Shannon Sharpe blasts Cowboys over Dak Prescott contract situation

Cowboys, Dak Prescott, Shannon Sharpe

Shannon Sharpe is fed up with the way the Dallas Cowboys have dealt with Dak Prescott and his contract. Sharpe said on undisputed that this is the first time he has seen a quarterback accomplish what Prescott has through his first four years in the league, and still have to threaten a holdout.

“In all my years, I’ve never seen a QB accomplish what Dak has in his first 4 years and have to threaten to hold out.”

The Cowboys have gotten a lot of pushback from media and former players for the signing of Andy Dalton before a long term deal was done with Prescott. The Cowboys brought in Dalton to be the backup, but him getting a $3 million dollar deal can’t be sitting well as Prescott still waits for his extension.

On The Adam Schefter Podcast, Dalton said he is excited to come in and be any sort of help that he can be for Prescott and the Cowboys.

“I wanted to join a high-class organization and team that’s ready to win and be with Mike McCarthy … His history with quarterbacks gives me a chance to come to a new place, a chance to learn, to help Dak out any way I can, and just be an asset for this team. Obviously, I bring a lot of experience and can bring a lot to the table. I’m here to help this team win and help in any way I can.”

The hope is that a long term deal can get done this offseason, but if there isn’t, and Prescott does hold out, the Cowboys have a backup plan in Dalton.
