The Dallas Cowboys don’t want to have to rely on the franchise tag to keep Dak Prescott around.

According to Ian Rapoport, the team “would like to get something done before the franchise tag window.” Currently, Prescott has no deal, despite the fact we’ve been talking about this for about a year at this point.

You can check out Rapoport’s full comments below.

I don’t understand at all how this deal is taking so long. It makes no sense to me. When you find a starting quarterback, you wrap him up for a while.

Is Prescott an elite gunslinger? No, he’s not. He’s not Russell Wilson or Aaron Rodgers. He’s not even close, but he’s solid.

The Cowboys should offer him top-10 money, and promise to spend the extra on weapons for him on offense. Handing him Wilson-level money would be a mistake.

Dallas needs to get this done before it turns into Kirk Cousins 2.0, which seems to be where we’re heading. It doesn’t make sense at all.

The Cowboys should lock him up with a reasonable contract, and then we can all move on!
