Dak Prescott Injury
0

Prescott suffered a compound fracture of his ankle and other injuries in Dallas' game Sunday night. Prescott had rejected all Dallas contract offers during the offseason. If he had taken them, he and his descendents would not have money worries. But, as was his choice, he rejected the offers as not sufficient compensation and was playing on the franchise tag. He will receive compensation while injured but, with an injury of this type, there will be significant doubt  next year of his ability to play and contract offers will be commensurately lower. Will this signal the refusal of players in the future to play on a tag to avoid a situation such as this? I'm thinking it might.

I remember that same thing happened to Henry Melton, and the decision to play on the tag ended up costing him tens of millions of dollars as he was never the same. As soon as I heard of Prescott's injury, I immediately thought of Allen Robinson, who will most likely be tagged next season. Things could get even more complicated if Andy Dalton plays well.
