    Dak should call Kapernick and ask about the longevity of the NFL. If you can get the deal....take all you can in upfront guarantees.
    He doesn't know that NFL O lines don't all look like Dallas....full of All Pro's
    2 years of bad play and he'll be a career backup
    My advice....take the money NOW

    If there was ever a case study on how much an average QB would get on the free market, Prescott is it. He's not worth anywhere near $30 million, so it'd be interesting how much of a market he'd have if other teams would get involved. What teams would get involved? Tennessee? Cincinnati?

    I don’t get the egos of these players. It comes down to where they just want to say “ I’m the highest paid player”.

    I’m all for players for getting paid but look no further than Brady and Larry the Legend.

    You would think a qb would take a little less to bolster their offensive line. Bad oline will affect his performance.....except for Kyler because, well, he’s Kyler. :)

    Jerry will pay because he remembers his QB situation between Aikman and Romo.

    Next year’s QB class is very solid. His market can only go down.

    Well, they're paying Wentz $32 million a year.

    Wait a sec... Isn't the Franchise Tag just a one year deal? I get that Cousins rolled the dice and it panned out for him, but, didn't he, and wouldn't Dak risk injury and potentially take himself out of anything guaranteed beyond the one-year Franchise Tag?

    You can franchise someone up to 3 times and it becomes increasingly more punitive. Cousins is the only person to go all three years because of the value of his position as a QB

    And the injury risk just isn't that relative since the money is so large anyway. The franchise tag is a guaranteed probably 28 - 29 million next year. Why would you remotely settle for a longer commitment at the floor of your salary?

    And he 100% has all the leverage here. They have nothing to replace him and they won't have a high draft pick to grab a rookie so he is going to get franchised and one way or another he is making more than 30 million a year
