Another QB for Dallas?
By Tim Kavanagh
The Dallas Cowboys have had some success on offense during the Tony Romo era, but No. 9 has ultimately failed to lead the team to a Super Bowl each season of his career. Some believe that the team would be better off finding someone else.
Former Cowboys great (and current Fox Sports analyst) Troy Aikman isn't amongst that cohort. However, he does think it's time for the team to find and develop the successor to Romo.
"I don't think they need another quarterback, to make that clear, but because of Tony's age, they certainly have to start addressing who the guy is going to be that comes in after him," Aikman said during a chat on NFL.com, per ESPNDallas.com. "If there's a guy that they can pick up and maybe develop in the third, fourth round, I think that's a real positive thing for them."
The buzz on this year's group of draft-eligible QB prospects is that there isn't a surefire, Day One starter in the bunch (unlike last year's class). However, for teams looking a few years down the road (like the Cowboys), there are some interesting players that could be developed with the right coaching and the right organization. We'll see if Jerry Jones and his associates take Aikman's advice on this one.
