3. Dak Prescott
Dak Prescott has yet to agree to a contract extension with the Cowboys.
At 27 years old and without a long-term contract, Dak Prescott would be (at least in our eyes) the perfect get for the Colts. He has a 60.8% winning percentage across 69 starts since taking over in Dallas, so he’s a proven winner.
Prior to the freak season-ending ankle injury he suffered in Week 5, he hadn’t missed a practice (let alone a game) in his four-year career. He’s as durable as any player in the league. From an intangible and leadership perspective, Prescott is everything you could want in a franchise QB, which makes the Cowboys’ insistence in terms of refusing to give in to his contract demands all the more confounding.
It remains to be seen if both sides will reach an agreement, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up with Prescott having to be franchise tagged again. His heart undoubtedly lies in Dallas, but at some point he’s going to want long-term financial security (especially after his gutting injury) and that could present the Colts with the opportunity to make him an offer he can’t refuse if the Cowboys bypass the tag.
