Dak Prescott might be an option for the Broncos in 2025

The Denver Broncos could not afford to pursue Kirk Cousins during free agency this year and while the team considered budget options like Sam Darnold, even his price tag proved to be too steep for Denver.

With the NFL draft now just under one month away, it’s looking like the Broncos might go into 2024 with Jarrett Stidham and a rookie as their top two quarterback options.

The best free agent options are already all off the board, and Denver has limited salary cap space remaining. The Broncos will be able to start fresh with a better cap situation in 2025, though, and a notable quarterback could be headed for unrestricted free agency next spring.

The Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott are not expected to get an extension done this offseason, according to a report from NFL Network (via Cowboys Wire). Prescott, 30, is now entering the final year of his deal with no extension on deck.

Denver is projected to have more than $93 million in available cap space next year, so if Prescott becomes available, the team would be able to afford him. The veteran quarterback has completed 67% of his passes for 29,459 yards with 202 touchdowns against 74 interceptions through his first eight seasons in the NFL. Prescott has also rushed for 1,884 yards and 28 scores.

The list of quarterbacks scheduled to become free agents in 2025 also includes Jared Goff (29), Tua Tagovailoa (26) and Jordan Love (25). Goff and Love seem likely to get extensions from the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers, respectively, but Tagovailoa’s future with the Miami Dolphins is uncertain.

If the Broncos do not land a top quarterback in this year’s NFL draft, the team could swing big in free agency next spring. Prescott might end up being the most notable QB on the market in 2025, so his status in Dallas is worth watching in the coming months.
