Cowboys QB Dak Prescott addresses his contract

What does the future hold for Prescott in Dallas?

As the final year of his contract approaches, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has yet to see progress on a new deal. Reports suggest that both Prescott and the Cowboys are prepared to head into the 2024 season with him playing out the remainder of his current contract.

The four year, $160 million deal expires after the current season, and there has been speculation that Prescott could seek to become the NFL's highest paid quarterback on his next deal, be it with Dallas or elsewhere. 

"I'm not trying to be the highest paid, necessarily," he said with a smile. "I'll wait till negotiations begin, and obviously I want to put this team in the best situation."

"I'm focused on here, right now, and where I am," he said. "That's how I've always been. Any time you've asked me, it's been about right now and getting better tomorrow. I've been in this situation before, and it's okay, I'm fine. Any situation that I point back to myself in playing this year out." 

When asked if he "fears" potentially leaving the Cowboys, Prescott answered in the negative. 

"I don't fear being here or not," he said. "I don't fear either situation, to be candid. I love this game and I love to play and better myself as a player and my teammates around me. Right now, it's with the Dallas Cowboys, it's where I want to be and it's where I am, that's the focus. After the season, we'll see where we're at if the future holds that. If not, we'll go from there." 

Meanwhile, Prescott was asked about the lack of major moves made by the team despite team owner and general manager Jerry Jones' vow to go "all in" during the offseason. 

“I don’t want to say I’m puzzled," he said. "I’m focused on the guys that we have, we have a lot of great guys and a lot of good that is returning in that locker room....I have faith in those guys, we've always done well in the draft and bringing guys in. I don’t control that side and making those moves. I'm not going to put too much thought and angst into it."
