Cowboys franchise DE Demarcus Lawrence mentioned that he isn’t concerned about his contract situation and knows he’s another productive year away from cashing in.
“It really doesn’t matter,” Lawrence said, via the Dallas Morning News. “If I do my thing, I put up my stats and I help my team win, they ain’t got no choice but to sign me. That’s how I feel.”
Regarding future contract negotiations, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said he wants to play the best he can in 2018 and let the situation play itself out.
“I want to be the best I can. I want to be the best quarterback that the Cowboys ever had,” Prescott said, via the Dallas Morning News. “So when I go in each and every day, it’s just about being the best player I can be. All that stuff comes when you play the game well.” (Jon Machota)
