    Dak's value is not a dollar more than $30M a year as what his production generated currently.

    Dak's value will increase with time through productivity, and maturation for the coming future, and his reward and recognition may be him playing for another team.

      Dak Prescott is an idiot. He's going to realize really really quick that he's no were near as good as advertised. Just watch. Turning down $30 million a year. Fool! Note to Jerry Jones. Let this fool walk!

        Dak will get 33.5 to 34.5. But there needs to be incentive money around this. Not just guaranteed. But I think he is going to have to take the team deep into the season to get it. CC is write. Finding a QB can take a decade or more. Cowboys went through that before. They need to pay Dak. But Dak needs to be real.

                When you're making 20 - 30 million a year and bitching about it like it's not enough when the average American makes pretty much 20 - 30 million less than that. If I was an owner and had dak Prescott and he didn't take that offer I would let him play out his rookie contract and move on. Dak can't carry a team with his arm and that's the job. Dak needs top notch players all around him to win and that's a fact. I have never liked dak as a player and for top dollar franchise tag him and trade him , plenty of guys who can win with that line run game wrs and defense.

                          They love overpaying the Staffords, Cousins and Garapollos, mannings etc.. they don't even make the playoffs... Pay Zak his money he can run and throw...don't get injured..

                            You going have to pay Zak and Zeke if you want a chance to win a superbowl. I am not sure about might could go in a different direction

                              If and when Zeke comes back, Dallas has no excuse but to win the SB. If not, they are just another Tony Romo era team. There will be no There, there.

                              No way. Amari Cooper on the Cowboys team forces Dak to throw down the field. He's gonna have to prove he can get the ball to quality receivers, and not just making a living off the predictable short passes. Russell Wilson went to 2 SBs , Manning has 2 rings, Rodgers has 1 and of course Mr Brady has a lot of SBs ( all without the best RBs and WRs ).

                                  Dak should just take the pay cut give it to zeke. Let's be honest ,zeke gonna need that lawyer up money sometime in the future

                                              Wentz and Dak are middle of the pack QB’s neither one of them is worth 30 million.

                                                    Dak sucks, Zeke is worth 30 or 40.

                                                      People stupid. The patriots have always had one of the best run games each time they won. Brady the greatest but even he needed a run threat. New England just smart enough to do it with a committee. Less wear on the backs and you don't have to pay on running back a large amount. You look at the team rushing average as a whole and not by one person. The cowboys rushed for more than what Zeke only did. So yeah pay Dak.

                                                          Dak has played three seasons for basically no money compared to other starting QBs rookie contracts. He has stayed healthy and though has struggled with ball placement and releasing on time. He has improved & will only get better with time. He is a proven winner. Dallas needs to find the happy medium and sign him for 33-35 million per year.

                                                            Dak has also played in two playoffs games in his first three seasons and could have made it in the second season. Wentz is okay but he has injuries issues in college and the three seasons he's been in the league. Dak has out played every quarterback that were drafted before him and had he had a quality OC, he would take the Cowboys far into the playoffs.

Put Teddy Bridgewater or Jacoby Brissett into Dallas with Zeke, that O line, and that D....they'd be at least as good as Dak, if not better.

                                                                    • Brandon Henry

                                                                      Funny how his list of QBs that can “carry” a team without a running game stop at Brady and Rogers. Yet neither Brady or Rogers the highest paid QB in the NFL. So where’s this energy for guys like Wilson, Ryan, Wentz, Garoppolo, Stafford, Cousins? None of them have shown the ability carry a team with minimal support.

                                                                      The argument against paying Dak is complete bullshit. In order for any QB to be successful they need support that’s the nature of the position. I’ve never heard anyone say the key to winning is getting an elite RB. AP was dominate for years yet he couldn’t elevate the play of guys like Christian Ponder.

                                                                      The bottom line in today’s in NFL is the buck always stop with the QB. No matter how good the cast around the QB is, if he sucks the team isn’t going anywhere.

                                                                      The Cowboys don’t win despite Dak he’s a big reason why they win. Half their Wins(14) were the result of 4QCs/GWDs lead by Dak. He excels with the game on the line. His rushing ability helps open lanes for Zeke because defender have to account for him pulling the ball out and running. He’s the only QB in history with 20+ Passing and 6+ rushing TDs in 3 consecutive seasons. He’s top 5 when it comes to percentage of games played with a 100+ passer rating.. Dak has certainly carried his own!

                                                                      I find it funny as hell that in era where the value of the RB has been devalued by everyone, people with a straight face would try to use a RB to devalue the importance of the QB. Until I witness Zeke routinely convert 3rd and long with the game on the line or rush for game winning TDs in overtime with minimal effort from Dak and the passing game than he will never be more valuable to success of team than Dak so stop using him to argue against paying Dak.

                                                                      get paid what the market dictates and he’s as much right to go after every dime

My nephew and Zeke were roomates at Ohio State, and teammates, but he can walk too. Nobody else wants these bums. Jerry needs to keep his hard earned money. He WORKS...they PLAY 🙄

                                                                                      • Ronald Shiffman

I have no doubt that Dak can win a super bowl for the Cowboys. The point is the money. Today, it seems like $20-25 million a year salary is good money. Not the best money, but good money. Also, it leaves some extra dollars in the kitty for the other 50 team mates like Zeke and Amari, which will help team moral. The problem with fighting for every extra dollar is that if something goes wrong, the Cowboys might be screwed. Dak might not care. He got his. But a top dollar salary hit to cap space is really bad for all the other players on the team, the Cowboy franchise, and the fans.
