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.

For a dude that has yet to win anything and a real ugly injury JJ is just soft and weak great gig if you can get it
Wow. The Pokes just signed Ezekiel Elliot to a gargantuan deal, and his production fell off the side of a cliff afterwards. With this harsh reality staring them in the face, they turn right around and spend even more on their QB. With that amount of money tied up in the backfield, who will block? Who will defend?
And, after they stink up the joint with two highly paid tackling dummies, who will be watching?
This is what stupid owners do and why Dallas will fight with the Eagles for last place in the NFC Least. Starts at the top Jerry, so own it!!!!
7 players 123 mil this year. 57 million to divide between 38 guys
Loving it as a redskins fan
That leg must be looking REAL good. Dinner is on Dak, forever.
Great work Jerrah!! Got a $32M/yr player for $40M. Based on the great work of the GM it is possible that Dak can get as many playoff wins as Romo…..2.
The Cowboys are must see tv. Can’t wait for next year to watch what happens.
Just watch the games from last year. It won’t look much different.
Yeah he was grossly overpaid…but it’s not my money. Dak can probably thank that cold snap in Texas for giving Jerry a shot in the arm financially.
Bad move for the Cowboys. Prescott isn’t good enough to carry a deficient roster.
I like Dak but c’mon.. I’d pay him $30M/yr and call it a day. I think they previously offered him $33M/yr and he turned it down. Gotta know when to hold em and when to fold em.
Dude is at best an above average QB worth $30 or so mil/yr. This deal will certainly cement the Cowboys in mediocrity for the next four years.
Jerry must be looking at the division thinking he has to beat Jalen, D Jones, and who knows what with the WFT. Win the division, host a playoff game, playoffs = $$
Six more years of mediocrity- here we come! Could have done the deal two years ago for 20 % less. Now we have some of the most bloated contracts in the NFL. Overpaid RB, overpaid DE, overpaid OTs, and majorly overpaid LB.
Should have tagged and traded him for more picks and gone with Dalton at QB for a fraction of the price. Haven’t any of these NFL geniuses figured out that one of the reasons Brady has been a winner his whole career is that he plays for less than he could command?!

Isn’t it amazing how in all areas of life, people refuse to learn from the examples that are wide-open, in plain sight?
Ha! Love it! Jerry is the new Al Davis: early success, then run the team into the ground for decades. Ha!
i get why he is being paid like this, but it won’t help Dallas win more games. who gets cut to accommodate his salary?
in 3-4 years we’re gonna hear a lot of well paid QB’s complaining about not winning and getting hit too much. Russell Wilson has already set the table for milenial QB whining. rather than winning.
if the Redskins had a QB and a name, they would crush it in 2021. sadly i see them failing again.
It looks bad now but with the numbers being thrown around on the new TV deal expect the salary cap to go way up. That might be a reasonable number in a couple years.
Dak should give the Giants a 15% commission for helping pad his stats the last couple of years. The guy feasts on crap teams then craps the bed against .500 teams. The Cowboys are ass clowns, their O-line is falling apart (although if completely healthy next year it could be scary), Elliot is a petulant headcase, they aren’t going to have $$$ for Cooper soon and their defense licks balls. They should hire Kliff Kingsbury, because they are going to re-live his time at Texas Tech, a lot of 49-42 LOSSES and a lot of 7-9 records.
BTW, how much money would Dan Fouts be making today?
Dak Prescott is the black version of Kirk Cousins. Feast on the shitty teams, throw for 400 yds 4 TD’s and a pick against lowly teams. Then in the games that are out of reach make a wild attempt at a comeback and throw for 400 yds 3-4 TD’s and 2 picks. Great news for the rest of the NFC East.
