Dak Prescott reportedly seeking $40 million per year

Cowboys DT Christian Covington is a Player to Keep an Eye On

The development comes as the Cowboys continue to deal with Ezekiel Elliott's holdout as the fourth-year star running back seeks a hefty raise of his own.

The $32M to $35M expected for Prescott would still put him in the top-tier of quarterbacks in the National Football League for average salary per season and guarantees per Over The Cap.

We thought the Dallas Cowboys' looming contract extension puzzle was tricky before Monday's report from Jane Slater of NFL Media that QB Dak Prescott turned down an offer including $30 million annually as he seeks to be the NFL's first $40 million-per-year signal caller.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is playing hardball over his new contract and was willing to turn down $30 million, but now we know what he actually wants.

A PFT source quickly shot down the report, saying it is false based on either new money or total value at signing. It gave him a new-money average of $35 million per year.

While most pundits and fans are scoffing at Prescott's reported request, his former wide receiver Dez Bryant isn't.

If the Cowboys can't iron out a deal with Prescott or Elliott (not to mention another free-agent-to-be, Cooper) a cloud will hang over the team this coming regular season.

That'll happen. The results are too good for them and too good for the Cowboys.

Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers and Carson Wentz rank below Wilson in average annual salary.

A fourth-round pick in 2016, Prescott is headed into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract.

Prescott is just one of the contracts the Cowboys are hoping to secure before the start of the season.
