How ‘Nonexistent’ Dak Prescott Talks Impact Cowboys’ CeeDee Lamb Negotiations

If quarterback Dak Prescott‘s next contract is the first domino to fall, it might be a while before the Dallas Cowboys are able to sign prolific wide receiver CeeDee Lamb to a new deal.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, there hasn’t been any progress — or any substantive talks on an extension that lowers Prescott’s $61 million cap number for the 2024 season which in turn makes it difficult to negotiate with the likes of Lamb, All-Pro linebacker Micah Parsons, and the Cowboys’ other star players.

“But their negotiations so far with Dak have been described to me a passive or even nonexistent,” Fowler said during a Sunday appearance on ESPN’s SportsCenter. “There really hasn’t been anything going on, so their actions are saying that maybe if they have to sit on his $61 million cap hit this year then figure it out later then they’ll do that. They’ve been fiscally responsible not really spending any money, so they know they have to address this at some point in the offseason.”

The Cowboys and Prescott previously mutually agreed that the quarterback would play out the final year of his contract this upcoming season, but, Lamb remains very much in limbo.
