Cowboys QB Dak Prescott happy for Carson Wentz’s new deal, still waiting on his own
While the Eagles will pay Wentz top dollar in Philly, Prescott is still waiting for an extension from the Cowboys. Regarding the matter, he told Pro Football Focus’ Charean Williams on June 13, “I’ve got my cowboy hat on. I’m a Cowboy. Let’s say that.”
Prescott went on to say he’s happy for Wentz, per Williams.
I was happy for Carson, a guy that deserves it, a guy who has been great in this league. [He] had an awesome year and potentially, without the injury, wins the MVP. Congrats to Carson. Knowing him personally, he deserves it.

Wentz agreed to a four-year, $128 million contract extension with the Eagles on June 6. The deal includes more than $107 million in guaranteed money.
Prescott is entering the last year of his rookie contract. According to Williams, “That puts him in line for the franchise tag, barring a long-term deal.” However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is confident he will lock up Prescott to a long-term deal.
Williams asked Prescott if he foresees a new deal before the 2019 NFL season kicks off in September. He said, “It happens when it happens.”

Prescott also added he’s been “involved” in contract negotiations with the Cowboys’ front office, per Pro Football Talk.
Will Prescott get his megadeal sooner than later? Stay tuned.
