The Dallas Cowboys were forced to use a backup quarterback in 2022, so the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, is familiar with the challenges that the New York Jets are facing. On the other hand, this may indicate that New York will not be able to strike a deal on favorable terms with either of the Cowboys’ backup quarterbacks.
Zach Wilson was forced back into the offense after being benched for Aaron Rodgers after the quarterback for the Jets, Rodgers, suffered an Achilles injury on just his fourth snap with his new team. Now, it looks like New York will have to either trade for a quarterback or sign one in the free agent market.
Jones jumped on 105.3 The Fan to discuss the possibility of Cowboys quarterback Trey Lance or Cooper Rush becoming one of their potential reinforcements. The Fan sat down on September 12 for an interview and was questioned about the concept at that time. The answer is not an outright “no,” but he highlighted that they were valued assets and that it was doubtful that any of them would be involved in a relocation.
“I can’t even fathom what it would be like to engage in a transaction of that nature. But the facts are what they are, and they show that we might require Rush in a drama. In fact, we did that the year before. This is what we did the previous year. Jones was quoted as saying, “Boy, especially when you got all the promise we got, to compromise yourself with the depth at that position would be very unlikely,” and Jon Machota of The Athletic reported that Jones made these comments.
Jones expressed his general reaction to the team’s trip to MetLife Stadium and the 40-0 win against the New York Giants on September 10, in addition to declaring his stance on a possible deal involving the Jets involving a quarterback. Jones made his announcement during the Jets’ game against the Giants. After the accident, players and fans, as well as the NFL Players Union on September 13, voiced their dissatisfaction with the stadium’s artificial turf, while Jerry Jones stated that Cowboys players had no issues about the surface.
Having said that, the Dallas owner expressed his shock at the news of Rodgers’ injury and stated he felt bad for all of the team’s fans.
“Well, I apologize to everyone for being sick. Every person. Everyone who enjoys sports. According to what Jones remarked to 105.3 The Fan, “we are all sick about it.” “I don’t have anything that anybody else doesn’t have on the extent of his injury, but it just happened so suddenly and so quickly,” she said. “I don’t have anything that anybody else doesn’t have on the extent of his injury.”
It’s possible that Dallas avoided a potentially disastrous situation since they played the Giants during a storm rather than in the hours after it had passed. The Cowboys are familiar with the impact that an injury can have on a season because they were forced to play without their quarterback Dak Prescott for a number of weeks last year.
