The Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott have been hearing the talks on a new contract for months now. Prescott is heading into the last year of his current deal and is looking to cash in on a new contract.

As of right now, it doesn't look like the Cowboys are ready to dish out major money to Prescott. They also have CeeDee Lamb and Micah Parsons up for major extensions, who will be looking to be among the highest paid at their position.

Regardless, no position is more important than quarterback but Prescott is just taking things one day at a time.

Cowboys News: Dak Prescott Is Just Focused on 2024

Prescott was asked at an event on April 19 if his deal needs to be done prior to the start of the season and said, "If the talks begin and, and real talks get to happen, sure we can talk about getting that done. But in this case, right now honestly, I'm worried about just getting better, being better tomorrow than I am at this moment. So leaving that up to my agent and Jerry at this point, and when those talks begin, I'll be more involved obviously."

The three-time Pro Bowler is also content with playing the season on the final year of his deal and banking on himself. But he understands that means he could be playing his last year in Dallas.

"I love this game, love to play, and love to better myself as a player and my teammates around me. Right now it's with the Dallas Cowboys. This is where I want to be, and that's where I am. That's the focus. After the season, we'll see where we're at and if the future holds that [staying with the Cowboys long term]. If not, we'll go from there."
