Did Stafford get, or demand, $10,000,000 more than the highest paid QB at the time of his new contract?
Do you think Dak’s market is $10,000,000 more than the current highest paid QB (Wilson @ $35,000,000 apy)
Of course the expectation is that contracts will continue to climb. That these franchise QBs will get a small bump over the current highest paid QB. Something around $36,000,000 to $37,000,000 apy seems like the reasonable trend for Dak.
$45,000,000 apy seems out of whack.
While it would be nice to see Dallas cave and put their team in cap hell, I also hope they don’t cave because it will set a horrible trend for all future QB contracts.
$45,000,000 apy at Dallas’ current cap situation is 21% of the cap. At the current league mandated salary cap figure $45,000,000 apy is 23% of the cap.
Stafford in his worst year was 15.8% of our cap.
What Prescott is asking for here is unprecedented, and bad for the league IMO.
