Mike McCarthy hadn’t yet spoken with Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott

Mike McCarthy had a whirlwind week with the Dallas Cowboys. He went from interviewing with the Cowboys and spending the night at Jerry Jones’ place to holding an introductory press conference on Wednesday. He’s worked on putting together a staff and has some strong coordinators in place.

But one thing McCarthy hadn’t yet done as of Friday was speak with the franchise quarterback. NFL Media’s Jane Slater asked McCarthy whether he had spoken with Dak Prescott, and the new head coach said no.

Prescott did not reach a contract extension with the Cowboys prior to or during the 2019 season and is set to be a free agent. If they are unable to reach a long-term agreement with Prescott, they could always use the franchise tag on him.

Dallas has no intent to let Prescott go.

McCarthy should get to know Prescott considering the quarterback will likely have a long and extremely lucrative future with the team.
