Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has full faith in his agent and the organization to get a deal done when the time is right.
Appearing in front of the media at the Dallas Cowboys’ 10th annual home run derby, Prescott discussed his next contract, as his current one is set to expire at the end of 2024.
“That’s something I leave to the Cowboys, and I leave to my agent,” Prescott said while speaking to reporters earlier this week.
“They got it done years ago, and when it’s time to get it done again, I trust in both of them. As Stephen has said, it might happen overnight. Who knows, right? But that’s not any of my concern or in my thought process.”

Currently, Prescott is in the midst of a four-year, $160 million contract that he signed back in 2021.
Unfortunately for Dak and the Cowboys, however, the 29-year-old is coming off one of his worst seasons in the National Football League as he tied for the league-led in interceptions with 15 despite missing multiple games due to injury. Furthermore, Prescott tossed two crucial picks in the team’s NFC Divisional Round loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
The Cowboys and their fans will certainly be hoping that Prescott is able to fix the turnover issues that ailed him last year, as the NFC East franchise heads into next season as projected Super Bowl contenders, with their current betting odds trailing only the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills, and Cincinnati Bengals.
Following the trade of Aaron Rodgers from the Packers and the release of Derek Carr from the Las Vegas Raiders, Prescott — who has been the Dallas Cowboys’ starting quarterback since the 2016 season — is now the longest-tenured signal-caller in the NFL. Despite this, though, he still just has two playoff wins to show for it.
