Good news: Dak Prescott have renewed his contract today…

Cowboys’ Dak Prescott knows ‘business will take care of itself’ regarding new deal, doesn’t ‘play for money’



FRISCO, Texas —  Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said “We want Dak Prescott. That’s that.” when asked how motivated he is to retain Prescott as his team’s long-term, face of the franchise quarterback.



Jones made that comment two days before the 2024 NFL Draft on April 23, and based on how emphatic he was in saying it, the natural conclusion would be that a new deal for Prescott, who enters 2024 in the last season of a four-year, $160 million contract he signed back in 2021, was imminent. However, nearly a month has passed, and Dallas already has two organized team activities (OTA) workouts under their belt without Prescott receiving a new deal.



Prescott, the 2023 season leader in passing touchdowns (36), isn’t phased by the lack of a deal at this moment in time while stressing the importance of not holding out with much of his receiving core trending younger outside of Brandin Cooks (age 30).



“Business, business is business. I’ll leave it where it gets handled,” Prescott said Wednesday at Cowboys OTAs. “Right now, it’s about being my best for this team right now in this moment. OTAs is helping these guys out and just focused on that and I know my business will take care of itself. Been in it before, experienced [in talks with Jerry and Stephen Jones] and just controlling what I can right now.”



The 31-year-old quarterback, who will start his ninth NFL season on July 29 and has already been selected for three Pro Bowls, is coming off of a season in which he was named to the 2023 Second-Team All-Pro, finished second in the league MVP voting behind Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, and had his most productive season to date (105.9 passer rating).
