KEY POINTS

  • Tom Brady and Dak Prescott await new deals
  • Terrell Owens believes Dallas should consider Tom Brady
  • Brady holds low chances of leaving New England at 42

The Dallas Cowboys and the New England Patriots were among the NFL teams already on vacation. Both teams are expected to have a busy offseason which includes fixing the contracts of their starting quarterbacks.

Tom Brady of the New England Patriots will be an upcoming free agent but is already 42. On the other side, there is Dak Prescott who is only 26 but has yet to get a new deal with the Cowboys.

Brady showed that he was no longer as effective compared to previous years. And while he once said he wants to play until he is 45-years-old, questions surround his ability to keep up with younger quarterbacks.

In a previous post, team owner Robert Kraft said that he would love to see the four-time Super Bowl MVP in a Pats uniform next season. Seeing that Brady has no plans yet to retire, it will be interesting if he does re-sign with New England although there are questions on his role. Will he remain the team's starting quarterback? If not, where will he end up next?

According to former NFL player Terrell Owens, Brady should be considered by the Dallas Cowboys. Appearing on the "Joe, Lo & Dibs show," the six-time Pro Bowler believes Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones should sign Brady. He added also that Jones may be having doubts on Prescott moving forward.

"They have a quarterback that's a free agent in Tom Brady. That's the next move," said Owens, a three-time NFL receiving touchdowns leader.

Seeing Jones sign Brady is a long shot for some critics. Most feel that Brady would rather stay in New England and retire there. Suggestions of seeing the three-time NFL MVP to the Los Angeles Chargers were also suggested, a place where he can both coach and play. Unfortunately,  Chargers legend Shawne Merriman sees this as a remote possibility, TMZ Sports reported.

For the Cowboys, their problems go beyond Prescott. They are still in search of a head coach to succeed Jason Garrett who was relieved after more than nine seasons in Dallas. ESPN reported that the New York Giants are allegedly considering Garrett to be an offensive coordinator on their end.

The future of Prescott remains up in the air as of this writing. But last month in a report from NBC Sports, the two-time Pro Bowler said that he was not at all surprised, knowing it was a business.

“. . .It’s the business. It’s my first time going through it. Not surprised by anything that comes from it — from the league, from the team, from whatever. Learning as I go.”

Owens' pitch to Jones is seen by most as something that will not prosper. But until the Cowboys name their new head coach and settle the score with Prescott, anything is possible.
