“My confidence is through the roof with him,” Prescott said, according to the Morning News. “When he came in, I had high expectations for him because of the guy that I initially met in the offseason when we were throwing and when we were getting together. You could just tell the type of guy he is, the type of player and competitor he is. So my expectations for him rose immediately from that meeting. And then to get into training camp, to see what he’s done, to see what he can do, i think he’s had as good of a camp as anyone has, any position on this team. It’s exciting. As I’ve said before, he’s going to play a huge role in our success, not only this year but in the future. I’m excited for it. I’m excited for him.”
