Quarterback depth behind Dak Prescott turned out to be important for the Dallas Cowboys last season, as Prescott went down in Week 5 and Andy Dalton missed Week 8 due to a concussion. That cleared the way for rookie Ben DiNucci and Garrett Gilbert to both earn starts for the Cowboys in 2020.
However, with Dalton walking this offseason, Dallas is interested in adding QB depth to compete for the backup role behind Prescott.
Head coach Mike McCarthy said the team "definitely" wants to add another option to the QB room. Dallas currently has Gilbert, DiNucci and Cooper Rush and on the roster behind Prescott. It's hard not hard to imagine the Cowboys addressing QB in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft
Dalton shouldered most of the starting responsibilities with Prescott out, notching nine starts for Dallas. His departure leaves the Cowboys without an experienced backup but options on the free agent market are limited at this point.
The Cowboys have two picks in each of Rounds 3, 4 and 6, which gives Dallas the opportunity to take a chance on a QB who could compete with Gilbert and DiNucci for QB2.
