Dak Prescott is due for an extension soon, but there are many opinions about his worth. Here’s why the Dallas Cowboys should pay him $30 million a year.

The Dallas Cowboys have begun contract negotiations with their franchise QB, Dak Prescott. As the next QB in line for a contract extension, it only makes sense that he gets money the market dictates for franchise QBs. Each time we see a QB get their extension, it seems like they get a record-breaking deal larger than the last.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson recently got himself an extension of four years, $140 million, which comes out to an average of $35 million a year. As the next franchise QB in line for an extension, there’s a good chance Dak Prescott could be making money in Wilson’s range.

The belief that Prescott will get a contract worth $30 million-plus per year hasn’t been a popular opinion among Dallas Cowboys fans. The Cowboys and their fans would love for Prescott to take a discount for his team, thinking it’d be easier to keep good players around him if he takes less money.

While that may be true, Prescott is worth every penny of his likely $30 million a year contract extension. Now let me tell you why.
