The Cowboys are no longer rushing to acquire a veteran quarterback, a team source tells Ed Werder of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The Cowboys, of course, were heavily linked to free agent Nick Foles before he signed with the Chiefs on Wednesday night. Dallas has also been linked to trade targets like Josh McCown of the Browns and Mike Glennon of the Buccaneers.
Dallas was anxious to get a veteran backup on the roster following Kellen Moore‘s broken ankle, particularly since they were planning on giving Tony Romo every third day off in practice. However, the team has apparently changed course, believing that they can simply give more reps to rookie Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers.
The Buccaneers say they are not interested in trading Glennon anyway and that makes sense given the lack of experience they have at QB outside of the 6’7″ signal caller. One would imagine that the Browns are open to trading McCown given that they have RGIII under center and are in a rebuilding year. In any event, neither team should expect Dallas to blow up their phones this week.
