Despite suffering a calf injury that may have affected his performance in one game, the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Prescott put together another strong season in 2021.
The veteran 28-year old passed for 4,449 yards with a career high 37 touchdowns. This led to the Cowboys’ 12-5 regular season record, and NFC East title. Although Dallas did not reach its ultimate goal to win a Super Bowl title, Prescott played like a top-10 quarterback.
Jerry Jones, Cowboys owner, hopes that his quarterback will continue to build relationships with his receiving team as he enters the offseason.
Jones stated, via Michael Gehlken from The Dallas Morning News.

Prescott’s top targets for 2021 will all be back next season with one exception. Amari Cooper, a wide receiver, was traded to Cleveland Browns earlier in the month as a cost-saving move.
Cedrick Wilson Jr. won’t be returning to Dallas after signing a free-agent deal with the Miami Dolphins. CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Noah Brown, Malik Turner, and others will be the Cowboys top wideout options.
Dallas will be able to return Dalton Schultz, the tight end after it exercised its franchise tag for the fifth-year professional.
