Dak Wants Cowboys To Pay Him ‘Right Behind Mahomes’ - And Pay Him ‘Respect’; Report

The “respect” Prescott is requesting from the Cowboys would make him the second-highest-paid player at the position, in the NFL and in the history of football.

FRISCO - The Dallas Cowboys believe their two-years-worth of contract offers to Dak Prescott have been all about “respect.”

Dak’s side now wants something more: “Respect” in the form of a new proposal that would put his salary “right behind” that of two-time Super Bowl QB Patrick Mahomes.

Prescott is “looking to be paid right behind Patrick Mahomes, a guy who’s gone to the Super Bowl two years in a row,” NFL Network’s Jane Slater said on the Dan Patrick Show.

Added Slater: “(The Cowboys) feel like it’s been a respectable offer,” also noting that Dak’s side, repped by agent Todd France feels Dallas’ ''(cap) problems with money aren’t our problems; it’s about respect.'”

We can confirm the Joneses’ view on their series of offers. Two years ago, their offered APY was $30 million; COO Stephen Jones told us that represented “top-five QB money.”

Odell Beckham Jr.: Cowboys DeMarcus Lawrence Boldly Asks, 'Circus' or 'Super Bowl'?

OBJ is "dramatic.'' And injured. And expensive. And somebody around here needs to give voice as to whether it's all worth it. Cowboys leader Tank Lawrence, to his credit, just did so.

And last year, as we reported at the time, Dallas upped its APY offer to $35 million. The Cowboys felt it was competitive.

Instead, Prescott played under the franchise tag and made $31.4 million. He could do the same in 2021 and make $37.7 million.
