It’s been 9 days since those comments and nothing has happened yet. On Sunday, Dak carved up the Redskins to put the team at 2-0 and still nothing has happened two days later.
Stephen Jones, the team’s executive vice president, said on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio this week and claimed “there’s not a big difference” between where the Cowboys are and where Prescott’s representatives are in negotiations.
“We’re already up there in rare air in terms of where the money is,” Stephen Jones said on Schein on Sports.
Jones was then asked if he may have meant Dak’s deal might exceed what Goff got.
“I wouldn’t say it’s fair to say that,” Stephen Jones said. “Any time you get in that top-five area, you think a lot of somebody.”
“I know that they want to basically make this as thorough, I’ll use that word, or they don’t want to leave a stone unturned, and ‘they’ being, not Dak, his team, you must call it, which is his agents and the people that advise him,” Jerry Jones said Tuesday on his radio show on 105.3 The Fan. “No, it doesn’t surprise me [that it’s not done yet]. It doesn’t bother me a bit. I look at Dak long-term and this is a short-term thing. It obviously doesn’t affect him playing football not to have an extension. So, all of that is a good thing.”
Eventually, that deal is going to come, especially if Dak continues to pile up the wins. Who knows what his numbers will look like after playing the Miami Dolphins this upcoming weekend.
