DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Per a report from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, extension talks between the Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott have stalled, and a deal is no longer close.

The Sunday morning report comes just one week after Jerry Jones told the media a deal was 'immiment' following the Cowboys 35-17 blowout win over the New York Giants. 

"My understanding is these Dak Prescott extension talks which Jerry Jones termed imminent just a week ago have reached a little bit of an impasse," Rapoport said on NFL Network. "It doesn't seem like things will happen for the foreseeable future. Obviously that could change but that is the read right now."

Prescott has been in talks for an extension for quite some time now, but with the market being constantly reset for a starting quarterback, the two sides had yet to come to a deal. 

Now there seems to be a new issue, however, with the Cowboys reportedly wanting to cement Prescott for a longer-term deal, while Prescott is said to desire a shorter-term in the vein of Jared Goff or Carson Wentz. 

"The Cowboys have signed a lot of their key players to really long-term deals," Rapoport said. "Zeke Elliott the latest all their offensive lineman are on long long-term deals. But then look at the recent deals quarterbacks have done. Four-year extension for (Rams QB) Jared Goff. Four-year extension for (Eagles QB) Carson Wentz. It would make a lot of sense if Dak is holding out for some of those shorter-term deals to cash in at a sooner time."

The Cowboys take the field for their second game of the regular season on Sunday afternoon against the Washington Redskins looking to move to 2-0 on the regular season.
