Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is entering the final season of the four year, $160 million deal that he was given by general manager Jerry Jones in 2021. However, there has been little meaningful progress on getting a new contract done, and it looks like Prescott playing the 2024 campaign without a finalized pact for the future is a possibility. 

But in the words of Prescott himself, he stated it's something that his agent is handling, and that as far as compensation is concerned, it "will take care of itself". 

"I mean there's been conversations back and forth but for the most part for me as y'all know I've let my agent do that, especially as we get right here to training camp," he said. 

"Day one at training camp, my mind flips to just obviously helping my team and just doing everything I can within the organization and on the football field to make sure that I'm my best and everyone around me is their best," he continued. "The money and all that will take care of itself as it always has been."

Prescott's contract carries a $55 million cap hit, and he's been reportedly seeking upwards of $60 million a year in his next contract. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow and Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence recently inked new deals that pay them both $55 million annually, something that Prescott's camp will be using as leverage.
