Cowboys Rumors: Dallas, QB Josh Freeman Nearing Deal?
The Dallas Cowboys are in a bit of a fix right now as they try to scramble for a quarterback. Kellen Moore suffered a broken right fibula at training camp and the word out right now is that Josh Freeman is on their radar.Advertisement
Moore was expected to become the backup quarterback for the Cowboys but the position is more sensitive than most would think. Tony Romo continues to be the starting QB for Dallas but his injury woes indicates that Jerry Jones may have to look for someone who does more than just a backup.
Freeman Not The Best Option?
Names have been mentioned and Josh Freeman is one of them. The problem is that while Freeman’s agent has offered his client to the Cowboys, it doesn’t appear that he is at the top of the list.
Worse, it looks like Freeman is not on the list of target players at all. An undisclosed source revealed that the Cowboys have no interest in Freeman and that the team is unlikely to follow that road.

If Not Josh Freeman Then Who?
The Bleacher Report mentioned several names that the Jones has his eyes on. That included Josh McCown of the Cleveland Browns and Mike Glennon of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
A trade with the Browns for McCown was allegedly discussed, but the team didn’t show much interest in dealing the second-stringer. On the part of Glennon, the update goes nowhere beyond discussions with the Buccaneers.
Nick Foles was another option. All that went down the drain when Foles opted to sign up with the Kansas City Chiefs, CBS Sports reported.
With their targets not likely to be feasible, the Cowboys may eventually reconsider their take on Freeman. If not, Jameill Showers and rookie Dak Prescott loom as the only options heading into the coming NFL season, USA Today reported.
