“I’ve got confidence something will get done,” Prescott said. “We’ll just leave it there. Obviously being the Cowboys quarterback is second to none. There are very few positions in all of sports that are comparable to it. So when you put that in perspective, my mindset is to be in Dallas. And I’ve got the confidence in my team to get something done and the confidence in the Cowboys that we’ll be able to.”
Prescott didn’t offer a timeline for when he thinks a deal could get done, but he thinks they’ll be able to figure it out.
“I’ll leave that to my team, my agents,” Prescott said. “I’m not necessarily going to say I feel this way about a timeline or this way about this happening before then. I’m just confident that something will get done, something that’s good for both of us.”
Last week, Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said the Cowboys’ No. 1 priority is an extension for Prescott.
“It’s been urgent for us,” Jones said. “We certainly want to get that done. That’s our No. 1 priority as we go into the offseason is to …hopefully find some resolution to it and get that done.”
Prescott finished the final year of his deal and is slated to be a free agent in 2020. Dallas does have their franchise tag at their disposal this offseason.
Prescott, 26, 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 2019, Prescott appeared in all 16 games and completed 65.1 percent of his passes for 4,902 yards, 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He has also rushed for 277 yards and three touchdowns for Dallas. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 10 quarterback out of 37 qualifying players.
