Dak Prescott Gets Huge Offer From Cowboys Before Deadline
Dak Prescott received a massive offer from the Dallas Cowboys right before the July 15th contract extension deadline.
The proposed deal would pay the former Mississippi State standout between $33 and $35 million annually – with more than $100 million guaranteed.
I’m told the final offer on the table for Dak Prescott is between 33-35M annually with over 100M guaranteed. While there have still been no discussions between the two that’s the deal the #Cowboys have presented ahead of tomorrow’s deadline per a source informed.

Prescott and the Cowboys have until 1:00 p.m. PT time to come to an agreement. If they do not, Prescott will be locked into a one-year deal that will pay him $31.4 million next season.
Should Dallas opt to tag Prescott again next season, that one-year deal would be worth roughly $38 million in 2021-22.
In 2019-20, Prescott had the best statistical season of his career. He recorded 4,902 yards and 30 touchdowns, while throwing only 11 interceptions.
Unfortunately, Prescott’s on-field development did not translate into team success. The Cowboys failed to make the postseason and finished 8-8 in the NFC East behind the Philadelphia Eagles.
Jason Garrett was subsequently let go and former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was hired in his place.
Based on the success McCarthy originally had with Aaron Rodgers, he and Prescott should be a good match. However, time will tell if Dallas will actually be able to ink Prescott to a long enough deal to allow them to see what the Prescott-McCarthy partnership is actually capable of.
