There appears to be good news on the Dak Prescott front. Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys appear to be making new progress in contract talks with quarterback Dak Prescott.

According to Mike Leslie of WFAA, the two sides have made recent visits, and there is a new offer on the table. Cowboys insider Mike Fisher said the two sides are trading proposals of four- and five-year deals.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports added that the Cowboys would prefer a five-year deal, but they ultimately may compromise as they’re the side that wants a long-term contract done more.

The Cowboys have used the franchise tag on Prescott, so he’ll be with them in 2020 either way. They do not want the uncertainty beyond that, though. They’ve made aggressive offers in the past, but the $35 million sum that is rumored would be the highest yet — and perhaps sufficient to get something done with the quarterback.
