The Facts: Despite Wednesday's deadline to sign Prescott to a long-term deal, there are no scheduled talks between the Dallas Cowboys and the quarterback's agent, Todd France, according to multiple sources.
Diehards Line: While things can change quickly with a simple phone call, there was expected to be more urgency in getting a deal done that would lock Prescott in for the long term while making the quarterback one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL. Prescott signed the exclusive franchise tag tender worth $31.4 million on June 22, which guaranteed he would not miss any of training camp -- whenever it will begin. Without a long-term deal by 4 p.m. ET Wednesday, Prescott will have to play the season on the tag and the sides can't talk again about a long-term deal until January. If the Cowboys were to put the tag on Prescott again in 2021, he would make $37.7 million. The biggest hang-up in the negotiations has been the length of the contract. The Cowboys have offered Prescott five-year deals, while France has countered with four-year options.
