5 Backup QB Options the Cowboys Should Target in Free Agency

The 2017 NFL free agency period is right around the corner so now is a good time to look at available backup QB options the Dallas Cowboys could target. You never want the backup quarterback to play in a meaningful game, but a quality quarterback behind Dak Prescott on the depth chart is crucial.

 

When discussing backup QB options, I hear a lot of people settling for Mark Sanchez or Kellen Moore, even both. But neither one really inspires a lot of confidence in me, and we can forget about Tony Romo. I’m almost 100% certain he will be with another team next season.

Sanchez was absolutely horrendous against his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles. Yes, Sanchez seems to have a bond with Dak Prescott, but that doesn’t mean much if he can’t handle his responsibilities on the field as well. Kellen Moore on the other hand is one of offensive coordinator Scott Linehan’s favorites, so I wouldn’t rule out him returning on a veteran minimum deal. But, I still believe there are better backup QB options available in free agency.

I would like to see a younger, veteran backup QB who possesses a skill set similar to Dak Prescott. The Cleveland Browns recently released Josh McCown, but don’t expect to see McCown on this list. I think age and injuries are starting to catch up to him.

To see the veteran free agent quarterbacks I would like to see as a backup for the Dallas Cowboys next season, use the arrows to navigate through this list.

    Brian Martin: I think we are at the same place with K Moore as we were last year at this time. The Dallas management/coaches decided K Moore was their best option for 2nd team QB, all things considered. Scott Linehan had a lot of confidence in him. I truly believe if he had not got hurt he would have been the starter when Romo went down and would have done fairly well and won a bunch of games. He has a lot of the skills/abilities Dak Prescott has such as poise, QB smarts, accuracy, and game management skills. We would likely be talking about

      George, I would be okay with the Cowboys bringing back Kellen Moore. But, I would also like to see them bring in someone to compete with him. Moore personally wouldn’t be my top choice to be the backup QB, but I think he probably could handle the job.

        I agree with the idea of competition plus sometimes you want to keep three QBs if you don’t need the third position for someone else on the team.

          George, I would actually be surprised if Kellen Moore isn’t back with the Cowboys in some capacity next season.

  • deal with it

    here’s some craziness-
    we take Gar from N.E. for our #2 & a retro $1 Million “if he plays” kinda deal.
    Romo could get a ring & never have to play but if Tom goes down for a game Tony has a quick out 2 T,E, deal…. that could work.he already knows Marty B,he’d have J.E.,&then there’s Gronk. I could see nothing better……….

      That’s definitely some outside the box thinking. The only problem with that is the only reason Romo wants to leave the Cowboys is because he wants to start somewhere.
