The Dallas Cowboys don't want to let quarterback Dak Prescott test free agency next offseason, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

The Cowboys view Prescott as their quarterback of the future despite having him signed only through 2024, reports Fowler, who adds extension negotiations have been "passive" between the sides.

Prescott's contract also contains a no-tag clause that forbids Dallas from franchise-tagging the signal-caller next year if the club can't reach a new pact with him before then.

Whether the Cowboys extend their franchise quarterback before the 2024 season kicks off has been one of the offseason's hottest topics. A report in March indicated that the NFC East franchise had yet to offer Prescott a contract.

However, team owner Jerry Jones downplayed concerns in April, saying the Cowboys "want Prescott."

The 30-year-old led the NFL in touchdown passes (36) last season while guiding Dallas to a 12-5 record. However, the Cowboys were one-and-done in the postseason with an upset loss to the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card round.
