In hindsight, the Cowboys could franchise tag Prescott during the offseason, but both sides seem to be interested in working out a longterm deal.
Earlier reports suggested that Dak was looking for $40 million a season, something the Cowboys do not want to do because it would stop them from putting money in other areas for the team.
Now, Prescott has reportedly adjusted his demands.
“Since then I’ve been told that he’s come down. The number is closer to 33, 35-ish. But for whatever reason they’re still not able to get this deal done,” NFL Network’s Jane Slater said on The ‘Boys And Girl Podcast.
That number still seems to be too high for the Cowboys front office. They just might be willing to wait this out until the offseason to make a final decision.
Dallas (4-3) and New York (2-6) are set to do battle on Monday Night Football.
