Stephen Jones: Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper extensions are Cowboys’ top priorities
The Dallas Cowboys’ top offseason priorities remain to keep what they already have.
Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones reaffirmed Tuesday that the team’s top priority is to sort out Dak Prescott’s contract, followed by retaining Amari Cooper.
Cowboys VP Stephen Jones says getting Dak a new deal is No. 1 on their list of priorities. Getting Amari a new deal is No. 2. No plans to meet with their agents at Senior Bowl. Jones: “If I happen to run into them, I’m more than happy to visit with them. I know them both well.”

Prescott would be a free agent, but the Cowboys are likely to franchise tag him at worst. The desire to keep Cooper is also interesting. He’s been the Cowboys’ No. 1 receiver since his acquisition, but there appeared be some frustration with him toward the end of the season.
Both players promise to be quite expensive, and the Cowboys would be well-served to stop talking about this, as they have for months, and try to get something done as soon as possible.
