The Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott have reached a new agreement that includes $66 million to sign and $75 million in year one — the most in NFL history.
Cowboys are reportedly giving Prescott a four-year, $160 million deal, including a record $126 million guaranteed, ESPN reports.
The first three years average $42 million per year, and the deal could be worth up to $164 million.
ESPN reports the Cowboys are placing the franchise tag on Prescott on Tuesday as a procedural matter, meaning they cannot tag him again in the future.
Prescott suffered a compound fracture during Week 5 of the 2020 NFL Season against the New York Giants.
Before his injury, Prescott started 72 straight games, including postseason appearances, for the franchise, per USA Today.
The QB hadn’t missed a contest since Dallas selected him in the fourth round, 135th overall, of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Prescott threw for 1,856 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions in just four and a half games this season. He also scored three rushing touchdowns and one receiving.
Prescott set NFL records as he passed for at least 450 yards in each of the three complete games he played before his injury.
