Dallas Cowboys Release Young QB

Will Grier was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in 2019, and while he wasn't expected to be the starter right off the bat, many saw him as a future starter within the Panthers organization, but in his rookie year he struggled in the two starts he was given, with a 0:4 TD:INT ratio.

He then moved on to the Dallas Cowboys, and with Dak Prescott there, he was only fighting for the backup job, but after struggling through a groin injury throughout the pre-season, the Cowboys decided to waive him. It's more likely than not that the former West Virginia QB will be back on the Cowboys practice squad this season, but for right now, it's a tough break for a talented young QB who just hasn't found his spot in the league yet. 

An 87:23 TD:INT ration with almost 9,000 passing yards in three years in college is certainly impressive, and he impressed the Dallas coaching staff in camp, but just not enough to make the team right now, but if an injury occurs to any backup QB this year, expect Grier to be in play with Dallas, or potentially any other team in need of a solid backup.
