If you think the Cowboys star quarterback will have a soft tone with Dak Prescott during contract negotiations after suffering a devastating ankle fracture/dislocation a week ago, please think again. It appears in Jerry’s transfer and trading world, even if your opponent’s leg is stepped on, there are no restrictions.
According to a report by Jason La Canfora, during the offseason, Jerry Jones once again fully met the requirements of the licensed brand Prescott, which seems to be as much as other threats. This will be Prescott’s second year of playing as a franchise. Although his income in a year will exceed his lifetime prudence, he will actually once again not have such a long-term contract, almost every other four. The shooting guard has given his abilities.
Last offseason, Prescott and the Cowboys (Cowboys) had a long contract negotiation. In the end, Prescott signed the team for 31.9 million US dollars. . There are various reports indicating why the two parties did not agree to a long-term agreement, but the most common one is around Prescott. He hopes that the term of the agreement will be shortened so that he can sign the agreement to be signed after the signing of the television rights agreement. Reinstatement again.
Regardless of why they did not reach an agreement, Prescott became a three-pointer with only three quarterbacks participating in the franchise season. They joined Drew Blaise and Kirk, signed by the Chargers and Washington · Cousins. Neither company has a long-term contract with those franchises, which seems to be ominous for Prescott and the Cowboys.
Again, leaking this information is another strategy that Cowboys intend to use as leverage. The Cowboys reached a long-term agreement with Prescott during the offseason. Jones and his family have always expressed the hope that Prescott will become their long-term starting quarterback. However, long-term financial commitment is the only way to prove this.
The problem now is that Patrick Mahomes signed an extended contract with the Chiefs for an average of $45 million per year, and Deshaun Watson signed with the Texans An extended contract with an average of $39 million. There are reports that Prescott hoped to get an average salary of $37 million in the last offseason, but given his advantages in production and praise with Watson, the contract is likely to become the basis for new negotiations. .
If the Cowboys play Prescott with the franchise tag in the second year, it will cost them about 38 million U.S. dollars, so if they are willing to tag him, they have allocated funds for 2021. However, a player-like injury, like a compound fracture and ankle dislocation, is something that players worry about when playing without a guaranteed contract. Prescott is expected to make a full recovery in 2021, and since he plays quarterback and is very talented, there is no doubt that he will be well compensated in 2021 and beyond. But after suffering this kind of damage, Prescott may now want to reach a long-term agreement that will establish a controversial second round of negotiations during the offseason.
