That contradicts the article I quoted, saying Dak wants 4 because he wants a new final 5 year contract when the salary cap skyrockets in 4 years.
Which is the smart choice.
He'll still be in his prime at age 32 vs on the downhill of his prime when most QBs only play until 38.
It's the approach Russell Wilson took, he has played on 4 year contracts. Yeah, there's always the risk of injuries, that's why you take out an insurance policy or get injury guarantees, but in the long run it's likely better.
Also with a shorter contract it's a lot easier to keep the team from playing funny business backloading it into money you'll never see.
Tony Romo only got paid out 60% of the money in his final contract.
