    Don't currently have any other backup QBs, except a cast-off we picked up.

    yeah we wont know anything in that area till we see preseason games, and who they wind up keeping.
    Also draft and FA still to come.
    Or Mike may like what he has seen of him lol.
    I think also rush would look better after TC with mike , JG never developed any QB's, they tended to
    get worse not better.

    It might just be a move to frustrate Jason Garrett's hostile takeover of the Giants.

    Mike White was a huge fail. He was one of Kellen Moore's pet projects.

    No surprise. Gotta save them $$$$ to make deals with the players Jerry is in hearts with.

    First it's Nussmeier not Mussehemier. Second what does making a couple of very low cost tender offers have to do with what they think about Cooper?

    You need to find something real to whine about.

    Having to sign Dak and Cooper it’s not like the Cowboys are going to have a lot of money to try and upgrade the backup QB position. They’ll likely bring in some scrub off the street or draft a QB late in the draft to compete with Rush. With Dak’s durability not having missed a start during his four year career, backup QB isn’t that big a concern. It will become a concern if Dak were to go down and Rush can’t do the job. We won’t know if he’s capable until he has to play.

    With wanting to get Prescott and Cooper signed and possible also getting Quinn there will be zero cap space so I very seriously doubt the Cowboys will go out and sign any vet QB. With all the actual needs I also seriously doubt the Cowboys will use any to the top 4 draft picks on a QB.

    Not everybody loved him. Just the people who had never heard of him before his first preseason game.

    I saw noodle-armed Rush play college ball for Central Michigan. Pray the Cowboys never need to depend on him.

    I think they will bring in some competition and see if Rush can beat them out. Wouldn’t be surprised to see a rookie and a low level vet come in. I just don’t see Mike handing the job to Rush.

    If Dak got seriously hurt, Jerry would probably try to get Kellen to suit up again.

    It would be interesting to see the Cowboys bring in someone like Bortles or Dalton (cheap) and draft a guy like Hurts.

    If Dak plays on the tag this year you can almost kiss him goodbye next offseason.

    As Nancy would say,
    "Just say No!" To Blake Bortles.

    He might be the worst #2 QB in the NFL.

    No clue what this FO sees in him except their own need to be right.

    when dalton had talent around him [2015] he helped his team to a 12-4 record and was an MVP candidate. I think the Bears, Pat, and a few other teams might take a look at him.he's probably a 1 to 2-year option while a team develops a rookie.

    Im not a big Bortles fan, but I think he will be cheap and an upgrade to Rush.

    2 mil is peanuts for a backup QB and he's got experience here. That means a lot for a backup who isn't getting 1st string QB snaps.

    White was a bust. So we sign Rush and draft another, hoping he can beat out Rush next year.
