The news comes less than a day before the deadline for teams to franchise tag players.
Dallas used its franchise tag on Prescott last year and paid him $31.4 million. The 27-year-old quarterback suffered a serious leg injury in Week 5 and missed most of the season.
Still, Dallas wanted to keep Prescott. If the sides were unable to reach a long-term agreement, the quarterback would have made $37.7 million in 2021.
A fourth-round pick in 2016, Prescott has passed for 17,634 yards, 106 touchdowns and 40 interceptions over five seasons in the NFL.
