*Note: I gave my thoughts on my YouTube channel earlier today…*
I’m glad Dak Prescott FINALLY secured the bag.
The Dallas Cowboys and Prescott have agreed to a four-year, $160 million contract, including $126 million guaranteed. Prescott’s signing bonus is $66 million, the highest in NFL history, with a record $75 million due in the first year.
Boy, what I would give to be Prescott’s agent now.
Look, I know that Dak is overpaid. Blame the QB market, as it gets higher year, after year, after year.
The thing is that if the Cowboys would have extended Dak when he had a few years left on his rookie deal, they would have had him on for a discount. Instead of having some cap flexibility in the years to come, some parts may be compromised in terms of personnel.
Blame that on team owner Jerry Jones.
The same Jerry Jones who didn’t learn his lesson from the Emmitt Smith impasse in 1992, yet rewarded Tony Romo rather handsomely with a few years left on his deal. Think Dak didn’t notice the love Jones showered Romo when he was not really deserving of it?
Well for what it’s worth, at least Cowboys fans don’t have to worry about this ending terribly. Goddammit.
Again, congrats to Dak getting his money. You know he is somewhere right now saying this to who all are listening:
