Jerry Jones has been known to make some pretty crazy statements from time to time. The eccentric Dallas Cowboys owner now has one in regards to trading his beloved starting quarterback, Dak Prescott.  


Prior to Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, Jones said, “When I say man, he’s our future. I don’t know how we could ask for more, to have this opportunity for him to progress the way he has. If someone walked in here right now and looked like they were going to get the No. 1 pick in the draft and said we’ll give you two picks for Dak. I wouldn’t even consider it. No.”

That is pure insanity. Two first-round picks, including first overall and Jones, would say no?! There are perennial pro-bowlers that don't command two first round picks. Jones said he wouldn't accept that deal with the first overall pick involved, yet history tells us the first overall pick is worth two first-round picks or more all by itself. Prescott himself was a fourth-round pick. 

Aside from his rookie season, Prescott has been mediocre. This year alone he has failed to throw for 200 yards in four games. Dallas was 9-7 last year and 4-5 so far this year. Prescott has a 64.1 completion percentage in 2018, but at times has seemed timid when it comes to throwing the ball down the field. Stagnating the offense with the inability to stretch the field. 

Prescott has had moments and drives of real greatness this year including an impressive game against the Eagles last week, but many have begun to question if he is indeed the franchise quarterback the Cowboys are looking for. Luckily for Prescott, the owner of the team seems to be on his side, which is welcoming, no matter how crazy he may seem about it.
