Tad Prescott, outspoken (if meddlesome) brother of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, affirmed what was unconfirmed regarding long-term negotiations between team and player.

“Heard @DanGrazianoESPN say on @GetUpESPN that @dak could have taken a Goff or Wentz like contract last year., Those 2 both were offered 4yr extensions, @dak was being offered 5,” Prescott tweeted Tuesday.

That Dallas failed to lock down Dak prior to last July’s deadline wasn’t for a lack of effort. The two-time Pro Bowler was floated various proposals from the front office, all of which were declined, including a final offer that included $110 million in guarantees and averaged roughly $34.5 million per year.

The guaranteed money would have tied Prescott with Goff ($110 million) while the annual salary would have surpassed Goff ($33.5 million) and Carson Wentz ($32 million), trailing only Patrick Mahomes ($45 million), Deshaun Watson ($39 million) and Russell Wilson ($35 million).

But the issue, as Tad cemented, revolved around the length of the would-be deal rather than the overall worth. Prescott, 26 at the time, wanted a four-year arrangement in order to re-test the market when he’s 30 whereas the Cowboys held firm for a five-year commitment, allowing them to better allocate the massive salary-cap hits.
