Buy or sell? Judging 6 Dallas Cowboys training camp narratives
As the Dallas Cowboys prepare to kick off training camp, here are six narratives we are either buying or selling entering camp.
The Dallas Cowboys will begin training camp in Oxnard, California this Saturday, July 27th. As we enter the preseason, camp will move to Frisco, Texas mid-August and concludes when NFL teams must cut down their rosters from 90-men to just 53 by August 31st.
Entering into the league’s biggest offseason training event, the Cowboys have several lingering questions that need to be answered and numerous storylines to follow. Some of which are critical to the team’s success in 2019, while others are not.
With that in mind, here are six narratives circling America’s Team which we are either buying or selling prior to the start of training camp.
Sell: The Cowboys backup quarterback situation
There’s been much ado about nothing made of the backup quarterback situation in Dallas. Behind starter Dak Prescott on the depth chart are unproven passers Cooper Rush and Mike White. Neither appears ready to become an NFL starting quarterback anytime soon.
Without Prescott under center, the season is all but lost anyway. The presence of Rush or White will not make a difference. Unless Dallas is able to bring in a Nick Foles-type, the team’s current backups are simply placeholders on the roster and therefore interchangeable. Because of their looming contract extensions, I doubt the Cowboys want to dish out the cash needed to bring in a more experienced veteran passer.
Whether the Cowboys keep both White and Rush or choose to keep just one, the real story is Dallas must keep Prescott upright and healthy. If not, the team’s official website might start doing their draft shows in November.
