The Future of Dak Prescott


   Five-year starter Dak Prescott suffered a season-ending ankle injury on October 11th. Dak Prescott is the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. He played college football for Mississippi State University and was selected by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft. Before the injury, he started every game of his career.

   In his rookie season, he took the spot of Tony Romo in the preseason. He set several rookie records and was named NFL offensive rookie of the year, and also earned a pro bowl selection. His career passer rating of 97.3 currently ranks fourth all-time.

   Before the start of the 2020 NFL season, the Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott were back in fourth on finalizing a contract. He entered the 2020 season with a $31.4 million dollar franchise tag, which is a one year deal. The organization and Dak Prescott will revisit contract talks at the end of the regular season.

   There are a lot of questions surrounding the future of Dak Prescott since this season-ending injury. Everyone wants to know if Dak will fully recover from his injury and play at the same level he has played in the past.

   With the Cowboy’s season continuing to get worse and worse, a high draft pick is very likely. The question still remains whether Dak Prescott is worth a long time contract.
