The Dallas Cowboys want to get a long-term deal done with Dak Prescott, preferably before the March 9 franchise tag deadline.

According to a report, Prescott's representation and the Cowboys' discussions on a new deal are "more productive than they have been."

Placing the franchise tag on the quarterback would result in a $37.7 million cap hit for the Cowboys but give them until July 15 to continue negotiating. Not placing the franchise tag on Prescott would make him a free agent March 17.
