Cowboys' Prescott signs $31M tag, still time for longer deal
Dak Prescott plans to be at training camp with the Dallas Cowboys, if and when it starts, on the richest one-year contract in franchise history.

Despite missing the playoffs again last season, Prescott had career bests with 4,902 yards passing and 30 touchdowns.
McCarthy prepping for Cowboys job from old home of Green Bay
Mike McCarthy has spent most of his first offseason as coach of the Dallas Cowboys at home in Green Bay. Meantime, McCarthy sure is ready to get back to the Cowboys' facility north of Dallas, particularly because live offseason practices would be happening now under normal circumstances. I have been with my family the whole time, except for maybe the first 10 days of the pandemic, McCarthy said Wednesday in his first teleconference with reporters since the draft. After a year away from the game following his firing in Green Bay, McCarthy replaced most of the coaching staff and geared up for the draft. After winning a Super Bowl with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay nine years ago, McCarthy knows the development of his relationship with Prescott is among the highest priorities.
