Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys have been embroiled in some pretty testy contract negotiations over the last few months. Prescott is looking to become the highest-paid quarterback in the entire NFL, while the Cowboys want to sign him to a long term deal. Throughout the past weeks, it has become clear that Prescott wants a bit of a shorter term, although the Cowboys simply won't bite.
Well, now, the two have reached somewhat of an agreement although it's not a full-blown contract. Instead, Prescott will sign his $31.4 million franchise tender which means he must play for the Cowboys this season, and attend training camp, according to Adam Schefter. From here, the Cowboys and Prescott must sign a deal before July 15th, otherwise, both sides won't have any security past 2020.
This isn't exactly an ideal situation for either side although it certainly benefits the Cowboys as it means they will have their QB back this season. However, if you're Prescott, you can't help but feel at least a bit insulted that it took this much effort just to get to where we are.
The next month of negotiations will surely be interesting so stay tuned for all of the latest updates.
