DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is eligible for a new deal after the 2018 season, and the team says they've been preparing for it.

"Yeah, you know at that position, it kind of is what it is," Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told reporters, including 105.3 The Fan, at the team's annual golf tournament. “You kind of, when the time comes, (expect to pay him). I know Dak is going to have a good year this year. I hope it’s up there. It’s going to be as he deserves. He was a fourth-round pick. No one deserves to get paid fairly more than he does. We all see what some of the other guys are who aren’t Aaron Rodgers, who aren’t Matt Ryan (get paid). He’s going to do well. We certainly know that’s going to happen. We’ve got that planned in our budgeting for the salary cap.

“I just want Dak to go out and be MVP this year of the NFL. That’s what I want. Then, we’ll deal with that.”

Prescott, selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft, is earning a base salary of $630,000 in 2018.
