Dak Prescott's Agent Has 'Broached' $34M Per Year Deal

Jun 14, 2019 9:23 AM

The agent for Dak Prescott, Todd France, has reportedly asked the Dallas Cowboys for a massive contract extension.

France has "broached" a deal in the range of $34 million annually, according to a report.

Prescott is scheduled to make $2.025 million in 2019 under his fourth-round rookie deal. A deal with a $34 million annual average would mean a new five-year, $138 million contract for the quarterback.

Sean Payton Believes Michael Thomas Will Be 'Next One' To Get New Deal

Jun 12, 2019 9:36 AM

Michael Thomas is heading into the final year of his rookie contract with the New Orleans Saints.

Thomas isn't stressing about his status and has said he's "pretty certain" things will be handled well by Mickey Loomis and the organization.

The Saints awarded Cameron Jordan with an extension earlier this week and Sean Payton believes Thomas will be next.

"He's been very consistent and he'll be the next one I am sure," Payton said. "Mickey will be working. I know that they probably have already begun discussions. I leave that to those guys to handle. He competes, he is durable, and he is someone that enjoys playing."

Melvin Gordon On New Deal: If It Happens, It Happens

Jun 12, 2019 9:28 AM

Melvin Gordon is in the final year of his rookie contract and said his representation has had preliminary talks with the Los Angeles Chargers.

"I'd be lying if I said I didn't want a deal done," Gordon said. "But that's not going to stop me from coming out here and doing what I need to do. We're going to see. I would like to go out there and have it done. We're talking right now, and that's kind of where I'm going to leave it."

While he is hopeful that a contract extension will be completed, Gordon did not dismiss the possibility of not playing in 2019 if no deal is consummated by the start of the regular season.

"I don't know, man," Gordon said. "I'm just trying not to talk about it. If it's going to happen, it'll happen. When it does, I'm pretty sure you guys will know."

The running back is scheduled to make $5.6 million in 2019.

Jaguars Tell Jalen Ramsey No Extension Will Be Signed In 2019

Jun 11, 2019 9:43 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars told the agent of Jalen Ramsey they don't plan on extending his contract in 2019.

Ramsey said he wasn't angry or upset that he wouldn't be getting an extension this season, the final year of his rookie contract. The Jaguars picked up his fifth-year option, which means he would make $13.703 million in 2020 but the contract would be guaranteed for injury only, and the team could use the franchise tag in 2021.

"As long as I'm a part of this organization, as long as I'm a part of Duval County, I'm going to give the city and the players all I've got, and I think y'all know that," Ramsey said. "I've fought through injuries. I've fought through everything, haven't missed a game. I think I'm in a similar situation as Yan [Yannick Ngakoue], as where I feel like I have outplayed my rookie contract and I feel I've earned a new contract.

"But at the end of the day, it's not the end of the world. I'm tremendously blessed. I'm so blessed. I'm not down on it or anything like that at all, but that is the circumstance. That is what I've been told."
