He made his debut against the New York Giants in Week 1. However, his opening NFL game ended in defeat as Dallas lost by a 20-19 margin. But that did not stop Dak who went on to lead the Cowboys to a 13-3 record and the NFC East title in his rookie year.

Dak Prescott Net Worth
The Cowboys number 4 reportedly has a net worth of $2 million as per Celebrity Net Worth. However, we suspect that they haven't taken into account his massive $31.4 million franchise tag which was activated prior to the 2020 NFL season.
In addition to that, it is being reported that Dak earns five-times his on-field salary from his endorsement deals with Adidas, Pepsi and other brands. He earns further revenue from his licensing deals. So his net worth remains shrouded in a bit of a grey cloud.
The Cowboys placed the exclusive franchise tag on Prescott for the second consecutive season on March 9, 2021, and he signed a four-year contract extension with the Cowboys the next day for $160 million with $126 million guaranteed. The deal included a $66 million signing bonus, as per ESPN.
