NFL Rumors: Dallas Cowboys Eyeing Nick Foles?

The Dallas Cowboys could use someone like Nick Foles on the roster though team owner Jerry Jones is already contented with what they have.


Foles was recently cut by the Los Angeles Rams after which word came out that the Cowboys may be considering the 2013 Pro Bowl quarterback. Apparently, those were nothing more than talk with Jones claiming he is already happy with his string of players at the position.

Foles is a veteran player who could be a reliable backup. However, Jones is sticking with Kellen Moore as the team’s backup.

“Foles isn’t an option,” the Cowboys owner and general manager said. “We wouldn’t get him any snaps. We got four that are going to get the snaps.”

The four snaps Jones was referring to were Tony Romo, Moore, Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers. The Cowboys owner also bared that he knows Foles but prefers to stick with Moore as his guy.

No More Room In Dallas?

With four quarterbacks on the roster, Foles will technically be a useless addition. Priority will obviously go to the regulars, which means Foles may need to look for another team in need of a quarterback.

Foles joined the Rams last season via a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles for Sam Bradford. He did start the first nine games before being replaced by Case Keenum.

Broncos Not Interested in Foles

A team that could use some veteran quarterbacking are the Denver Broncos. Mark Sanchez is the current starter with Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch alternating. Like Jones, however, coach Gary Kubiak said in a radio interview that the Broncos are not interested in adding Foles to their roster.

“Obviously, I got respect for Nick, he’s played very well in this league. But we’ve been set, we know which direction we’re heading and it’s time to go compete,” said Kubiak via

As previously reported, Kubiak seems content with Sanchez showing at training camp. It remains to be seen if he can duplicate the quarterbacking Peyton Manning did before announcing his retirement.
