With two different deadlines on the calendar, where does the leverage lie in the Dak contract negotiations?
Here we sit a week past Valentine’s Day and Jerry Jones has yet to ask his beloved franchise quarterback Dak Prescott to “Be Mine.” The relationship between the owner of the Dallas Cowboys and his young quarterback continues to be burdened by the strain of unsuccessful contract negotiations that started 20 months ago. In fact, the two quarterbacks that did get monstrous extensions back then have since been dealt away by the team that extended him.
Both Carson Wentz & Jared Goff got multiyear $100+ million contract extensions in the offseason of 2019. Isn't it odd that the QB who should've been extended then is the only one that didn't? pic.twitter.com/SOOb2hnlzO

Even more odd is that it is Dak Prescott’s game that has been taken to the next level as he’s has been the league’s top passer (in terms of yards per game) since then.
