Cowboys Camp: Why Dak & The QBs Are ‘Seeing Red’

Dallas Cowboys Camp: Why Dak Prescott & The QBs Are ‘Seeing Red’

FRISCO - Dak Prescott is “seeing red.”

No, not due to any contract-negotiations unhappiness; the Dallas Cowboys QB is seeing red, as are the other three quarterbacks on the roster of new coach Mike McCarthy, because in a drastic change from Cowboys tradition, Dak and his guys rolled out to Friday’s first on-field training camp practice here at The Star in Frisco wearing the different-colored jerseys.

It’s obviously a McCarthy-instituted policy designed to alert defenders that QBs - given their value and vulnerability - are not to be put in harm’s way.

McCarthy used this practice, as many NFL teams do, when he was in Green Bay. Hey, it worked OK for the likes of Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers ... and despite Dallas’ long tradition of doing no such thing - if it keeps $31.409 million man Prescott safe during practice session, it can work for the Cowboys.
