Dak Prescott will have a new deal in place before the start of the upcoming season.

While speaking to reporters Wednesday following the Cowboys’ second OTA practice, the fourth-year quarterback offered an update on his anticipated contract extension.

“It’s one (proposal) from each side,” Prescott said. “It’s my first time doing this. Ask me in a few years and I’ll be able to tell you, ‘OK, we sent this one, they’ve sent that one, we’re about to get it done.’ Right now, I’m learning the process too and just letting my team handle their business.”

The 25-year-old, who is entering the final season of his four-year rookie contract, said agent Todd France is hoping to finalize a deal that will net around $30 million a year after Russell Wilson inked a four-year extension worth $140 million with the Seahawks earlier this offseason.

Behind Wilson are the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger and the Packers' Aaron Rodgers, who boast average salaries of $34 million and $33.5 million, respectively.

“When you look at the numbers, a lot of it’s about the market,” Prescott added. “So I don’t really pay attention to any of that. It’ll get done eventually.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, speaking from the league's spring meetings in South Florida, told NFL Media that negotiations with Prescott are progressing.

Ezekiel Elliott on workload, contract status: ‘I haven’t worn down yet’

Ezekiel Elliott on workload, contract status: ‘I haven’t worn down yet’ Executive vice president Stephen Jones said last week that Elliott is "a guy we want to have here long term." “The only reason you say, well maybe he’s not at the front (of the extension order) is because he’s got this year, then he’s got another year on his tender. ... But Zeke’s every bit as important.” Elliott, 23, is set to make $3.9 million in 2019. The Cowboys picked up the fifth-year option of his rookie contract last month, which will pay him $9.1 million for the 2020 season.

A -million contract extension sat on the table for Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott and he declined the offer . In addition, the negotiations could potentially start to get tougher at this point. Prescott is obviously asking for a massive deal which would make him one of the highest, if not the

Cowboys QB Prescott insists he’s focused on the locker room as agent Todd France works to finalize a deal expected to range around million a year. “ It ’s my first time doing this. Ask me in a few years and I’ll be able to tell you, ‘OK, we sent this one, they’ve sent that one, we ’ re about to get it

“I’d generally say going well," Jones said. "These things never have a definitive answer. Because you never know if you’ve done it until you’ve done it.”

Prescott has spent his entire career in Dallas and told reporters last week that 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. "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."

Another player due to get a new deal is running back Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys picked up the fifth-year option of his rookie contract last month, which will pay him $9.1 million for the 2020 season after he earns $3.9 million in 2019.

Jason Witten: Cowboys 'extremely loyal to signing their own'.
The veteran tight end is vouching for the loyalty of Jerry Jones and Company and predicting new deals for his fellow offensive playmakers. "Look, this organization is extremely loyal to signing their own players," Witten said Wednesday. "They believe in that. I think when it all kind of clears out, that will be the same thing. I think these players know that — Amari, Zeke, Dak — that those things get resolved because both sides want to be there. "I love how they're handling it. They're here working and they're not getting caught up in that.
