  Will Dallas Cowboys offense be Mike McCarthy’s or Kellen Moore’s? McCarthy explains Mike McCarthy told reporters that the Dallas Cowboys offense will build off what had been established with offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.McCarthy, who has called plays for most of his career, even anticipates Moore handling that responsibility.“I’m confident that Kellen can still be the play caller,” McCarthy said. “That’s the path we’re going down. We’re still working through that, but my goal is for him to be the play caller.”The freedom further speaks to the belief McCarthy has expressed in Moore.

It appears Prescott is now done playing nice. The impending free agent laid into the Cowboys on Thursday over the contract negotiations, seemingly calling the team out in the process.

“You would hope and you would think something is going to get done, right,” Prescott said Thursday, via David Moore of Dallas News. “I mean, you would have thought something would have gotten done before the season. In my brain, it only says that it gets done. Without the tag.”

Kevin Love: I'd be happy to stay with Cavs through deadline

  Kevin Love: I'd be happy to stay with Cavs through deadline Reports this winter have repeatedly suggested that Kevin Love would like to be traded to a contender, and it’s still possible the Cavaliers will find a deal in the next couple weeks. However, sources tell Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com that Love’s value may be higher during the offseason when it won’t be quite so tricky to move a player with his cap hit.© David Richard-USA TODAY SportsIf that’s the case, Love may end up remaining in Cleveland for at least the rest of the 2019-20 season. And he insisted on Thursday that he wouldn’t have a problem with that. “I will be happy if I’m still here,” Love said, per Fedor.

This is the issue. Dallas holds the right to place the dreaded franchise tag on Prescott. That value is expected to come in at about $27 million, much less guaranteed cash than what he would earn on a long-term deal.

”I don’t think any of that is necessary,” Prescott continued. “But that’s business. That’s all calculated. That’s all on them.”

It’s obvious Prescott is placing the ball in Dallas’ court heading into the offseason. And while the Cowboys’ brass remains confident, these negotiations started long before Week 1 of the 2019 season.

When asked if he planned on working out at The Star in Dallas this offseason without a long-term deal, Prescott did not mince words in saying he’d be absent. “Report that,” Prescott uttered. “Be sure to report that.”

Cowboys' Smith has not heard back from McCarthy

Smith said he was looking forward to working with McCarthy but has not yet heard back from the coach.Had Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith on today's podcast. We talked about his time at Notre Dame and why the Irish *will* win a national championship soon. Also, he had some VERY interesting comments on Mike McCarthy.

Things seem to be growing contentious on this front. Cooler sides could prevail with a deal ahead of free agency in March. At this point, that does not look to be in the cards.

The New England Patriots would like to sign Tom Brady to a new contract before the start of free agency if the quarterback is planning to return, but the two sides apparently have not sat down at the negotiating table yet. © David Butler II-USA TODAY SportsBrady and the Patriots have not yet engaged in contract talks, ESPN’s Mike Reiss reports. However, Reiss notes that the lack of negotiations is consistent with the typical flow of an offseason for an NFL team, as coaches are typically scouting college players and preparing for the NFL Scouting Combine at this time of year.
