Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has said once again that he would like to remain a Cowboy for the rest of his career. Prescott, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft, has been the team's starting quarterback ever since but this offseason the two sides failed to reach a long-term deal after months of negotiating.
The two-time Pro Bowl quarterback is set to make $31.4 million under the one-year franchise tender and he and the team can revisit a long-term in the next offseason. The Cowboys started the last season with three wins and zero losses but then their form dropped significantly and the team missed out on the playoffs.
Prescott hopes to have a big 2020 season and remains optimistic that he and the Cowboys will eventually agree on an extension. "I’m very optimistic,” Prescott said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, per Pro Football Talk.
“That’s business, and there’s all kind of avenues in business of why it might not get worked out. I’m very confident that I’ll be a Cowboy, and as I’ve said before, I plan to be a Cowboy for the rest of my career.
So there’s no worries when it goes into that. There’s no thoughts that I allow to distract me. This is the place to be. As I talk about the team and how exciting this offense can be with the new coaching staff, how great this defense is going to be, and this team, in general.
This is the place to be, and I’m excited to be a Cowboy more importantly”.
Prescott's teammate Randy Gregory reinstated
A source told Pro Football Talk that Cowboys outside linebacker Gregory has been conditionally reinstated by the NFL.
Gregory missed the entire 2019 season but now he is set to resume training and he will be eligible to return to action following the Cowboys' Week 6 gane. "Today is a day of celebration and thanks,” Gregory wrote on social media.
“I would like to thank Roger Goodell, Todd Jones and Kevin Manara of the NFL, Jerry and Stephen Jones, Jason Cohen, Will McClay, Todd Williams, and Josh Brent of the Cowboys, Dr. Dina Hijazi, DeMaurice Smith, my agent Peter Schaffer and most importantly my family for sticking by me thru thick and thin and to help me get to the positive place I am at today.
It’s go time. I am in a good place and plan to use this second chance to be a great father, player, citizen of Dallas, and teammate. Let’s get this!!! #RG94”
