Cowboys Rumors: Dak Prescott Contract, Xavier Woods Update, Injury Report & Earl Thomas to Dallas?

published 2 weeks ago by Chat Sports

Cowboys Rumors dive into Dak Prescott contract talks, Xavier Woods’ chances of playing in their season opener, and an update on Earl Thomas. Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson signed a long-term deal over the weekend with an average annual value of $39 million, which is right around the yearly amount Dak Prescott is looking to earn. However, Tom Downey says the Watson deal could really affect the guaranteed money in Prescott’s next contract. Safety Xavier Woods left the Cowboys’ scrimmage last week and has since been dealing with groin and ankle injuries, leaving his status for Week 1 up in the air. However Jerry Jones said today he fully expects Woods to play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Tom also has an update on injuries to Jourdan Lewis and Luke Gifford, who were listed as game-time decisions for the season opener. Earl Thomas is still on the free agent market after his falling-out with the Baltimore Ravens, and while the Cowboys faithful have been clamoring for his signing, there appears to be no serious interest inside the organization. Part of that is due to the addition of Brandon Carr, who may not play Sunday but figures to play a role as the season progresses. Ezekiel Elliott told Pro Football Talk that some players will engage in a peaceful protest during Sunday’s national anthem, much to the dismay of some Cowboys fans. While some will refuse to support the team, Tom lets you know why that is the wrong choice. Jerry Jones is worried about losing fans, but he also knows that the Is Michael Brockers a fan of the Cowboys Report?? The Rams defensive tackle said that he’s watched Cowboys training camp videos on YouTube as extra preparation for Sunday’s game. He shouldn’t rely on those to figure out who the team leaders will be; head coach Mike McCarthy said the Cowboys will have weekly captains to give more players the opportunity to lead the team.
