The Dallas Cowboys and the team's starting quarterback Dak Prescott have failed to agree on a contract extension and the quarterback's brother Tad had a few words to say of the organization his brother plays for.
Prescott, his agent Todd France and the Cowboys have been working on a long-term contract for close to 16 months -- but the two sides haven't been able to strike a deal so far. Prescott will now play out the 2020 season on the $31.4 million exclusive franchise tag and the two sides cannot talk a new deal until the 2020 season is over -- which means nothing is solved and the saga between the two sides continues.
"There is a reason I was never Dallas Cowboys fan growing up or before they drafted Dak Prescott. After today, who knows how much longer I’ll be cheering for them," Tad Prescott said in a Twitter post.

Meanwhile, Myles Garrett and Derrick Henry get paid
Garrett has signed a record-breaking deal with his team as the Cleveland Browns have given their defensive end $100 million in total guarantees -- the most ever given to a defensive player.
On Wednesday, former No. 1 pick Garrett and the Browns agreed on a five-year deal, worth $125 million, with the $25 million average salary also a record for a defensive player, sources told ESPN. Garrett entered the league with high expectations since he was selected at No.
1 in the 2017 NFL draft and he has promised that he will performing at the highest level going forward. "In 2017, the Cleveland Browns bet on me," Garrett said in a statement released through the team. "This city quickly became my home and these people quickly became my family.
I'm eternally grateful for this opportunity, the support of my friends and family, the organization, my teammates, the fans -- I could go on forever, but even that wouldn't be enough time to express my gratitude. I'll just say this: Keep betting on me, Cleveland, because I won't let you down.
Now, let's get to work." Meanwhile, the Tennessee Titans have rewarded their star running back Henry with a four-year, $50 million extension, that includes $25.5 in guaranteed, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Henry, who led the league in rushing yards last season, was one of the keys in Titans' run to the AFC championship game last year and the team decided to reward him with a long-term contract.
