The long wait is over. The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to a new contract with quarterback Dak Prescott.
On the eve of the scheduled franchise tag deadline, Dallas announced it had come to terms with Prescott on a long-rumored new deal. Thus ends the endless speculation about the quarterback’s status and future with the Cowboys.
We can definitively say Dak will play for Dallas for a while and be well-paid doing so. The reported details of his contract are four years, $160 million.

The two sides hoped to have all of this done last offseason, but instead the veteran QB had to play the 2020 season on the franchise tag.
Even with Prescott suffering a season-ending leg injury in Week 5 back in October, the Cowboys’ brass always seemed to want to keep him as their franchise quarterback. Now, they’ve officially done that.
