Brett Hundley leaves Cowboys workout with no deal imminent

The journey for the Dallas Cowboys to find the proper backup for Dak Prescott has picked up lately. Two weeks ago, they brought in Jeff Driskel for a visit but the six-year veteran left without putting a pen to paper on a deal. Brett Hundley, who backed up Aaron Rodgers for three seasons under Mike McCarthy during his days with the Green Bay Packers, was scheduled to come in for a visit this week with a shot at a reunion with his old coach.

Even though Hundley’s workout went well, it doesn’t appear he’ll be putting a star on his helmet, at least not at the moment. According to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News, Hundley will leave Dallas without a deal.

Hundley has only registered 1,902 yards in his first five seasons and has bounced around between three different teams. If nothing does materialize from this situation, the Cowboys will be left to decide if Garrett Gilbert, Cooper Rush or Ben DiNucci can win the backup role, if they don’t feel any other veterans will be worthy of a look.

Gilbert would likely have the lead if it comes down to what’s currently on the roster. Against the then-undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers last season, his 243-yard performance nearly pulled off the Week 9 upset and was by far the best outing of the three.
