Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys reportedly making no progress on contract with deadline looming

  Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys reportedly making no progress on contract with deadline looming The Dallas Cowboys have taken Dak Prescott on a roller coaster ride for the past two years with contract negotiations. With another NFL offseason underway, Jerry Jones and the team’s star quarterback somehow find themselves at the same place they were over a year ago. © Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Dec 29, 2019; Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4) look on from the field before the game against Washington at AT&T Stadium. Last spring, the Cowboys placed the franchise tag on Prescott to buy time as the two sides discussed a long-term contract extension.

We’ve seen a couple of notable NFL quarterbacks get hit with the franchise tag in recent years. Some (like Kirk Cousins) eventually left their teams for a big deal in free agency. Others (like Dak Prescott) were able to agree to terms on a longterm extension with their original clubs.

Could Josh Allen be the next NFL quarterback to get hit with the franchise tag?

The Buffalo Bills star quarterback addressed his contract situation earlier this week.

“When it happens, it happens,” he said on The Ringer’s 10 Questions with Kyle Brandt. “Honestly, I love playing football. I want to listen and be engaged in the contract talks. Ultimately that’s why you pay your agents, and that why you hire a guy like (Bills GM) Brandon Beane and (assistant GM) Joe Schoen, and the front office guys and what they do.”

Woody Allen again denies sexual abuse allegations by Dylan Farrow in previously unaired interview

  Woody Allen again denies sexual abuse allegations by Dylan Farrow in previously unaired interview "I do not believe she's making it up. I don't believe she's lying. I believe she believes that," Allen said."There was no logic on the face of it. Why would a guy who's 57-years-old... I never was accused of anything in my life," the director told Lee Cowan on CBS Sunday Morning in a previously unaired interview currently available to stream on Paramount+.

Allen, though, had a much more blunt comment on the franchise tag.

“I don’t think it’s great for the team, nor the player,” Allen said, via NFL.com. “Again, I need to do more research on it, but if you look at the guys that’ve been tags in the past couple years, as far as the quarterback position goes, it was Dak [Prescott], and Kirk Cousins. And at the end of the day, you could make the case that they should’ve just done the deal the year prior, or a couple years prior. So it is what it is. At the end of the day, whatever happens, happens. It’s not gonna deter me from trying to be the best quarterback for the Bills.”

It will certainly be interesting to see how the Bills approach the situation with Allen. He’s coming off a career season and is line to get paid.
