The Dallas Cowboys are closer to a new contract with Dak Prescott than Amari Cooper at this point in time.

A deal with Prescott would make the quarterback the highest-paid player in Cowboys history, according to a report.

Jerry Jones said the team is sold on Prescott and that the quarterback's style of play "emboldens me to make a deal with him that puts him here for the long term."

If talks with Cooper don't improve, Dallas could use the franchise tag on the receiver following the 2019 season.
