Details of the Dak Prescott contract show that he got a very favorable deal compared to others

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Dak Prescott cashed in. The Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott finally agreed to a deal. The fact that the Cowboys will have Prescott for the next four years is a good thing. The fact that the Cowboys had to pay what they did is the result of the quarterback market being what it is, and the fact that they whiffed on getting a financially better deal done earlier. The structure of the deal is not overly-complicated. Mike Florio does a great job of laying it out in this article at PFT so we’ll just summarize the highlights. The deal is...

Dak Prescott’s new contract is a win-win for both the Cowboys front office and their star quarterback

Photo by Tom Pennington/ Good things are worth the wait, at least that’s what the Cowboys hope. On March 8th, 2021, the Dallas Cowboys agreed to terms with Dak Prescott. We can now rest easy knowing this team is hanging on to their young star quarterback. Cowboys are giving Dak Prescott a four-year, $160 million deal, including a record $126 million guaranteed, source tells ESPN. The first three years average $42 million per year.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 8, 2021 Gone are any notions that the front office led by it’s wild card owner Jerry Jones...

Report: Dallas Cowboys agree to 4-year, $160 million contract with Dak Prescott

Photo by Patrick Smith/ QB1 is here to stay. Five years ago the Dallas Cowboys tried twice to draft what they thought could be a quarterback to develop for a future beyond Tony Romo. They missed on Paxton Lynch. They missed on Connor Cook. Ultimately they settled for Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott in the fourth round. It has been said that the third time is the charm. The other side of that three coin is that that is how many strikes you get before you are ruled out. This offseason marked the third one - and the most pivotal - in which the Cowboys could negotiate a...

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ The Cowboys have had all kinds of issues over the years, but having a good quarterback isn’t one of them. We all believe in our heart of hearts that hanging on to Dak Prescott is the right move for the Dallas Cowboys. Hold on a second, allow me to rephrase that statement a bit to reflect the many opinions expressed in the comment section of just about every Prescott contract article: Some fans strongly believe that hanging on to Dak Prescott is the correct move for the Dallas Cowboys. Whether we believe Dak is worth $40 million, $35 million, or...

Report: Cowboys will tag Dak Prescott if they can’t reach new deal, positivity continues to linger

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Not really news, just confirmation of the Cowboys plans. We have reached an important week for the Dallas Cowboys as they have a franchise-altering decision to make. This is the third offseason in a row in which the team has been able to negotiate a long-term extension with quarterback Dak Prescott, and to this point they have yet to find the proper middle ground. The reason that this week holds a high level of importance is because of Tuesday’s franchise tag deadline. NFL teams wishing to place the tag on players for the 2021 season will...

This week will take the Dak Prescott situation in one of three directions for the Dallas Cowboys

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports We will get an answer of sorts this week. We are getting a bit deeper into the month of March and soon enough there is going to be action within the National Football League happening in every direction. This month will bring free agency which is generally an exercise that the Dallas Cowboys have observed like a wallflower before trying to find bargains. Before all of that begins America’s Team is going to be forced to make a decision one way or another and it will have to do with the most important player on their team in Dak Prescott....

Report: NFL salary cap may not be defined soon, would result in franchise tag deadline extending

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Things are always changing. This week has only just begun and it is potentially already going to change in terms of plans, or rather would-be plans, for the Dallas Cowboys. By now you are well aware that the deadline for the Cowboys to place the franchise tag on Dak Prescott - something they would be doing for the second year in a row - is Tuesday, March 9th. The last year, since about the time of the first tag, has been extremely fluid in the National Football League as the world has been navigating and combatting the Covid-19...

Cowboys, NFL wandering in the fog

Cowboys, NFL wandering in the fog

Photo by John Tlumacki/The Boston Globe via The lack of data makes everything more risky. It’s been a while since I rolled out a military analogy to discuss the Dallas Cowboys. I used to do that a lot, but got away from it because football is a game, after all. Still, this strange offseason just begs to bring up one in particular, what is called the “fog of war”. What it means is that in a conflict between armed forces, decisions have to be made on limited, and at times nearly nonexistent, information. That is not a reliable path to victory. It is why things like...

The franchise tag deadline doesn’t matter for Dak Prescott, Cowboys, and that’s a problem - Kevin Sherrington, Dallas Morning News The problem in the Prescott negotiations. Because I have to tell you, I don’t get the impression either side feels motivated. If I’d had deadlines with these kinds of penalties back in college, I’d still be holding out with my business law professor. The negotiations between Dak and Jerry Jones are no less interminable. No matter what you may think of Dak — and you’re...

Dallas Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb is staying ready this offseason

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ Good to see. From the moment that the Dallas Cowboys drafted CeeDee Lamb last year the expectations were insanely high. It is certainly unfortunate that we didn’t get an opportunity to see him flex all of his powers as he operated for most of his rookie season without Dak Prescott throwing him the ball. Many Cowboys fans believe that had CeeDee had that opportunity that some rookie records could have been in jeopardy of falling. Ultimately we will have to wait to see for Lamb to properly put together what is hopefully a career that one day...

Cowboys defensive free agents 2021: Who stays and who goes?

Photo by Elsa/ Which defensive players are sticking around? Free agency is just around the corner. NFL teams will look to add pieces to their roster that will optimize their chances of success going forward. For the Dallas Cowboys, signing outside free agents isn’t something they’ve been real heavy on in recent years. They do bring back a handful of their own free agents as they look for low cost purchases to round out their roster. On Saturday, we examined the Cowboys offensive free agents and attempted to predict which players are resigned, and which ones sign...

2021 Cowboys scouting report: Virginia LB Charles Snowden

Photo by Ryan M. Kelly/ One of the more intriguing prospects in this draft has a lot to offer Before getting started, I have to disclose that Virginia’s Charles Snowden is my top draft crush this year, so get ready for some gushing. A native of Washington DC, Snowden opted to stay close to home when he committed to the Virginia Cavaliers. He joined the first full recruiting class for a new coaching staff looking to rebuild the program, and by the time Snowden graduated his team had gone a combined 28-22, including a division title and a bowl victory.

How the Cardinals signing of J.J. Watt could benefit the Cowboys

How the Cardinals signing of J.J. Watt could benefit the Cowboys

Photo by Norm Hall/ Could the Cowboys go after a pair of free agent Cardinals? With free agency on the horizon, it's no shock that the Dallas Cowboys have work to do retaining their own players as well as looking for talent to add to the roster. Now that J.J. Watt has signed with the Arizona Cardinals, Cowboys fans can refocus their attention on players the Cowboys can actually sign. And as luck would have it, the signing of Watt may have opened the door for the Cowboys to pursue two Cardinal players who are now free agents, one on offense and defense. The idea has been...

Cowboys offensive free agents 2021: Who stays and who goes?

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Which offensive players are sticking around? Free agency is here. And with that comes a new opportunity to acquire players who the front office believes will help their football team. The Dallas Cowboys aren’t typically big spenders in free agency, and with more limited cap resources this offseason, that’s not likely to change. Not only do the Cowboys need to be thrifty in perusing outside free agents, but they’re going to have to be careful in what they spend on their own free agents. Today, we’re going to take a look at the Cowboys...
