Dak Prescott signs $31.4 million franchise tender with Cowboys
Dak Prescott is not going anywhere, at least for this season.
Signing the one-year franchise tag tender does not preclude the sides from reaching a deal on a long-term contract.
Prescott and the Cowboys have until July 15 to reach a long-term deal, which is something the sides have been discussing since last year but have been unable to reach agreement on.
According to one report published on Monday, the Cowboys have been “stunned” by Prescott’s contract stance.
Prescott, 26, was a fourth-round pick by the Cowboys in 2016 and was set to be a free agent this year, but the Cowboys tagged him so they wouldn’t lose him. Prescott threw for a career-high 4,902 yards and 30 touchdowns last season for the 8-8 Cowboys.
