Cowboys fans are hoping things will go differently this offseason.
Prescott and the Cowboys front office are once again attempting to work out a longterm contract extension. If the two sides cannot agree on a deal, Prescott will once again be hit with the franchise tag. Only this time, it’s not a guarantee that Prescott will stick around in Dallas, as many believe he could be traded or released without a longterm deal.
It doesn’t sound like that’s a likely outcome, though.
The latest reports with Prescott and the Cowboys are encouraging. Dallas fans are optimistic about a contract extension getting done following the latest reports.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport noted on Friday that things are “positive” between Prescott and the Cowboys right now.

Longtime Cowboys insider Jane Slater, meanwhile, added that Prescott has been working out at the teams’ facility.
“Encouraging Dak Prescott news. I’m told he’s been at the facility nearly everyday rehabbing. So must not be that contentious folks,” she reports.

The Cowboys and Prescott might not agree to a deal anytime soon, but it certainly sounds like they’re closer than they were last offseason.
