Now that Tony Romo is out for the season, there are some real concerns about finding a successor (or at least a capable backup) for the Cowboys’ roster. The awful job that Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel have done are signs that the team hasn’t done a good job finding an insurance policy for Romo to this point. Here are the top five quarterbacks that the team could add through the draft or free agency for the next NFL betting season.
Lynch is a junior at the University of Memphis. Unusually tall for a quarterback at 6’7”, Lynch has worked wonders for the Tigers this year, leading them to an upset of Ole Miss and keeping them in contention for a potential playoff spot until their loss to the Naval Academy. For the season so far, he has gone 271 for 392 for 3,448 yards and 21 scores – and just three picks. According to several draft analysts, he could be the next Blake Bortles – a project who ends up doing quite well after some mentoring and seasoning.
