93.7 The Fan’s Colin Dunlap made the surprising suggestion on Thursday morning.
Jerry Jones should 100 percent call Ben Roethlisberger and gauge his interest about coming out of retirement.— Colin Dunlap (@colin_dunlap) September 15, 2022
Dallas is going to be without quarterback Dak Prescott for the next month or two (that timeline differs depending on whether or not you listen to Jerry Jones or medical professionals).
Prescott broke his right thumb in the Cowboys’ season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and had to have surgery. He’ll miss at least four weeks if not longer.
For now, Dallas’ plan is to roll with Cooper Rush at quarterback.
And I doubt that plan changes.
It’s hard to imagine that Roethlisberger or any other available quarterback would want to go to Dallas just to start for a few weeks. I also doubt anyone wants to go play behind the Cowboys’ porous offensive line.
Roethlisberger has indicated that he wasn’t necessarily ready to retire after this past season, but Pittsburgh was ready to enter a new era.
Even if that’s the case, it’s hard to see him wanting to go to that situation in Dallas.
And I can’t blame him.
I’d be shocked if Roethlisberger came out of retirement to play for the Cowboys or any other team for that matter.
