The Dallas Cowboys have been busy as of late in trying to find a backup quarterback with some experience. Dak Prescott is expected to take all of the team’s snaps at the game’s most important position as long as he’s heatlhy, but establishing a legitimate backup is definitely a good idea. As of now the Cowboys have Garrett Gilbert, Cooper Rush, and Ben DiNucci to choose from. They were previously linked to veteran Jeff Driskel, but he ultimately wound up signing with the Houston Texans. They also brought in J.T. Barrett for a tryout without signing him.
Recently they were connected to Brett Hundley who Mike McCarthy worked with during their time together with the Green Bay Packers. It appears as if a signing won’t be happening any time soon, though.

Perhaps the Cowboys are just kicking tires on quarterbacks right now to figure out how they feel with a bit of time before training camp. As noted, they have a few options already so it would only make sense to bring someone in if they truly felt passionate about it.
Time will tell if the Cowboys do end up bringing in another veteran to work behind Dak. For now, though, the job of QB2 appears to be Garrett Gilbert’s to lose.
