The Cowboys are targeting former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brooks Bollinger as their future No. 3 quarterback. So what do you think of Bollinger? Impressed by the 6-of-18 performance the other night against the Cowboys? He was part of the final cuts in Minnesota as the Vikes kept rookie draft pick John David Booty and veteran Gus Frerotte as backups to Tarvaris Jackson.
Little background the 28-year-old Brooks....he is in his 6th year and played the last two in Minnesota and his first three with the New York Jets. He has started 10 games in the NFL, including nine in 2005 with the Jets.
If the Cowboys sign him it wouldn't likely be until next week to avoid paying him the guaranteed salary due veterans by being on the season-opening roster.
Also, you have to think backup QB Brad Johnson is in the background giving an endorsement of Bollinger to the Cowboys. The two played together in Minnesota and were buddy-buddy after the game at Texas Stadium on Thursday night.
