Cowboys owner Jerry Jones elaborated on the quarterback roster selections through his weekly radio interview Tuesday morning on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]:

Why Cooper Hurry over Garrett Gilbert and DiNucci?

Jones: ”His consistency. We have had him of system now going on three decades, this will be the third year. I just assume that he’s shown that he can operate the complete offense. And credit score to him, he experienced some hard opposition. People fellas did not slash him any slack. He’s had a whole lot of reps. All of our quarterbacks have due to the fact of the absence of Dak. All of those things make us feel real at ease here.”

Will you search to the waiver wire for a QB?

Jones: ”You’ve bought to suppose that with (Cooper’s) awareness of what we’re executing offensively, what we’re performing with the existing staff that we’re likely to be opening with … you’ve got to assume we have obtained a rather higher bar right here, in conditions of what’s the most efficient way to participate in if you did not have Dak. All of that claimed, it’s a substantial bar when you’ve received the qualifications in it that Cooper’s got.”
