Dak’s Contract Prediction
I think Prescott will sign is a five-year, $170 million contract. That averages out to $34 million, which would potentially be the second-highest average in the league in 2020. It has some term and Jerry Jones wouldn’t have to worry about both Elliott and Prescott at the same time.
Sure, Lawrence is going to need a new contract too. But by the end of his current deal, Tank will be 31-years old. The stud defensive end’s play is more likely to start dropping off than to continue dominating. If anything, Lawrence would only get shorter-term deals from there on.
Or you can look at Elliott as a running back and say that he will burn out by the time his contract ends and he’s 30-years old. Running backs also get paid less, so his annual value would likely still be less than Lawrence’s. Both are great possibilities, so Jerry Jones must pick his poison.
Either way, Prescott made a great statement to Mr. Jones in his contract year, and now Jerry is going to give Dak a nice piece of his pie. At the age of only 26, Prescott has an abundance of time to continue improving. At least you can say this is a good problem to have.
If you were Jerry Jones, how much would you give Dak Prescott to play for the Dallas Cowboys? Let me know in the comments section below.
