Nick Wright: Cowboys ‘desperate’ enough for Jimmy G trade originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Prescott was injured in the fourth quarter when he hit Shaq Barrett's hand while throwing a pass. ESPN NFL Nation reporter Todd Archer reported on Monday that Prescott is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, citing multiple sources.
Nick Wright, a co-host on Fox Sports 1's "First Things First," believes the Cowboys are ‘desperate’ enough to explore a trade that would see the 49ers send Garoppolo to Dallas.
“The question for today is a simple one: Are the Cowboys going to be desperate enough to trade for Jimmy G?” Wright tweeted on Monday. “My guess is they are & they get him for a mid-round, conditional pick.”
Despite the rumors connecting the Cowboys to the 49ers’ veteran quarterback, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is all-in on their current backup Cooper Rush.
“He can play at a level that we can win ball games,” Jones told Jori Epstein of USA TODAY Sports. “The main thing about him as a backup quarterback is we didn’t have to alter the offense to have him.
“That’s a good thing to have continuity. That’s the main reason he won the job. Just count on him. He threw a couple of good balls out there.”
Dallas has playoff aspirations this 2022 NFL season. However, if the Cowboys opt to stick with Rush over putting together a trade proposal for Garoppolo, they might have to begin preparing for 2023.
