Now Thorson has a new home. The Northwestern alumnus is reportedly signing to the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad.
The Cowboys currently only have two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster: Dak Prescott and Cooper Rush. That makes Thorson the third quarterback in their building.
Between the Cowboys signing Thorson and Washington claiming Wendell Smallwood on waivers, the Eagles’ NFC East rivals aren’t shying away from trying to gather insider info on them. I’m sure gaining intel on the Eagles isn’t the only motivation behind those moves but I’m also sure that factor can’t hurt.
If the Cowboys want to waste a practice squad spot on a quarterback who hasn’t show much worth developing, though, that’s their loss. We’ll see how long Thorson ends up sticking in Dallas.
