Dak Prescott appears to be on the path to recovery

Dak Prescott appears to be on the path to recovery

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports The latest health update on Dak Prescott. It has been a very long time since we saw Dak Prescott play football for the Dallas Cowboys. Week 5 of the 2020 season feels like so long ago. Since then we have seen Andy Dalton, Ben DiNucci, and Garrett Gilbert all command what many thought would be one of the best offenses in the National Football League. At times it was alright, other moments were worth forgetting. The status of Dak Prescott has been one of great intrigue this offseason as it is the third in a row in which he and the Cowboys can...

Cowboys news: Quarterbacks are starting to exert their power in the NFL unlike they have previously

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ The Cowboys news... just for you. How the NBA is affecting the NFL QB market, what it means for Dak Prescott and the Cowboys - Calvin Watkins, DMN Are the quarterbacks ushering in a new era of “player power” in the NFL? So if you thought LeBron James, James Harden and Kawhi Leonard asserted power in the NBA with player movement, welcome to the NFL’s version with quarterbacks. “The NBA has a tradition of superstars planning their next stops through their own volition,” said agent Leigh Steinberg, who represents Kansas City...

The Cowboys, Dak Prescott, and the winter of quarterback discontent

Things are strange in a lot of NFL cities. | Photo by Mitchell Leff/ It is an unprecedented year for quarterback drama in the league. It is not at all unusual to have an NFL team and their star player in hard negotiations over a new contract. There have certainly been times when a player has wanted to escape their current team. Trades are just another tool that are used to adjust rosters. Even the idea of using one to unload a player and the onerous cap burden he carries is not unprecedented. But to have all these things happening at once with multiple franchise...

In a hypothetical Dak Prescott vs. Russell Wilson debate for Cowboys QB, who ya got?

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Only one man can lead Cowboys nation next season. Which would you prefer? The Dallas Cowboys have certainly ingratiated themselves into a whirlwind of drama surrounding their primary signal-caller. Or – perhaps they haven’t. Perhaps the team has all of its figurative ducks in a row, and is just lying in wait for the right moment to pounce on their opportunity to ink pen to paper with Dak Prescott. Their current negation situation could be just that: Dallas – like a thief in the night, like a predator disguised in brush – may know all...

Deciding which of the Cowboys offensive free agents should return in 2021

Deciding which of the Cowboys offensive free agents should return in 2021

Jumbo Joe is an overlooked decision for Dallas. | Photo by Jim McIsaac/ It’s about more than just Dak for the Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys have a lot on their plate. While the NFL Draft is drawing a lot of attention already, they first have to navigate free agency. Most of the attention is on outside prospects for the team to sign, and of course that elephant in the room regarding their quarterback. But Dak Prescott is not the only one of their roster from last year to consider. Most of the decisions in that area are on the defense, but they have some calls they need...

Cowboys may have more leverage in the Dak Prescott negotiations than they are letting on

Photo by Joe Robbins/ Can Jerry Jones get a deal done this time? If you’re Jerry Jones, one thing you’ve got going for you, apart from the yacht, is tons of unsolicited advice you’re going to get on almost every topic imaginable, from the color of your team’s gameday pants all the way through what, if anything, you should pay your quarterback. Last week, ESPN’s Todd Archer proposed a face-saving contract compromise for Dak Prescott and Cowboys. Archer’s proposal gave both sides a bit of what they want: cap flexibility for the Cowboys, and an out for...

Cowboys 2021 free agents on defense represent an interesting question

Cowboys 2021 free agents on defense represent an interesting question

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Defense is at the center of conversation this offseason. Outside of reaching a long-term agreement with quarterback Dak Prescott, improving their defense is one of the Cowboys’ top priorities this offseason. Last season, even after losing their star quarterback, the Cowboys were held back by the pure incompetence of their defense. The Cowboys ranked near the bottom of the league in almost every defensive category. Their 29.6 points per game given up (fifth-worst) and 158.8 rushing yards per game (second-worst) were both very alarming...

Report: Jaylon Smith not among those who Dallas Cowboys are considering cutting to clear cap space

Photo by Abbie Parr/ Rumors are starting to trickle out about possible Cowboys roster moves. We have spoken a couple of times since this past weekend about how things should be happening in a predictably busy fashion for the Dallas Cowboys sometime soon. The Cowboys are readying to pay Dak Prescott, either by way of a long-term contract extension or the franchise tag. Somehow, some way, they are going to need to figure something out with Prescott. It is for this reason that we have been forecasting the restructuring of contracts and possible cap casualties for the...

Cowboys 2021 free agent battles: Blake Bell versus Noah Brown

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports Which receiver/blocker would you keep for the Cowboys? Yes, the Cowboys have plenty of important free agents in the 2021 offseason. The biggest is, of course, Dak Prescott. On defense they have some higher-profile guys like Aldon Smith, Chidobe Awuzie and Xavier Woods to make decisions on. But let’s take a look at some of the lower-tier free agents that could or could not return to Dallas. Specifically, we’ll look at two offensive players who technically play different positions, but serve the team in a similar way. Noah Brown is a...

Breaking down what it will take - Joel Corry, CBSSports.com Can the Cowboys finally get a deal done with their star quarterback? If so, here's what a potential deal could look like. Contract Length: The biggest sticking point in last year’s negotiations was length of contract. The Cowboys were insistent on a five year deal while Prescott only wanted to sign for four years. If representing Prescott, I would be adamant about only signing a three-year...

It will be interesting to see what they do and don’t do with some player contracts, and Jaylon Smith is just one to watch. | Photo by Elsa/ A bunch of personnel moves and contract activity are coming in the NFL, and likely for the Cowboys. The Dak Prescott negotiations, or the lack thereof, has sucked the air out of the room for the Dallas Cowboys. It’s the main thing people are discussing. It is rather logical, of course, because what happens there has such an effect on everything else. Still, there is the whole rest of the team to think about. One thing that is...

NFL teams reportedly believe it will take at least three first-round picks to acquire Russell Wilson

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Would you be willing to pay that? As we approach the end of February it is difficult to predict exactly how things are going to end up for the Dallas Cowboys at the quarterback position. The most obvious answer seems to be that the Cowboys would retain Dak Prescott which would involve coming to terms with him on a long-term contract. Considering that 2021 is the third offseason in a row in which the team and quarterback are attempting to find a middle ground, it is hardly a slam-dunk guarantee. Tuesday marks the opening of the window for NFL...

Two deadlines, two different situations: Examining who has leverage in the Dak Prescott contract saga

Photo by Tom Pennington/ With two different deadlines on the calendar, where does the leverage lie in the Dak contract negotiations? Here we sit a week past Valentine’s Day and Jerry Jones has yet to ask his beloved franchise quarterback Dak Prescott to “Be Mine.” The relationship between the owner of the Dallas Cowboys and his young quarterback continues to be burdened by the strain of unsuccessful contract negotiations that started 20 months ago. In fact, the two quarterbacks that did get monstrous extensions back then have since been dealt away by the team that...
