Dak Prescott: Despite Belief, Deal Wasn’t Close In 2019

Time for your regularly scheduled contract discussion.

The Cowboys franchise is entering unrestricted this Spring, and while the Jones family has been steadfast in claiming he will be a Cowboy for life, the contract is yet to be completed.

Most expected for Prescott and the Cowboys to close the deal prior to the . Instead, Prescott played out the final year of his contract and had a career year, betting on himself and cementing his value as deserving of QB1 money.

It wasn't surprising to hear that Dak thought he'd get himself a contract prior to the 2019 season, but it was surprising to hear that the deal was never really close in his eyes.

has said that the deal is imminent, and all that's left is to “land the plane” to close the deal. Based on how Prescott spoke here, though, it certainly sounds that he is viewing the current offers very differently than Jones.

But if you're looking to keep your franchise player happy, why not opt for the longterm option? Why keep this in limbo for an entire season, giving the media a chance to potentially insert some outside drama onto the situation? Why allow for these “top ” lists to include the guy you claim to value as your starting quarterback of the future?
