Dak Prescott is still negotiating a new deal with the Dallas Cowboys but the two parties are still at an impasse over the length of the contract.
According to several reports, Dak wants a 4-year deal that would allow him to become a free agent again when he’s 31-years-old but the Cowboys are pushing for a 5-year deal.
Sources previously said the primary issue between the sides is contract length. The Cowboys want a five-year contract; Prescott and his agent, Todd France, seek four.
Former QB turned NFL analyst Chris Simms went on 105.3 The Fan’s “K & C Masterpiece” on Tuesday and claims someone in the know told him that Dak would be willing to take a 5-year deal with the Cowboys if they pay him $45 million in the final year
From what I know of the situation, and I know from some people who are in the know that he’s been offered five years, $175 million,” “He wants a four-year deal. If they do agree to a five-year deal they would like a really big number at the end of that fifth year to cover their butts for what the market might be at the position five years from now. And I’ve heard he’s asking for somewhere like north of $45 million in that fifth year.”
