Numero Cuatro: The Unsigned Quarterback Who Should Be Signed
Nick Foles is looking for a job. The Cowboys backup quarterback spots are incomplete, if you ask me. (You did ask.)
Sure, the Cowboys might have something in Kellen Moore. The super lefty has some upside.
Sure, the Cowboys might have something in Dak Prescott. But he’s a few years away from tangling off the training wheels.
As it stands now, I think Foles would be a better insurance policy than the two listed above, even if he were to join forces with the Cowboys in the month of August.
He’s young at 27 years of age. He has four years of professional NFL experience. He doesn’t look like a guy named “Kyle Orton,” which should ease Tony Romo’s nerves.
The 2012, Andy Reid third rounder owns a 87.3 quarterback rating. He has 53 touchdown passes to 27 interceptions with a completion percentage of 60.2. The six-foot-six quarterback needs just a little under 200 passing yards to ellipse the 10,000 yard mark.
Now, gaining Foles isn’t exactly landing on Park Place or Boardwalk in the Monopoly game. But with him on the roster, I think he could make opponents pay up big if they were to test him, which is in the realm of reality considering nobody is expecting Romo to play a full 16-game schedule.
