Dak Prescott's Contract May Have Closed the Cowboys' Championship Window

RJ Bell and Jonas Knox look at Super Bowl winning quarterbacks over the last decade and compare their salaries as a percentage of their team's cap to show why Dak Prescott's new deal can harm the Cowboys' chances to win a Super Bowl. RJ shows how only first-ballot Hall of Famers (Tom Brady and Peyton Manning) and quarterbacks on their rookie deals tend to be the only ones to win Super Bowls in the modern era of the cap (since 2012). Meanwhile, quarterbacks on lucrative free agent deals or extensions tend to struggle to even get to the big game, let alone win it. RJ breaks down how to read these numbers and why they don't bode well for the immediate future of Dak's Dallas career.
