The Cowboys are in a tricky spot as the franchise tag deadline and 2020 NFL free agency approach, which means Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper, a couple weeks away from hitting the open market, still doesn’t know whether he’ll remain in Dallas this season and beyond.
Dallas’ priority, rightfully, is 26-year-old quarterback Dak Prescott, who also is set to hit unrestricted free agency in the absence of a contract extension or a tag.
But Prescott has the leverage in contract negotiations with the team, which is bad news for Cooper.
One of two things will happen with Prescott before the March 12 deadline for teams to tag players: Either the Cowboys and the QB will reach an agreement on a contract extension, or the team will franchise tag him, likely with an exclusive tender.
Now reports have the Cowboys offering Dak a new deal with a guarantee of over 100 Million.
