FRISCO – The Dallas Cowboys, promises Dak Prescott, are about to make their money worthwhile. In fact, if there was any reason why “America’s Team” needed to collect today, QB says it could pay in a game now.
“I’m close,” said Prescott on Tuesday. “I can go play a game now and be very, very successful. So there is no doubt that when I need to be successful, when I need to do the things that are necessary to be on the pitch, I will do just that and the time will be right.”
We demonstrated the success of Prescott’s rehabilitation in a series of training videos that corroborate our February 24 report, with sources telling us that being “100 percent” recovered at the end of April and being a “total participant” in training outside of season were likely.
And now here we are.
While Prescott was recovering during this off-season, he and Dallas finally agreed to a massive $ 160 million contract that locks him up until the 2024 season, making him the highest-paid Cowboy of all time and the second-best quarterback. paid in league history.
A healthy Prescott? The Cowboys have convinced themselves – after two years of negotiations – that it is worth it. Perhaps the fact that QB’s exit from injury caused the team to hobble to a record 6-10 in 2020 was also a driving force.
Team owner Jones said in a recent podium presser here at The Star: “If anyone has already taken advantage of me financially, I am proud to be the one sitting next to me on the right.”
Prescott’s impulse is a part of the story; he’s an ex-fourth round pick who’s done well. And so is his resume, as he has the most passing yards (17,634) and passing touchdowns (106), as well as the highest passer rating (97.3), of any Dallas quarterback in his first five seasons with the team.
Prescott – who spent part of Tuesday doing charity work in conjunction with Walk-On restaurants – has a 43-29 record as Dallas starter, including playoffs.
In 2021, the Dallas Cowboys need him to build this – although not today, as much as Dak insists he could do that, if necessary.
