We have been running through some possible quarterback candidates that could make their way to the Colts in free agency. We continue that with someone who has only worn the star on their helmet in their career.
The offseason is the best time for some speculation and putting some dots together. So we continue to do the with the Colts’ QB position. With Jacoby Brissett playing so poorly the second half of the season, Indy might have a new quarterback next year.
Dak Prescott is a free agent next year as well, and has only played for Dallas in his career. He has had a solid first four years of his career, and played well again last season. He threw 30 touchdowns to only 11 interceptions and completed 65% of his passes to go along with 4,902 yards.
His style of play makes him a great fit in Indy. He can move the pocket if he needs to and can make all of the throws needed at this level. He also isn’t reliant on the pass-catchers to be the only source of playmaking. That is something the Colts desperately need.
The problem is that he has been asking for a large amount of money. He was offered $30 million a year from Dallas and he turned them down. The Colts aren’t likely to come anywhere near that number, let alone what number Prescott truly wants.
Because of the finances, this is a match that likely won’t happen. If Chris Ballard did decide to open up the checkbook and use the massive amount of cap space the team has, this would actually be a really nice fit for both player and team.
At this point though, we know who Ballard is. He won’t spend money on outside talent and will instead mold players through the draft. That’s why Prescott won’t be wearing the Horseshoe anytime soon.
