    The fact that the Cowboys were about to give up assets for a backup position considering the other holes on this team (um hello , nice to see that you aren't here) was perplexing to anyone with a brain (sorry , you're disqualified).

    This news also suggests that the Cowboys are:

    They may have called off the search but they still need a veteran QB. Prescott and Showers are very unlikely to be ready to be the 2nd team QB for Dallas in 2016. The 2nd team QB position is a critical position for the team, especially with T Romo's injury history and age. They must ASAP find a good veteran QB. The veteran needs to learn the Dallas offense/playbook during the preseason. In the mean time it is great that Prescott and Showers are getting extra reps. This will help with their learning and development for the future.


    Cowboys will be fine. I like the idea of the younger players getting reps, instead of leaning on re-treads.
