Dak Prescott is still without a new contract with the Cowboys, though the two sides had “very positive” contract talks, according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. The team hit him with a franchise tag this offseason, something that will pay him roughly $31 million if he and the club don’t come to a long-term deal.
Dallas hired Mike McCarthy as their new coach earlier in the offseason. However, Kellen Moore is still the offensive coordinator so Prescott should be able to seamlessly pick things back up when he re-joins the Cowboys, something that puts him in a much better situation than someone like Daniel Jones, who is learning a new system.
The Cowboys have until July 15 to sign Dak to an extension. Here’s more from the NFC East.
- Dallas has done a “ton of work” on Penn State defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com relays. The Cowboys have the No. 17 overall pick in the draft.
- No one is buying the Giants’ smokescreen that they may use their No. 4 pick on a quarterback. New York is hoping that some team may be willing to move trade up to their spot.
- The Eagles are likely to trade Alshon Jeffrey at the draft, as we passed along earlier today.
