The Dallas Cowboys are going to be without Dak Prescott for this early portion of the 2022 season. Now, the big question is will they move forward with backup Cooper Rush or try and trade for a quarterback? It appears a decision has been made.
The Cowboys have reportedly decided they won't be trading for a quarterback. The NFC East franchise is more than happy with Cooper Rush for the time being.
A bit of a surprising decision for a team that expects to compete for a Super Bowl this season.
"As of now, #Cowboys do not plan to pursue significant trade for a QB barring [unforeseen] change, per source. Cowboys won't take any possibility completely off table, but with Dak Prescott's improved timeline and Cooper Rush's familiarity with offense, team feels it can be patient," said ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.
There have been rumors suggesting the Dallas Cowboys may have interest in San Francisco 49ers veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo's been demoted to the bench as Trey Lance gets his time to shine.
However, the Cowboys are clearly confident in Cooper Rush, at least for now. If Rush doesn't perform up to expectations, Dallas may reconsider.
