Cowboys QB Prescott “doesn’t play for money”

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, entering the final year of his deal, has said “I don’t play for money.’

“I don’t play for money. Never have never cared for it, to be honest with you, yeah,” Prescott said on Wednesday. “Would give it up just to play this game. So, I allow that to the business people to say what it’s worth, what they’re supposed to give a quarterback of my play, a person of my play, a leader of my play. For me, it’s about, as I said, control what I can control and handle that part and the rest will take care of itself.”

Cowboys need to settle Dak’s deal quickly

The Cowboys QB is looking for an extension ahead of the final-year of his 4-year $160-million deal signed in 2021. Cowboys Head Coach Mike McCarthy could likely do without the soundbites that will be twisted as easily as this one.

The Cowboys were arguably, alongside the Dolphins, the biggest playoff flops last season, and McCarthy, and possibly Prescott, need stellar 2024 seasons to stay in Dallas. It would likely benefit the Cowboys to extend Dak asap, but that seems unlikely the way the winds are currently blowing in Dallas.

“I think it depends on personal relationships and position and how much that pay can affect others, understanding where I am, what my pay means to a team and to an organization,” Prescott said. “I don’t really take things personal. Maybe in my first deal, maybe things were a little different than they are now. One, it’s my age and who I am, where I am in my life, and I guess the fact that that first deal got done. The understanding that I have a lot of decision in this, too. I have a lot of say-so, too.”

“Right now, it’s about being my best for this team right now in this moment. OTAs is helping these guys out, and just focused on that, and I know my business will take care of itself,” he said. “Been in it before, experienced and just controlling what I can right now.”
