It’s an expensive hug.
Dak Prescott will be the Dallas Cowboys quarterback in 2021 and beyond, with news of Prescott’s four-year, $ 160 million contract being breached on Monday evening. The deal includes $ 126 million in guaranteed money, compared.
This, of course, is cause for celebration, especially among siblings. Dak’s older brother Tad Prescott shared a heartwarming photo of the two family members hugging him after the contract was called.
“When your little brother gets the call. Let’s go to @dak to win a Super Bowl at the @dallascowboys,” the tweet read, with a picture of the brothers hugging him.
The signing of Prescott ends a multi-year odyssey of the organization and its franchise quarterback trying to strike a long-term deal. Reports surfaced in 2020 that Prescott was looking for $ 40 million a year, a figure that was initially flouted, but it appears that all of Prescott’s wishes were met with the signing of the contract.
Prescott goes from fourth-round pick to one of AAV’s highest-paid QBs on the deal ($ 40 million per season), behind Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes ($ 45 million per season).
The Cowboys passer just suffered a horrific ankle injury that ended his 2020 season just five games away, but he should be all systems for this coming season.
