For the Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott, there’s only one deadline that matters: July 15. That have until that time to iron out a long-term deal, but so far, nothing has come out.
If it doesn’t happen, the former Mississippi State star is currently slated to play the 2020 NFL season under the franchise tag.
With the signing of Andy Dalton, it has led to speculation that Prescott’s future in Dallas might be in doubt.
One analyst has named five teams that could make sense for Prescott in the future. FanSided’s Gino Terrell named five teams that might consider making a move for Prescott.
First team on the list was the San Francisco 49ers.
“The 49ers could intrigue the Cowboys as they have a quarterback who would make less than Prescott, who is insisting to set the market as the highest-paid player. Garoppolo has experience and maybe he’s a quarterback the Cowboys feel they could win with.
To sweeten the deal, the 49ers could toss in a couple of draft picks,” he writes.
The next team was the Detroit Lions. He writes:
“The Detroit Lions have been thought to begin searching for a quarterback to replace 11-year veteran Matthew Stafford. It would take more than Stafford, but having him in a trade package may intrigue the Cowboys.
The Lions would have to throw in multiple picks to get this trade to go through. With the Lions playing in the NFC North, they will more than likely finish last in 2020. That could give the Cowboys a favorable draft choice come 2021. It could be a win-win for both football clubs.”
Round out the remainder of the list are the Jaguars, Patriots, and Buffalo Bills.
