Dak Prescott’s contract is Cowboys’ “No. 1 priority” in offseason


Dallas Cowboys have a new coach and have a quarterback today very much would like to keep his contract expires in March the haze in the barn he last played a game in late December week seventeen they didn't make it to the playoffs the rookie contract is over the injury risk has been fully and completely carried by dak Prescott that injury risk now ships over the cowboys and it will be part of the contracted that Prescott eventually gets and the more Jerry Jones and or Stephen Jones talk about the situation the more I realize that they have allowed themselves to be put over a barrel the likes of which we haven't seen since Joe Flacco became the Superbowl forty seven M.
