The Dallas Cowboys are banking on Dak Prescott to take charge of their team with Tony Romo out with a back injury. According to the latest NFL rumors, the Cowboys are hoping that Prescott would become the next Tom Brady.
In a recent appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio’s Movin’ The Chains show, Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones revealed that the team’s trainer, Mike Woicik, thinks that their rookie quarterback has the qualities of the New England Patriots superstar.
“I want you to take this for what it is, but he (Woicik) said, ‘Obviously, I’m not saying he’s Tom Brady on the field, but off the field, he certainly has a lot of his qualities,’” Jones said, as transcribed by the Dallas Morning News.
NFL rumors in Dallas imply that the Cowboys see Dak Prescott as the future of the franchise. Even though Tony Romo will come back this season, Stephen Jones continued to give hints about the possibility of Prescott doing what Brady did to Drew Bledsoe in New England in 2001.
“You know what happened to Bledsoe and Brady. I’m sure Tony’s aware of that. But the reality is, Tony’s going to come back for us and play great, we believe. But I can tell you this time we’re not going to be sitting around worrying when Tony gets back,” Jones told MMQB Sports Illustrated.
To further confirm the NFL rumors about the Cowboys hoping Dak Prescott will pull a Tom Brady on Tony Romo, Rich Hill of SB Nation noted that the Patriots’ motto “DO YOUR JOB” can be seen in Dallas’ locker room.
The Cowboys and Dak Prescott will start the new season on Sunday at home against the New York Giants. It is going to be the first real test for Prescott, who has been the most impressive quarterback of the preseason.
