As Schefter tweeted, the Cowboys and Prescott have until July 15 to work out a long-term contract. The 2 sides have been far apart in negotiations thus far, it seems, so we’ll see if anything happens.
For now, though, it appears Prescott is close to having a deal in place to get to work with his teammates for this fall.
