The Dallas Cowboys and their quarterback, Dak Prescott, have yet to agree on a contract extension. It's unclear if anything is going to be agreed upon during the regular season.
Prescott could be franchise tagged by Dallas this offseason, though both the Cowboys and the young quarterback appear to be interested in working out a longterm deal.
Earlier reports suggested that Prescott was asking for $40 million a season. It's not surprising that Dallas is balking at that number.
Prescott has reportedly adjusted his demands, according to NFL Network's Jane Slater.
“Since then I’ve been told that he’s come down. The number is closer to 33, 35-ish. But for whatever reason they’re still not able to get this deal done," Slater said on The 'Boys And Girl Podcast.
If that's what Prescott is willing to take, it is surprising that the Cowboys haven't been able to get a deal done. Of course, things like years and guaranteed money are incredibly important.
The Cowboys might just be OK waiting until the offseason to see how everything goes before making a final decision.
Dallas (4-3) and New York (2-6) are set to kick off at 8:15 p.m. E.T. on Monday. The game will be on ESPN.
