The Dallas Cowboys have several key players about to hit free agency. None of them is more important than quarterback Dak Prescott.

Dallas has repeatedly said it wants to sign Prescott to a long-term deal. However, the team did not reach a contract extension when the two sides negotiated before the season, and it doesn't look like any new progress has been made.

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones spoke with reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis today. Not surprisingly, Dak was a major topic of the session.

Jones reportedly said that the team has not spoken with Prescott's agent Dak Prescott since before the 2019 season. There have been no talks yet this offseason.

That sounds sort of ominous, but here is some good news for Dallas fans. Jones again said the team wants Prescott as its franchise quarterback. He also said the team doesn't want to make progress on new deals for Dak or wide receiver Amari Cooper until the new league CBA is ratified.

Prescott reportedly turned down a contract offer of more than $30 million before last season. There have been reports that he is seeking $35-to-40 million, but what his actual price tag will be remains to be seen.
