Quarterback Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys are reeling after dropping each of their past three games. In fact, Dallas has lost seven of 10 since opening the season 3-0.
This hasn’t stopped widespread rumors from surfacing regarding Prescott’s next contract. The 26-year-old quarterback is in the midst of what would be a career-best season.
He’s tallied a league-best 4,122 passing yards to go with 27 total touchdowns and 11 interceptions through 13 games.
Now, according to former New York Jets general manager and current media personality Mike Tannenbaum, this could lead to the impending free agent becoming filthy rich.
The longtime NFL executive noted just recently that the Cowboys will ultimately offer Prescott $400 million over 10 seasons, setting the mark for total value, average annual salary and and years on a contract.
This seems to be an absolutely ridiculous and somewhat arbitrary number.
Matt Ryan currently holds the record for total value at $150 million. In terms of average annual salary, Seahawks quarterback and MVP candidate Russell Wilson stands alone at $35 million.
We know that the quarterback market continues to reset itself on a never-ending loop. But the idea of Prescott getting $400 million over 10 seasons seems absurd.
Then again, everything the Cowboys’ front office is doing right now doesn’t seem to make a whole lot of sense.
