5 Backup QB Options the Cowboys Should Target in Free Agency

If my memory serves me right, the had a grade on coming out of college. Obviously things didn't work out then to make Smith a Cowboy, but maybe the stars are aligning for a second chance.

Geno Smith is probably the most similar to out of all the backup QB options available this . That makes him a desirable candidate Prescott's backup in 2017.

Like Mike Glennon, Geno Smith is probably looking for a chance to start somewhere, but I don't see that happening and for several reasons.

First off, I can't remember a less fortunate QB than Smith. As a rookie he was dropped into a terrible situation with the and unfortunately things just continued to get worse from there.

Every time it looked as if Smith was going to get a chance to prove himself, disaster struck. His teammate broke his jaw which led the Jets to go with as their starting QB. Then, when he finally received another opportunity towards the end of the , he tore his ACL.

Smith's ACL likely means his market value will drop, which means the Dallas Cowboys could be able to sign him to a team friendly deal and still get a player with immense upside. Of course, Smith might not be ready until just before , if then. But taking a chance on him is a risk I could be on board with.
