Prescott, 27, has started at quarterback for the team since 2016, when he filled in for the injured Tony Romo in his rookie season. The fourth-round pick has made two Pro Bowls with the team in the first five years of his career. In 69 starts, Prescott has passed for 17,634 passing yards, 106 touchdowns and 40 interceptions on 66 percent completion.
Dallas will hope that Prescott has fully recovered from his dislocated and fractured ankle that limited his 2020 season to just five games. Before the injury, he was leading the league in passing.
With Prescott back in the fold, the Cowboys will look to compete for an NFC East title and possibly more in 2021.
