The preseason is done. We’ve seen the Dallas Cowboys’ plan for a backup quarterback in Cooper Rush. We’ve seen the runners-up in Ben DiNucci and Garrett Gilbert.
Welcome to the Daily Blitz by DSP Media in partnership with CowboysSI.com.
Cam Newton was surprisingly released by the New England Patriots on Tuesday, beginning the Mac Jones era in Foxboro, Massachusetts.
Does Cam have anything left? If he’s not good enough for New England why would he be good enough for Dallas?
Newton obviously struggled last season throwing for only 2,657 yards (24th in the NFL), a 65.8% completion percentage (18th), 7.2 yards per attempt (20th), and just 177.1 yards per game (34th). Add to that eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions on the year, and it’s clear Newton was not his old productive self.
But maybe the Cowboys don’t need him to be the old Cam. Maybe they just need someone with a similar skill set to current starting quarterback Dak Prescott so the offense doesn’t have to change much in a short-term situation where Newton might have to play.
Maybe they just need someone who still has legs and can extend plays to keep opposing defenses honest, and who can get the ball to any one of the trio of outstanding wide receivers he has to pick from.
Is Cam that guy? Let’s discuss!
