Former Cowboy tweets his opinion on Cowboys front office awake of Dak’s injury
As the football world continues to emphasize for Dak Prescott, one former Dallas Cowboys made his voice heard around the world.
Prescott went down in the third quarter of Sunday’s matchup against the New York Giants. According to an unofficial diagnosis, Prescott suffered a broken bone or a serious dislocation. The quarterback was taken off the field in tears.
Prescott was playing on a one-year franchise tag in hopes of securing a longer commitment from the team. His former teammate, wide receiver Dez Bryant, took to Twitter to voice his message on what the front office should do.
“STEPHEN JONES JERRY JONES YALL MAKE SURE Y’ALL TAKE CARE OF DAK IF HE CANT PLAY AGAIN,” Bryant tweeted.
Prescott was offered a five-year contract, but Prescott refused in hopes of securing more guaranteed money. He could have held out, but elected to sign the exclusive franchise tag.
There was always an assumption that Prescott was going to get paid this offseason, but this injury could change all of that future planning.
The injury was not career ending, so there is hope for his future payout, but it might have to come later than sooner.
Prescott was on pace for a record setting year. He had thrown for over 500 yards in a game and was likely going to become the first Cowboy to ever throw for over 5,000 yards.
Now, that won’t happen until at least next year if Prescott is brought back.
