Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said he remains confident the franchise can complete a long-term deal with quarterback Dak Prescott, Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Jones spoke to the Cowboys website on Thursday and revealed while Prescott would like a shorter contract and the team desires a longer one, a deal can be made eventually.

“Certainly we have nothing but respect for Dak and his representation (agent Todd France) in terms of what they’re trying to get out of a deal,” Jones said in his first comments this summer about Prescott’s failed contract talks. “They certainly want a shorter deal. Historically we have wanted longer deals because it’s more cap friendly and we’re able to spread some things out (and) keep some players, which at the end of the day, and Dak understands this, that’s what we’re trying to do here.”

“We made a lot of progress,” Jones said. “We have to continue to make progress in terms of these types of negotiations. We’ve never had one quite like it. It’s certainly very interesting times when you look what’s going on with having to sit down with the union and negotiate what goes on with the virus when the revenues aren’t where they should be, so we had some challenges. It wasn’t exactly normal times.”
