The Dallas Cowboys, due to multiple injuries, are yet again this week in need of a quarterback, and the Saints have just the one they could be looking for.
Four days ago, Nathan Beighle of Who Dat Dish wrote about the need Dallas has for Saints’ backup quarterback Jameis Winston in the news or Dak Prescott being injured and ruled out for the season with multiple leg injuries.
Well, this week the Dallas Cowboys find themselves in even deeper quarterback troubles. Andy Dalton took off for a run in the middle of the third quarter and began the sliding position when Joey Bostic of the Washington Football Team hit him.
Bostic’s hit was a direct helmet to helmet hit knocking Dalton’s head from his helmet to the ground and bouncing back. Dalton laid on the turf with almost a lifeless look. He was immediately carted off and entered into a massive concussion protocol.
It would be a perfect time for them to now bring Winston in.
The Saints signed Winston this offseason. Winston had many other options, but the NFL veteran chose to come to the Saints to take time and learn underneath of future Hall-of-Famer Drew Brees and head coach Sean Payton.
Knowing that would benefit him more than the money at this stage of his career was an extremely mature move by Winston. His realization might come to fruition with the recent woes by the Cowboys offense in search of a playoff birth.
The Cowboys have built a team this year that they should not be willing to give up. They already had Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup, but they added CeeDee Lamb in the draft. They also employ one of the best running backs in the league right now.
Because of this, it would be in the best interest of the Cowboys to put whatever the Saints are asking for behind them and pay for it. It would greatly influence the Cowboys season, and it would let them leave him in free agency again this season.
