Skip Bayless has an interesting Cowboys theory about the Andy Dalton signing

  Skip Bayless has an interesting Cowboys theory about the Andy Dalton signing If Skip Bayless is right, Andy Dalton could cut into Dak Prescott's playing time in 2020.Skip Bayless is mostly used for entertainment purposes these days at Fox Sports, but he does hold some credibility when it comes to the Cowboys.

The Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott are doing what they can to negotiate a long-term deal. This process takes time. One party submits an offer, the other considers it, there is a counter sent back, round and round we go. Welcome to the way that any negotiation for anything that has ever happened in the history of the world.

Often times when it comes to the NFL, or professional sports as a whole, negotiations can become a bit of a circus with what goes on in the media. As Dak Prescott is the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys there is never any shortage on discussion and this week things really turned in one particular direction.

Jerry Jones focused on building Cowboys around Dak Prescott, not on long-term contract

  Jerry Jones focused on building Cowboys around Dak Prescott, not on long-term contract Dak Prescott doesn’t have a long-term deal with the Dallas Cowboys and he hasn’t signed the franchise tag yet, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t seem concerned about that at all. Jones looked toward the future on Thursday night when he spoke with NFL Network during their schedule release show, saying that he’s focused on building a team around their young quarterback — but failing to recognize the contract-shaped elephant in the room. "I think when I look at the career that Dak has had with the Cowboys, it gives me a really solid feeling about what's in store for us in the future," Jones said, via NFL.com.

There have been no different discussions between Prescott and the Cowboys than what has already happened to this point

We have known the Cowboys and Dak Prescott to be apart on the issue of contract length, there is no news there. Things did get a bit interesting a few weeks ago when Stephen Jones mentioned the issue of salary cap percentage, but even that was pretty general speak for a roster builder.

This week things got particularly weird when Chris Simms reported that Dak Prescott is seeking “north of $45M” on the fifth year of a hypothetical deal if said deal did indeed include a fifth year.

Such a report seemed preposterous, but as the Cowboys and Dak have been apart on the issue of length, it seemed like the latter’s side might have been positioning a way to make that fifth year worth it for the quarterback if this ultimately ended up being the case. Whatever the case was, it wasn’t. Both Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport have refuted Chris Simms’ report.

Joe Theismann Calls Out Dak Prescott Over Contract Negotiations

  Joe Theismann Calls Out Dak Prescott Over Contract Negotiations Anyone who takes even a cursory look at the film will see that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is one of the league's best young quarterbacks and someone that deserves a new long-term contract. Still, Prescott has his dissenters, former Washington Redskins gunslinger Joe Theismann among them. Theismann claimed that he would tell Prescott to "take the money", as he thinks no good can come from digging his heels in and trying to negotiate with Jerry Jones. Joe Theismann: “If I was advising Dak Prescott, I would say, ‘Take the money.''? @1053thefan https://t.co/5K4gIG34vi— RADIO.

This isn’t the first big-time whirlwind that Chris Simms has caused in NFL circles lately as he recently reported that the Seattle Seahawks offered Russell Wilson to the Cleveland Browns for the top selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The issue between Dak and the Cowboys continues to center around time. Dak’s camp wants a four-year deal and the Cowboys want a five-year deal.

That’s it. No more. No less.
