Quarterback Dak Prescott didn't get a contract extension from the Dallas Cowboys this offseason, but that hasn't changed his plan to remain with the franchise.

Prescott believes he'll retire as a member of the Cowboys and he doesn't want his contract dispute to impact the team's locker room.

"Business is business, and once I'm in the locker room and part of what’s going on now, I don't focus too much about the future," Prescott said Wednesday, according to Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk. "It's more about today.

"With that being said, I'm excited to be a Dallas Cowboy. I've been a fan of this organization. I've been a fan of this program for years. I love every bit of the opportunity and the platform that I get to be the quarterback here. I love this team. I'm excited about what we can do and accomplish this year. No frustration as far as that. Once again, I believe something will get done, and I also believe I'll be a Dallas Cowboy for the rest of my career."

Prescott is set to play the 2020 season under the franchise tag after the Cowboys failed to sign him to a long-term extension this offseason. Both parties can re-start negotiations after the upcoming campaign.

"We think he's outstanding," owner Jerry Jones said about Prescott. "We think he's our quarterback of the future. We just couldn't get together at this particular time."

Dallas' latest offer to the 26-year-old reportedly included $33 million to $35 million annually with more than $100 million guaranteed.

Prescott is coming off the best statistical campaign of his career after setting personal highs in passing yards (4,902) and touchdowns (30) in 2019. However, the Cowboys posted an 8-8 record last season, their worst campaign since Prescott took over the starting role in 2016.
