Dak was a top-15, maybe top-10 QB who wants to be paid like a top-2 QB.  

Pass.

And Mahomes and Watson, at least, signed those extensions after Prescott's last round of negotiations.

So where does he belong?  Pre-injury, I'd say it would be a slight stretch to put him at $35M/year.  That's north of where Rodgers and Ben were and even with Wilson.  Looking back to before this season, Prescott was probably more in the Wentz/Ryan/Cousins territory.  Cousins is probably a great comp since they both do well on good teams but nothing in the playoffs.

Now it's a bit trickier since Wilson and Roethlisberger both crapped the bed, but I still would be shocked if he got more than Rodgers and Goff.  And then you have to factor in the ankle, which DAL should and Prescott won't.  If Jerry didn't have a long history of caving, I'd say this deal never happens, but with Jerry, who knows.

But if Prescott is actually looking for $40M/year which the rumors suggested, that would put him above Watson and that's where things go off the rails.
