Dak Prescott: I plan to be a Cowboy for the rest of my career

USA TODAY Sports

He’s said it before, and he’ll say it again.

Dak Prescott repeated Friday on SiriusXM NFL Radio what he has said many times since failing to reach a long-term deal with the Cowboys by the July 15 deadline.

I’m very optimistic,” Prescott said. “That’s business, and there’s all kind of avenues in business of why it might not get worked out. I’m very confident that I’ll be a Cowboy, and as I’ve said before, I plan to be a Cowboy for the rest of my career. So there’s no worries when it goes into that. There’s no thoughts that I allow to distract me. This is the place to be. As I talk about the team and how exciting this offense can be with the new coaching staff, how great this defense is going to be, and this team, in general. This is the place to be, and I’m excited to be a Cowboy more importantly.”

But while both sides are optimistic about Prescott remaining in Dallas, the fact exists that Prescott is not guaranteed to play for the Cowboys even next season, much less for the rest of his career.

Prescott will make $31.4 million under the one-year franchise tender. The sides can revisit a long-term deal after the season, but it will cost the Cowboys $37.68 million to tag him in 2021 if they can’t get it done.

  1. I hope he is a Cowboy for a long time because Dallas isn’t and wasn’t significant before and with him.
    The last time the Cowboys were a factor Barry Switzer was licking up Jimmy Johnson’s success. 25 years and counting…

  2. Meaning I Will take Fair pay to stay here with All this All Star Talent just do not do Not send me to the Jags where I will be Exposed
    ! I Need this supporting cast badly!

  3. The question: is a 35 mil (plus endorsements) businessman the best person to lead your team? Or do you want a quarterback?

  4. As a life long Cowboys fan god please do not let that happen.. at this point I’m afraid I won’t see the Cowboys win another superbowl.

  5. Most of the fans saying the Cowboys are not a factor need to look at the records of the teams they are fans of. The cowboys have 5 superbowl wins and have a better winning percentage than most teams. Don’t talk crap when you are a eagles fan and have one superbowl I 50 years lol

    What do past championships have to do with being “a factor” right now today?
    I can’t speak for anyone else, but I came here to read about football, not ancient history. đŸ™‚

  7. If that’s the case Dak then why did you turned down a 5 years contract and wanted 4 instead… shorter year with the team ?

  8. There’s a 99% chance Dak will be in Dallas for years to come, so he’s smart to have that same outlook.

    You know nothing about NFL contracts.

  10. this guy is just Trubisky with legs;

    the only way the Cowsills win anything with him under centre is is the NFL make it mandatory that all teams run the single wing offence;

  11. Reckon I’m just so old school, but I still like to think there is still some measure of devotion and dedication to a team principle left in the league. Same as employee/employer relationships, gotta be a 2 way street though. Does the cowboys organization work the same way? Jerry has shown that in the past.
