It seems like the contract negotiations between the Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott have gone on for an eternity, and they will continue into next year after the team franchise tagged their QB today.
Unable to reach a long-term extension by Wednesday’s deadline with what’s being reported to an offer between $33 and $35 million per year with $110 million guaranteed, one of Dak’s family members has had it with the Cowboys.
Not long after the deadline passed, Tad Prescott, older brother to Dak tweeted that he doesn’t know how much longer he’d be rooting on the Cowboys after the recent contract offers to Dak.

The contract stalemate comes after owner Jerry Jones said a deal was “imminent” last September and Prescott going on record saying he wanted to retire a Cowboy and wasn’t worried about the deal.
“I want to be a Cowboy forever,” Prescott said then. “I think the people that are doing the deal feel the same way so to me it’s no rush. I know it will get done.”
That deal of course never was completed.
Prescott will become a free agent next season.
