Hard decisions loom in the future for the Cowboys.

So, what exactly does the future hold for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott? 

He's entering the final year of his contract, and team owner/general manager Jerry Jones has made no secret about the fact that he wants him to remain with the franchise for the rest of his career. 

However, Jones almost sounded as though he was hinting that a long term extension for Prescott wasn't a guarantee. But if the quarterback does decide to run it back, it would mean less money for the rest of the Dallas supporting cast. 

We want Dak Prescott,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday, via Jon Machota of “That’s that. . . . I give Mike [McCarthy] a lot of credit for [Prescott’s improvement last season]. That improvement demonstrated to me there’s more as far as ultimately winning what we’re trying to do here. The question nails it for me. We want Dak. We think that there’s room for growth. … If you are a team that has a lot of cap room, and then you have a quarterback for a little while that is well underneath in his rookie contract — San Francisco last year, us with Dak early after we had [Tony] Romo — boy, we had a lot of credit card use there on Romo. Dak came along, so we didn’t have to have it so we were able to absorb that money and still keep Tyron [Smith] around him.

So Dak has enjoyed, in his career that we’re proud of, some of the best supporting casts that you could put around him."
