Cowboys still want to sign Dak Prescott to new contract by Sunday
The Dallas Cowboys got one big contract extension done this week, but they don’t want to be done yet.
According to executive vice president Stephen Jones, the Cowboys are engaged in talks with the agent of quarterback Dak Prescott. Dallas remains hopeful that a new deal can be struck by Week 1.
Stephen Jones says he has an ongoing dialogue with Dak Prescott's agent. They are still holding out hope they can get a deal done on Sunday.

The 26-year-old quarterback is entering the final year of his rookie deal. He’s coming off a season in which he threw for 3,885 yards, with 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
It’s a short and ambitious timeframe, but negotiations have been ongoing. Prescott reportedly turned down a significant sum of money earlier in the offseason.
The news comes in the wake of the Cowboys handing out a huge contract to a teammate. Perhaps Prescott has that in mind as he negotiates with Dallas.
