The Cowboys will keep three quarterbacks on their roster: Dak Prescott, Cooper Rush, and Trey Lance. The addition of Lance also means the end of the road for Will Grier in Dallas after two seasons. Team officials spoke to Grier before the deal for Lance went public, according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.
They informed him he will be released next week, but they will do so after he plays every down in Saturday’s preseason game against the Raiders.
The final preseason game thus will serve as an audition for Grier with the other 31 teams.
The Cowboys claimed Grier off waivers from the Panthers in 2021, but he never played a down in two seasons in Dallas. His only career action came in his rookie season of 2019 with Carolina when he started two games and passed for 228 yards and threw four interceptions.
Through two games, Grier has gone 35 of 39 for 335 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He’s been sacked six times and has compiled an 86.7 passer rating.
