Reports about the Dallas Cowboys roster movement this offseason is gaining some attention as of late. With Tony Romo's situation with the team is still uncertain, the Cowboys reportedly are now looking to have a replacement for him this coming season. Latest news is saying that they are considering Colin Kaepernick as one potential target on quarterback spot.
The Dallas Cowboys had a spectacular performance last season. They were able to enter the playoffs by virtue of a 13-3 win-loss record and clinching the number one seed of the NFC division. However, they were booted out by the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional playoffs ending their amazing run.
On the other hand, Colin Kaepernick has been in many controversies last season. It all started when he began the national anthem protest where he shows his objection about the social injustice to minorities in the United States. He was also criticized for letting the San Francisco 49ers had an awful 2-14 record, the worst for the team the past twelve seasons. Now, he is allegedly being targeted by the Dallas Cowboys this offseason.
According to The Landry Hat, there are many reasons why the Dallas Cowboys should consider of getting the services of Colin Kaepernick as a backup quarterback next season. With a notion that Tony Romo might be traded or retire, it is imperative for the Cowboys to think the possibilities that they will only have two quarterbacks on their roster.
Sans Tony Romo, the Dallas Cowboys will only have incoming sophomore Dak Prescott and unproven Kellen Moore in their quarterback depth chart. And having a veteran quarterback like Colin Kaepernick will be a perfect safety net for the Cowboys if ever Prescott or Moore goes down with an injury. Though there are other potential targets for the Cowboys like Jay Cutler or Ryan Fitzpatrick, Kaepernick is still the best available signal caller for them.
In six seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick has thrown 12,271 yards for 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. It can also be recalled that Kaepernick leads the 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance in 2012 after the team missed it for 18 years. Though he brings a baggage of controversies, many still believed Kaepernick could somehow boost the QB spot of the Dallas Cowboys.
Will the Dallas Cowboys be able to consider of adding Colin Kaepernick?
