There's got to be a dream ending to the Dak Prescott and Jerry Jones contract talks, right? For what feels like years now, the two sides have had a back-and-forth regarding a monster new deal.

Since the Cowboys decided to place the franchise tag on No. 4, after agreeing to terms with Amari Cooper, fans out there have feared there could be drama developing.

That's doesn't look to be the case, as Ian Rapoport reports the two sides are talking once again, and there's no hurry to put the pen to paper.

From our chair, this is the best news possible for everyone worried Dak is holding some sort of a grudge against the team. Per Rapoport's sources, the parties are taking their sweet time and don't want to rush their discussions.

Prescott is looking to be paid as one of the top signal callers in the league. Reports have surfaced stating he's hoping to get around $40 million per year, and rumors of $35 million for four or five years floated to the top of the pile on Wednesday.

In today's market, quarterbacks are getting insane contracts. Will Jones give in to Prescott's demands?

Despite the Cowboys missing the playoffs last season, Prescott impressed. He finished the year throwing for 4,902 yards (second in the league) and 30 touchdowns. He's going to get paid sooner or later. We just have to wait and see how much Jones puts on the table.
