The Dallas Cowboys haven’t gotten Dak Prescott signed long term and that’s left room for rumor. One that needs to be dismissed is the interest in Tom Brady.

The Dallas Cowboys are known for stealing headlines and that is no different in the offseason than it is during the regular season when there is actual action on the field. While much of the Cowboys’ last offseason was dominated by the Ezekiel Elliott contract storyline, they find themselves in a similar scenario this offseason with Cowboys signal-caller, Dak Prescott.

While it has been rumored and reported that they will, at a minimum, place the franchise tag on Prescott to ensure he suits up in a Dallas Cowboys jersey next season, there has also been talk from team brass that they will work diligently to get a long term deal done that is mutually accepted and beneficial to both sides.

This uncertainty, so to speak, has left room for the rumors to creep into the fold though. There is this one specific rumor that is really seeming to freak people out though; either with denial and hatred of the thought or bliss and a drooling at the thought of type situation.

This rumor is the one where the Cowboys sign soon to be free agent Tom Brady to be their quarterback. To quickly catch up you up and tell you all that you need to know, here’s why this is theoretically possible.

The Cowboys technically don’t have a quarterback since Dak Prescott’s deal is technically up, while Tom Brady is in a similar scenario where he is set to be a free agent, as his deal is up with the Patriots as of now as well.

So, although it is very likely that they both end up right where they were last season and more than a certainty that at least Dak does, this is how it is actually possible.
