Dak Prescott removes all of the question marks about the future
Dak wants big-time money, and one way or another, he will reach his payday soon. Prescott is on the franchise tag in 2020 and looks poised to stay on it in 2021, which will already make him a decent bit of money, but his departure after the 2021 season is what could bring him to Tampa Bay.
Quarterback is the most critical position on the field, and the Bucs should be willing to lock this down for around $40 million per year by that point in time. Consistent quarterback play is extremely valuable, especially from a top-10 player, and the Bucs will desperately need to find a new face of the franchise.
Prescott will be 29 going into this contract and will entail almost no risk for the Bucs to take on. In addition to Prescott being a safe choice, the Buccaneers need the star power that Dak would bring.
Tampa Bay will be coming off of two of their (hopefully) best seasons in years, and they will need to show that they are still committed to winning after Tom Brady’s departure. Prescott would send a message to the rest of the league that the Bucs are still an attractive free-agent destination and help stretch out the Bucs’ relevancy.
