Cowboys re-sign QB Cooper Rush to 2-year deal


DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Dallas Cowboys re-signed backup quarterback Cooper Rush to a two-year deal on Friday morning, according to multiple reports.

The deal is worth up to $6 million, with $2.75 million guaranteed next season.

For all intents and purposes, Rush saved the Cowboys season in 2022, taking over for an injured Dak Prescott - who was injured in a Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers - and going 4-1 as the starter.

Two of Rush's wins came in key divisional games against the Washington Commanders and the New York Giants, while the others were against the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Los Angeles Rams.

Rush's only loss as a starter came against the eventual NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles.

For the season, Rush finished completing 94 of 162 passes for 1,051 yards and five touchdowns with three interceptions, with all three interceptions coming against Philadelphia.
