Dallas Cowboys general manager Jerry Jones has made absolutely no secret about the fact that he would love to see quarterback Dak Prescott remain a member of the team for the remainder of his playing career. However, he's entering the final year of his contract.

While speaking at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Jones built on his "all-in" approach that he said could also take place without a contract extension in place for Prescott. 

"We don't need to, but we can if everybody wants to solve it," Jones said. "You can get in and get on the same page and see if you can come to an agreement. If you can't, what we have in place works. And so obviously, if you do it one way, you'll be working through some of the other areas on the team in a different way, but you can't really plan on that until you see when you're there."

"Absolutely," he said when directly asked if he can be all-in without an extension. "You just have to adjust where you're going and how you're going all-in."

For Prescott, who enjoyed a stellar regular season and finished 2nd overall in MVP voting, he's still considered one of the top players in the game by Jones. 

"He had one of the best years as you all know," Jones said. "But the thing that I would point out is we all think that had a lot to do with the fact that Mike McCarthy is right there involved in Dak's play, more directly involved in the offense, that we think that there's a lot more to come."

"So we'll see, we're going to be working on his contract as we get into the future. What we do there or don't do, I couldn't say at this time but the main thing is he's going to be our quarterback."
