Rush and Dallas Attraction
Neither the Mavs nor Rush are big-name players, so fans of each team may be unfamiliar with the opposing players. Rush is entering his sixth season and reaching his athletic peak at 28, while Dallas is entering his third NFL season at 23.
Rush’s appeal centers on his first and only NFL starter.As an undrafted free agent in the 2017 offseason, he Signed rookie contract with Dallas And only appeared in five games, with no starters until 2020.
Prescott’s injury in 2021 gives Rush a chance against the Vikings in Week 8. His impressive starting debut, which included a 92.2 quarterback rating, gave the Cowboys a 20-16 victory.
On the other hand, DeeJay Dallas’ appeal centers on his special team ability as a returner, but he’s also another potential weapon in the Cowboys’ offense. 2020 fourth-round pick described as ‘slippery’ NFL.com’s draft analysishe’s as versatile as an offensive player in the NFL.
Dallas combined for 490 yards and five touchdowns between his rushing and receiving ability. Last year, he averaged 3.7 yards per carry, 6.4 yards per catch and 23.2 yards per return.
Why the trade worked for the Cowboys and Seahawks
In early May, Dallas Morning News reporter Michael Galken reported that McCarthy made it clear, Cowboys Need to add a kickback and say “player acquisition” never stops.
“CeeDee Lamb up to the starting wing. Cedric Wilson on the Dolphins. So, who’s going to be the Cowboys’ return in 2022?” Gehlken tweeted on May 13. ‘Mike McCarthy: ‘As Stephen’ [Jones] It’s been said, it’s true, that player acquisition never stops. This is definitely a question we have to get answered. ‘”
Dallas could be that returner while also playing a secondary role on offense. With Greer and Dinucci both on the roster, Dallas will still be in contention for the backup quarterback spot. Despite only 97 pass attempts between Greer and Dinucci, the Cowboys seem to think they can be a worthy backup.
Smith is a veteran in the league, but his ceiling has long been established as a backup. Rock can do well in his new home, but it remains unproven. Because Seattle has yet to find a team quarterback, Rush may become more attractive.
