Tad Prescott: “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.”
Dak Prescott’s older brother Tad took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to rip the Cowboys as news was breaking that Dallas had failed to reach a long-term agreement with Dak, and was electing to place the franchise tag on the four-year starter.
Prescott wrote on Twitter “There is a reason I was never a Dallas Cowboys fan growing up or before they drafted Dak after today. Who knows how much longer I’ll be cheering for them.”
The Cowboys had reportedly put a long-term deal on the table for Prescott that was between $33 million-$35 per year, with $100 million guaranteed, but Prescott instead elected to play on the $31.4 million franchise tag this season in search for an even more lucrative long-term deal.
If Dallas elects to franchise Dak again in 2021 they would be dishing out $37.7 million next season.
Prescott is 26 years old and 40-24 for his career, in a tenure that directly followed Tony Romo’s.
FS1’s Nick Wright told Colin Cowherd earlier on Wednesday that he believes Prescott will be franchise tagged by the Cowboys in 2020 and 2021, and then will become the ‘most sought after free agent in NFL history' in 2022, and take his talents to a team like the Colts, Steelers, or Broncos.
