Yahoo Sports’ Liz Loza reported on talks between the sides centering on four years and $35 million per season for Prescott who will be entering his fifth season with Dallas. Yahoo Sports’ Charles Robinson followed up saying the issue between the two sides is whether the deal should be four or five years, with the Cowboys pushing for the latter.
When you start seeing Dak Prescott connected to a 4-year deal for $35 per, @LizLoza_FF was the first on that. I’ve also been told by a source that the #Cowboys are still pushing five years. Question is who wants this deal done worse (and the answer to that question is Dallas). https://t.co/4193s55DJ7

A $35 million per season deal would put Prescott at the head of the class with the Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson. Also in the $30 million per season ballpark are: Ben Roethlisberger ($34 million), Aaron Rodgers ($33.5 million), Jared Goff ($33.5 million), Kirk Cousins ($33 million), Carson Wentz ($32 million) and Matt Ryan ($30 million).
