The Dallas Cowboys have secured their pass rusher in DeMarcus Lawrence. Now it’s time to lock up Amari Cooper and Dak Prescott in that order.
The Dallas Cowboys and DeMarcus Lawrence have finally worked through negotiations and have come to an agreement on a new contract. Now it’s time for the Cowboys to focus their efforts on locking up their Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper and quarterback Dak Prescott. Either before the draft or immediately after.
The reason that this needs to happen soon is due to the contract talks between quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Carson Wentz as well as receivers Julio Jones and Tyreek Hill. If the Cowboys want to get a nice deal that is team friendly enough to sign next years free agents it must be done before them. If not the price on both players would mean losing one or two top contributors next season.
In Prescott’s the Dallas Cowboys must the team must get the deal done before Eagles quarterback Wentz and Chief’s receiver Hill do. If you look at the stats of Wentz’s 23-17 record,10,152 yards, 72 total touchdowns to 28 interceptions and 63.7 completion percentage and Hill’s 223 catches, 3,255 yards receiving and 25 touchdowns. You would see why the Cowboys need to get a deal done and it’s not because they are better.
Prescott drafted in the fourth round of the same draft as Wentz has posted a 33-18 record with 10,876 yards, 85 total touchdowns, 28 interceptions, and 66.1 completion percentage and Cooper’s 278 catches, 3,908 yards receiving and 25 touchdowns. Both men clearly have better stats compared to their counterparts.
This is the main reason they must get their contracts done before those men. Both Wentz and Hill represent Prescott and Cooper’s floors for contracts. I the Cowboys don’t get this done before them, it will put them in a situation where someone may have to go in next years free agency.
Time will tell if the Dallas Cowboys are able to get a deal done. But I hope and pray that they do or it’s going to be a long and heartbreaking free agency period next year.
