Dak Prescott’s brother, Tad, is ready to give up his Dallas Cowboys fandom. After Dak and the Cowboys couldn’t come to an agreement on a long-term deal, Tad tweeted he might be cheering for another team soon.
Dak, 26, had until 4 p.m. ET to sign a long-term deal with the Cowboys. It didn’t get done, meaning he’ll play under the franchise tag in 2020. Depending on how things go this season, the Cowboys can tag Prescott again. If they still can’t work out a deal, Prescott would presumably sign elsewhere once he hits the free-agent market.
At that point, Tad will have to find a new team.
While it seemed unlikely Dak and the Cowboys would work out a deal, there was optimism as the deadline approached. Prescott reportedly wanted to sign a long-term deal with the team, but they couldn’t get it done in time.
I'm told #Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was involved at the last minute in an effort to get a long term deal done but it was up against the 3pm CST deadline per source informed. The deal was between 33-35M annually with a 110 guaranteed. #Cowboys #Dak— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) July 15, 2020
Whether Prescott feels that way next offseason depends on how he performs in 2020. With another excellent year, Prescott will cost the Cowboys even more money. If the Cowboys don’t want to pay that price and tag Prescott again, Tad can officially start scouting out his next team.
