Dak on deal talks: 'Want to be a Cowboy forever'
1:10 AM ET
FRISCO, Texas — Dak Prescott has made his intentions known, not that they are surprising.
“I mean, I want to be a Cowboy forever,” Prescott said Wednesday night at Dr Pepper Ballpark, where the quarterback and his teammates were raising money for the Salvation Army through the Reliant Home Run Derby. “I think the people that are doing the deal feel the same way, so to me, it’s no rush. I know it will get done.”
Prescott is set to make $2.02 million in the final year of his four-year rookie contract that he signed after the Dallas Cowboys drafted him in the fourth round in 2016.
Last week, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said talks with the agents for Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper were “off and running,” and Jones did not rule out a deal for running back Ezekiel Elliott, either.
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones has said keeping Prescott is a priority for the future and that he knows it will come at a big price.
