Cowboys Sign Dak Prescott to 4-Year, $164M Contract Extension

Dak Prescott is staying in Big D. 

With the NFL franchise tag deadline looming, the Dallas Cowboys have finally signed Prescott to a new contract. 

The Cowboys' franchise passer inked a four-year, $164 million extension with a record $126 million guaranteed, according to ESPN. The deal pays Prescott a whopping $75 million in the first year of the pact.

NFL Media adds that the deal includes a full no-trade clause and no franchise tag provision. 

The former fourth-round pick was the No. 1 available player in our free-agent rankings. 

Prescott is coming off a season-ending leg injury that derailed the strong start to his 2020 campaign. 

He was slated to make more than $34 million on the franchise tag.
