New, comments

As the deadline closes in, there seems to be some communication.

When it comes to situations like the deadline that the Dallas Cowboys have to get Dak Prescott signed to a long-term deal, every report is significant. There has been so much said about this subject for over a year now, but obviously as we are approaching the deadline what is said now is the most important. To this point just about every report has been saying that there isn’t a lot of hope that a deal between the team and player will get done, and many reports have said that there hasn’t even been communication between the two.

It has been said that there has been no real communication between Prescott’s representation and the Cowboys since March, but that seems to no longer be the case. The next 24 hours are going to be fun.

Apparently Dak Prescott and the Cowboys have had some communication

Just about every major outlet has reported that a deal between Prescott and the Cowboys is unlikely, but obviously talking about this is important. According to 105.3 The Fan’s Bryan Broaddus, there has been some discussion between the two parties as of late. Perhaps they are making an attempt at getting this thing done.

If this whole song and dance feels somewhat familiar to you that’s because the Cowboys went down to the wire with the franchise tag deadline when they signed Dez Bryant to a long-term deal five years ago. Looking at the timeline of how that all came together is interesting in comparison to what is happening regarding Dak Prescott.

If a deal is ultimately going to come together then things have to go from not talking to talking to “heating up” all the way to pen meeting paper.
