Jones Leaves Door Open for Amari Cooper, Dak Prescott Signings During Season

Katherine Ross

Jerry Jones has Ezekiel Elliott wrapped up with a nice new $100 million contract, fellow stars Amari Cooper and Dak Prescott might not have to wait until after the season to get their own deals done.

Different NFL owners negotiate with star players differently.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been abnormally vocal during this summer’s very public negotiations with his top three stars. That strategy had resulted in plenty of headlines with little headway in terms of progress on the contracts until Wednesday when news broke that the company had agreed to a 6-year extension with star running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Jones told TheStreet that he has no problem with extending contract negotiations with quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper into the season, leaving the door open for an in-season signing for the two prow bowlers. However, Jones did warn that the pie is only getting smaller the longer those two stars wait to sign their offers.

“Well it is possible to get it done during the season. Obviously, you have a pie, and every time pieces go out of that pie you get a little more challenged to get everybody a piece of pie. But we have the ability to get that done. It could get done,” Jones said.

Dak's getting paid. I'm not convinced Cooper is yet

Dak will be overpaid but we already knew that.

It'll be interesting to see how they navigate the cap, but these teams always seem to find a way to get these types of deals done.
