Being a Cowboys quarterback is the best job financially speaking
Assuming that there is an NFL season, the Cowboys are on the cusp of becoming “America’s Team” again.
For years, the Cowboys have fallen short of living up to the previously stated narrative. The expectation has always been that the Cowboys have the tools to be one of the best teams in the league.
We enter another saga of that for 2020 as the Cowboys own a loaded offensive arsenal. With players like Zeke Elliott, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb, and a highly touted offensive line, one may think that the Cowboys can hang 30 points at any time.
In order to be elite, it’s going to all start with quarterback Dak Prescott.
The Cowboys will need Prescott to produce a year like 2019, where he finished second in the league in passing yards. However, time has shown that even if Prescott is not taken care of, having the logo “Cowboys” printed on your resume means you will be taken care of no matter what.
Prescott was franchise tagged by the Cowboys, but he is still going to be making $31.4 million this season.
Take a look at former Cowboys quarterback and current CBS announcer Tony Romo. After signing his deal with DBS, Romo’s total salary adds up to $18 million, while FOX analyst, Troy Aikman, makes around $7.5 million.
Altogether, that’s nearly $57 million tied to just three former Cowboys quarterbacks.
Staying in Dallas is great for your career even if you are retired from the league. If you are Dak Prescott, you have to know that everything is going to turn out okay.
