Franchise Tag window opens Tuesday, will Prescott be tagged again? - Jim Nevarez, Cowboys Wire via Yahoo Sports
Let’s hope the Cowboys can void this.
Another week of the NFL offseason has begun and another week of speculating about the future of Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys seems to be ahead.
With the NFL franchise tag window opening Tuesday, the Cowboys can officially place the tag on Prescott for a second season. It has been highly expected Dallas will do so by the March 9 deadline, in hopes of coming to an agreement on a long-term deal that has eluded the two sides for the last two offseasons. NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport stated his belief, “The Cowboys do want to workout a long-term deal with Prescott before they have to tag him”.
A second franchise tag for the former fourth-round pick will cost the Cowboys $37.7 million this coming season. A third franchise tag in 2022 would cost Dallas nearly $54 million, surely more than the Cowboys would be able to afford.
