The Cowboys don't seem to be content with their current options for backup quarterback. After meeting with veteran free agent Jeff Driskel recently, Dallas is now bringing in Brett Hundley as a potential QB2 candidate.
Hundley's most recently played with the Cardinals from 2019-2020 and Seahawks in 2018. But the Cowboys' interest likely stems from his first stop in the NFL; 2015-2017 with the Packers under Mike McCarthy.
Free agent quarterback Brett Hundley is visiting the #Cowboys this week, per source. Dallas is looking at adding depth to the position and Hundley has familiarity with Mike McCarthy from Green Bay.
After joining Green Bay in 2015 as a 5th-round draft pick, Hundley spent that rookie year as the third-string QB and then moved into the backup role in 2016. He wound up starting nine games for the Packers in 2017 after an injury to Aaron Rodgers.
Like Driskel, Hundley brings far more experience to the QB2 competition than any of Garrett Gilbert, Ben DiNucci, or Cooper Rush. Gilbert and DiNucci each only have a single start in their careers from last season, while Rush still has none in his four NFL seasons.
Another interesting element in Brett's game is his athleticism. It's no surprise that his last two stops have been backing up mobile passers like Kyler Murray and Russell Wilson; another solid fit for the Cowboys with Dak Prescott as starter.
We don't know if the Cowboys have moved on from Jeff Driskel or are just broadening their search before making a decision. But by bringing in Brett Hundley now, it's a clear sign that they aren't ready to just hand the backup QB job over to the carryovers from 2020.
