The Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott have finally reached an agreement on a contract. The contract is for a whopping $160 million over four years, with $126 million guaranteed. ESPN’s Adam Schefter says the deal includes a no-trade clause.
Dallas used its franchise tag on Prescott last year and paid him $31.4 million. The 27-year-old quarterback suffered a serious leg injury in Week 5 against New York Giants and missed the rest of the season.
Still, after the injury, the Cowboys wanted to keep Prescott. If the sides were unable to reach a long-term agreement, the quarterback would have made $37.7 million in 2021.
A fourth-round pick in 2016, Prescott has passed for 17,634 yards, 106 touchdowns, and 40 interceptions over five seasons in the NFL. When healthy, Prescott is the best quarterback in the NFC East. With Prescott’s contract issues behind them, the Cowboys can attempt to address other roster moves to try and bounce back to a playoff contender in 2021.
