Sad News: Dak Prescott Declines Contract Extension with Dallas Cowboys, Eyeing Exit…”

The Dallas Cowboys have made very little headlines this offseason due to their inactivity in free agency. However, there has been significant NFL news on contract talks with quarterback Dak Prescott and there’s now more information on negotiations between the two sides.
There has seemed to be a lot of back-and-forth between Dallas and its star quarterback since the team was eliminated from the playoffs. Team owner Jerry Jones pushed back on a possible extension but CEO Stephen Jones indicated that the club ‘absolutely‘ wants to extend Prescott’s contract.
In March, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Prescott and the Cowboys have a “mutual understanding” of his situation and he was poised to become a free agent in 2025. Days later, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports refuted that with word the two sides wanted an extension. Now, things have taken another turn.
During an appearance on Saturday’s SportsCenter, ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler explained that the Cowboys are taking a “passive” approach to contract talks with Prescott.
On the one hand, the Cowboys’ slower approach to contract talks makes sense. With current estimates projecting an extension at $55 to $60 million annually in the next long-term deal, Dallas should feel a bit uncomfortable considering Prescott’s poor track record in the playoffs.
