The Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott are- finally- closing in on a deal. Unfortunately, it’s not quite the deal that many of their fans would have hoped for. July 15th is the deadline for talks to take place on a new deal, and with that looming, it does not look like a new, long-term contract will be agreed to.
As such, Prescott will be forced into signing the franchise tag, meaning he would ‘only’ be making $31.4 million in the 2020 season. It may not be the deal that either of the two sides truly want, but it could always be worse for both parties, couldn’t it? It’s reported that Prescott wants a four-year deal worth in excess of $35 million a year, while the Cowboys want him for five years and can’t seem to agree to terms on the amount of guaranteed cash as of yet. Despite the lack of a deal and Prescott not being involved with virtual workouts yet, the two sides have, according to sources, no animosity as of yet to one another.
