Dak Prescott’s brother is not happy how the Cowboys handled his contract negotiations.
Dak Prescott will be playing the 2020 season under the franchise tag after he and the Dallas Cowboys couldn’t agree on a contract extension. That makes things a lot more interesting for both sides and it also cost the Cowboys a fan.
Prescott’s brother, Tad Prescott, tweeted this out on Wednesday after his brother was not given an extension ahead of the deadline.
Clearly the Prescott family is frustrated with the lack of traction on Dak’s contract situation and now there’s a really good chance the former fourth round pick is playing elsewhere after this year. It’s tough to come back from something like this, just ask Kirk Cousins and Washington. That didn’t end up being a very good situation and it’ll likely be a similar situation for Prescott and the Cowboys.
The Cowboys will have to work out an extension or tag Dak again next year.
Prescott was an immediate success as a rookie when he took over for an injured Tony Romo and helped lead the Cowboys to a 13-3 record and No. 1 seed in the NFC during his rookie season.
This past year was Prescott’s best yet, throwing for more than 4,900 yards and 30 touchdowns. In his three previous years, he hadn’t come close to passing for over 4,000 yards and the most touchdowns he passed for was 23.
Prescott wasn’t as good with his legs in 2020, but he made up for it with his arm. This isn’t a bad thing by any means because when you look at quarterbacks who run more frequently, their careers tend to be much shorter.
When it comes down to it, Prescott has been a terrific quarterback during his four years in the league and it’s very understandable for his brother and the rest of his family to be ticked off. If he wasn’t given a nice contract for his efforts last year, then what would it take to extend him?
It sounds like if Prescott’s brother has things his way, this will be the last year his brother is in a Cowboys uniform.
