Report: Andy Dalton signing has ‘zero’ to do with Dak Prescott contract situation

Andy Dalton

Was the Dallas Cowboys’ signing of Andy Dalton a message to Dak Prescott? Some are already starting that speculation, but the Cowboys are saying that is far from the case.

Prescott was given a franchise tag by the Cowboys but has not signed his tender yet. The sides are negotiating and have until July to reach a possible long-term extension. So were the Cowboys adding Dalton as competition and to pressure Dak?

According to what a source told NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, the Dalton signing has “zero” to do with Prescott’s contract.

That is how we feel.

Dallas is not stupid. They want to sign Prescott long term and have offered him contracts. I don’t believe Dalton is a chip used to pressure Prescott, as some may think. The Cowboys saw an opportunity to sign a good backup for cheap. How could they pass that up?
