According Executive Vice President Stephen Jones, the Dallas Cowboys are planning to sign quarterback Dak Prescott to a contract extension.
“We’ve got to have a plan to ultimately extend Dak,” Jones said.
Prescott signed a four-year, $160 million contract with $126 million guaranteed in March 2021, and it seems that the team is already making plans to sign him beyond that.
Prescott has been a vital part of the Cowboys’ offense since he joined the team in 2016 as a fourth round pick. In his career so far, he has passed for 24,943 yards and 166 touchdowns. He has also rushed for 1,642 yards and 26 touchdowns. Prescott’s leadership, poise, and consistency have made him a valuable asset to the Cowboys.
The Cowboys signing Prescott to a long-term contract extension is not surprising, considering his importance to the team. Despite struggles in the playoffs.
The team already committed a significant amount of money to him in his current contract, but it seems that they are willing to invest even more in their franchise quarterback. While the details of the possible contract extension are yet to be announced, it is expected that Prescott’s new deal will make him one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league.
The question now remains, will Dak be able to lead Dallas to a Super Bowl before his career is over.
