Don’t look for Dak Prescott to take a team friendly deal like Tom Brady. There is one major difference between the two off the field: their significant others.
“Nobody’s wife makes as much money as his wife does either,” Prescott told USA Today, referring to supermodel Gisele Bündchen. “When Tom Brady isn’t the breadwinner in the home, then that’s a great problem to have.
“So in that case, he can do that. He can do his contract however you want to do it.”
Bündchen earned $10 million in 2018 and $17.5 million in 2017, according to USA Today.
The Cowboys quarterback will be looking for a contract extension soon, and he’s heard plenty of opinions on what he deserves after leading Dallas to two NFC East crowns in his first three seasons. Prescott, as a 2016 fourth-round pick, counted just $725,848 in 2018 against the salary cap. That was ranked 55th among quarterbacks.
“People are going to question and I want them to,” he said. “I don’t care. I am here where I am today because of the people always saying what I couldn’t or could do.
“It’s almost comical sometimes. If I hear it or allow myself to get involved in the talk, sometimes it’s comical. But I just keep going out there and just doing what I know I can do best.”
