Dak Prescott’s biggest adjustment, according to coach Mike McCarthy
Dallas’ starting quarterback Dak Prescott will be heading into the upcoming season with a new-look Cowboys team. With the club’s acquisition of a new head coach along with some new faces, a lot of adjustments have to be made.
Despite all that has happened during the offseason, newly-acquired head tactician Mike McCarthy spoke highly of the two-time Pro Bowler.
“I’ll say this,” McCarthy said. “I think Dak has done a great job with the time away and really the whole group, the quarterback group, with the addition of Andy Dalton.
“The biggest adjustment for Dak is the language, which has been an adjustment for all of us. But he’s looked very good in the throwing segments of the strength and conditioning phase we’re in right now.
“I’m very pleased with where he is and very impressed.”
Prescott constantly found himself in the headlines during the offseason because of seemingly unending contract negotiations between the player and the team. The two sides were unable to reach an agreement, and Prescott eventually signed a one-year, exclusive franchise tender for $31.4 million on July 15. Despite not landing the lucrative paycheck that he desired, it looks like Prescott is still buying into the new system set in place.
In fact, the Mississippi State product has plenty to look forward to in the upcoming season with the Cowboys. With the arrival of McCarthy, the team has moved on from former head coach Jason Garrett after a nine-year partnership. A dangerous offense is also looming with the arrival of a highly-touted prospect in CeeDee Lamb.
Dak Prescott is looking to ball out for yet another season with potent weapons at his disposal. He will hope to break the bank and establish himself as one of the league’s best quarterbacks, be it in Dallas or on another team.
