According to NFL Analyst Chris Simms, QB Dak Prescott turned down a five-year, $175M deal from the Dallas Cowboys and is seeking “north of $45M” in the final year of his new deal. (Chris Simms)
The deal would have made Prescott the highest paid QB in NFL history. It seems like Prescott and his agency remain steadfast on a particular number and are unwilling to move off that figure. Prescott will play this season on the franchise tag that will pay him $33M, but he’s still hoping to sign a long-term extension prior to the July 15 deadline. Prescott is currently ranked as the #3 QB in FantasyPros expert consensus rankings, and should be the next QB taken in fantasy leagues this season after Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes.
