Along with Prescott, Cooper and Elliott are due for extensions. Prescott is sent to earn just over $2 million in base salary this season, which is the final year of his rookie contract. Elliott had the fifth year of his rookie deal picked up and Cooper is scheduled to make $13.9 million this season on the fifth-year option of his rookie contract the Raiders had already picked up.

Prescott said the conversations are moving along when it comes to negotiations.

“I mean, steps have to be made,” Prescott said Monday. “They’re simple steps. For the most part, obviously you want to get closure and obviously you want to get it done, but the Cowboys probably feel the same way that I do: Nobody wants to take anything that’s not fair to the other.”
