Troy Aikman doesn’t believe the Dallas Cowboys should replace Tony Romo, but he does believe they should draft a quarterback this year.
“I like the way the Packers did it for all those years,” Aikman said, per NFL.com. “To bring a guy in essentially every season, whether you draft him in the fourth round or fifth round or third round, whatever it might be. I think there’s something to be said for that.”
“I don’t think they need another quarterback — make that clear — but because of Tony’s age they certainly have to start addressing who the guy is going to be who comes in after him, and if there’s a guy that they can pick up and maybe develop in the third or fourth round. I think that’s a real positive thing.”
I think Aikman makes a good point. Teams like the Giants have done the same thing over the past several years. Some times it’s a good idea to see if you can develop a late round quarterback into a starter.
