Prescott suffered a season-ending injury in 2020, so we’ll see if he can come back at 100% strength for Week 1 of the 2021 season.
In his 5-year career, Prescott has thrown for 17,634 yards, 106 touchdowns and 40 interceptions. He’s added 24 touchdowns as a rusher and 1 as a receiver. We’ll see how he fares during the course of his massive new contract.
