D-Day has arrived.

That’s D for Dallas.

And D for Dak Prescott, their franchise-tagged quarterback.

And they are no closer to an agreement than they were months ago.

The Cowboys made their most recent offer in March, and they’ve done nothing since then to kick-start discussions.

While it’s possible that the Cowboys will make one last push at getting Dak to sign, they’ve done nothing to lay the foundation for whatever it is that they may offer before the clock strike 4:00 p.m. ET today.,

The Cowboys’ latest offer consisted of a five-year deal, with a percentage of guaranteed money too low for a five-year deal. Their options are to increase the guarantee significantly or to cut the offer to four years, the length for which Prescott has been pushing.

Ultimately, the question continues to be whether the Cowboys will offer Prescott enough to get him to trade in the $31.4 million he’s due to make this year, the $37.68 million he’d make under the tag in 2021, and the three-headed monster the Cowboys would face in 2022: Transition tag in excess of $45 million, franchise tag in excess of $54 million, or unrestricted free agency for Dak.
