Stephen Jones opens up about Dak Prescott’s future in Dallas
After Dak Prescott went down with a potential season ending injury, there was growing concern about his future.
Executive vice president Stephen Jones took care of that in a second.
The Dallas Cowboys VP expressed that Dak Prescott is the team’s future, via Clarence HIll Jr.
“He is our future. He is special,” said Jones. “If anyone can overcome this, it will be Dak. Our doctors feel good he will be able to overcome it and be better than ever.”
Prescott suffered a compound fracture in his ankle during the third quarter of Dallas’ 37-34 win over the New York Giants. The injury required surgery late Sunday night, but the updates provided signaled that Prescott will likely make a full recovery.
Prescott was playing on a one-year franchise tag in hopes of securing a longer commitment from the team. 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.
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.
There was always an assumption that Prescott was going to get paid this offseason, but this injury could change all of that future planning.
At least for now, that future will likely still be in Dallas.
