The were one of two , along with the , that were below the Collective Bargaining Agreement's requirement of spending 89 percent of the salary cap in cash from 2017-20 at the period' Steve Carlton Jersey s halfway mark. That's in the proce s of changing. Defensive end , who was franchised for a second straight season, joined interior defensive lineman and edge rusher in the $20 million per year non-quarterback club last month by  with $65 million in guarantees.Cowboys chief operating officer and executive vice president Stephen Jones revealed last week that negotiations for wide receiver and quarterback , who are in a contract year, He also acknowledged that running back is also in the long-range plans. The Cowboys' plan is to try to replicate the triplets concept of the 1990s, starring quarterback Troy Aikman, running Emmitt Smith and wide receiver Michael Irvin, which produced three victories in a four-year span. Jones suggested at an annual golf outing for team sponsors last week the new triplets to make it easier for the Cowboys to keep the core of the team intact, hoping the players place a premium of winning championships."If we can talk them into not maxing out, doing well, but not maxed out, that allows us to have other good football players around them," Jones said, per the . "And we all know what happens, you look at the TV booths and look at what these players do off the field. If we can put Super Bowl rings on these guys, they'll be legends around this area for many, many, many years to come. What they may give up a little bit in John Kruk Jersey  their contract, they should be able to invest in being a Cowboy and making our teams better."  Agents let those types of pleas go in one ear and out the other. It isn't a player's job or responsibility to help a team manage the salary cap, which Jones concedes. An agent is focused on maximizing his client's contract with the most player-friendly structure po sible, unle s given specific instructions to do otherwise by who he represents. The only player to consistently give hometown discounts on contracts is quarterback , which started with his 2013 renegotiation. Signing the new triplets long-term is going to be an expensive proposition. The players seeking their market value could affect the composition of the Cowboys roster in the future.Dak PrescottThe Cowboys have repeatedly affirmed their belief publicly that Prescott is the answer at quarterback. Owner Jerry Jones said last week on The Rich Eisen Show the Cowboys are sold on Prescott, who is scheduled to make $2.025 million in 2019 thanks to earning the performance escalator available to third- through seventh-round picks in the final year of rookie contracts.  Prescott is going to be the beneficiary of the ever-escalating quarterback market. quarterback surpa sed quarterback last month as , signing a four-year, $140 million extension averaging $35 million per year. Wilson's contract has an NFL-record $107 million in guarantees. $70 million was fully guaranteed at signing. quarterback Ben Roetlishberger, who is 37, received a two-year, $68 million extension towards the end of last month. It's conceivable that Prescott could join these three quarterbacks and signal caller in the $30 million per year club, although he is largely regarded as a game manager who rarely wins games with his arm. Prescott has already stated he has no interest in following Brady's lead contractually.Only Brady, who is arguably the greatest football player of all-time, has more than Prescott's 32 regular-season wins since he entered the NFL in 2016. Prescott's 14 game-winning drives are the most in league history during a quarterback's first three NFL seasons. The Cowboys have won Odubel Herrera Jersey  the NFC East twice in three years with the 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year at quarterback.   Prescott became a more effective quarterback last season after Amari Cooper, the legitimate receiving threat the Cowboys offense was lacking, was acquired from the as the late October trading deadline was approaching. Prescott had the NFL's fourth-best completion percentage (71.6) over the second half of the season. He also ranked in the top ten in with 289 pa s attempts (seventh), 2,225 pa sing yards (eighth) and a 103.4 pa ser rating (seventh). He threw 12 touchdowns and only three interceptions. The Cowboys tied the Colts at 7-1 for the NFL's best record in the second half of the season. Prescott's statistical improvement should be encouraging to the Cowboys. Throwing for 387 yards and a career-high four touchdown pa ses in a come-from-behind 36-35 victory  Carlos Santana Jersey over the in the regular-season finale without key members of the offensive line and Elliott -- since the game didn't have any playoff implications for Dallas -- was also a positive step.  Five impre sive starts after a 2017 midseason trade from the Patriots were all the needed to give quarterback a five-year, $137.5 million contract in February 2018, which briefly made him the NFL's highest-paid player at $27.5 million per year. Garoppolo's contract has $74.1 million in guarantees, of which $48.7 million was fully guaranteed at signing. Prescott has a much greater body of work than Garoppolo.The Cowboys quarterback is destined for a franchise tag in 2020 if he plays out his rookie contract. The 2020 non-exclusive quarterback number should be in the $27 million range if the salary cap is in the neighborhood of $200 million next offseason. A second franchise tag in 2021 at a CBA-mandated 20 percent increase over the 2020 franchise number would be over $32 million.The exclusive franchise tag might be in order if Prescott's contract expires, since it would prohibit him from soliciting an offer sheet from other NFL teams. Most quarterbacks receive the exclusive designation. The calculation is different from the non-exclusive version. An exclusive designation for Prescott would be the average of the top five 2020 quarterback salaries (usually salary cap numbers) when the restricted free agent signing period ended, which would be about a week before the 2020 NFL Draft. This number currently projects to $32.221 million. A second franchise tag in 2021 at Dave Hollins Jersey  a 20 percent increase over Prescott's 2020 franchise number would be $38,662,520.  The Cowboys should be willing to give Prescott a contract at least approximating the average of the 10 highest-paid quarterbacks to avoid playing the franchise-tag game with him. The average of the five and 10 highest-paid quarterback contracts are summarized in the chart belowAveragesContract guaranteesFully guaranteedAverage salaryContract lengthTop 5 QBs$91,340,000 $72,940,000 $32,000,000 3.6 YearsTop 10 QBs$80,700,000 $58,970,000 $28,662,375 4 YearsWaiting to sign Prescott is going to be more costly, particularly if his performance in the second half of 2018 is a sign of things to come. Any extensions top two overall picks and sign with the Rams and , respectively, are likely going to be in exce s of $30 million per year. Since Goff and Wentz have the same representa
