Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports added that the Cowboys would prefer a five-year deal, but ultimately may compromise as they’re the side that wants a long-term contract done more.
When you start seeing Dak Prescott connected to a 4-year deal for $35 per, @LizLoza_FF was the first on that. I’ve also been told by a source that the #Cowboys are still pushing five years. Question is who wants this deal done worse (and the answer to that question is Dallas). https://t.co/4193s55DJ7

The Cowboys have used the franchise tag on Prescott, so he’ll be with them in 2020 either way. They do not want the uncertainty beyond that, though. They’ve made aggressive offers in the past, but the $35 million sum that is rumored would be the highest yet — and perhaps sufficient to get something done with the quarterback.
