This is certainly a debatable topic: Multiple reports were posted via twitter by Ian Rapoport on Sunday morning that indicate Dak Prescott will be continuing his career, but now with the Super Bowl Camps, Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are supposedly trading a 2nd round pick and defensive end Brandon Graham, Eagles sack leader last year, for the tight-window-passer threat, Dak Prescott. The deal was reportedly worth $49 million for four years.
Prescott will definitely help the team out when it needs some. This could also be a indicator that Nick Foles is to part ways with Philadelphia; there is no way Dak Prescott goes from a starting quarterback that took his horrible team to the playoffs the season prior to just last season, to a third string quarterback.
Dak Prescott, age 24, will be partnering with Eagles quarterbacks Carson Wentz, Nate Sudfeld, and Nick Foles (if he doesn’t leave), which seems like a pretty nice trio (assuming Foles parts ways). Now it’s all about the team keeping healthy. Hopefully Prescott won’t be needed at all this season, unless replaced for Carson Wentz at the closer end of games to prevent injuries, as they did with Nick Foles last year.
As of the leave of defensive end Brandon Graham, Chris Long, age 32, is expected to replace Graham. There is no doubt that Chris Long showed what he can do, with five sacks including three strip-sacks, as a backup! Long is under contract through the 2021 season.
Dak Prescott certainly has a great attitude about the trade for whatever reason. Possibly because he and the Cowboys didn’t have such great chemistry in the locker-room unlike the Eagles whom had great locker-room chemistry this past season. Dak Prescott’s statement is as follows:
From enemies to team mates: I’m in fact extremely excited to continue my wonderful career with the Philadelphia Eagles’ organization, players, and staff. Before I tell the Eagles Nation my pleasure of being rooted for by them, I would like to thank my former teammates, coaches, and staff. There is nothing better I love about knowing that I will also have another fan base on-top of Philadelphia reserving a special place in their heart for me. I love all of you. I can’t wait to help the Eagles win their second Super Bowl. Get ready to watch us on the Super Bowl Champ’s bus again next year! Love you all.
