Report: Cowboys, Dak Prescott not close on new contract
Dak Prescott is entering the final year of his rookie deal with the Dallas Cowboys, but it sounds like it could be a while before he gets a new contract.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo said Friday that the two sides are “really far apart” in negotiations, and the process could drag past the start of training camp.
“I thought this was going to take deeper into the summer. I thought we were looking at maybe the start of training camp,” Garafolo said. “It could be into training camp. Everything that I have been told by sources briefed on the talks is that both sides are really far apart at this point. It sounds like they’re just going to put a pin in it for a while and then revisit it.”
Prescott is in line for a very healthy raise, and as Garafolo notes, it makes sense for him to sign before the season to get that raise as quickly as possible. It sounds, however, like the two sides aren’t close on the numbers, and unless someone budges, this one may take a while.
