The Cowboys will a long to-do list at the end of the season. First thing, it appears the Cowboys are headed toward a coaching search.

Then, they’ll have to address their players whose contracts expire. That group includes quarterback Dak Prescott and receiver Amari Cooper.

So, in the locker room Thursday, there were a lot of questions about the future even as the Cowboys remain mathematically alive for the NFC East title.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he would think about his future “at some point in the future.”

Prescott was asked about Garrett’s expiring contract and pointed to his own expiring contract.

“I think it’s the last game on mine as well,” Prescott said, “so I be damned if I speak on anybody else’s future or their place.”

Prescott’s agent has negotiated with the Cowboys for months without a deal. The quarterback said he was “not at all” surprised.

“I’m just not surprised,” Prescott said. “. . .It’s the business. It’s my first time going through it. Not surprised by anything that comes from it — from the league, from the team, from whatever. Learning as I go.”

  1. Jerry is a shrewd gm and will make these moves at the appropriate time. speaking of lists, I fully expect to see him atop your list of best gm’s this decade.

  2. We aren’t surprised either, Dak. You aren’t worth anywhere near what you are demanding.

  3. He will get one. He is a good quarterback, not a great one. His new contract will probably pay him a lot less than the one he rejected in the middle of the season. No one, including Jerry Jones, is likely to pay him more than the MVP wannabe in Seattle makes.

  4. The GM in Dallas has screwed up the salary cap the coaching search and has overpaid the wrong players. And think he deserves all the credit for their success. Until they fix the situation , I don’t know why anyone would be in a hurry to sign a contract there.

  5. next coach will have his say on both dak and amri….one of the smartest things thats happened in dallas in more than a decade!!!

  6. “Has anyone in dallas that got their pay day early in the season continue ton play at a high level?”

    La’el Collins. Best lineman this season regardless of the Pro Bowl!
