Dak Prescott is comfortable with the Dallas Cowboys' slow approach to contract talks. Prescott is entering the final season of a four-year, $160 million deal he signed with the Cowboys in 2021. Prescott is set to count $55.4 million against the cap. The Cowboys cannot use the franchise tag on him after this year, and he has a no-trade clause.

Prescott said negotiations have not really begun with the Cowboys on a new deal, although he had what he termed a "great conversation" with owner and general manager Jerry Jones about a month ago.

"I'm focused on here, right now where I am," Prescott said Friday as he prepared to take part in the Children's Cancer Fund's "A Knight to Remember" gala, where he serves as a co-chair with Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman. "That's how I've always been. Anytime y'all have asked me, it's always been about right now, getting better tomorrow. And I've been in this situation before, so it's OK. I'm fine in any situation at that point betting on myself or playing this year out."
