Dez Bryant Sends Message To The Cowboys About Dak Prescott

Prescott is seeking a deal closer to $40 million per season, which would reset the market for quarterbacks.

Reports on Monday morning suggested Prescott wanted that unprecedented kind of cash in a new deal from the Dallas Cowboys, but several reports have now surfaced refuting those claims.

The Cowboys are now trying to negotiate new deals for running back Ezekiel Elliott, who is not with the team at training camp and is holding out in this dispute.

There are conflicting reports on exactly how much Prescott is seeking, but NFL Network noted the number could be around $34 million to $35 million.

On Aug. 12, it was reported that Prescott, also drafted in 2016 - and due for a new contract in 2020 as a non-first round pick - was offered a contract worth more than $30 million.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio, however, reported that this was false by any standard. Dallas isn't going to give Dak $40 million, and the fourth-year pro knows that.

The Cowboys are straddled with the likelihood that they might have to overpay a quarterback who will never be at that level.

If Prescott reaches the lower end of that range, he would be up there with Ben Roethlisberger in average salary and surpass Aaron Rodgers, Carson Wentz and Matt Ryan. That would mean more than $30 million per season for Prescott. His rookie year was arguably his best, in fact his Total QBR has dropped in each of his first three seasons.

Since entering the National Football League as a fourth round pick in 2016, Prescott owns a 32-16 record, 66.1 completion percentage, 96.0 passer rating, 14 game-winning drives and hasn't missed a start.
