NFL players aren’t exactly a big part of the agriculture sector.
But that’s not the case with one of the league’s top-ranked players, quarterback Dak Prescott.
PepsiCo has given Prescott a full year to cultivate the grass that would be used in his new NFL-branded stadium in Dallas.
Preston, who is the team’s all-time leading passer with 5,719 yards and 33 touchdowns, is the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft.
But Prescott has yet to show that he can thrive in the NFL.
Prescott has been plagued with injuries in his short career and struggled to overcome his lack of experience.
He has played in just two games, both against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Cowboys finished 1-3 with Prescott and Dak both playing in the game.
The season-ending injury to Romo hurt Prescott’s season, but the team has been able to find ways to get him healthy.
Heading into his fourth season in the league, Prescott has more than 50 touchdown passes and has thrown for over 3,000 yards in five of his past six seasons.
But this year has been the exception.
He’s not been as effective as he was a year ago.
