Dallas Cowboys Are “Not Worried” About Dak Prescott’s Contract Situation

The number one story of the Cowboys' has been and his contract. Prescott recently signed his tender, but that doesn't mean he isn't looking for a long term big-money deal before the July 15th deadline.

Well, today is July 12th and the deadline is quickly approaching. But, at least as of now, it's pretty quiet on the contract talk front. And the latest reports indicate the Cowboys aren't making some last minute push to get it done.

's Jeremy Fowler was on SportsCenter this week, and said that he's hearing the Cowboys organization is not worried about Prescott's contract situation.

“I'm told the Cowboys are not worried right now. They're going to play this all the way up to the deadline and they're hopeful that Dak Prescott will take their latest, best offer. Whether that's a new offer at the deadline or their old offer because they didn't hash anything out a few months ago.”

Regardless of Wednesday's deadline, Prescott will play the under the tag worth $31.4 million. But if a deal isn't made by Wednesday we will have to go through this same song and dance next season, and the organization will risk alienating their franchise .

That franchise tag is obviously a nice sum of cash, but Prescott has been clear in his wishes for a four year deal worth more than the tag in average annual value. The has been clear in their demands as well, looking to ink Prescott for that extra fifth year rather than four.

And so, here we are. July 12th and the starting quarterback is still in a bit of contract limbo.

Maybe this will go the route in Washington and Dak Prescott will play two seasons under the tag. We all remember how that saga ended for Washington, though, with Cousins walking in after that second season.

At this point – the Cowboys can't afford to lose Dak Prescott.
