Are the Dallas Cowboys primed for a busy July? Here are five thoughts to close out June.

It’s time to wave goodbye to June. The Dallas Cowboys approach the month of July with plenty of topics to navigate.

No, Cowboys Nation won’t see the Hall of Fame Game on August 6. Instead, the contest is postponed a year, which punts the nominees down the road a little further. But, I’ll provide more thoughts on that later.

Of course, we can’t close this month out without discussing quarterback and free agency news. Dak Prescott surprised many by signing his franchise tag tender, and surprisingly, Jamal Adams isn’t the only player volunteering themselves in the Dallas atmosphere.

Before we dive into my five random thoughts, I’d like to wish you and yours a safe, Happy Fourth of July!

The commander signs up for $31.4 million

The quarterback of America’s Team is set to make $31.4 million in 2020 unless the Dallas Cowboys present a long-term deal. Both sides have until July 15.

But will the Cowboys play ball with their quarterback, signing him to a long-term deal that will make him a Cowboy for life? Well, you have to wonder, if it was meant to be wouldn’t it have happened already?

The Cowboys are holding the fort. I don’t see any big splashes from now until July 15. Prescott will play under the franchise tag in 2020, which drags out this situation to even more complicated waters in 2021.

On the plus side, maybe this predicament is in place to land a big name on defense. You may have heard of this safety, right?
