The Dallas Cowboys seemingly have their franchise quarterback under center. Dak Prescott might have struggled to an extent as a sophomore last season. Given that Ezekiel Elliott was suspended for six games, this isn’t too much of a surprise.
It also doesn’t necessarily make the Cowboys think any less of a quarterback in Prescott who was out here breaking records as a rookie back in 2016.
The former USC star might prove to be an upgrade on Henne as an insurance policy, but he’s unlikely to pose much of a threat to Bortles’ starting job.
We are excited about the opportunity to add Cody as depth to our quarterback position, Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said in a statement. Despite being just 24 years old, Cody has already seen NFL game action and was very effective as a rookie in 2016, showing accuracy and efficiency in posting a quarterback rating of 90-plus.
From our research and through getting to know Cody during the draft process, we know he is a smart, tough and competitive young man and we expect him to be a great addition to our quarterback and offensive meeting rooms.
The 32 teams make their individual decisions on the players that they think are going to best help their franchises. Those are decisions that they have to make. They do that every day. They do that with the best interest of winning and putting the best franchises together. And they’ll make those decisions. I’m not directly involved with those.
On the progress in the sale of the Carolina Panthers:
The sale process is moving along. I’ve talked to Jerry (Richardson) as well as leadership team about that process. It’s moving along with unprecedented interest and we’re excited by that. And I would expect that they will come to a conclusion sometime so that, the potential is and the hope is that we could be able to vote as a league in May.
