The Dallas Cowboys have several major financial decision to make in the next two years.

Quarterback Dak Prescott, star running back Ezekiel Elliott and wide receiver Amari Cooper will all need new contracts in the near future.

The Cowboys appear to be tackling Prescott's contract first.

During his media session on Wednesday afternoon, the former Mississippi State star addressed how the contract talks have gone so far.

Here's what he had to say via SportsDay:

"I can't really say," Prescott said when asked how close the two proposals were. "It's one from each side. This is my first time doing this. Ask me in a few years and I'll be able to tell you, 'OK, we've sent this one and they've sent this one. We're about to get it done.' But as of right now, I'm learning the process too, and just letting my team handle their business."

Prescott and the Cowboys appear to be trading contract proposals at this point.

According to ESPN's Cowboys insider Todd Archer, the Cowboys lowballed Prescott initially and the quarterback fired back with a lucrative deal.

The two sides might not be close to a deal just yet, but both sides seem eager to get it done.
