Cowboys make decision on QB Trey Lance

Not exactly surprising.

In a move that wasn't exactly surprising, the Dallas Cowboys have declined to exercise the 5th year option on quarterback Trey Lance. 

The news was confirmed by Todd Archer of ESPN, who noted that the decision made by Cowboys brass wasn't unexpected. 

“Unsurprisingly, the Dallas Cowboys will decline to pick up the fifth-year option on quarterback Trey Lance, a source told ESPN,” writes Archer. “That decision was essentially made in August when the Cowboys acquired Lance from the San Francisco 49ers for a 2024 fourth-round pick. Had the Cowboys picked up the option, it would have cost $22.4 million, been fully guaranteed and been at odds with the club’s stated preference of keeping Dak Prescott after 2024.

Lance was acquired from the rival San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a mid-round draft pick.
