Stephen Jones said last week he wants Dak Prescott to earn league MVP honors this season, giving the Cowboys even more reason to pay the quarterback a deal he “deserves.” Prescott wants even more than to be the best in the league this season.

He wants to become “the best quarterback that the Cowboys ever had.” That’s saying something considering Hall of Famers Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman wore the star on their helmets, and Tony Romo owns most of the team’s passing marks.

Prescott’s comment came after he was asked about the pressure of playing for a contract this season.

“It’s not any pressure,” Prescott said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “I want to be the best I can. I want to be the best quarterback that the Cowboys ever had. All that stuff comes when you play the game well.”

He wants another look. play. Dak and Zeke call out their performances (0:44). A year ago, the Cowboys were 1-1 after two games with Prescott as quarterback and they won 11 games in a row. Prescott isn't about to panic.

Roger Staubach says the future of the quarterback position for the Dallas Cowboys is much more secure with Dak Prescott in the picture, though it remains "all about winning football games." The boy who wanted to be a Cowboy got there.

Prescott, a fourth-round pick in 2016, has a $630,000 base salary this season. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has promised an “extraordinary contract” and executive vice president Stephen Jones said last week that “it’s going to be as he deserves.”

The Cowboys can reward Prescott with a new deal after this season.

Arizona Cardinals: C+: The Cardinals didn't make much of a splash by hiring Steve Wilks to replace Bruce Arians, but they've done the best they could hope for replacing Carson Palmer at quarterback, short of signing Kirk Cousins, by signing Sam Bradford and drafting Josh Rosen. Recruiting Larry Fitzgerald to return says a lot about the intentions for 2018, but the team will miss John Brown and Tyrann Mathieu. The team tried to address those areas in the draft with wide receiver Christian Kirk in the second round and cornerback Christian Campbell late. The big-money addition of Justin Pugh to the offensive line also shouldn't be overlooked for a team that struggled to protect the quarterback last season. Offseason report card for every NFL team
