Report: Cowboys 'intrigued' by Ohio State QB C.J. Stroud originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

Having a franchise quarterback in Dak Prescott isn't stopping the Dallas Cowboys from potentially pursuing another signal caller.

The Cowboys reportedly are "intrigued" by Ohio State star QB C.J. Stroud, according to Mike Fisher of Sports Illustrated.

"I don't know the 'how,''' the source said. "But (Dallas is) absolutely intrigued by Stroud.''

Prescott, who is making $31 million in 2023, enters the third year of a four-year deal with the Cowboys. His current cap number of $49.13 million will increase to $52.13 million next year.

Stroud along with Alabama's Bryce Young, are considered two of the top quarterback prospects in the upcoming draft.

In Stroud's senior year (2021-22), he threw for more than 8,000 yards and 85 touchdowns, becoming the school's first two-time Heisman Trophy finalist.
