The Dallas Cowboys are doing everything in their power to keep their star players tied to the team. It took a while before the Cowboys got the Ezekiel Elliott extension inked on the dotted line. Unfortunately for the fans, they may expect more of the same with franchise quarterback Dak Prescott.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed in his tweet that it’s highly unlikely for Prescott to finalize his extension before the team’s opener against the New York Giants tomorrow.

Schefter was also quick to detail in his ESPN piece that Prescott is in no rush to get a new contract over the line. The former Mississippi State Bulldog has loss of value and disability insurance policies. Combine that with his multi-year endorsement deals, the number he is owed can easily balloon to $50 million.

Team owner Jerry Jones confirmed that they are interested in tying Prescott down. However, he is in no rush to get his QB to sign to a new long-term deal.

“Let’s don’t get into how we thought or how we were going to get there,” Jerry Jones said Friday morning on his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan’s Ben & Skin. “The bottom line is based upon where we are we should be able to get our job done. And I really never planned to have a whole bunch [of salary cap space] leftover.”

Prescott has performed exceptionally well in his three seasons with the Cowboys. He averaged more than 3,300 passing yards in his three seasons with America’s Team so far, completing 975 passes and making 67 passing touchdowns. He is clearly worth more than the fourth-round position he was picked up on.

Prescott will be the team’s premier QB for the next decade, and it’s in the Cowboys’ best interests to tie him up. However, with the two parties not particularly keen in inking a new deal, the fans need to anxiously wait for the good news.
