Following an incident that took place with cornerback Trevon Diggs, Dak Prescott stepped to the forefront to address the media. The Cowboy quarterback had been called out by the younger player, but he wanted to clear the air that there were no disrespect or misunderstandings.
“That’s a guy that I spend a lot of time with, we’re always going back and forth,” Prescott asserted, insisting it was a minor dust-up. “When you’re competing at a high level and you believe your side is better than the other side that’s mutual and that’s iron sharpening iron. Nobody gets upset about words being said.”
The “words” Dak Prescott is referring to were uttered when the signal caller made some remarks to the effect that teammates needed to be mindful of hits on the QB. As the guy in the red jersey, Prescott is considered a franchise player, and it’s not worth him risking an injury by taking any unnecessary punishment.
That didn’t stop Diggs from getting a little heated during a play, and telling Dak Prescott to shut his “b**ch ass up”.
While these types of occurrences take place in every training camp around the League, it seems like Jerry Jones’ team always seems to find a way to make the tabloid talk. And that goes the same for Prescott, as he enters a transitional year.
Dak Prescott faces a ton of scrutiny in 2023 as he enters his eighth NFL season. He only played in 12 games last season, going 8-4 as a starter, while throwing for 2860 yards and 25 touchdowns. Unfortunately, his team is measured by Super Bowl success, and the signal-caller hasn’t come close to lifting a Lombardi Trophy yet. The Cowboys made it to the NFC Divisional Round last year but looked weak and ineffective in a 17-13 loss to the Eagles.

However, Prescott seemed to handle this fabricated controversy with flying colors.
Diggs is a former star at Alabama who was a Cowboys second-round pick. He’ll be counted on to help their secondary stay one of the best against the pass. The Dallas D finished in the NFL’s top ten in average passing yards surrendered (8th) in 2022.
