Cowboys haven't talked with Dak Prescott about a new deal since September

  Cowboys haven't talked with Dak Prescott about a new deal since September Will he or will he not come to terms with the Cowboys on a long-term deal? Cowboys COO Stephen Jones told reporters at the NFL draft scouting combine in Indianapolis on Monday that the Cowboys haven’t had talks with Prescott’s agent Todd France since September. The NFL sent a proposal on a new collective bargaining agreement to the NFLPA last week. A new CBA will set the financial terms of the NFL for the next decade, and the parameters of a deal are still up in the air.The NFLPA plans to address the proposal this week and vote to either ratify or reject the proposed CBA.

With the league eager to reach a collective bargaining agreement with the players in the next few weeks — the current deal runs out in March 2021 — team representatives were summoned to New York to discuss the NFL ’s proposal . Among the items in that proposal

NFL owners have sent a proposal on collective bargaining on to the NFL Players Association, with the hope it will produce a new agreement . Sources quoted by ESPN said the vote wasn’t unanimous but approval of the proposed contract required only a three-fourths vote , which was achieved.

It wasn’t immediately clear which sticking points concerned the members.

The owners approved a deal that would increase player revenue sharing by roughly 1.5 percentage points relative to the owners' piece (approximately $5 billion more for players over the life of the 10-year CBA). A 17-game regular season schedule also was included in the new deal.

Several players have voiced reservations about an extended regular season, but some have acknowledged that concessions would have to be made to get the improvements they sought.

At this time, no date is set for a vote for the 32 player reps. If two-thirds of them approve the new CBA, then the vote will go before the entire player body.

The owners have pushed to get a deal done by the start of the league year on March 18, claiming that such an agreement presents the best chance of avoiding a work stoppage when the current deal expires at the end of the 2020 season. Securing a new deal now gives the NFL greater leverage to negotiate more lucrative broadcast deals this offseason.
