The NFL world had much to say on Tuesday after news on the Dallas Cowboys emerged. It doesn’t appear that the Cowboys are any closer to negotiating a long-term deal with quarterback Dak Prescott. That situation is quite the opposite, in fact, as the Cowboys and Prescott are clear on only one thing: It’s 2024, and then we’ll see.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport emerged Tuesday with new details on the current status of the relationship between Prescott and the Cowboys.

“The Cowboys and QB Dak Prescott have a mutual understanding of his contract situation,” Rapoport said on X. “With no offers from Dallas despite him being in a contract year. Owner Jerry Jones said, ‘We are where we are, locked and loaded for this year.”

Rapoport added that there’s “no indication” that a new deal between both sides is coming soon.

Prescott has thrown for 29,459 career yards and 202 career touchdowns, with just 74 career interceptions. He’s 73-41 since he took over the Cowboys quarterback job in 2016, replacing Tony Romo in the process. Dak led the Cowboys to the postseason three times in his career thus far, but all three times, Dallas came up short of their goals.

Dallas hasn’t reached the NFC Championship Game since 1995. So while it all might not be Prescott’s thought, the argument might be that he’s not helping it along either.

It sounds like 2024 will be a pivotal year in Dallas. The NFL world had lots to say.
