But if reports are to be believed, he is going to be offered a multi-year extension in the build-up to the 2021 NFL season.

Popular American analyst Chris Broussard appeared on the latest installment of FOX Sports show – Undisputed. He was asked to comment on the contract situation surrounding Dak Prescott in Texas.

He opined, “I think it’d be horrible for the Cowboys. If they don’t sign Dak Prescott and I get it. I’m not mistaking him for Pat Mahomes or Aaron Rodgers or anybody like that. However, Dak Prescott, I believe, has proven that he’s well, with the money.

“They messed this up years ago. They should have signed that 2 years ago, they probably could have got him for an average of less than $30 million a year. I’m almost certain they would have, and they’d be fine.

“They could have signed him last year, for what $35 million a year, over 4 years. They insisted on 5, they blew it..now it is going to be an average of about $40 million a year,” Broussard said on the show.

With some significant improvements to their defense, the Cowboys could push for the NFC Championship in 2021.
