Stephen Jones says Cowboys are ‘working hard’ to sign Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys seem unlikely to come to an agreement on a contract extension this late into the regular season, but that does not mean discussions have been tabled altogether.

Stephen Jones was asked a question about Colin Kaepernick’s upcoming workout during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan Friday, and the Cowboys executive vice president said the team will not be sending a representative largely because they are satisfied with their quarterback situation. Jones also said Dallas is focused on trying to sign Prescott to a long-term extension.

A recent report claimed Prescott is likely to be franchise tagged this offseason, but that does not necessarily mean he will have to play under a one-year deal in 2020. If the two sides have made progress toward a new contract by then, the franchise tag might only serve to give them more time to come to an agreement.

Prescott supposedly turned down a massive offer from the Cowboys prior to the season, though details about guaranteed money were unclear. There has been talk that he has not pushed for a new deal because of other revenue streams he has managed to generate, so perhaps he is comfortable putting the pressure on the team by letting things drag out.

After the way things unfolded with Ezekiel Elliott, it would be a surprise if Prescott and the Cowboys don’t come to an agreement during the offseason.
