Cowboys release Kellen Moore, leaving undrafted Cooper Rush as likely backup QB

Cowboys release Kellen Moore, leaving undrafted Cooper Rush as likely backup QB”

When the 2016 National Football League season started, #Kellen Moore was supposed to be the backup quarterback to Tony Romo while rookie Dak Prescott was just looking to attract some notice. That helped open the door for fourth-round pick Dak Prescott to emerge and eventually land the starting job after Tony Romo was injured.

One of the more intriguing battles throughout the preseason was the battle between Kellen Moore and Cooper Rush for the backup quarterback spot behind Dak Prescott. Moore had his first National Football League regular-season playing time that year.

He completed 38 of 51 passes for 398 yards with six touchdowns.

Rush will make the Cowboys' final roster.

But Rush would also have a nice game that evening, throwing for 87 yards and a score in his professional debut.

To catch Dallas Cowboys fans up, Cooper Rush played in college for the Central Michigan Chippewas. The former four-year starter out of Central Michigan continued to post wonderful performances with each preseason outing, while Moore did quite the opposite. He also had 55 interceptions and completed 62 percent of his passes. After three seasons with the Lions, he joined the Cowboys in 2015. In turn, Moore had a completion rate of 54.2%, passing for 392 yards, one touchdown and one interception in that same span.

The Cowboys elected to bring Moore back this offseason and didn't add a veteran quarterback to challenge him for the backup role.
