Dak Prescott Submits Counteroffer To Cowboys

May 23, 2019 8:38 AM

Negotiations between the Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott are going well, according to Jerry Jones.

"I'd generally say going well," Jones said. "These things never have a definitive answer. Because you never know if you've done it until you've done it."

Prescott is entering the final season of his rookie contract and is reportedly targeting a extension worth at least $30 million per year.

The quarterback recently said that he and his team have submitted a counteroffer to the Cowboys.

"I can't really say on that. It's one from each side," Prescott said of how close the two sides were on compensation. "So yeah, it's my first time doing this. Ask me in a few years and I'll know I'll be able to tell you we sent this one, they sent this one, we're about to get it done. But right now, I'm learning the process too and letting my team handle their business."
