The Atlanta Falcons’ Matt Ryan became the NFL’s highest-paid player after signing a five-year, $150 million contract extension earlier in May.

Quarterbacks are waiting in line to usurp Ryan’s title, and Dak Prescott’s time is coming. nfl wholesale jerseys

“You know, at that position, it kind of is what it is,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday, per the Dallas Morning News’ Kate Hairopoulos. Jones continued:

“I know Dak is going to have a great year this year. I hope it’s up there. It’s going to be as he deserves. He was a fourth-round pick. No one deserves to get paid fairly more than he does. We all see what some of the other guys who aren’t [Green Bay great] Aaron Rodgers, who aren’t Matt Ryan [are earning]. He’s going to do well.

“We certainly know that’s going to happen. We’ve got that planned in our budgeting for the salary cap. And I just want Dak to go out there and be the MVP this year of the NFL, that’s what I want.  And we’ll deal with that.”nfl jerseys from china

Jones clearly hedged his praise in an indirect attempt to temper expectations before the two sides reach the negotiating table next offseason.

Prescott regressed after winning the 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Anything less than an MVP-caliber season, and the Cowboys can argue Prescott’s value doesn’t quite reach Ryan or Rodgers’ level.official nfl jerseys cheap
