Ever since he was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2016 NFL Draft, Dak Prescott has been the team’s starting quarterback. And it looks like the team has full confidence in him remaining the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future.
While at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, executive vice president Stephen Jones told ESPN in an interview that he still thinks Dak Prescott can lead the franchise to a Super Bowl title.
“I’ve got all the faith in the world we can win this thing with Dak,” Jones said from the scouting combine in Indianapolis, according to ESPN.
“Because we know him. We know what he’s about. His leadership skills are undeniable. Impeccable work ethic,” Jones said. “Other than he hadn’t won some key playoff games, he’s everything you want in a quarterback. From the day he walked in the door, he’s won a lot of games. We just got to get over the hump.”
Because of their confidence in Prescott, Jones revealed that the team does plan to re-sign Prescott to a new deal to keep him with the team.
“We’ve got to have a plan to ultimately extend Dak,” Jones said.
It’s pretty big news, especially given the recent report that the Cowboys were “intrigued” by Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud in the draft. And the NFL world had plenty to say about the update.
Mired in mediocrity. That is what perfectly sums up this organization. https://t.co/pSIeckiEMK

Wonder if they’ve got a plan to build a team that can get out of round two yet. https://t.co/UzFMib0Ud3

We’ll have to see how this works out for the Cowboys.
