The latest: According to National Football League insider and analyst Michael Lombardi, quarterback Dak Prescott recently turned down an offer that would have averaged around $30M per season. For Eagles fans and opposing NFC franchises, the Cowboys overpaying for Prescott would be a win, while making it less likely that Dallas is able to keep the quarterback, Ezekiel Elliott, and Amari Cooper. That would mean more than $30 million per season for Prescott.
NFL Network's Jane Slater tweeted on Monday afternoon that Prescott, who has started every game over the last three years for Dallas, has turned down a contract extension valued at $30 million per year.
ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio, however, reported that this was false by any standard.More news: NZ facing credibility test on climate crisis and Pacific
Even though Jared Goff was the top overall selection by the Los Angeles Rams from the NFL Draft back in 2016, Dak Prescott will go down as one of the biggest steals that year after the Dallas Cowboys managed to snag him in the fourth round. Dallas isn't going to give Dak $40 million, and the fourth-year pro knows that.
Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers and Carson Wentz rank below Wilson in average annual salary.

It would appear that Prescott is hoping to be able to shoot for the stars contract wise and land somewhere between Wentz and Russell Wilson for average per season.
Dak is entering the final season of his rookie, four-year contract that will pay him a little more than $2 million.
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.More news: Watch Tenacious D And Jack White Meet Up For ‘Jack Gray’ Collaboration
