Dak Prescott has been in the headlines all offseason for his contract negotiations with the Dallas Cowboys. We have made it all the way to July and the Cowboys and Dak Prescott have still not agreed to a long term contract extension. This has led the media to speculate whether the future of Dak Prescott will be with the Cowboys or some other team. We do know one thing for sure: Prescott will be the Cowboys quarterback for the 2020 season as he will play under the franchise tag, however beyond that is anyone’s guess.
Dallas can tag Prescott again next year but the price to tag him goes up. And some believe that because of that reason, that Dallas won’t tag Dak again and let him walk. In fact, many betting odds now have the Chicago Bears as a team that could be Dak Prescott’s landing spot in 2021. The Bears are one of the teams that is still looking for a long term answer at the quarterback position after Mitchell Trubisky regressed in his third season in the NFL. The Bears brought in Nick Foles to compete or potentially replace Trubisky but Foles is not viewed as a long term option. And so insert Prescott, who would be an upgrade over both Trubisky and Foles for the Chicago Bears, a team that already has a superbowl ready defense. However, the major question is what it would take for the Bears to get Prescott and more importantly what it would cost them. As we have seen with his negotiations with the Cowboys, Prescott is looking for a lot of money and if you commit a ton of money to the QB position, that means less money to spend elsewhere. I explore all of this in my latest video above.
