Cowboys' contract hell worsens after Dak Prescott rejects extension

Cowboys WR Jon'Vea Johnson's Stock Drops After Preseason Opener

Cowboys WR Jon'Vea Johnson's Stock Drops After Preseason Opener

According to Michael Lombardi of The Athletic, Prescott allegedly turned down a deal that would pay him approximately $30 million per year.

Jane Slater of the NFL Network is reporting that Dak wants $40 million per season, which would make him the highest paid quarterback in a league that includes Tom Brady. If true, Prescott would've tied Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan as the sixth-highest annual salary among active players at the position. She tweets that the number is closer to $34-$35 million.

"For somebody to say you can only take so much because of the salary cap or you can only do this or that, I don't know how fair that is to say", Prescott told USA Today.

Both he and wide receiver Amari Cooper are slated to be free agents next year and running back Ezekiel Elliott is still in the midst of his holdout as he also hopes for a new deal with two years remaining on his current contract. Prescott and Cooper are present at training camp.

While Prescott's career completion percentage of 66.1 and passer rating of 96.0 are above average, his rookie season in 2016 - when threw 23 touchdown passes compared to just four interceptions - was by far his best.
