Dak Prescott has ‘high’ expectations for upcoming season
Dak Prescott is thinking big things entering the upcoming NFL season.
Prescott hosted his annual youth ProCamp at Northwest High School in Justin, Texas over the weekend. He spoke with Dallas Morning News reporter Jon Machota while he was there and said he had “high” expectations for the upcoming season.
“My expectations are high,” Prescott said, via Machota. “Not necessarily any ceiling on what I can do or what this team can do. It’s just been about work. Simply just working to get better in every aspect of my game, making sure my teammates are doing the same. We’re excited for the position we’re in.”
Prescott similarly told CBS Dallas Fort Worth that there was nothing other than themselves that could keep them from the Super Bowl.
Dak when asked what, if anything, should stop Cowboys from getting to Super Bowl: “Ourselves. We want to be competitive each day as we move forward in camp. That’s gonna grow when we get out there on Sundays, being that close-knit team we are. There’s no ceiling on this team.” https://t.co/7rDX0aKjob

Prescott is entering his fourth season in the league. He emerged as a rookie, throwing for 22 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions while the team went 13-3. He took a step back in his second year, but then he returned to form last season in his third year passing for 3,885 yards, 22 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. He proved that as long as he has some quality receiving options, he can be successful, as he looked great once the team traded for Amari Cooper.
The big question surrounding Dak is his contract. He is set to make just over $2 million next season, his final year under contract. At last check, the two sides weren’t close on reaching a deal. He could be lined up to make some major money when he does sign.
