Frisco – The Dallas Cowboys have two reserve QBs.
Yet they don’t have anything at all.
Who stuck to the 53-man roster in a decision dictated by Tuesday’s NFL cut deadline?
Are you Greer? no.
Cooper Rush? no.
Who will be back on Wednesday? Both nominees to be No. 2 QB behind Dak Prescott…by the coaching staff.
There is logic here.
As with waiving kicker Brett Maher, the Cowboys believed they could cut these guys off with the belief that they wouldn’t leave via waivers claims or otherwise.
That plan worked. Now they can both continue to compete…without Dallas having to take a 53-on-1 spot…until it’s time to play.

Grier, who was working through a thigh injury, showed more action in Friday’s preseason win over the Seahawks.
On his autobiography, Rush pulled off a massive win in Minnesota in 2021 while playing for Prescott, and in that game in Seattle he got the start, and then got off fast — suggesting coaches saw enough positives.
Like most NFL teams, if the No. 1 QB drops, this team is in trouble. So with Prescott, who is trying to beat the ‘match hangover’ He has a level of talent and drive to attack that no one on this list can match.
Hope then? That’s on top of any congratulations to Winner #2 that comes with wanting to never see him play in 2022.
And now? They cannot play a game. Because while they’re back here in the building, Rush and Grier are still technically not on the list.
