Dallas is attempting to figure out its quarterback position in an unconventional way.
The Dallas Cowboys are in the process of figuring out their quarterback room and it came in a shocking way when they announced they released quarterbacks Cooper Rush and Will Grier, per ESPN, making Dak Prescott the lone signal-caller on the team.
While both Rush and Grier have been released, Todd Archer of ESPN points out that this does not mean they won’t return.
The team is likely watching the quarterback market to see where the chips land while having some leeway with how they construct their 53-man roster, before they ultimately bring one or both back.
Grier is subject to waivers while Rush is not. Archer believes it’s likely both signal-callers will be back with the Cowboys in some form.
In 2019, Grier started two games and completed 28 of 52 pass attempts for 228 yards, no touchdowns, and four interceptions. He added seven rush attempts for 22 yards.
Rush has spent the majority of his career with the Cowboys, and played in five games with one start last season. In all, he completed 30 of 47 passes for 422 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception.
Both players are back.
