The Dallas Cowboys are likely to use its franchise tag on quarterback Dak Prescott since the two sides are struggling to reach a long-term deal, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Neither the Cowboys nor Prescott want the tag to be used, but a source told Schefter “it looks inevitable.”
Prescott is set to become an unrestricted free agent next month. However, if a contract isn’t settled on by March 10, the Cowboys can apply the franchise tag and keep him from reaching the market.
While attending Super Bowl media events in Miami this week, Prescott wouldn’t say if he’d participate in Dallas’s voluntary offseason program if the tag is applied.
