Dak Prescott challenging Cowboys on Jamal Adams trade by signing franchise tag?

Dak Prescott

Many were surprised by the timing of Dak Prescott’s decision to sign his franchise tender. It officially puts Prescott’s tender on the books, and means the quarterback will be present for training camp. So why now? One reason may be to put added pressure on the Cowboys as a high-profile player signals his desire to be traded to Dallas.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports believes that Prescott’s decision to sign his tender comes in light of Jamal Adams demanding a trade from the New York Jets, and has openly named the Cowboys as a preferred destination. A trade and extension for Adams would be much easier cap-wise if the Cowboys can sort out a long-term agreement with Prescott.

This would be some sharp tactical work by Prescott if it’s entered his mind. The Cowboys have been linked to Adams before, and would probably love the chance to acquire him. Perhaps the chance to do so will add some urgency to Prescott talks.

On the other hand, Adams may not demand an extension if he is traded, and the Jets may simply try to wait out his demand anyway. That may lead to little change in the negotiation situation for Dallas right now.
