REPORT: Cowboys Won’t Offer Dak Prescott Contract Extension And He Will Play Final Year On Deal

2024 might be Dak Prescott’s final year with the Dallas Cowboys.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Prescott and the Cowboys have a “mutual understanding” about his contract situation and the team hasn’t offered the quarterback an extension.

The move paves the way for Prescott to become an unrestricted free agent in 2025 because the Cowboys can’t franchise tag Prescott after his contract concludes at the end of this year.

Many believed a new deal seemed like the likely outcome after Prescott finished second in 2023 MVP voting with 36 passing touchdowns and a career-high 105.9 quarterback rating. However Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hasn’t expressed much urgency about locking up the 30-year-old signal caller beyond 2024.


Dallas decreased Prescott’s cap hit to $55.5 million by converting a $5 million roster bonus into a signing bonus. Yet it’s still the NFL’s second-highest number behind Deshaun Watson for 2024.
