New England Patriots Trade Could Lead To $160 Million Franchise QB According To Analyst

The New England Patriots desperately need a franchise quarterback and have major salary cap space at their disposal, so one NFL analyst has the perfect solution.

While it may sound crazy now, FS1’s Nick Wright theorizes a potential trade that would bring Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott to New England,

Wright suggested that the Patriots could sign Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott in 2025 after the final year of his four-year, $160 million contract.

The Cowboys and Prescott have no plans to renew his deal with the team in 2025 per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.


Since the Patriots own the No. 3 pick in the draft next month, Wright can see the team going with a trade and a “Plan B” approach to sign Prescott in 2025.

Wright broke down how much money that Patriots have for next year and how a trade could lead to inking Prescott next.

“So the Patriots are on the books for $200 million in cap space next year,” Wright said during the “First Things First” show on Thursday.

“So what if the Patriots … traded the pick a three particularly if Drake Maye‘s there because people want it even more because people seem to love him.”


“Say he’s traded to Minnesota for [pick] 11 and 23 and something [else],” Wright continued. “Draft a tackle there whether it’s [Joe] Alt [Tallese] Fuaga [and] draft one of the mini stud wide receivers in this class at 23 and have the ‘Plan B’ — ‘we’re going to sign Dak Prescott.’”


Clearly Wright believes the New England Patriots should play the long game instead of rushing into drafting a QB this season, while waiting for Prescott to fall into their laps after 2024.


He’s an unrestricted free agent,” Wright added. “What the Cowboys’ problem is and a lot of teams’ problem is, ‘wow, you’re going to have to pay him $60 million a year and it’s gotta be back-loaded because we don’t have the room.’”

“So it’s going to be like $30 million and then $65 [million] and $70 [million],” Wright continued. “If we were the Patriots, we wouldn’t have to do this. If we wanted, we could sign a rare front-loaded contract with a first-year cap hit of $75 million…and then the amount goes up.” It’s going down.”
