Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has offered his take on a potential long-term contract extension with the team.

Speaking at a charity event on Monday, Prescott sounded highly optimistic about getting something done with the Cowboys. The quarterback said he was “definitely confident” in reaching an agreement, noting how it would help the team’s salary cap situation. He also confidently predicted that an extension would happen.

Prescott is entering the final season of the 4-year, $160 million contract he signed in 2021. That deal carries a cap hit of roughly $59.4 million for 2024, which is something the Cowboys would probably like to bring down with a new deal. Owner Jerry Jones has suggested that adjusting Prescott’s contract is not strictly necessary, but it would certainly help.

Between the price of quarterbacks and the recent salary cap rise, Prescott’s deal will probably reset the market. He has ample reason to want one, and the Cowboys have reason to want to give it to him. Usually, when that’s the case, an agreement gets done.
