  • Dak Prescott scoffs at Tom Brady discount: I’m not married to Gisele



    Don’t look for Dak Prescott to take a team friendly deal like Tom Brady. There is one major difference between the two off the field: their significant others.

    “Nobody’s wife makes as much money as his wife does either,” Prescott told USA Today, referring to supermodel Gisele Bündchen. “When Tom Brady isn’t the breadwinner in the home, then that’s a great problem to have.

    “So in that case, he can do that. He can do his contract however you want to do it.”

    Bündchen earned $10 million in 2018 and $17.5 million in 2017, according to USA Today.

    The Cowboys quarterback will be looking for a contract extension soon, and he’s heard plenty of opinions on what he deserves after leading Dallas to two NFC East crowns in his first three seasons. Prescott, as a 2016 fourth-round pick, counted just $725,848 in 2018 against the salary cap. That was ranked 55th among quarterbacks.

    “People are going to question and I want them to,” he said. “I don’t care. I am here where I am today because of the people always saying what I couldn’t or could do.

    “It’s almost comical sometimes. If I hear it or allow myself to get involved in the talk, sometimes it’s comical. But I just keep going out there and just doing what I know I can do best.”

      Hmm... I'm not down with a mega deal, I think it's a bad idea. But what choice do we have? Guess he gets his big payday

        Even Andy Dalton gets around 16 mill per year, so the leader of men is going to get paid, without a doubt.

          I don't blame him a bit for wanting to get every last dime he can.

              I agree that he's up for a raise commensurate with his on field performance, it's due. He was a mid round draft pick and nobody saw him even competing for a starting job when he was drafted so he *has* been a bargain. But...

              While I can't stand him and regardless of who he's married to or how much she's worth, Prescott shouldn't even mention himself in the same breath as Brady in any context. Regardless of how you spin it, he's a midlevel quarterback who wouldn't have had the W/L record he has had so far without a solid defense and this past year, the Amari Cooper trade. He also had one of the best OLs in the league covering his butt his first two out of three years and a future HOF TE as a safety valve.

              I would be okay with a contract in the mid teens with performance based incentives. I just don't want this team handcuffed to the guy when there are other players who have earned a big payday. JMO.

                Absolutely. You get it when you can because there is never any guarantees for a long future in this league.

                  That's not going to happen. My guess would be 20 mill per on the low end.

                    Yeah it's just not realistic. I think some people think Dak is Blake Bortles or something. If that's the number you're ok with than you might as well just start planning on drafting a new QB now and forget about extending Dak.

                      I know it's not realistic, I just don't think he's worth $20M a year. However, I also know there's next to no chance of this team spending anything but a lower level pick on a QB. I think the highest this team has drafted a QB after Troy was Quinthy in 2001.

                        Yep, I would even say 25 might be the low end. Flacco and Alex Smith make more than 20, and they signed their deals a few years ago.

                        Add in the natural inflation that happens with contracts plus Jerry celebrating paying his own players big deals and 25 might be too low a baseline.
                        2014=2009, 2015=2010?

                          That would actually be pleasantly low.

                          He is going to go after Matt Ryan dollars at $30M. And thanks to Jerry Jones all but saying out loud he was going to get paid outrageous money, that might just be a starting point.

                            As a passer, the guy is nowhere near Matt Ryan. Or any other elite QB in the league. I admire his tenacity and "team" attitude. But I'm really concerned Jerry is about to financially handcuff this team to a QB who is above average at best. A 5-7 year deal drags on while we watch good/really good/franchise type guys come out of the draft. Maybe I'm not giving Dak his due, but IMO this is dangerous.

                              And yet Dak's career QB rating is better than Matt Ryan's and he wins you more games. I guess it all depends what your priorities are in a QB. And lets not pretend that Daks cheap contract has allowed us to dip into free agency and build a bunch of talent around him. We've drafted all of our talent just like we will continue to do.
