The Dallas Cowboys may consider a Dak Prescott deal in the near future. If Prescott has another bad season,
the Cowboys may consider dealing their franchise quarterback after the 2023 season, as ESPN's Stephen A. Smith stated during a First Take program.
Despite appearing in only 12 games last season, Prescott led the NFL in interceptions (15). "At the end of the day, what Jerry Jones is saying, considering the dead cap hit
$61.9 million he's gonna have next year, so you don't want to release him because it'll kill you," Smith stated on September 6. "But that means you're willing to consider trading him if he wets the bed."
Following the Cowboys' trade for former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance, Prescott's future has become a heated subject.
Furthermore, Prescott has yet to negotiate a contract extension with Dallas, despite the fact that his colleagues,
including Terence Steele, Trevon Diggs, Malik Hooker, and Zack Martin, have all inked new contracts this summer.
Prescott has one year remaining on his contract after this season, with a cap hit of $59.5 million for the 2024 season.
From a cap standpoint, selling Prescott after the 2023 season is unlikely, since it would result in a $61.9 million dead cap charge split over three seasons.
This assumes the Cowboys trade Prescott after June 1, when most clubs have already selected who their starting quarterback for the 2024 season will be.
