When the Dallas Cowboys signed Andy Dalton, it created a quarterback stir. What happens to the rest of the quarterbacks on the depth chart?
Prescott is a former fourth-round pick from the 2016 NFL Draft. He took the starting job in 2016 over Tony Romo and led the Cowboys to an NFC East title. He has started in all 64 games and is coming off a season where he threw for over 4,900 yards. He is going to be the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys after the team used the franchise tag on him. Both Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network have confirmed he will be starting.
The team waited until pick No. 231 overall in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft to take James Madison’s Ben DiNucci.
Head coach Mike McCarthy has a history of drafting quarterbacks, so this comes to no surprise. Waiting until the seventh round is the only part that will make fans scratch their heads. Then again, the Cowboys are in no rush looking for a franchise quarterback as the team appears to be on the path of locking up Prescott for the future. He appears to be set staying with the team; otherwise, he wouldn’t have been drafted.
Rush, 26, has 26 career snaps to his name in five games over a span of three years. His career stats include completing one pass on three attempts for two yards. The Cowboys wouldn’t have drafted a quarterback and signed Dalton if they trusted him. It has been reported that Cooper Rush has been already released. His NFL future appears to be with another team.
