Does Cooper Rush have a higher percentage of the will to win than Cowboys starting QB Dak Prescott? That’s a debate for another millennia. What’s most important right now is tipping our caps and acknowledging the continuity at The Star, as Jerry Jones and Co. have managed to bring Rush back for another two seasons after he steadied the ship in 2022.
Last year, Rush kept the Cowboys afloat after Prescott’s devastating Week 1 injury, reeling off four consecutive victories and giving Eagles fans something they thought counted as bragging rights all year long before the Cowboys ripped their hearts out at Jerry World late in the season.
The conversation about whether he deserves to be a starter in this league has once again been placed on the backburner as of Friday morning, though.
What we know Gardner Minshew, who did a more erratic jobabout Rush is that he’s a more-than-capable backup who can steer the ship in the event of an emergency. in 2022 in Philly, has already signed with the Colts (and his old OC Shane Steichen). It makes sense that Rush followed that path and re-upped with his comfort zone in Dallas on Friday morning.
Dallas Cowboys QB Cooper Rush re-signs as Dak Prescott’s backup
It’s a $6 million maximum deal for Rush, but at the very least his first season and signing bonus are fully guaranteed.
More information to come on the contract’s breakdown, but Rush has a higher ceiling than previous Cowboys backups of the modern era, and his steady hand signed a pretty crucial contract on Friday morning.
