Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has been in the midst of a contract dispute over the past several months and reporting suggests that situation isn’t improving. As reported by NFL Network’s Jen Slater, Prescott is not expected to agree to a new contract prior to Wednesday’s signing deadline.
The deadline for a long term deal with Dak Prescott is Wednesday & a source informed tells me there isn’t a lot of optimism that one will be reached. It’s Monday so things can change but that’s where the situation sits currently. Remember he did sign tag so he’s here this season

Despite the apparent stall in negotiations, Prescott will still feature under-center for the Cowboys next season, signing his franchise tender last month.
Dallas is looking to entice Prescott by revamping their team since the disappointing 2019 season, bringing in a new coaching staff under Mike McCarthy and adding a new receiving threat by drafting CeeDee Lamb.
Throwing for a career-high 30 touchdowns last season, Prescott also ended-up with a win-loss record of 8-8, the worst in his four-year career, and the determining factor in the firing of Jason Garrett.
