The Dallas Cowboys are set at the quarterback position with Dak Prescott under contract, along with backup Cooper Rush having been brought back. 

However, could they be consider an additional reinforcement? Don't be surprised to see it happen, according to popular Cowboys aggregate fan website Blogging The Boys. Author Jess Haynie opined that the Cowboys could be considering quarterback Carson Wentz to compete for the backup job behind Prescott with Rush. 

A brief summation of their reasoning: 

1. NFC East Familiarity

"Wentz started with the Philadelphia Eagles and was there for five seasons, starting every game he played in. After a one-year stint in Indianapolis, he then signed with the Washington Commanders for 2022. So not only does he know those two franchises, but obviously he’s also logged plenty of time competing against the New York Giants and the Cowboys."

2. Talent  

"It wasn’t that long ago that Wentz was playing MVP-worthy ball for the Eagles. We certainly haven’t seen that version of him consistently in a while, but Wentz still posted a 94.6 passer rating with the Colts in 2021. You still see him do things in games, even last year with Washington, that only a handful of NFL quarterbacks are capable of with his pocket movement and throws on the run."

3. Head coach Mike McCarthy

"This one goes hand-in-hand with the point on talent. Wentz’s style a gunslinger with a hero-ball complex is something McCarthy knows very well from his days in Green Bay. Both Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers were these types of players, albeit more successful than Wentz, and that would make McCarthy an interesting coach (and play-caller now) for him if he ever did have to play."

Cowboys fans, how would you like to see Jerry Jones and company make Wentz an offer to compete for the full time backup position in Dallas?
