Rumor: Dak leaving the Cowboys for an NFC East rival?
As Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott enters the season without a contract for 2025, one NFL analyst believes he will end up playing quarterback for the New York Giants.
Tony Dorsett left the Denver Broncos, Emmitt Smith went to the Arizona Cardinals, and Ezekiel Elliott ran for the New England Patriots last season.

Next in line for awkward departures of Dallas Cowboys heroes to unsavory rivals: Dak Prescott to the Big Apple?

The New York Giants’ quarterbacks are ready to go this season with disappointing former first-round pick Daniel Jones or career backup Drew Lock. But in 2025? Prescott will become a free agent after the 2024 season, as the Cowboys have tabled negotiations on a contract extension for him.

Let the speculation begin.

One rumor, spread by a long-time Cowboys analyst for FOX Sports, is that Prescott could sign with the Giants. According to writer David Helman:

“The Giants are a logical landing spot—but also a fun storyline. Prescott’s no-tag clause allows him to do whatever he wants if he hits the open market, including signing with a division rival who is desperate for good quarterback play.”

While Prescott has had his fair share of playoff disappointments, he has thrived in the NFC East, particularly with the Giants. New York hasn’t beaten Dak since his rookie season in 2016, and they’re 2-12 against him overall.

Prescott’s plan would include dumping Jones, which would save the Giants $19 million in salary cap space by 2025. But, even on the open market, would Dak be tempted to sign with the Giants?

“Fortunately for Prescott, the situation in North Jersey may look a lot better in 2025 than it has in recent years,” Fox writes. “The Giants have spent the spring strengthening their offensive line, and No. 6 overall draft pick Malik Nabers provides them with a true No. 1 receiver for the first time since Odell Beckham Jr. left town. Signing Prescott and resolving the quarterback situation in March would allow general manager Joe Schoen to concentrate on drafting even more weapons next April.”

Dak will beat the Giants for at least another year. But a year from now, could he join them?
