Cowboys In ‘Active’ Contract Talks With Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper


According to Cowboys VP Stephen Jones, the team is engaged in “active” contract talks with QB Dak Prescott and WR Amari Cooper, per Jon Machota.

The Cowboys have made no secret about their desire to extend two major pieces they view as the core of their offense, so this isn’t a big surprise. 

“You look at a quarterback that has had the success he’s had,” Jones said about Prescott, per Machota. “He’s done everything the right way. I think he deserves to have his contract looked at in a very progressive way.”

Prescott, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2016. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $2.72 million contract and set to make a base salary of $720,000 for the 2019 season.

In 2018, Prescott has appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and completed 67.7 percent of his passes for 3,885 yards to go along with 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He has also rushed for 305 yards and six touchdowns.

Cooper, 24, is a former No. 4 overall pick by the Raiders out of Alabama in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Raiders traded him to the Cowboys for a first-round pick midway through the 2018 season.

He is in the final year of his four-year, $22.7 million fully guaranteed rookie contract and is set to earn a base salary of $705,000 for 2018 to go along with a $2,825,426 roster bonus.

In 2018, Cooper appeared in 15 games, six for the Raiders and nine for the Cowboys. In total, he caught 75 passes for 1005 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.
