Dallas Cowboys: Free agent quarterback could be perfect back up

With the Dallas Cowboys potentially down to one quarterback this offseason, adding this recent free agent could be a perfect fit in Dallas. Dak Prescott is the future at quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. That much is clear. But the depth chart behind Prescott is a lot more murky. Tony Romo, Mark Sanchez and Kellen […] Dallas Cowboys: Free agent quarterback could be perfect back up - The Landry Hat - The Landry Hat - A Dallas Cowboys Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.
5 free agent quarterbacks the Cowboys could target: the options include some familiar names

5 free agent quarterbacks the Cowboys could target: the options include some familiar names

It's not how anyone expected it to go down, but the Cowboys are once again in need of a backup quarterback. Last season, Dallas drafted Dak Prescott in the fourth round, thinking he'd be a developmental project. Now, he's established himself as the present and future of the franchise. But the unique and diverse quarterback room he learned in last season could be in for an overhaul. Ten-year starter Tony Romo is expected to sort out a new path, via trade or release. Backups Kellen Moore and Mark Sanchez will be free agents when the new league year starts March 9. Let's take at five possible...

Who is going to be Dak Prescott's backup? 10 QBs the Cowboys could target in the NFL draft

Who is going to be Dak Prescott's backup? 10 QBs the Cowboys could target in the NFL draft

Before Dak Prescott, Jerry Jones didn't have much success drafting quarterbacks...because he rarely drafted quarterbacks.Dallas has picked a QB a grand total of three times since 1993: Quincy Carter in 2001, Stephen McGee in 2009 and then Prescott in 2016. That means out of a total of 213 draft picks in a 25-year span, 1.4 percent of them were quarterbacks.Tony Romo's stats with the team is uncertain (will they be willing to keep him on the bench as a backup while he is a $24.7 million hit to the team's cap?). Mark Sanchez is a free agent. Kellen Moore is as well, and he's coming off a lost...

Cowboys Work Out Six Players Including Potential Backup Quarterback

Cowboys Work Out Six Players Including Potential Backup Quarterback

The process of roster-building is never done in the NFL. The Dallas Cowboys were busy today working out players for next season. One position the Cowboys might be in the market for during the 2017 season is backup quarterback. We know Dak Prescott is the starter, we think that Tony Romo will be playing somewhere else, and we hope that Mark Sanchez will be, too. That would leave a huge hole behind Dak. Today, the Cowboys worked out quarterback Garrett Gilbert. Who? Okay, it’s unlikely that Gilbert would be the Cowboys primary backup quarterback this upcoming season, but he may be a third...
Philadelphia writer: Cowboys offense is 'promising,' but can Dallas sustain success for 2017?

Philadelphia writer: Cowboys offense is 'promising,' but can Dallas sustain success for 2017?

Before the 2016 season started, the Cowboys-Eagles rivalry featured one main storyline: the battle of the rookie QBs. Dak Prescott and the Cowboys' 13-3 campaign quickly escaped from being compared to Carson Wentz and the Eagles' 7-9 season. The teams technically split their contests, but the Cowboys' 29-23 overtime home win was the only one they took seriously. Dallas rested Ezekiel Elliott and Sean Lee ahead of the postseason in a Jan. 1 trip, took its other starters out early and played Mark Sanchez behind center in most of the 27-13 loss. We caught up with Eagles beat writer Zach Berman...
Kellen Moore could be the man under center next year if Dak Prescott goes down

Kellen Moore could be the man under center next year if Dak Prescott goes down

David Moore, Cowboys beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the team in a live chat recently. Here are some highlights:Question: What does the backup QB situation look like for next year -- Kellen Moore? Mark Sanchez? Both?David Moore: The Cowboys were comfortable going into this season with Moore as the backup quarterback. I've got to believe they would feel the same going into this season. His value is certainly greater here than elsewhere given the club's familiarity and faith in him. Not sure both he and Sanchez return, but wouldn't...
