The Cowboys locked up their franchise Monday night when they signed Dak Prescott to a long-term extension, according to NFL insiders.
The deal is for four years and 160 million dollars, with the possibility of the deal reaching 164 million.
After a season lost due to injury, owner Jerry Jones was quick to ramp up talks of an extension today and finally end the question marks about his return in 2021.
Dallas now has locked up Prescott, Ezekiel Elliot, Jaylon Smith, and Demarcus Lawrence among others in an effort to get back to the glory days of the 70s and 90s
Without Prescott, Dallas sputtered to a 6-10 season with first-year head coach Mike McCarthy and backup quarterback Andy Dalton leading the charge.
Dallas is certainly talented enough, especially offensively, to compete for the NFC East title.
Dallas now must focus on upgrading a defense that finished 23rd a season ago.
Congrats to Dak on the insane contract.
