The Dallas Cowboys have found another quarterback gem in Cooper Rush, but is he worth more to them wearing a different uniform?
The Dallas Cowboys keep finding ways to win the football lottery. This year’s lucky number is seven.
Quarterback Cooper Rush has turned plenty of heads this preseason and more than likely landed himself on the 53-man roster. Originally Dallas had hoped to designated Rush to the practice squad but there is zero chance the young QB will clear waivers.
With Rush playing so well this may be the perfect time to find a trade partner in need of a young quarterback.
Prescott has already claimed the starting job in Dallas and shouldn’t be relinquishing the responsibilities any time soon. So why let the young talent waste away on the bench?
Rush seems more than capable of handling an NFL offense and its obvious other teams are taking notice.
Whether it’s the Jacksonville Jaguars who need to replace a busted draft pick or the New York Jets who just need a quarterback period.
There is a market for Cooper Rush and the Cowboys should take advantage now while his stock is high. Loading up on draft assets is always a good plan or even trading for proven talent to fill holes.
The defense could definitely use help with injuries to young corners and Linebacker Anthony Hitchens expected to miss significant time.
What is more important to Cowboys executives? Paying for an insurance plan you more than likely may never use?
Prescott is young and with that comes athleticism and durability. The kind of durability that hasn’t been seen in Dallas for a long time.
Rush shouldn’t see the field unless its mop up duty and a “victory formation”. Kellen Moore should be able to handle that very well.
So let’s bet the farm on Prescott’s health, the Cowboys did with former quarterback Tony Romo even with his clavicle being as fragile as a wishbone.
Dallas should find a safety to replace Barry Church, a edge rusher they desperately need, or a shut down corner that can help mold the young secondary.
The Dallas Cowboys have found something great in Cooper Rush and maybe in another lifetime he could be part of this team. The stock on Rush seems to be too much to let him be a back up and get nothing in return.
