Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones continues to believe that Dak Prescott is the quarterback who can put an end to the team’s prolonged title drought, dating back to January 28, 1996 when they defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX.
“We’re relying on him, and I feel very good about that,” Jones said. “His readiness, presence, and how the team reacts to him. He will get us there.”
Jones believes if Dallas would have defeated the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC divisional round last year, they would have won the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Prescott has only 2-4 in six postseason games, so some may question if he can lead the Cowboys to victory. The two-time Pro Bowler told King he thinks “a thousand percent” about his postseason record: Jones will soon be required to back up his claims against Prescott by doing so.
In 2025, the 30-year-old is slated to become a free agent. Even if he doesn’t earn the most in the league as a quarterback, market forces indicate he’ll probably see an increase in his $40 million average yearly compensation.
Jones may have to reevaluate if keeping the same quarterback is the best move if Dallas suffers another postseason disappointment in 2023, but are there any better options at QB on the market? We will see.
