The Dallas Cowboys have a renewed sense of urgency to sign Dak Prescott to a contract extension after the quarterback’s incredible Week 1 performance.

Following Prescott’s phenomenal game against the New York Giants, Jerry Jones said he felt like a deal was “imminent.”

Now he’s doubled down on the optimism.



Prescott has made it clear that he and his representation are pushing for a market-setting contract.

This means he’s looking for more money than what the Los Angeles Rams are paying Jared Goff. That equates to more than $110 million guaranteed.

Previously, Dallas had said it was not going to be setting any new markets. But then Ezekiel Elliott’s holdout spurred a shift in philosophy on that front. If Prescott is going to agree on a new extension it seems the Cowboys will have to bite the bullet again.
