Here's How Much Dak Prescott Is Really Worth

NFL star Dak Prescott became the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys in 2016, after Tony Romo fractured his vertebrae during the preseason. Romo, who intended to return as the starter after recovering, admitted at a press conference, "He's earned the right to be our quarterback. As hard as that is for me to say, he's earned that right."

Since then, Prescott has impressed fans and football pros alike, including Dallas Cowboys head coach, Mike McCarthy, who believes the athlete has Super Bowl potential. "Defenses get you to the championship," McCarthy explained (via USA TODAY). "Quarterbacks win championships." He added, "I definitely feel Dak is that quarterback."

Considering Prescott is a valuable player in the NFL, it's fair some fans are curious to know how he has fared financially throughout his career. As it turns out, the Louisiana native will reportedly take home a big paycheck for the 2020 NFL season.  

Dak Prescott reportedly signed a lucrative contract

News broke in March 2020 that the Dallas Cowboys had put an "exclusive franchise tag" on Dak Prescott, a tool used by teams to keep "designated players off the unrestricted or restricted free-agency markets," typically for one year, as Sporting News noted. "The positive for the players who are tagged is that the one-year deals are guaranteed, and the salaries represent the average of the top five highest-paid players at their positions (if not more)," the outlet explained.

Prescott, who was set to become a free agent in 2020 before this supposed deal was reached, will reportedly make $31.6 million annually. "The Cowboys and Prescott's agent, Todd France, have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal," Calvin Watkins wrote for The Dallas Morning News. "If the sides can't reach a deal by then, Prescott will play the 2020 season on the tag."

The football star's reported net worth is supposedly $2 million as of this writing, per Celebrity Net Worth, but we imagine this figure will balloon in late 2020 if the Dallas Cowboys deal is true. TBD.
