Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman believes there's no question the franchise will resolve its contract situation with Dak Prescott.

The two sides have failed to reach a deal on a long-term contract and Prescott has yet to sign the exclusive franchise tag the Cowboys placed on him in March.

"They will pay him, he's going to make a lot of money, and I think he's going to be the quarterback for the Cowboys for a long, long time, and continue to have a great career," Aikman said to Mike Fisher of CowboyMaven.

Though the stalled negotiations have been a topic of conversation since the close of the 2019 season, Aikman said there's no reason to worry about Prescott's future with the star on his helmet.

"I've been surprised that there has been so much discussion about his contract," Aikman said. "It's not like he's not going to be playing for the Cowboys in 2020. Whether he is franchised or he has a deal, he's going to be here playing, and eventually, a deal gets done."
