The Dallas Cowboys might look to bring in a veteran to give the quarterback position competition.
With Dak Prescott and Cooper Rush the lone options at quarterback, Dallas doesn’t have much in the way of experience. With the QB being the most important position, it’s kind of scary to see very limited experience there. We saw the result of that in 2017 as the team struggled to get going on offense.
I am not saying a veteran would have changed the outcome from the 2017 season. However, it might have helped Prescott learn from his mistakes through the season. He could have given him pointers from the outside on how he should handle things.
Will Dallas look to bring in a veteran this off-season at QB?
Let’s just cross off the big-name players like Drew Brees, Jimmy Garoppolo, and Kirk Cousins. You have a better shot at winning back-to-back lotteries than to see any of them show up in Dallas.
The group we would be looking at are names like Josh McCown, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Matt Moore, and Blaine Gabbert. Most options would be a good option, but only if they can get them cheap. We are not looking for a starting QB, Dallas is just looking for experience and someone to push Rush in camp.
Rush showed positive signs during training camp but hasn’t had the experience in the regular season. That is not a bad thing, you don’t want your backup playing much, if at all, in the regular season. If they do, you are looking at an injury or failure from your starting QB.
I think Rush has a lot of upside, but at the same time, I would like to see a little veteran leadership at the position. That is what helped Prescott during his rookie season. He had Tony Romo and Mark Sanchez to talk with during the season when he needed it.
What would you like Dallas to do at QB behind Dak?
