Quarterback contracts are getting quite large in today's National Football League. The top of the market has been set at $55 million and it's only going to get higher over the course of time. That's the nature of the salary cap era, especially after the over $30 million increase from the 2023 season.

The Dallas Cowboys are in an interesting position with their quarterback Dak Prescott. There is just one season left on his contract with a $55 million cap hit in 2024, but there is a $41 million dead cap hit in 2025. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that there is "no indication a deal is coming."

Just on Sunday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was quoted saying that Prescott is one of the quarterbacks who can win a Super Bowl.

The Cowboys seemingly waiting to even talk about an extension for Prescott throws up an alarm across the league. Are the Cowboys going to keep Prescott long-term or will they end up trying to move on from him after the season? Time will give us that answer but not even discussing an extension is a red flag.
