Dak Prescott signs 4-year deal with Dallas
About a day before the NFL's franchise tag deadline, the Dallas Cowboys finally reached a long-term agreement with franchise quarterback Dak Prescott. The QB signed a 4 year, $160 million deal to return to the team for a sixth season.
The deal is technically for six years, but voids to four to help the Cowboys with their salary cap. It also includes a $66 million signing bonus-- the largest in league history-- and $126 million guaranteed.
Since entering the league as a fourth round draft pick in 2016, Prescott has been one of the promising young players in the game. His dual-threat ability brings a unique element to the Cowboys' offense and he has improved each year while leading the team to a playoff win and earning two Pro Bowl selections.
Prescott played last season on the franchise tag and was a prime candidate for the tag again this year after suffering a season-ending injury. The Cowboys were noticeably worse without him in the lineup, which likely gave him leverage in this deal.
