The Dallas Cowboy are still looking for another quarterback since they only have rookie Dak Prescott and second-year man Jameill Showers on the roster following the injury to Tony Romo. According to the latest NFL rumors, there are many options for the Cowboys including Mark Sanchez of the Denver Broncos.

Dak Prescott will be the starter heading into the season with Jameill Showers being the backup. However, the team still needs another QB just in case Showers, or even Prescott, goes down with an injury.

According to, the Broncos offered Sanchez to the Cowboys in exchange for a late-round draft pick earlier this week. Denver general manager has been shopping the veteran QB to many teams since they named Trevor Siemian as the starter.

NFL rumors in Dallas imply that the Cowboys do not want to acquire Sanchez’s $4.5 salary and part ways with a draft pick. If the Broncos can’t find a trade partner, they will likely release Sanchez and the Cowboys could have renewed interest.

On the other hand, the Minnesota Vikings are also one of the suitors for Sanchez, per Bleacher Report. The Vikings lost starter Teddy Bridgewater to a gruesome knee injury that will keep him out the entire season, possibly longer.

Back in Dallas, Executive Vice President Stephen Jones revealed that they are serious in signing free agent QB, Austin Davis. He praised Davis in an interview with ESPN but NFL rumors imply that deal has not been agreed as of this writing.

“Obviously, he’s done some good things in this league and competed against us in a very competitive way. He’s done some good things. He’s obviously someone of interest to us right now,” Jones said.
