The new league year is set to begin March 18th and the Dallas Cowboys don’t have a contract for quarterback Dak Prescott. Let’s take a look at the options.
The two sides recently started contract discussions for the first time since September according to Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com
If we take a look at the Cowboys’ roster there are a good amount of key free agents on this team and three of them will be paid top five money at their respective potions. This includes Prescott, wide receiver Amari Cooper and cornerback Byron Jones.
This is not to mention Dallas needs to sign other tier two free agents, with the most popular being defensive end Robert Quinn.
Dallas needs to figure this situation out with Prescott relatively soon because that will dictate what they do with the rest of their future free agents come March 12th.
The Cowboys don’t want to sign Prescott until all details of the CBA agreement are out, this could be why contract talks have stalled.
The Boys have three very simple options. Sign Prescott long term, franchise tag him, or let him walk.
