Despite his failure in the playoffs yet again, Dak Prescott will be the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys in 2023.
The Cowboys are coming off another disappointing postseason run as they got eliminated from the playoffs by the San Francisco 49ers for the second-straight season. Prescott threw two interceptions in the first half of the Cowboys’ playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers. Prescott was tied for the league lead in interceptions during the regular season. Prescott finished the game going 23-of-37 for 206 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.

On ESPN’s Get Up, Tannenbaum suggested the Cowboys seriously consider drafting another quarterback for depth.

“Here’s how I would approach it from a team-building standpoint,” Tannenbaum said. “I would sign (Prescott) to an extension, that is a stabilizing move because you are in contention.

The Dallas Cowboys are unlikely to make any major moves at quarterback this offseason, but they did part ways with offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. The team has since signed Brian Schottenheimer. He’s had 22 years of NFL experience with 12 of those at the coordinator level.
The Cowboys want to be dynamic on offense, which is what they were not in 2022.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
