Jerry Jones sidesteps questions about Dak Prescott’s contract

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t seem to be in a great mood following last week’s mistake-filled loss to the New England Patriots.

After said loss, Jones did not exactly go to bat for head coach Jason Garrett. He’s now turning his attention to star quarterback Dak Prescott.

When asked about the status of a Prescott extension on NFL Network Wednesday morning, Jones sidestepped the question. Instead, he talked about the need to win football games.

Pretty up front about Prescott extension talks, this is the first time Jones has refused to even talk about it when posed with a question.

It’s understandable that Jones is frustrated. His Cowboys sit at just 6-5 on the season after a 3-0 start. They are 0-4 against winning teams heading into Thanksgiving’s matchup against the 8-3 Bills.

An impending free agent, Prescott has been stellar thus far this season. He’s put up an NFL-high 3,433 passing yards to go with 24 total touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 11 starts.
