Andy Dalton filling Dak Prescott shoes for the Dallas Cowboys could pay off big

-

Andy Dalton has a chance to make himself a great deal of money over the next 11 games as the Dallas Cowboys’ brand-new starting quarterback, and he does not have to wait up until free agency in March.

The 1 year, $3 million agreement Dalton signed in May also includes $4 million in rewards, all of them in theory obtainable now that Dak Prescott is out for the season– though Dalton, 32, would need to lead the Cowboys to a Super Bowl win to make the full amount.

Here’s how Dalton’s incentives break down, all contingent on playing a portion of the Cowboys’ offensive snaps, according to individuals with knowledge of the contract:

50% regular-season playtime and the Cowboys make the playoffs: $1 million.
35% regular-season playtime and 50% playtime in a wild-card playoff win: $500,000.
35% regular-season playtime and 50% playtime in a divisional playoff win: $500,000.
35% regular-season playtime and 50% playtime in a conference championship win: $750,000.
35% regular-season playtime and 50% playtime in a Super Bowl win: $1.25 million.

Medical professionals have informed Prescott he’s facing a four- to six-month healing after going through surgical treatment last Sunday for a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle suffered versus the New York Giants. Dalton, the long time Cincinnati Bengals quarterback, took control of and completed 9 of 11 passes for 111 yards in a 37-34 win.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, has made it clear that Prescott remains the team’s franchise QB, though the sides will deal with another prominent negotiation after failing to agree to a long-term contract in July. A 2nd franchise tag for Prescott in 2021 would cost about $37.7 million for one season.

If Dalton plays well, he could be the among the most coveted veteran quarterbacks to actually hit the free-agent market in March. Others with ending agreements consist of: New England’s Cam Newton, Indianapolis’ Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett, New Orleans’ Jameis Winston, Chicago’s Mitchell Trubisky, Miami’s Ryan Fitzpatrick, the Chargers’ Tyrod Taylor and the Jets’ Joe Flacco.
