something in between. Presumably, it reflects the new-money average on an extension, and not the total value at signing.
