Dak Prescott’s Brother Tosses Shade At Cowboys After Tag Deadline Passes


The franchise tag deadline came and went Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, and Dak Prescott and the Cowboys did not agree to terms for an extension.

Now, the quarterback will play the 2020 season on a franchise tag, making $31.4 million.

And while Prescott hasn’t spoken publicly about not reaching a deal with the team, his brother certainly isn’t pleased with the Cowboys.

“There is a reason I was never a @DallasCowboys fan growing up or before they drafted @Dak after today who knows how much longer I’ll be cheering for them,” Tad Prescott on Monday said via Twitter.

Per NFL Network’s Jane Slater, the Cowboys’ latch-ditch effort to sign Prescott to a long-term deal offered him between $33-35 million annually with a $50 million signing bonus and $110 million guaranteed.

According to Slater, Prescott wanted to sign the deal but there wasn’t enough time to get the deal done.

Now, the two parties will not be able to negotiate on a new contract until January.
