Anyone that saw Dallas Cowboys rookie Dak Prescott play last season knows the kid is a machine.
And anyone that has his autographed merch may have proof of exactly that.
Because now it seems the NFL—or at least one ESPN reporter—is trying to make a scandal out of the fact that Prescott may have used a machine to sign autographs for collectors.
“Dak Prescott is being accused of using a machine to sign his autograph for a memorabilia company selling to collectors instead of signing himself,” Darren Rovell reported yesterday.
And then Steve Grad of Beckett Grading Services—whatever that is—refused to authenticate Prescott’s signature.
“They had a very machine-like feel. You could see the starts and stops. I immediately knew they were autopen,” Grad said. “I’ve never heard of a modern athlete doing this.”
Does anyone care about this other than those guys living in their mom’s basement framing old jerseys and checking for holographic stickers?
Trust me; every blue-blooded Cowboys fan wants Prescott to save his hand and fingers for the fall when he earns money on the contract he signed by hand. That seems pretty small in the grand scheme of trouble, especially when you look at the other Cowboy player's headline.
Cowboys LB Wilson Arrested For Assault With A Deadly Weapon
July Fourth may have been two days ago but the fireworks are really just beginning for one Dallas Cowboy.
That Cowboy would be linebacker Damien Wilson who is facing two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Police in Frisco, Texas says Wilson was arrested Tuesday night during a Fourth of July celebration at Toyota Stadium and was later released on bond.
But aside from that, those are the only details that have been released.
And Dallas needs to know considering Wilson has not missed a game for the Cowboys since the 24-year-old was drafted in the fourth round in 2015.
