There are a lot of rumors swirling on the internet about Dak Prescott right now. The quarterback is heading into another off-season where he'll attempt to land a long-term deal with the Dallas Cowboys.
This year is a little different because Dak is coming off of a devastating broken ankle. A broken ankle that required a follow up procedure in December and has led to speculation about his future.
According to Dallas sports show host Mike Bacsik, there's a chance Dak is franchise tagged and released by the Cowboys due to an unspecified issue with his broken ankle.
@MikeBacsik “I think there’s a possibility they release Dak Prescott in June...I know something that nobody else knows & it’s very tough to keep my mouth shut on this...I’m just telling you, I know something & the Cowboys know it to & Dak knows it to.” @1053SS @rjchoppy

Rumors about Dak's ankle aren't the only rumors making the rounds. His girlfriend Natalie Buffett's Valentine's Day Instagram post has sparked engagement rumors.
In the picture the two of them are standing on a beach somewhere, Dak does not have a boot on his giant broken ankle, and there appears as if there could be a ring on Natalie's left ring finger.
From Cowboys Wire:
And finally, the biggest rumor of all belongs to quarterback Dak Prescott, who appeared in this Instagram post, notably without a boot, with his girlfriend sporting a ring on the finger traditionally reserved for an engagement. If true, this should put to rest the man’s supposed fear of commitment to long-term contracts. Or at the least, people will see Prescott walking in the sand without shoes and it will ease their concerns about the current status of his health after ankle surgery.

I'm not convinced that they're engaged. Not yet anyway. There does appear to be something on her hand, but you would think with all of that franchise tag money you would be able to see the ring from space.
I also have a feeling Natalie would make a big deal about receiving her long-term contract with the Cowboys. We shall see. Her IG used to be private, so who knows?
We will also see if Dak's ankle is healthy and if he finally gets a commitment from Dallas.
