One way or another, Dak Prescott will be getting a new contract following the 2024 season at the latest, whether it’s with the Dallas Cowboys or elsewhere. But as he considers his future, it doesn’t sound like whatever decisions he makes will be primarily motivated by money.

During a recent press conference, Dak Prescott had a pretty clear message for the Cowboys about where his focus is regarding his contract, declaring that he isn’t worried about money when it comes to his career.

“I don’t play for money. Never have and never cared, to be honest with you,” Prescott said according to Patrik Walker of the Dallas Cowboys team website. “I would give it up to just play this game. I’ll leave that to the business people to say what it’s worth and what they’re supposed to give a quarterback of my play, a person of my play and a leader of my [caliber]. I’ll control what I can control, and the rest will take care of itself.”

Prescott is heading into the final year of his contract with the Dallas Cowboys. If he does not sign a new deal with the team, he will then become a free agent next offseason. He knows that, but right now that’s not where his focus is.

“Business is business,” Prescott said. “Right now, it’s about being my best for this team in this moment — OTAs and helping these guys out. I’m focused on that. I know my business will take care of itself. Been in it before. I’m experienced. Just controlling what I can control.”
