Dallas Cowboys star Dak Prescott’s home has a unique feature: a 55-yard artificial turf football field in the backyard.
The two-time Pro Bowler owns property in Prosper, Texas, which is not far from the Cowboys’ practice facility in Frisco. Throughout the NFL offseason, Prescott’s teammates will frequent his backyard and train.
«It’s amazing that they feel comfortable enough to use my field,» Prescott said Wednesday fresh off a backyard workout with former teammate Ezekiel Elliott.

After seven seasons and three Pro Bowl selections, the Cowboys decided to part ways with Elliott.

His production slowed last season and Tony Pollard became the team’s top running back option. The decision to part with Elliott saved Dallas $11 million.
Elliott has yet to sign with another NFL team, but that hasn’t stopped Prescott from training with his «best friend.»
«That’s my best friend,» Prescott said. «We’ll keep working, we’ll keep pushing each other. He looks great. I’m excited for any opportunity that comes his way, and I’m always his biggest fan.»
The running back position has been largely devalued across the league as teams weigh whether to extend big contract offers to veteran ball carriers. In addition to Elliott, Dalvin Cook, Leonard Fournette and Kareem Hunt are looking for their next contract.
Meanwhile, the Giants and star Saquon Barkley appear to be at a crossroads when it comes to the star running back’s future in New York.
«I think the running back position is tough,» Prescott said. «All those guys are dynamic running backs, they can still play and they have a lot left in the tank. I hope they all make the right decision and not just jump on whatever is fast. You are never surprised by what this league does. You always have to understand that It’s a business and try not to take anything personally.»
Prescott also noted that wide receiver Jalen Tolbert puts on an impressive show during his workouts this offseason.
«He’s eager to get better,» Prescott said. «Every time I ask, he’s the first to answer. He’s there with the right focus.»
