Dak Prescott's future with the Dallas Cowboys is a major storyline heading into the 2024 season. Dak Prescott enters the final year of his current contract leaving the Cowboys with a critical decision, franchise tag Prescott or secure a long-term extension.

Prescott's value to the Cowboys is undeniable. Despite a 2022 season hampered by injury, he bounced back in 2023 with a Pro Bowl-caliber performance. He threw for an impressive 4,536 yards and 36 touchdowns, solidifying his position as a top quarterback in the league. His leadership and resilience are crucial assets for the Cowboys' success.

Dak Prescott Contract Extension Talks on Hold

With the quarterback market skyrocketing, Dak Prescott and his potential contract extension could be a record-breaker. Analysts predict a lucrative three-year deal worth $180 million, with a significant guaranteed sum. Securing Prescott's long-term commitment would be a win for the Cowboys, providing stability and alleviating salary cap concerns. However, negotiations haven't begun, leaving Prescott's future in Dallas uncertain.

Cowboys Facing Potential Regret?

The lack of contract talks has raised eyebrows across the NFL. Quincy Avery, Deshaun Watson's private quarterback coach, believes the Cowboys are making a big mistake. He bluntly stated that the Cowboys will "get spanked at the table next year" if they wait, potentially forcing them to pay a much higher price tag.

The upcoming season will be pivotal for both Prescott and the Cowboys. Prescott's performance will directly impact his market value and leverage in future negotiations. The Cowboys, meanwhile, will need to weigh the financial implications of a long-term deal against the potential cost of using the franchise tag or letting him walk in free agency.
