Is it worth it?

Dak Prescott is a great person. By all means, he would do anything for anyone; however, there is a line. Why would he sign his franchise tag or even a contract to go to Seattle?

At the same time, why would Jerry Jones forfeit multiple first-round picks and a franchise quarterback for Wilson? While he is cheaper and has a contract through the next three seasons, it still doesn’t make sense.

Look at that and tell me if you would accept it. I know that I wouldn’t. No matter what, the Seahawks will end up winning the trade. That is unless Dak falls off a cliff and all three first-rounders are busts.

As expected, the Cowboys once again stated their commitment to their leader and face of the franchise, Dak Prescott. An unnamed source out of Dallas told Josina Anderson what the team’s plans are:

"“Dak is our QB. Still working on getting something done.”"

Well, there you have it. Until Dallas officially moves on from their quarterback, they will continue to say he is their guy. The day we find out Dak is traded is when we find out the team is moving on.

Prescott is the perfect person to play quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. He is very professional, can play at an elite level, a leader in the locker room, and is always helping the community.

You can say the same for Russell Wilson, but there is one key difference. Dak is already here and won over the team and fanbase. Wilson would need to come in and adapt to an entirely new environment.

Don’t try to fix something that did not break. The only thing Prescott did wrong was get injured while trying to run for a first down. As tempting as it is, trading for Wilson is not worth it. Sign Dak Prescott to a long-term deal.
