Cowboys owner Jerry Jones claims Dak Prescott’s price tag isn’t changing from week to week
Dak Prescott turned down an extension offer from the Dallas Cowboys prior to the start of the season, and over the first three weeks, it looked like a wise decision, as the quarterback lit it up with nine touchdowns and two interceptions in three wins.
But over the past couple of games, Prescott has not looked as good, totaling two touchdowns and four picks in a pair of Cowboys losses, which then made some question his decision to reject Dallas’ contract offer.
So, is Prescott’s price tag vacillating from week to week? Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says no.
“Let me get that real clear. It’s not impacting that with me at all,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. “But I do see Dak showing the ability to handle adversity and basically go out and make the kind of plays that win important games for the Cowboys in the future. I see that.”
On the season overall, Prescott has thrown for 1,606 yards, 11 touchdowns, and six interceptions while completing 69.6 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 106.
While his numbers look good overall, there is no doubt that Prescott has been wildly inconsistent, and the fact that his first three wins came against the Giants, Redskins, and Dolphins, three teams that have combined to go 2-12, is also a sticking point.
Prescott, who played his collegiate football at Mississippi State, was originally selected by Dallas in the fourth round (135th pick overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Over his first three seasons, the 26-year-old made a couple of Pro Bowl appearances and also led the Cowboys to a pair of NFC East division titles.
