The ongoing Dak Prescott contract saga continues to go nowhere, fast. The latest report on the Dallas Cowboys quarterback could not be more clear on this front.

Dak Prescott, Cowboys haven’t had ‘earnest’ contract negotiations in months

Speaking on the Prescott/Cowboys contract situation Tuesday on NFL Network, Ian Rapoport said there hasn’t been much going on: “Dak Prescott’s agent from CAA and the Dallas Cowboys really haven’t negotiated in earnest in the last several weeks, or really, the last several months.”

Rapoport was responding to comments made by Troy Aikman about how he’s optimistic the two sides will get a deal done soon.

“I’m not saying anything the Cowboys don’t already know,” Aikman said speaking with 105.3 The Fan. “They will pay him, he’s going to make a lot of money, and I think he’s going to be the quarterback for the Cowboys for a long long time, and continue to have a great career.

“I’ve maintained that I strongly believe that they’ll reach a deal, and he’ll have a long-term contract as opposed to playing under the franchise tag this year.”

The Cowboys have shared that same optimism publicly. However, there remains a huge divide between the two parties. Mainly, that divide has to do with how long of a contract Prescott will sign. He reportedly does not want a five-year deal, but Dallas wants him to sign for that length.

For what it’s worth, we’re of the opinion that Prescott absolutely should stick to his guns.
