Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was impressed by Stephen McGee’s performance in the first half against the Dolphins.
“I think we have some things out of McGee tonight that are really encouraging,” he said in a television interview. “It's been vintage McGee. Other teams have shown interest in Stephen McGee. We know somebody thinks he's a pretty good ball player. We do, too.”
McGee completed eight of 15 passes for 119 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions in the first half. He led the Cowboys to a 20-6 lead and had a 79.6 passer rating.
Jones said the Cowboys have to think about McGee versus the 53rd player on the roster when cut-downs are made this week.
“If we think we can live with him or we do we think we need a third quarterback,” Jones said. “That will be something we'll go through tonight after the game, and we'll make a decision tomorrow."
