🏈Cowboys: We knew the weeks leading up to NFL free agency would bring even more drama in the Dak Prescott contract negotiations, but who knew the two parties would be at odds when it came to this unprecedented weather emergency? (Spoiler alert: we all could’ve guessed.)

  • While Cowboys owner Jerry Jones celebrated hitting the “jackpot” thanks to surging gas prices, Dak was stepping up to help, donating meals to help feed homeless individuals impacted by the storm. That’s our quarterback.
  • Given this moral divide, it’s no wonder both sides have yet to agree to a long-term contract extension. Thankfully the drama will come to a close by March 9th at the latest, when the Cowboys will apply the franchise tag to Prescott if they have yet to sign him.

🏒🏀What to watch: Both the Stars and Mavericks will be back in action tonight, with the Stars taking on the Florida Panthers at 7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT and the Mavs tipping off against the Memphis Grizzlies at 8:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. CT.

And a special shoutout to the Mavs’ Luka Doncic. Not only was he named a starter for the upcoming NBA All-Star game, but Doncic also led off the court, joining Mavs owner Mark Cuban to donate over $1 million to the city’s winter storm relief fund.
