Are the Dallas Cowboys justified in wanting to extend Dak Prescott?


Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones recently expressed that the franchise “absolutely” wants to sign quarterback Dak Prescott, who’s entering the final season of a four-year, $160 million deal, to a long-term deal.
