Wednesday’s deadline for franchise-tagged gamers to signal multi-calendar year deals came and went without any change in status for Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.
He will become the 3rd quarterback to participate in out a season beneath the conditions of a tag — Drew Brees and Kirk Cousins are the other individuals — and be set for both one more tag, a prolonged-expression offer or unrestricted free of charge agency once the 2020 period comes to an stop. Prescott has signed his tender and will make $31.4 million this period as a final result.
Talks about an extension have been likely on considering the fact that Prescott’s third period arrived to an conclusion, but reviews indicated that this year’s force failed in section since the Cowboys wished a 5-calendar year deal even though Prescott was seeking for four many years. The failure to get a offer performed did not direct to a rancorous reaction from Prescott on Wednesday night time.
“I’m a Cowboy and couldn’t be happier,” Prescott said, by means of Jori Epstein of USAToday.com. “I seem ahead to performing together Mentor [Mike] McCarthy, the employees, and my teammates to be the very best workforce we can be in pursuit to our target of a Super Bowl.”
One more tag in 2021 would have a salary of $37.68 million and thriving in McCarthy’s offense would probably press the cost of a extended-phrase offer increased than it was this offseason, so Prescott has plenty of factors to really feel fantastic about what the future holds even if he did not get the offer you he required this time all-around.
