Michael Lombardi of Athletic said that Dak Prescott’s negotiation for an extension just hit the rock bottom. Sources told Lombardi that Prescott refused an offer for an average annual value of $30 million.
In the summer, Cowboys didn’t make progress in talks with top extension players- Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper. However, another report has emerged that Cowboys have made a good stride at reaching a long term agreement with Amari Cooper.
Michael Lombardi on his twitter account wrote that if Dak Prescott turns down the $30 million offer, he is a nut, given that he is not among the top five quarterbacks.
A recent report has indicated that Cowboys would pay Prescott like top five quarterbacks. Matt Ryan, who is the fifth top-paid QB, get an annual average value of $30 million.
The problem seems to originate from what Cowboys had promised. They are not even close to $94.5 million what Falcon gave Ryan. While Lombardi is calling Prescott nut, it is wise to examine the reason why he turned down the offer before coming to any conclusion.
Despite all that, it’s fair to say that Prescott is far from a perfect passer, and the $30 million offer is just within his fair market value.
