Report: Cowboys ‘stunned’ by Dak Prescott’s contract stance

Dak Prescott

The Dallas Cowboys are in a bit of a standoff with Dak Prescott over a long-term contract, and it seems to be a situation they did not expect to find themselves in.

Prescott and the Cowboys are still said to be one year apart on a deal, according to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk. Prescott is adamant about a four-year deal, believing that the Cowboys could simply make it a five- or six-year deal by using the franchise tag. The Cowboys want five years, which Prescott fears could be turned into a six- or seven-year pact.

According to Florio, the Cowboys are “stunned” by Prescott’s stance, and expected to have a deal done a long time ago. It appears Prescott’s decision to turn down a big offer in 2019 and bet on himself caught them off-guard, and it means Prescott holds all the leverage in negotiations right now.

To be clear, the belief remains that the two sides will get a deal done before the July 15 deadline to do so. It simply may take right up until that deadline for it to happen.
