Cowboys continue to work out quarterbacks

The Cowboys insist they’re happy with Kellen Moore. If that’s the case, then it appears they’re not happy with what they have behind Dak Prescott and Moore.

The Cowboys worked out former Baylor quarterback Seth Russell this week.

“The workout went really, really well,” Russell told David Smoak of ESPN-Central Texas. “Scouts said they were going to send the film to the coaches and then they would let me know in 2-4 weeks, maybe sooner. They said I looked a lot stronger and had more zip on the ball. Legs looked really good and athletic.”

Russell went undrafted and unsigned, though he earned a tryout at the Raiders rookie minicamp last month.

The Cowboys didn’t draft a quarterback, though they kept an eye on University of Miami’s Brad Kaaya, who was selected by the Lions in the sixth round. Dallas signed rookie free agents Cooper Rush and Austin Appleby. Rush remains on the roster, but the Cowboys waived Appleby to claim Zac Dysert.

After getting Dysert, the Cowboys worked out Ryan Nassib. Now, it’s Russell.

  1. Cowboys will be 8-8, if they’re lucky this season.

    Fluke season last year, playoffs are a clear testimony of that.

    Eagles and Giants are the only real competitive teams in that division.

  2. lol…That is a very good idea, that they continue to do so! JG’s track record of coaching up q/bs, based on history, is mediocre at best! If Dak goes down, I can just hear the pleas for Romo to come back to help out…smh..As much as I would LOVE to see Tony under center, after the treatment he received, I hope he has a few choice words for JG!!!!!!!!! He is who I thought he was, when he was hired, after Wade was fired 😦 JG knew he was the heir apparent…hmmmm

  3. Eagles and Giants are the only Competitive teams in that division????

    This brainless comment from the mind of a 3rd grader is hilarious!!!!!…….Eagles finished in last place for 2 years in a row and lost their last 5 meetings with the Redskins,hardly my idea of competitive!!!!!

    They were one freak A-Rod play away from winning that game. A game they came back from after being way behind. A game they came back from whilst featuring a rookie QB in his first playoff game. But yeah OK.

    1. Vikings fan should never comment about a team that has 5 Super Bowl wins, ever.
    2. The Eagles, after winning their first 3, went 4-9 over their last 13. That’s competitive?
    3. The Giants did very little to upgrade the turnstiles in front of Manning.
    4. 2 points here-Dallas scored 31 points in that playoff game, and the secondary was never going to be much better than it was with those specific players that they let walk in F/A.
    5.-Finally and most important, you specifically, don’t know much about the NFL.

    What do you mean by “after the treatment he received”?

    It seems to me Romo was treated pretty well…..and he was replaced by a younger, healthier more reliable QB. Much like Drew Bledsoe was replaced by Tom Brady

    Well people will continue to say things like that because the Cowboys couldn’t with with what people are calling a top 10 QB, the best o-line in football, one of the top 3 RB’s in football against one of the worst defenses in all of football. 31 against the pass and you couldn’t win with top talent at QB, RB, O-line and a HOF TE.

    That’s why people will say such things.

  8. The only thing the Cowboys need to back up is a armored truck for all the money they make at AT&T.

    What is it like to live your whole life never seeing your team win a Super Bowl? That must be weird and deflating.
