Dak Prescott seeking $40 million from Cowboys

Reports on Monday morning suggested Prescott wanted that unprecedented kind of cash in a new deal from the Dallas Cowboys, but several reports have now surfaced refuting those claims.

In addition to Dak though, the Cowboys have a much more crucial problem on their hands at the moment, and that's getting star running back, Ezekiel Elliott, back in time for the season.

It was reported last week that quarterback Dak Prescott was offered a deal that would pay him $30 million annually.

Prescott is seeking a deal closer to $40 million per season, which would reset the market for quarterbacks.

A PFT source quickly shot down the report, saying it is false based on either new money or total value at signing.

He did confirm the separation though, and said , "I wish her [Miley] nothing but health and happiness going forward". Hemsworth said the split was a "private matter" and he would not be making any further comment in the media.

According to SpoTrac, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson is the highest paid at his position, making $35 million per season.

With both quarterbacks entering their fourth National Football League season, it's only a matter of time before both Goff and Prescott see hefty paydays from their respected teams, especially when seeing what quarterbacks make these days.

Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers and Carson Wentz rank below Wilson in average annual salary.

Dallas fans can say whatever they want about believing that Prescott is the better quarterback, but Goff's numbers from the previous two seasons alone make him seem like the better option under center, meaning he would clearly deserve to make more money.

A fourth-round pick in 2016, Prescott is headed into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract. But we know this: paying Prescott $40 million annually, like appeasing the wholly unreliable Elliott at all, ain't it.
