Why Cowboys' Trey Lance trade has no bearing on Dak Prescott's future (yet)

The Dallas Cowboy sent shockwaves around the NFL on Friday when they traded a fourth-round pick for 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. 

Lance opened preseason as San Francisco's third-string QB and now gets fresh start where he can compete for the backup role and develop without the pressure of being a former No. 3 overall pick. 

pretty much every decision he makes under center -- is scrutinized more than any other quarterback in the league. 

Already facing pressure to make a deep playoff run, the Cowboys have essentially subjected Prescott to more criticism and pressure by acquiring Lance. 

Ultimately, though, those variables are insignificant. Not only does Lance need major development before he can dream of challenging Prescott for the starting job, but Dak is cemented as the Cowboys' franchise quarterback. 

That isn't conducive to competing for a Super Bowl, and his contract includes a no-trade and no-tag clause.  

The only feasible solution to lowering that cap hit is signing him to an extension by March. 

Lance will remain the backup for the foreseeable future. Unless he develops into starter material and the Cowboys flip him for a potential day 2 pick down the road.
