The Cowboys could consider bringing in QB Blake Bortles for QB2 competition

Yay or Nay?

With the Aaron Rodgers/Green Bay drama finally coming to an end, that also meant the end for Blake Bortles in Green Bay as the QB2. For the Cowboys, there’s still no great answer for the backup quarterback in Dallas. In the early stages of training camp, it seems that Garrett Gilbert has been the most impressive backup quarterback in camp, which confirms what we saw from the 2020 season.

When Cooper Rush was temporarily sidelined with a back injury, Gilbert and Ben DiNucci were the only other quarterbacks in Oxnard behind Dak Prescott. The sights and sounds from Oxnard suggest that Ben DiNucci looks eerily similar to how he looked in Philadelphia in the one start he had in 2020. Garrett Gilbert has had some good reps in camp, but handing him the QB2 job with no real competition would not be the wisest of plans for the Cowboys coaching staff.

Is that where Blake Bortles comes into play?
