The Dallas Cowboys have offered quarterback Dak Prescott a record-breaking 5-year, $175 million contract. His crazy ass reportedly turned it down.
The rumors are that he only wants a 4-year deal while the Cowboys are pushing for a fifth year. If the Cowboys insist on a 5-year deal, Dak wants north of $45 million for the final year of the deal.
It would've made him the highest paid QB in history.

Now let's take a look at some of Dak's numbers from last season when the Cowboys finished 8-8. He finished the season with 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Pretty good numbers. They might even be worth $175 million.
A closer look at those numbers reveals a much different reality. Dak's a great quarterback against shitty teams and a terrible quarterback when he plays good teams.
Last season, Dak Prescott and the Cowboys were 1-6 against playoff teams and 7-2 against non-playoff teams.

Dak's going to fuck around with these negotiations and lose his job to Andy Dalton. That's going to be a great day for Cowboys haters everywhere.
