The question now is whether Dalton will push Dak Prescott for the starting quarterback job.
The Cowboys currently have the franchise tag on Prescott and want to sign him to a new long-term deal before the July 15 deadline. Suddenly, it’s a crowded group behind the two-time Pro Bowl starter.
Former Cowboys wide receiver Dez Byrant says the organization should put their resources and support behind Prescott.
Nothing against Andy dalton because I think he’s a great player..but the cowboys are extremely out of line… Pay Dak… I watched the cowboys pay Tony Twice once without a winning rec… I guess the cowboys viewing the QB position a plug in piece because of the dominant offense

Looking at the first four NFL seasons for both quarterbacks shows they are very comparable.
Andy Dalton first 4 years in NFL
99 TDS/66 INTS
4 playoff trips
Dak first 4 years in NFL
97 TDS/36 INTS
2 playoff trips
Dalton is a very capable player
