Cowboys reportedly find a Dak Prescott and Russell Wilson trade scenario “laughable”

Cowboys reportedly find a Dak Prescott and Russell Wilson trade scenario “laughable”

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports More cold water for this idea with Dak Prescott and Russell Wilson. Any thought of the Dallas Cowboys and the Seattle Seahawks pulling off a swap of their quarterbacks, Dak Prescott and Russell Wilson, has always seemed a bit farfetched. Many different things would have to fall into place, but the biggest of all would be the Cowboys actually getting Prescott to sign the franchise tag and agreeing to a trade. Perhaps more than that, though, is that the Cowboys are committed to the younger Prescott and would like to just get a long-term deal...

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...

Cowboys 2021 NFL mock draft tracker: Three different offensive tackles show up this week

Cowboys 2021 NFL mock draft tracker: Three different offensive tackles show up this week

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Our weekly check on the Cowboys mock draft picks. Cowboys mock drafts have been holding relatively stable over the last few weeks. In general, there is a group of mocks that center around cornerback, specifically either Patrick Surtain or Caleb Farley. Then you have the more wild card mocks, but one of the common positions that get mocked to the Cowboys outside of cornerback is offensive tackle. With the Cowboys offensive line having its struggles with injury last season, and with tackle Tyron Smith missing time regularly over the last four...

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

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...

Finally time for the Cowboys to invest in a special teams ace in the return game

Finally time for the Cowboys to invest in a special teams ace in the return game

Photo by Harry How/ The Cowboys need an upgrade and the kick and punt returner. Last season the Dallas Cowboys special teams unit on paper ranked 14th overall in the NFL. Looking at the kick return yardage they ranked sixth in the NFL with an average of 26.1 yards per return and a total of 965 yards and one touchdown from CeeDee Lamb while ranking 14th in punt return yardage, averaging 9.1 yards per return and a total of 265 yards according to Lineups.com. On paper this is pretty good, but when you factor in the fumbles and poor decision-making by kick returner Tony...

It’s always entertaining to run through the simulator and see how things may play out when the draft comes around in April. For this mock draft we used The Draft Network’s simulator which should hopefully keep things realistic. Let us know your thoughts about the picks in the comment sections at the end of the article.

Film room: Why these 3 Cowboys players will be the most improved in 2021 - John Owning, Dallas Morning News It’s time to improooooooove. Projecting improvement for Randy Gregory is tricky because of how incredibly efficient he already was in 2020, as he finished ninth in pass rush productivity rating (8.5) — a metric that measures pressure created on a per snap basis with weighting toward sacks — and run-stop rate (9.8%) among edge defenders. So even if Gregory does...

With no real NFL Draft Combine in 2021, these dates take on an out-sized importance for draft prospects

With no real NFL Draft Combine in 2021, these dates take on an out-sized importance for draft prospects

Photo credit should read ROMAIN LAFABREGUE/AFP via Mark these dates down for Cowboys prospects in the 2021 draft. The 2021 draft will be missing one big thing. Not the actual draft, but the run up to the draft will be without the regular NFL Combine. COVID-19 has taken way one of the big spectacles of the draft season when all the prospects gather in Indianapolis to get prodded and poked, analyzed, and then perform drills for the masses. There will actually be mini-Combines, but they will involve a smaller number of players getting medical-only evaluations with no...

The Cowboys need improvement at defensive tackle, but maybe that could come from within

The Cowboys need improvement at defensive tackle, but maybe that could come from within

Photo by Andrew Dieb/Icon Sportswire via Maybe a couple of young guys will make a leap for the Cowboys in the interior. One of the most referenced concerns for the Cowboys heading into the 2021 season is the run defense. The Dallas defense was poor all around last year, but the run defense was especially bad. The team was ranked as the second-worst in the league after giving up 158 yards per game on the season. The Cleveland Browns actually put up over 300 yards rushing on Dallas, an astronomical number. Part of the problem was the change in scheme and coaching. For a...

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...

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...
