The Dallas Cowboys and their starting quarterback, Dak Prescott, are hoping to get a new contract finalized that will lock up the former fourth round NFL Draft pick for the foreseeable future.
At this point, though, no agreement has been reached. Prescott remains confident that it will, however.
The Cowboys quarterback added that he wants to be in Dallas for the rest of his career.
“I want to be a Cowboy forever,” Prescott told reporters at the Reliant Home Run Derby Wednesday night. “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, 25, says he’s not worrying at all about the contract situation. He’s simply focused on the 2019 season.
“My whole focus is within the locker room,” Prescott added. “I’ve got people that take care of that. I’ve got a great team, team of agents. That’s their job. Jerry has said when he’s had to that they are negotiating but as far as I’m concerned, it’s just about getting better, getting better as quarterback, getting better as a leader and just making sure our team is getting better.”

Prescott isn’t the only player the Cowboys are hoping to lock up, either.
Both Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper are seeking longterm contract extensions as well.
