FRISCO – In mid-May, Dak Prescott is not doing anything to publicly intensify the negotiations of ongoing contracts with the Cowboys.
The quarterback continues to say all the right things with respect to an extension that is expected to pay for the previous $ 30 million neighborhood fourth round selection in the neighborhood. Speaking at the team's annual Reliant Home Run Derby to raise money for the Salvation Army on Wednesday, he did not set a deadline when he wants the deal made.
"I want to be a cowboy forever," Prescott said. "I think the people who are making the deal feel the same, so for me there is no rush, I know it will be done."
Prescott, who was named the Most Valuable Player of the event for hitting five homers, insists he is absorbed in the team's off-season job. The activities organized as a team begin next week.
"It's all generational money, money that changes lives, so it's a blessing to be in this position," Prescott said. "But as far as numbers go, my focus is on the locker room, I know he'll take care of himself, so that's what it is … I want to be a cowboy, I'm pretty sure I'll be a cowboy for a long time. I do not have any worry or anxiety. "
Prescott, of course, is not the only Cowboys player to have a sizeable extension. Dallas has not started working on a new deal for Pro Bowl running back Ezekiel Elliott, who signed up to 2020, although the team has talked about eventually rewarding him at the top of the market in his position.
"I'm not worried," Zeke said, and shook his head.
How will you deal with the questions?
"Just go and play football," he said. "Do what I've been doing."
The Cowboys are also trying to make an extension with receiver Amari Cooper, who bounced back last season after Dallas traded him for him in October. Cooper talked about the benefit of being in a low season with Prescott for the first time, but the public relations staff ended his quick interview just before raising a question about the contract negotiations.
"That was the last question," Cooper said with a smile. "Sorry."
