The Cowboys have a top 10 quarterback, and their failure to pay him accordingly could result in the team paying top dollar by July 15.
Dak Prescott comes in at No. 8 on the Chris Simms top 40 quarterback countdown for 2020.
Prescott moved up from No. 13 after his third season. Although he lacks many of the “wow” moments of a Patrick Mahomes (then again, pretty every quarterback not named Patrick Mahomes does), Prescott gets it done.
Critics would say he doesn’t, because No. 8 only won eight games last year. But there were reasons for that unrelated to Prescott, including a defense that wasn’t nearly as good as it needed to be.
