Earlier today, the Cowboys release their only backup quarterbacks for their 53-man roster, like Dak Prescott isn’t made out of paper. 

While both Rush and Grier have been released, Todd Archer of ESPN points out that, “this does not mean they won’t return.” Meaning if Dak were to get hurt, the two will most likely be their go-to.

Dallas releasing both quarterbacks might be for one of two reasons: One possibility is that the Cowboys are keeping an eye on the quarterback market to see who will prevail. Dallas is intrigued by the possibility that a quarterback will be unemployed as a result of today’s events. A Cowboys fan commented on Instagram, “Our management is stupid.” Due to the minimum amount of data said by the Cowboys in this event.

It’s also conceivable that the Cowboys let both quarterbacks go to give themselves some flexibility in deciding how to assemble their 53-man roster before finally bringing one or both back. Jordan Dajani said, “Dallas is attempting to figure out its quarterback position.” The Cowboys will most likely not have a backup QB in week one.
