Zeke and Dak came into the league together. Hopefully, the future will remain that way.
When talking to the Cowboys star running back, Ezekiel Elliott made it clear that the Cowboys will not be good without Prescott throwing the ball. According to Jori Epstein of USA Today, Elliott said “no way” when asked if the Cowboys would be good without their quarterback.
“No way. No way,” said Elliott, via Epstein. “I’m going to fight for my guy.”
It’s no surprise because when Elliott wanted an extension, Prescott went to bat for his teammate and friend. The two have amazing chemistry and have logged 56 games in the league together.
In agreement with Elliott, Prescott wants to stay in Dallas. According to his comments on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Prescott wants to be a Cowboy for life.
“I’m very optimistic,” Prescott said. “That’s business, and there’s all kinds of avenues in business of why it might not get worked out. I’m very confident that I’ll be a Cowboy, and as I’ve said before, I plan to be a Cowboy for the rest of my career. So there’s no worries when it goes into that. There’s no thoughts that I allow to distract me. This is the place to be. As I talk about the team and how exciting this offense can be with the new coaching staff, how great this defense is going to be, and this team, in general. This is the place to be, and I’m excited to be a Cowboy more importantly.”
Prescott is entering his fifth year and could command a salary of $40 million. Given the massive $500 million extensions from Patrick Mahomes and four-year, $160 million deal from Deshaun Watson, Prescott is going to be asking for big bucks.
