It doesn’t matter if Duck Prescott runs out of a long-term contract.
Even the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys has yet to sign an exclusive franchise badge, and in the words of Jerry Jones, a 26-year-old pen on paper – of any quality – doesn’t seem to be on the horizon.
However, to quote Jones’ true thoughts, the cowboys were prepared for such a scenario; not only Prescott’s apparent reluctance to put tattoo ink on his plate, but also the financial implications of the lease.
It’s not on the priority list, as you can imagine, everything we deal with and do with design, said the cowboy owner/director in a pre-conference meeting on ESPN.com Tuesday. So I don’t have a calendar, but I don’t care. Again, there are no surprises; no surprises about the height of the franchise [the hat]; no surprises about the fact that we are sitting here without agreeing on our long-term situation.
The exact number of labels varied when it was released on the 16th. Mars. Many sources of information said it was worth about $33 million, while others said it was worth $31.5 million. In fact, it was slightly lower – about $ 26.824 million, which is the average NFL salary among the top five Buy More salaries.
But on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL network reported that the number had been underestimated until the 17th minute. April, when the period before the signing of the agreement ended with a limited number of free agents. The actual figure for Duck crystallized at $31.409 million for the 2020 campaign.
Cowboys and Prescott were in the field until the 15th. July is the time to conclude a multi-year agreement. Otherwise, a double professional will be forced to throw in the towel and resume negotiations in 2021.
Stuck in these talks since last September, Prescott is reported to have rejected two proposals worth more than $33 million a year as it wants to become the league’s highest-paid signatory, the title currently held by Seattle-based Russell Wilson ($35 million AAV). Until Dallas increases its supply or Duck reduces its demand, the parties will continue to negotiate. The most important deduction is the duration; the player prefers a four year contract, the team wants a five to six year contract.
It is believed that the candidate for the Cowboys’ off-season virtual program, which was modified due to the coronavirus pandemic, communicated Prescott to his superiors. Head Coach Mike McCarthy talked about it and added We don’t appeal in public.
What they can do in public is confirm that Prescott is the HEC launch for the next campaign and beyond, no matter how long it takes to sign and seal. Then hope it brings Dallas back to topography.
Finally, I don’t think we’re preparing a quarterback that has anything to do with Roof, Executive Vice President Stephen Jones told ESPN.com. He’s our starting quarterback. It is clear that he has a franchise and our main goal is to sign it for a long period of time and we think that we can achieve this.
