As the new quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, Andy Dalton has a chance to make a lot of money in the next 11 games, and he doesn’t have to wait until the free agent market in March.
The one-year, $3 million contract that Dalton signed in May also included $4 million in incentives. Although Dak Prescott was absent from this season, theoretically all These incentives are achievable-although the 32-year-old Dalton needs to bring the Cowboys to the Super League Bowl to win the full amount.
According to people familiar with the contract, Dalton’s incentives are like this, all of which depend on playing part of the Cowboys’ offensive rebound:
- 50% of regular season game time and the Cowboys entering the playoffs: $1
- 35% of regular season game time and 50% of field game extended time: $500,000.
- 35% of regular season game time and 50% of game time in divisional playoff wins: $500,000.
- 35% of the game time of the regular season and 50% of the game time of the conference champion: $750,000.
- 35% of the regular season game time and 50% of the Super Bowl game time: $1.25 million.
The doctor told Prescott that after undergoing surgery last Sunday, he was facing four to six months of recovery due to a compound fracture and a dislocation of his right ankle facing the New York Giants. Long-time quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, Dalton succeeded in passing 111 yards with a 37-34 victory and completed 9 of 11 passes.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones (Jerry Jones) and others have made it clear that Prescott (Prescott) is still the franchise QB of the team, although the two sides will face another preparation after failing to reach a long-term contract in July. High-profile negotiations. In 2021, Prescott’s second franchise label will cost approximately $37.7 million a season.
If Dalton performs well, he may be one of the most coveted quarterbacks who really hit the free agency market in March. Other expiring contracts include Cam Newton in New England, Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett in Indianapolis, Jamis Winston in New Orleans, Mitchell Trubisky in Chicago, Ryan Fitzpatrick in Miami, Tyrod Taylor in Chargers and Joe Flacco in Jets.
Prior to the consolidation of the quarterback plan in March, the Colts, Bears and Buccaneers all expressed interest in acquiring Dalton from the Bengals through trade. The Bangladeshi finally selected Joe Burrow with the first overall pick and soon released Dalton. Sources said Dalton also received similar contract offers from the Cowboys, Jets and Jaguars.
Dalton chose Dallas, and despite Prescott’s perseverance-he had never missed four seasons of NFL games before his injury last week-Dalton seems unlikely to see this field. Dalton recently established a home in Dallas and saw learning opportunities for a talented offensive team that has the opportunity to enter the playoffs under the leadership of new coach Mike McCarthy.
Now Dalton has become the focus of the 2-3 Cowboys, but still leads the struggling NFC East. His first game was against the Arizona Cardinals at AT&T Stadium on Monday night.
