The Dallas Cowboys "absolutely" want to sign Dak Prescott to a long-term deal.

"Our whole thing with Dak is him being a Cowboy," executive vice president Stephen Jones said. "That's all that's on our mind."

Prescott is scheduled to count $59.4 million against the salary cap for 2024 in the final year of his contract. 

The Cowboys could do a simple restructuring that would give them $18.52 million in cap relief for this season, but it would push money to 2025 and 2026 with Prescott counting nearly $55 million against the cap in 2025 even if he played elsewhere.

The Cowboys, though, say they are committed to Prescott long term and want to sign him to a long-term deal.

"We got ways to adjust his cap number for this season," Jones said of Prescott. "Obviously between Dak and Micah [Parsons] and CeeDee [Lamb], the salary cap is real for us. We want to do deals with all three of them. Do you get to do everything you want to do with the salary cap? I don't think any team does. But we're certainly going to be able to go out and go to work and get the things done that we feel like we need to get done to be successful."
