Why bringing on a veteran backup quarterback is probably not on the Cowboys’ agenda - David Moore, Kate Hairopoulos and Jon Machota, SportsDay
The Cowboys have needs throughout the roster to fill out this offseason through free agency and the draft. Would bringing in a veteran quarterback to backup Dak Prescott be a smart idea?
Should the Cowboys pursue a veteran backup quarterback in free agency? In addition to solidifying the position (Cooper Rush and Mike White are the current backups) would another veteran voice benefit Dak Prescott now that the offense has been handed over to 30-year-old Kellen Moore?
David Moore: No. There are better ways to distribute the money on this roster. Continue to develop Rush and White and if you don’t like their progress, plug in another young quarterback to develop. Prescott doesn’t need another voice in the room. He trusts and respects offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. Garrett and new quarterback coach Jon Kitna both played the position in the NFL. A veteran backup isn’t going to help Prescott’s growth.
