Quarterback Dak Prescott has picked up another one of Tony Romo's former jobs while adding to his growing list of marketing endorsement deals.

Prescott, who replaced Romo as the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys last season, will headline DirectTV's new ad campaign for the NFL Sunday Ticket.

Romo was featured prominently in the ad over the past few years, joining the successful runs of Peyton Manning and Eli Manning.

Romo has left the NFL and Prescott has become the face of the Cowboys and one of the media darlings of the league following a fantastic rookie season to go along with a seemingly spotless image.

He will be joined by Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown and Atlanta Falcons linebacker Vic Beasley in DirecTV's upcoming ad campaign, along with "one of Hollywood's biggest football fans," per the official AT&T news release.

"Playing for the Cowboys was truly an honor this past season," Prescott said in the release. "But taking part in the NFL Sunday Ticket commercials I grew up watching has been surreal. I'm pumped to become a member of the DirectTV family."

DirectTV joins Prescott's growing list of endorsements that include Adidas, Champ Sports, BeatsbyDre, Nicholas Air, Pepsi, Tostitos and Campbell's Chucky Soup.
