FRISCO – The Dallas Cowboys are about to feel the “sticker shock” of what Dak Prescott will ask for in negotiations and may have to give in on a three-year contract totaling $124.6 million, predicts long-time NFL agent Joel Corry.
“I don’t think a deal will be done because I think Dallas will have sticker shock,” Corry tells 1053thefan, But if it can get done? Corry forecasts that it will look something like this:
Signing Bonus: $60 Million
Guaranteed Money: $124.5 Million
Fully Guaranteed At Signing: $100 Million
Overall Dollars: $124.5 Million
Contract Length: 3 Years
Average Per Year: $41.5 Million
Key points here:
*We continue to be told that Dak’s ankle rehab is going fine. Not a factor.
*Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, from 2018, got $94.5 million fully guaranteed. This Prescott’s deal would exceed that.
*Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson’s $65 million represents the biggest signing bonus in league history. This Prescott deal would exceed that.
*We’ve discussed the idea of adding voidable years for the purpose of lessening the cap impact. This proposal does that, putting Dak’s 2021 cap number at just $17 million – which would help greatly in Dallas’ “cap clog” … its ability to get busy doing other business.
*We’ve also noted the timetable here. That business is stuck (unless the Cowboys make other cap-space moves, some of which are already planned) with the March 9 deadline to tag Prescott looming.
