After one of his worst seasons as the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys in terms of interceptions, and after his second consecutive playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Dak Prescott‘s days as the QB of Dallas seem to be numbered.
According to a report by Jason Smith of Fox Sports Radio, the team’s management has already informed Prescott that if he doesn’t take a step forward in his game this season and takes the team further in the playoffs, he’s out.

Dallas would look for a new QB in the draft
“With what we’ve heard from the Cowboys in the last 24 hours, Dak Prescott is in his last season with Dallas if he doesn’t take a step forward. He’ll be gone after this season,” said Smith.
“Therefore, Dallas has been linked to QB prospects in the last two days. It was reported that they are ‘intrigued’ by CJ Stroud, but Stroud is likely to be the second pick in the draft, so jumping from #20 to #2 would probably be difficult,” he added.
“The other QB they were linked to today was Hendon Hooker. It was reported that they looked into him a lot. Hooker is coming off an anterior cruciate ligament tear, and he probably would have been a first-round player if not for that. But with the large number of players who will be chosen this year, Hooker will slip to the end of the first round or early second…”
In the last two days Cowboys have been linked with C.J. Stroud & Hendon Hooker. This is a HUGE message to Dak Prescott. Dallas will “Jordan Love” Dak and draft a QB this season – meaning Dak has next season to prove he can win or the Cowboys will trade him and move on.

Without citing sources other than his insiders on the team, Smith concluded: “So here’s the conclusion of this: Dak Prescott is in his last year of playing better and silencing his critics, or else he’ll be on a different team in a year.”
The report adds that it would be less complicated for Dallas to get rid of Prescott than for Green Bay to get rid of Aaron Rodgers. “His contract isn’t as complicated with the money as someone like Aaron Rodgers… If the Cowboys wanted to get rid of a 30-year-old Dak Prescott after this year, a team would definitely be willing to do it. This is the Cowboys warning Dak,” he said.
