Summary

Dak Prescott enters his fourth season with the opportunity to secure a massive contract extension that guarantees he'll be the Cowboys' starter for much of his career. To justify that extension, he'll have to answer questions that have lingered since his surprisingly effective rookie season. Prescott was a marvel as a rookie in 2016 but regressed in 2017. 2018 was supposed to be the tiebreaker, but in many ways, it left his doubters and fans with fuel for their side of the debate. Prescott struggled mightily through the first seven games and looked lost. He averaged 180 passing yards and threw eight touchdowns and four interceptions. Just as things looked dismal, Jerry Jones traded for Amari Cooper and the Cowboys' season, along with Prescott's performance, changed on a dime. Once Cooper joined the lineup, Prescott had a 71% completion rate, averaged 250 yards per game, and threw 14 touchdowns in nine games. Pro-rating his totals with Cooper equates to a 4,010-yard, 25-touchdown, seven interception season. Optimism abounds entering 2019 thanks to promising reports on All-Pro center Travis Frederick, and the benefits of having Cooper participate in a full offseason. Finally, the team promoted quarterbacks coach Kellen Moore to offensive coordinator, in the hopes of invigorating a stagnant playbook. (May 2)

Cowboys | Dak Prescott not looking for team-friendly deal (Sat Jul 13, 11:58 AM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott doesn't plan to give his team a hometown discount when it comes to negotiating a contract extension. He is entering the final season of his current contract but no deal appears to be imminent.

Our View: Prescott doesn't need to settle for a hometown discount. He may not be the best quarterback in the league, but in the QB-desperate NFL Prescott will demand a premium price...and he'll get it. We could see Prescott get a deal that pays him nearly $30 million annually.
