Dak
(Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports)

We all know how much Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones loves to give out big contracts, and he proved that this week with his mega extension of Dak Prescott. It appears that Jones would do it again in a heartbeat. When asked if he thought he overpaid to retain the services of his Quarterback, his response? In a nutshell, hell no.

Full quote from NFL.com

“When I bought the Cowboys, apart from a lot of other things that were being said, it was very commonly said of how idiot I was for paying what I paid for the Cowboys,” Jones recalled during Wednesday’s press conference. “And that’s not an exaggeration, that’s firmly there. Well, I really got screwed, I ended up with the Dallas Cowboys.

He would go on to say:

“The truth is most anything that I’ve ever been involved in that ended up being special, I overpaid for, every time, to the end. Anytime I’ve tried to get a bargain, I got just that, it was a bargain in a lot of ways and not up to standard. And so, the other thing, that our process of getting here from Dak’s rookie deal, I knew that Dak wanted to be here and really no place else. I knew that and I think Dak knew how good he fit here, although I can understand his apprehension. This was not a test of some sort of ‘can Dak handle it?’ or something like that, that wasn’t the case at all.”

It appears on the surface that this deal was destined to get done, no matter how far apart the two sides might have been beforehand. If you ask Dak Prescott, he would tell you he never had a doubt he would stay in Dallas. Time will tell if he lives up to his contract, or if it will in fact be an overpay on the part of Jerry Jones.
