The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly close to a contract extension for quarterback Dak Prescott.
According to Cowboys insider Charles Robinson, the team “has advanced to the point of pricing out an insurance policy on a presumably forthcoming Dak Prescott extension.”
The news should come as no surprise after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said a deal was “imminent” earlier this week.
Here’s the news from Robinson.
A #Cowboys source says the team has advanced to the point of pricing out an insurance policy on a presumably forthcoming Dak Prescott extension. Aside from Jerry Jones’ “imminent” feeling, it suggests each side has some parameters laid down. Clearly a healthy amount of optimism.

The Los Angeles Rams inked Jared Goff to a $134 million extension with $110 million guaranteed before the 2019 season kicked off. The deal makes him the highest-paid player in the league.
Prescott is reportedly in the market for a deal that would make him the highest-paid player in the league. According to multiple reports, the Cowboys offered Prescott a deal in the neighborhood of $30 million annually.
However, after the deals handed out to Goff, Carson Wentz and Russell Wilson in recent months, the Cowboys will likely have to shell out top dollar.
The team signed Ezekiel Elliott to a record contract extension for a running back. Jerry Jones and company also signed DeMarcus Lawrnce, linebacker Jaylon Smith and offensive lineman La’el Collins before the 2019 season.
Prescott shined in the team’s season-opener against the New York Giants. Now he’s in line for a massive pay raise.
