Why it makes sense:
If Jerry Jones has enough hubris to think he can find a better option than Prescott, who was in the midst of a historic season prior to Sunday’s devastating injury, you just know Prescott will be champing at the bit to extract as much revenge against the Cowboys as possible.
Enter the Giants.
It isn’t a coincidence that Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett was one of the first people rushing to Prescott’s side to check on his former quarterback. Garrett is largely responsible for Prescott’s development into one of the NFL’s most gifted and promising young quarterback.
Prescott averaged 3,944 yards, 24 touchdowns, and nine interceptions under Garrett’s tutelage through the first four seasons of his career and reached the playoffs twice.
Likewise, if the Giants, who are averaging just 16.2 points per game do not start winning games, and Daniel Jones does not figure out how to conquer his turnover problem, New York might be in the market for an upgrade at quarterback.
The Giants would also offer Prescott a supporting cast that includes Saquon Barkley who, when healthy, is an All-Pro caliber running back, potentially explosive wide receiver Darius Slayton, and athletic pass-catching tight end Evan Engram at his disposal.
There are likely few situations that would entice Prescott more than reuniting with Garrett, who helped him reach a pair of Pro Bowls with the opportunity to face Jones and the Cowboys twice each season.
