Add Dak Prescott to the list of NFC East quarterbacks under scrutiny for off-field merchandising practices. Beckett, a company that evaluates trading cards, has accused Prescott of using a machine to “sign” his autograph, ESPN’s Darren Rovell reports.
An authenticator for Beckett told Rovell that five cards examined by the company had a very “machine-like” feel to them.
An image of Prescott’s signatures provided to ESPN does appear to be lacking in flow.
The allegation against Prescott comes on the heels of a potentially more substantial scandal involving Eli Manning. The Giants quarterback is part of a civil suit in which he is accused of instructing an equipment manager to obtain equipment that was passed off as game worn. A trial that was supposed to begin in September has been postponed indefinitely.
