Dak Prescott, QB | DAL

The Dallas Morning News' Calvin Watkins reports the Cowboys' contract talks with Dak Prescott on Tuesday were “more productive than they have been” in previous months.

With the deadline for the Cowboys to place the franchise tag on Prescott fast approaching, Tuesday's talks were reportedly more productive than discussions in recent months. A "major sticking point," according to Watkins, is that Prescott wants a four year deal while the team prefers a five year contract. Prescott would become a free agent on March 17 if Dallas doesn't use the franchise tag on him -- a scenario that would alter the quarterback landscape for the entire league. The team isn't overly concerned with Prescott's health after the QB had surgery in October to repair a compound fracture and dislocation of the right ankle he suffered after a scorching hot start to the 2020 season. Prescott had a second surgery in December to help strengthen the injured ankle, and should be ready for training camp in July. There's almost no chance the Cowboys let him walk this offseason.

Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot said Kyle Rudolph would be interested in signing with the Browns if the team doesn't retain David Njoku.

Cabot cited a source who said Rudolph -- released by the Vikings on Tuesday -- would be open to reuniting with Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski, who was Minnesota's offensive coordinator in 2019. That year, the lumbering Rudolph caught 39 passes for 367 yards and six touchdowns on 48 targets. Njoku probably won't be back with Cleveland. He's heading into his fifth-year option year at $6.013 million, and since the salary isn't guarantee until the first day of the league year March 17, the Browns can release Njoku with no dead cap space or trade him. Rudolph's addition to Cleveland's roster likely won't affect Austin Hooper's opportunity any more than Njoku or Harrison Bryant did in 2020.

Vikings released TE Kyle Rudolph.

A Viking his entire 10-year career, Rudolph was on the record as not willing to take a pay cut, making this an expected cut. The move clears $5.037 million in cap space, a number that increases to $7.937 million if he is designated as a post-June 1 release. Headed into his age-32 campaign, Rudolph's 28 receptions last season were his fewest since his injury-shortened 2014. He made it clear in a February interview that did not sit well with him. Rudolph's experience and wingspan should draw plenty of interest as a goal-line threat and chain mover. His departure from Minnesota paves the TE2 way for Irv Smith, a third-year pro who could make the leap to TE1 status in 2021.
