Former Bengals’ QB agrees to terms with Dallas
Yesterday, the Dallas Cowboys announced they agreed to terms on a one-year deal with former Cincinnati Quarterback Andy Dalton. This means that Dalton will now be the fourth Quarterback on Dallas’ unofficial depth chart for 2019-2020. The other three QBs for the Cowboys are Dak Prescott, Cooper Rush, and recent seventh-round draft pick Ben DiNucci.
Dalton was released by the Bengals on Thursday and officially agreed to a contract with Dallas two days later. The longtime Cincinnati starter was released a couple of days after the Bengals selected QB Joe Burrow with the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Andy Dalton was born in Texas and played his college ball at TCU. After playing at TCU, Dalton was picked by the Bengals in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Before coming to Dallas, he had spent his entire nine-year career with the Bengals. During his tenure in Cincy, he started 133 games and threw for over 31000 yards and 204 Touchdowns.
It will be interesting to see how Dalton impacts the Dallas offense, or if he even gets a chance to get on the field. The Cowboys currently have their franchise tag on QB Dak Prescott and hope to sign him to a new deal before the July 15th deadline.
