It must be noted that signing Prescott in 2021 is not a bad option if the Cowboys are looking to save some cash in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic when the team is expected to lose money due fewer or no fans in the stands at AT&T Stadium.
But they will have to be creative.
As of now, they don't have money under the cap to afford a franchise tag of $37.7 million.
But that is an issue for next year.
Prescott is playing on the tag in 2020.
