Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott says there have been back-and-forth "conversations" about a contract extension, he told The Athletic's Jon Machota on Tuesday.

Prescott added that he is staying uninvolved and leaving contract talks to his agent.

The Cowboys reportedly aim to re-sign Prescott, who will be a free agent after the 2024 season, but contract discussions between the two sides are rumored to be "passive."

The 30-year-old also indicated that he plans to present for the start of training camp later this month.

"Day one of training camp, my mind flips to helping my team and doing everything I can within the organization and on the football field to make sure I'm my best and everyone around me is their best," Prescott said. "The money and all that will take care of itself as it always has."

Prescott made headlines last week when he was spotted in a walking boot due to an issue in the same ankle he fractured in 2020. He said that it was only precautionary and that he put on the boot because he wanted to protect his ankle on a fishing trip after feeling "a little sore" following workouts.

"Literally, it's absolutely nothing," Prescott said. "People are reaching, trying to make things that they aren't. I'm getting older, have to take care of my body, have to be smart. If I can take precautions in lessening something by putting on a boot, I'm going to do it. Sorry that it caused such a whirlwind."

Prescott is set to enter his ninth season as the Cowboys' starting quarterback.
