Report: Dallas Cowboys Offer Dak Prescott Richest Contract in NFL History
The Cowboys are willing to guarantee the 26-year-old QB $105 million
In order to keep one of their biggest stars in the Lone Star State, the Dallas Cowboys are reportedly willing to offer up the richest contract in the history of the National Football League.
According to Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys have offered quarterback Dak Prescott a contract with an average value of $33 million per year.
As part of the deal, the Cowboys are willing to guarantee the 26-year-old QB $105 million.
According to ProFootballTalk, if Prescott chooses to sign the deal, it will be the richest contract in league history in terms of guaranteed money at the time signing, besting the pacts for quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers.
“For Prescott’s deal, the devil will reside in details like signing bonus and fully-guaranteed salaries and fully-guaranteed roster bonuses and other fully-guaranteed payments,” according to PFT. “Regardless, an average value of $33 million would put him at the top of the all-time contractual stack.”
If Prescott doesn’t accept the offer, it’s possible the Cowboys will resort to using the franchise tag to keep him in Big D.
It’s a ridiculous amount of money to be sure, but the Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones can afford it.
Though the Cowboys went 8-8 last season and failed to qualify for the postseason, Dallas is still one of the NFL’s most popular teams and the organization is estimated to be worth more than $5.5 billion.
