Report: Cowboys and QB Prescott Having Good Chats About Long Term Deal

It’s unclear if Dak Prescott took part in the first day of the Cowboys virtual offseason, but the two sides have spoken in the last two weeks and a source described that session as “very positive,’’ David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The club placed the exclusive franchise tag on Prescott in March when the two sides were unable to reach an agreement on a long-term deal. Sources said that proposal exceeded the deal received by Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz in every respect. That means the quarterback would make more than $128 million in the first four seasons of the deal and his guarantee was north of $107.9 million.

The total worth of that proposal isn’t known, but sources said the five-year deal would make Prescott the NFL’s highest-paid player.

Prescott’s representatives prefer a four-year deal.

The Cowboys presented Prescott with a proposal that averaged $30 million and a guarantee of $90 million entering training camp, sources said, putting him among the top five players at the position at that time. In an effort to strike a deal before the regular season began, the club upped that offer to an average of $33 million with a guarantee of close to $105 million in September, sources said.

Prescott has not signed his franchise tag and is under no obligation to take part in the team’s offseason program that got underway Monday.
