The Dallas Cowboys found themselves in a position that no franchise would ever want to be in. Sharing an estranged relationship with star quarterback Dak Prescott over a new contract, the Cowboys were oh-so-close to losing their key offensive weapon.

A contract saga that dragged on for 2 years saw the Cowboys franchise tagging Prescott ahead of the 2020 season. While a gruesome ankle injury in Week 5 ruled the QB out for the rest of the season, he had done enough to win over the trust of the Cowboys front office. 

Signing a 4-year, $160 million contract extension, the Cowboys and Prescott let bygones be bygones. Now fit and ready to play again, Prescott said that he has utmost faith in the Cowboys management. A sharp departure from the sentiments he had for them even a year ago.

Talking to the Athletic, Prescott who is now the second-highest paid player in the league was asked whether he should have any say in the Cowboys’ decision making going forward.

But 27-year-old QB said that he had total trust in the Cowboys management’s decision-making going forward. 

“I trust the people around here that have those titles and have those positions to do what they need to,” Prescott said.

The quarterback further emphasized on the relationship he shares with the team’s management and how they always keep him in the loop when needed.

“I feel they do ask me and bring me into the loop on things when they feel like they should. We have a great relationship.”

While plenty of star quarterbacks in the league are reportedly disgruntled with their franchise’s decision making, Prescott maintained that the Cowboys handle things much better.

“I don’t want to ever begin to compare what’s going on here in Dallas and how we handle things to other organizations,” he said.

Things were not always this smooth in Dallas. When Prescott was franchise tagged, a lot of people expected the QB to be moved on once the season ended.

But the Dallas Cowboys clearly had enough faith in Prescott to offer him the bumper new contract. But with it comes even loftier expectations. 

Having missed the Playoffs in 2020, America’s Team will look to make it back to the postseason in 2021. With Prescott back in the mix, do you think he can provide the push needed for the Cowboys to be Super Bowl contenders once again?
