Dak Prescott’s Dad Celebrates Record Deal By Remembering Dak’s Prophecy As A Five-Year-Old

Dak Prescott will earn at the bare minimum $1 per second for the next four years after signing a cartoonish $160 million deal with the Cowboys, a record $126 million of which is guaranteed.

The deal is the manifestation of a two-year stare down between Prescott and owner Jerry Jones. Prescott scoffed at a reported $30 million per year offer in 2019 after the Seahawks shelled out $140 million to extend Russ and the Eagles dropped $128 million on Carson Wentz.

Now, nearly one year after his brother tragically committed suicide and Dak suffered a horrifying ankle injury, the Prescott family has something to celebrate.

Prescott’s father, Nat, added to the gravity of the deal with a quote to The Dallas Morning News.

The support for one of the most respected figures in the league flooded in in the wake of the announcement.

Time to go to work.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
