Dak Prescott never wants to leave the Cowboys.
The 25-year-old quarterback, who is entering the final season of his four-year rookie contract, has spent his entire career in Dallas. He told reporters Wednesday he hopes he retires with the team that drafted him in the fourth round of the 2016 draft.
"I mean, I want to be a Cowboy forever," Prescott said, via ESPN. "I think the people that are doing the deal feel the same way, so to me, it's no rush. I know it will get done."
Prescott, a two-time Pro Bowl player, has completed 66.1% of his passes and thrown for 67 touchdowns, along with 25 interceptions, in his career. The Cowboys have a 32-16 record in his starts and have made the postseason twice in his three NFL seasons.
Prescott has a chance to sign the largest contract in franchise history.
"It's all generational money, life-changing money, so it's just a blessing to be able to be in this position," Prescott said. "But as far as the numbers are concerned, my focus is on the locker room, and that will all take care of itself."
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said earlier this month he’s “confident” the team will get a deal done with Prescott.
“We are sold on Dak,” Jones said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We do want to have him for the long term. We think he is worthy of investing in for the long term. He is going into his fourth year in the NFL. When you look at the snaps he has had, the situations he has been in and how he has got here, and you see he has performed, we see real upside in Dak.
“You don’t have it all yet. We love the way he logically progresses through a game. You see when the going gets tough, when he’s got to come from behind, when he turns it loose a little bit. You see him make those plays. He emboldens me to make a deal with him that puts him here for the long term.”
The Cowboys finished 2018 with a 10-6 record and advanced to the divisional round of the playoffs, where they fell to the Rams.
