The 2024 season is a critical one for the Dallas Cowboys, largely because Dak Prescott’s future with the team is uncertain. This might be his final season with the franchise, and he carries a hefty cap hit of $55.455 million—a significant cost for a team that isn’t currently considered a top contender to reach the NFC Championship.

Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has emphasized that the team is going all-in and is optimistic about making a deeper playoff run compared to last year. However, Dak Prescott hasn’t been provided with additional offensive weapons to expand his options. CeeDee Lamb remains with the Cowboys for 2024, though he’s seeking a contract extension soon.

The organization is managing the quarterback’s contract situation as well as possible. There seems to be a willingness to renew his contract, but much of that will depend on how the upcoming season unfolds.

During a radio appearance last Monday, Dallas Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones clarified the team’s perspective on its current direction and recent decisions.

“I totally believe that Dak can lead us to a championship,” Jones stated, emphasizing his confidence in Prescott’s abilities. “He does everything the right way. He’s definitely the leader of this football team, keeping everyone motivated during the offseason. He ensures everyone is working out and doing all the things required to prepare for a championship.”

Jones also addressed the team’s postseason struggles, providing what he called a “justification” for the extended win drought.

It just so happens that sometimes that old oblong football doesn’t bounce your way. And we’ve had some tough breaks and tough games there in the postseason. But, you know, we’ve won 12 games three years in a row. I think that’s right at the top in terms of what teams have done over a three-year period. And, you know, we’re hanging around the rim. We’ve just gotta go up there and grab it, to use a basketball term, and dunk it in. we’re hanging around the rum. We just gotta get the job done.

On last Tuesday’s edition of NFL Live, the discussion was about what level the Dallas QB needs to reach this year to guarantee his contract extension.


Analyst Tim Hasselbeck believes in Prescott’s talent and doesn’t think he has much to improve on.

I actually don’t think they need to see anything from Dak. I mean, Dak has proved to be a really good player. I don’t think there’s any doubt that they believe that Dak is good enough to help them win a Super Bowl – look at the past contracts he’s signed with them. They certainly have felt that way and look, I would agree because he need to play a little bit better in the postseason, sure he does. And that happens to 31 guys every year, basically because they say, look, I need to play a little bit better in the postseason to get my team over the hump.”

Hasselbeck is living one day at a time: “I think there’s so much attention right now, really by us and others about the future for the Dallas Cowboys. The reality is: they’ve got that president this year. They’ve got Micah Parsons under contract this year. They got CeeDee Lamb under a contract this year. They have other good players on their football team.”
