There is no shortage of information flying around Twitter when it comes to the Dallas Cowboys. The front office looked poised to go after a veteran quarterback to backup Tony Romo following the injury to Kellen Moore. Despite Moore not being a “veteran” presence himself. Once the news that Nick Foles had signed with Kansas City to reunite with Andy Reed, it looked as if the only other option was trading.
#Cowboys source says team no longer rushing to acquire vet QB. Can still give Tony Romo every 3rd day off. More reps to Prescott, Showers

Ed Werder of ESPN is reporting that the Cowboys are no longer pursuing a veteran seems quite odd to me considering everyone else has them looking at Josh McCown of the Browns and Mike Glennon of the Bucs. What is more likely is that the Cowboys aren’t interested in pursuing McCown or Glennon due to the cost.
The Cowboys need to find out what they have in Dak Prescott and Jameil Showers. This will give them an idea if they need to make quarterback a high priority in the 2017 NFL Draft or if the team believes that either quarterback have potential as faces of the franchise.

Ronald Leary has been a possible trading asset for a couple of seasons now with the addition of La’el Collins last year. The Saints make a viable trading option with their issues up front. If the Cowboys are looking to move Leary to Saints it should be for a pass rusher. The name that I would be on the look out for is Obum Gwacham. He is a second year player out of Oregon State who was claimed off waivers by the Saints last September.
