Jerry Jones: Imminent may be my opinion, may not be Dak Prescott’s

After the Cowboys throttled the Giants on Sunday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that agreement on a contract extension with Dak Prescott was “imminent.”

Executive vice president Stephen Jones sounded a different note on Monday when he said “in due time [an agreement] will find its way.” He added that you’d have to ask his father what he meant by imminent because the elder Jones “has different meanings for different words.”

Jones was asked that question during a Tuesday appearance on 105.3 The Fan. His definition was pretty textbook, although he allowed that his read of the situation might not be shared by Prescott.

“It means ready to take place. Close. Near. About to happen,” Jones said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. “Those types of things. . . . I think we are fast approaching an agreement . . . That might be my opinion. It might not be Dak’s opinion.”

A lot of words have been said about when Prescott might get a contract extension and what the extension will look like when it comes. Action has been in shorter supply, although it will only take one flurry of activity to change that.

  1. After Sunday’s Week 1 performance, “immanent” might be in the best interest of Jerry Jones, because Dak’s play was doing a HELL of a job negotiating on Prescott’s behalf.

  2. I’m an eagles fan and I think Steven Jones unlike his father is actually doin a good job. Jerry has no patience and thinks he can buy his way out of any bad situation.Steven unlike his old man seems to think things through before reacting.

  3. It’s like I said before, time is on Dak’s side. The longer he plays, the better he looks, the higher the price tag. Pretty soon the Cowboys are going to want to stop the bleeding and hope he signs for $35 million a year. Since Dak’s been in the league, maybe one or two QB’s have won more games. That’s all, and it’s most definitely a QB league.

  4. I don’t think the other 31 teams combined create as much drama around contract negotiations. Just keep it in house for the love of God!

  5. I am not judging Dak’s performance on one game. Especially against the Giants. I’m no Jerruh fan, I do like his son. BUt I mean think of all the QBs out there that light it up for a few games and suddenly get rewarded with contracts that aren’t worth it. It is one game. I’ve been watching him down here since he started. Meh.

  6. If Dak keeps playing at is current level his free agent market price should be about $34 to $40 million a year and around $125 fully guaranteed from the QB desperate teams (Denver, Tampa, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Detroit, Miami, Arizona (if the air raid doesn’t work), San Francisco (Grapo still unproven and hasn’t looked good), the we have a really old QB and need a new one group (New England, New Orleans, and San Diego), Colts, Never now with Minnesota and Cousins (Minnesota started the trend of way over paying a mediocre QB) and any of the recent drafted QB’s that will be busts.

    Dallas should offer a straight up trade with Green Bay, Dak for Aaron who seems to have run his course in Green Bay and might like to move on.

  7. One game against a bad defense, and we are all so sure Dak will continue to play this well? I think that it would be beneficial for Dak to cash in when he’s hot. That’s now. That might not be next week.

    You’re not wrong, but if Dak keeps playing at his current level and does not get signed this year, his future is the franchise tag which will be about $27 million in 2020…..or the transition tag which I think is about $25 million in 2020 As it stands right now, 2020 will be a year where teams can use both tags in the off-season. That benefits the Cowboys, because they can get 1 of the 3 big FA’s signed (Prescott, Cooper, Jones) and then use the tags on the other 2. For example, the Cowboys could place the transition tag on Dak and then just match the “open market” offer from any team.

    I’m not sure how this would all play out and I’m not saying this is ideal, but I think this would be an alternative for the Cowboys and within the CBA.

  9. Dak will sign a new contract, that’s a lock. If Dak looks amazing the next two weeks against WAS and MIA, he would be smart to get a deal done before the Cowboys start playing legit teams like NO and GB.

  10. If Zeke goes down.. Down goes Dak.. He is not that good without Zeke. That’s why Jerruh paid Zeke first!!

  11. It seems like they went thru this same thing with Romo. While they were in negotiations, Romo kept having these 250+ yard/ 2+ TD games… every game that passed, it seemed that Romo increased his value by $5M.

    They play the Jets this week… Prescott might increase is value by another $10M

    That’s at least a couple posters who commented that it’s “just one game.” It’s NOT “just one game” – it’s now 49 games (regular season starts), of which he’s come out a winner 33 times.
    He’s led 14 game-winning drives in just three years, including 8 4th quarter comebacks.
