You can add Dak Prescott’s older brother Tad to the list of people unhappy that the Dallas Cowboys didn’t sign the quarterback to a long-term deal.
The deadline to sign a tagged player to a multi-year contract expired a short time ago. The Cowboys and Prescott reportedly did not negotiate for some time leading up to today.
As a result, Prescott will have to play the 2020 season on his franchise tender, which is worth $31.4 million. The money is fine, but it’s not the outcome either side wanted, and it certainly isn’t what Tad Prescott had in mind.
Shortly after time officially expired on a possible agreement, Tad Prescott took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with what unfolded, blasting the Dallas organization in the process.

The craziest part of all of this? We could be doing the same dance next year as well. Dallas has the ability to franchise tag Prescott again next offseason, which would lock him in at a $37 million price tag for 2021, assuming a lengthy contract isn’t negotiated.
Whatever the exact proposed terms were, the two sides clearly weren’t that close. With comments like the ones from Tad Prescott now out there, it is hard to imagine them bridging that gap any time soon.
