Dak Prescott knows he won’t be highest-paid QB, doesn’t feel like he can ask for that

Interesting comments from the Cowboys QB.

Dak Prescott has put together high-quality performances through the season’s first two games and with each touchdown that he throws (he’s got seven so far) it feels like the numbers on his eventual contract extension rise.

That makes sense, right? In a world of supply and demand, if Prescott is continuing to justify his worth isn’t he in a position where he can ask for more money? It’s one line of thought that certainly holds some logic.

Interestingly, this might not be the case. If you didn’t catch it due to celebrating the win that the Cowboys were in the process of putting together, FOX sideline reporter offered some very interesting insight on Dak Prescott’s contract situation. According to her, Prescott understands that he won’t be the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL, and he doesn’t feel like he can ask for “those kinds of riches” since he hasn’t won a Super Bowl.

“I asked him about that and he said when all is said and done he said he does not necessarily expect to be the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL, an answer that may cause his agent to choke on his cellphone. Prescott said ‘I’ve never played for money, it’s not what makes me happy,’ he went on to say he doesn’t think he can ask for those kinds of riches if he hasn’t won a Super Bowl. He said his goal is to be the best player ever and of course he wants to attain that status as a Dallas Cowboy”

It’s one thing for Dak Prescott to think this to himself, but it’s an entirely different thing for him to vocalize it. It makes sense that his agent would not want word like that to get out because, well, supply and demand and economics and what not.

Honestly, though, it’s quite refreshing to hear Dak want to win and work more than anything.

Dak Prescott is very good. That’s a very good thing.
