Cowboys Executive: Prescott Remains Future Of Franchise

Videos by OutKick

After witnessing the likes of Andy Dalton, Ben DiNucci and Garrett Gilbert, the Dallas Cowboys remain very committed to Dak Prescott as their quarterback of the future.

Just in case you were wondering.

The topic was broached because, right now, the Cowboys stink. With that in mind, reporters asked Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones if the team might consider taking a quarterback in the 2021 draft.

Jones answered with conviction.

“Dak’s our quarterback,” he said. “We’re so fired up about him and him leading us into the future.”

Prescott is expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering a compound ankle fracture/dislocation in Week 5 against the New York Giants. Since then, the Cowboys have tried to get it done first with Dalton … then DiNucci … then Gilbert, who looked the best of the three replacements in his lone appearance, a 24-19 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

For the record, Dalton is expected to clear concussion protocol and again be the starter once the Cowboys return from a bye on Nov. 22.

But these are all temporary fill-ins. Before suffering the injury, Prescott had started 72 straight games. He also passed for at least 450 yards in the three games leading up to his injury.

The Cowboys had issues this season with Prescott, but they were hardly his fault. Ezekiel Elliott’s inability to get going and the defense’s inability to defend have been considerably bigger issues.

So forget any suggestion that the Cowboys may be looking to replace Prescott.

“It’s full speed ahead with Dak,” Jones said. “He’s done a great job to this point.”
