The Dallas Cowboys sign Andy Dalton to one year worth p to $7 million. The Bengals just released their franchise quarterback a few days prior. Andy Dalton signing with Dallas will definitely create some talk seeing the ongoing contract situation with Dak. Dalton heads back to Texas where he was a star quarterback for the Red Raiders. Before being selected by the Bengals in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft, Dalton played at TCU in Fort Worth, Texas. He lives in Dallas and will not have to move his family during an offseason that has been made uncertain by the coronavirus pandemic. While many thought New England or Jacksonville would be his next destination. Dalton would’ve had a great chance at starting for those teams, but it came down to him choosing family.
Dalton was set to earn $17.7 million in the final season of a six-year, $96 million contract. In nine seasons with the Bengals, Dalton had a 70-61-2 record and helped them reach the postseason in each of his first five seasons, but he was unable to win a playoff game. He holds the franchise record for touchdown passes with 204 and is second in passing yards (31,594), but he was benched after an 0-8 start to the 2019 season. The addition of Dalton does not affect the Cowboys’ feelings toward Prescott, who was given the exclusive franchise tag in March at a cost of $31.4 million. The Cowboys have wanted to sign Prescott to a multiyear contract since last offseason but have not been able to come to terms on a deal that would make him one of the highest-paid — if not the highest-paid — quarterbacks in the NFL.
