An executive from the NFL accuses the Dallas Cowboys of intentionally losing games in order to secure quarterback Dak Prescott.

NFL executive claims Cowboys are working hard to retain QB Dak Prescott

The Dallas Cowboys have yet to sign Dak Prescott to a contract extension, and one NFL executive believes it’s all part of Jerry Jones’ plan.

Prescott is coming off one of the best seasons in the NFL, but the QB will likely play out the 2024 season without a new contract.

In a recent article by The Athletic reporter Mike Sand, an anonymous NFL executive addressed the Cowboys’ situation. “If that guy wants $60 million a year, you know what we’ll do in return?” the executive said.

“We’re going to have an average team, but you guys are going to play worse and we’re going to get you guys at a better price.”

This is a far-fetched idea, but perhaps not out of the realm of possibility. Owners may feel that this roster may not be a strong contender for a Super Bowl appearance in 2024, given Prescott and head coach Mike McCarthy.

After a humiliating loss to the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs, they might have a reason. But it still seems to be putting the cart before the horse to intentionally take a franchise QB into his final year just to be “mediocre” and get more favorable terms.

Latest information on contract negotiations with Dak Prescott
Hopes for an early extension took a big hit in late March when NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport updated fans on negotiations.

Basically, Dallas hasn’t offered him a new contract, but the two sides are “getting along.” “The Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott have a mutual understanding,” Rapoport wrote, adding that we are fully prepared for this year.

The Cowboys are in a precarious position considering Prescott’s contract has a no-tag, no-trade clause. If he doesn’t sign an extension before next offseason, it means the Cowboys’ longtime QB has full power to go anywhere.

Meanwhile, Dallas can watch Prescott perform. And if both sides have an “understanding,” negotiations this season or next offseason should provide some flexibility and certainty.


Cowboys expected to trade Trey Lance
Prescott’s future in Dallas is a big topic, but so is the future of backup QB Trey Lance.

The former No. 3 overall pick was traded from the San Francisco 49ers and is set to start his second season in Dallas, but is now expected to move again.

Bleacher Report writer Alex Valentine suggested that a trade to the Packers could net the Cowboys a fourth-round pick in return.

He said, “At least it’s worth calling the Cowboys for the Packers. In the worst-case scenario, Lance plays out the final year of his contract and leaves in 2025.

In the best-case scenario, he shows improvement and either becomes a long-term backup or gets another top pick back in a later trade,” Valentine wrote.

. Having a backup is always important, but it’s hard to imagine Lance giving Packers QB Jordan Love a head start in the starting lineup.
