Stephen Jones: Cowboys have made Dak Prescott a ‘very aggressive’ contract offer
The Dallas Cowboys have bigger problems at the moment than the contract status of Dak Prescott, but they still feel good about where they are at in negotiations with their franchise quarterback.
Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones touched on Prescott’s contract in an appearance on 105.3 The Fan Monday, and he said the team has never wavered from its stance of wanting to pay the 26-year-old. He also said he feels the Cowboys have an “aggressive offer” on the table.
Cowboys VP Stephen Jones on @1053thefan: “We’ve never blinked on (paying Dak Prescott). We’ve had a very aggressive offer out there every step of the way. … I think Dak has given us every opportunity to have success this year. I’m as bullish about Dak as I’ve ever been.”

Prescott didn’t play all that well on Sunday in a crucial loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but he is battling a shoulder injury and was unable to throw in practice throughout the week. Aside from that, he picked a great time to have his best season as a pro.
Prescott will enter Week 17 just 401 yards shy of throwing for 5,000 on the season. He has 26 touchdown passes compared to 11 interceptions, and he is expected to become the highest-paid quarterback in football if and when the Cowboys do sign him to an extension. We have heard some truly outrageous figures thrown around that probably will not end up being accurate, but Prescott is going to make a lot of money.
