Dak Prescott explains how contract negotiations have affected his future outlook with Cowboys

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will be playing this season on the franchise tag, but it doesn’t appear to have had an impact on his future plans with the team.

Prescott, in the past, has indicated that he wants to remain with the Cowboys for the entirety of his career, and apparently, he still feels that way, even though his camp and the Cowboys failed to come to an agreement on a long-term contract extension.

In fact, Prescott even went on to say that the back-and-forth negotiating between the two sides has brought the two “closer together.”

He may not have received the financial security that comes from a long-term contract, but life is still pretty good for Prescott, who will make $31.4 million playing on the franchise tag this season. Not only that, he’s surrounded by weapons on the offensive side of the ball, so he’ll likely put up big numbers — resulting in him likely getting paid in a big way next year, either by the Cowboys or another NFL team.
