In even the craziest of possible scenarios, there’s not a person closely connected to the NFL who would believe that the Dallas Cowboys might make a play for Kirk Cousins in free agency next month. That’s until we realize who is actually running the Cowboys. Sure VP Stephen Jones has some say about what happens with the franchise. But it’s still owner Jerry Jones who has final say. It’s in this that Pro Football Talk’s Charean Williams, who covered the Cowboys for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram for years, believes that America’s Team might actually enter the Cousins’ sweepstakes. “We’ve seen it so many times with his intrigue with quarterbacks. We saw it back with Johnny Manziel. He just gets in his head some of these quarterbacks that he falls in love with,” Williams noted. “I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a little love there for Kirk Cousins and is thinking about those down-the-field throws. Despite some struggles last season, Dak Prescott is still viewed as a franchise quarterback for the Cowboys. He’s under a rookie contract and under team control for a total of just $1.5 million over the next two seasons.
