As the days drop more and more in the summer and the calendar closes on July 15th, the window continues to close on Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys who enter into a long-term contract before the 2020 season.
As of Wednesday, Prescott and the Cowboys are one week before the deadline to sign an extension and Dallas has an offer on the table, but it’s longer than the famous quarterback wants, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported.
It is not in the realm of the 10-year pact that Patrick Mahomes signed Monday with the leaders of Kansas City, but it is longer than Prescott̵
July 15th is the deadline for franchise players to sign long-term extensions with.
Prescott signed his call for tenders on June 22, so there are no obstacles to training on the horizon. The two-time Pro Bowler is statistically coming out of a huge season in which his 4,902-yard career transition was the second in the NFL and the second of all time in the franchise chronicle. His 30 touchdowns were also the best of his career in his four-season tenure.
Turning 27 before the end of the month, Prescott is expected to earn $ 31.4 million this season on the tag. Of the eight quarterbacks that have been labeled as franchises in NFL history, only two played the following season on the tag – Drew Brees and Kirk Cousins - and each of them eventually signed up with a new team, according to NFL Research.
For now, however, there is still a week for Prescott and the Cowboys to train long-term and, as Pelissero said, this “always seemed destined to go online”.
