Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys knows that at some point, he will be due a big payday. The Dallas Cowboys know that as well although it won't come as a surprise if the team tries to reason with the 25-year-old quarterback into taking less than what he is worth. This early, the two-time Pro Bowler is making it known that he will not fall prey to such a tactic.

Speaking to USA Today recently, Prescott explained why he has no plans of giving the Cowboys a discount once contract negotiations come around. The 135th pick of the 2016 NFL Draft has been monitoring a lot of things such as NFL revenues - meaning salary caps are likewise going up. Hence, he sees no reason why the Cowboys cannot afford giving him a fair contract at market price.

"For somebody to say you can only take so much because of the salary cap or you can only do this or that, I don't know how fair that is to say," Prescott said. "Because with gambling, with everything going into this league, everything is going to continue to keep going up."

Prescott does have a valid point, meaning the Cowboys will have to find a way to work the numbers. The former Mississippi State Bulldog is entering the final year of his rookie contract where he is scheduled to earn $2.025 million -- less than other quarterbacks like Brian Hoyer or Nate Sudfeld who are earning a bit more. Having settled for less the past three years, Prescott and his camp feel that it is high time for him to be paid right. According to the Fort Worth Star -Telegram, that could range somewhere in the vicinity of $34 million.

Assuming the Cowboys do give Prescott his rightful pay, they will also have to do the same to other players. There is Amari Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas players that Prescott feels deserve new and lucrative deals. With the salary cap rising annually, the native of Louisiana believes that Dallas should pay him and other stars on the team rightful salaries.

Looking ahead, it all boils down to mapping for the future as far as the Dallas Cowboys are concerned. Giving deserving players on the team their rightful contract is something they have done in the past so Prescott, Elliott and Cooper expect to be treated the same.
