The season officially begins on Sunday afternoon for the Dallas Cowboys with a home date against the New York Giants (this is the 503rd year in a row that that matchup starts the year).
That means that we’re officially inside of 48 hours to kickoff against the Giants which is very exciting. It’s potentially very stressful for the Cowboys as they finish up a very busy week that saw contract negotiations with both La’el Collins and Ezekiel Elliott. For what it’s worth, they might not be done as they have contracts yet to be worked out with both Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper.
What of those talks, though? What type of timeframe are we looking at? Stephen Jones appeared on 105.3 The Fan on Friday and added some clarification, if you want to call it that, to both Prescott and Cooper. He noted that the Cowboys are hopeful to get something done with Prescott by kickoff but also added that things are currently “very limited on Amari for a range of reasons that will eventually get worked out.”
"I would say yes on Dak, very limited on Amari for a range of reasons that will eventually get worked out." - Stephen Jones on if he is having dialogue with those players and their representation.— Jeff Cavanaugh (@JC1053) September 6, 2019

We’ll see if the Cowboys are able to work something out with their franchise quarterback, but that line about Cooper is very interesting. What could these variety of reasons be? Contract particulars that the sides have yet to agree to?
Cooper seems ready to make a deal and waiting for Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones apparently isn’t something that is on his mind.
Only time will tell what happens next.
