Cowboys Expected to Cut Quarterback Following Trey Lance Trade
The Dallas Cowboys now have four quarterbacks on the roster thanks to a stunning deal with the San Francisco 49ers for Trey Lance, but this will not last long as Will Grier is slated to be cut in the coming days.
Given Cooper Rush's recent performance when Dak Prescott was out in 2022,
the signing of Lance sets up an intriguing long-term duel for the backup quarterback spot.
"Grier is absolutely the odd man out," Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News wrote on August 25, 2023.
Grier battled Rush for the backup job during the 2022 training camp, but the quarterback has had limited opportunity to advance since last August.
Dallas is likely to give Grier a chance to impress other clubs during the team's final preseason game against the Raiders on August 26.
"Grier will be cut in the days ahead," Gehlken continued. "However, Grier is expected to play the entire exhibition game on Saturday, directing a Cowboys offense for the final time."
During a frantic weekend, thirty-one other NFL clubs will analyze the game tape he produces and the composure he displays.
