The Dallas Cowboys only carried two quarterbacks on the roster, for a bulk of the season, last year in Tony Romo and Kyle Orton.
As cut down day draws closer for the boys they will have some decisions to make, particularly when it comes to having three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. A West Texas A&M product, Dustin Vaughn, is making his head coach, Jason Garrett, a former 3rd string QB himself, take a hard look at keeping him behind Romo and Weeden.
"I'm an advocate of three quarterbacks,” Garrett Said. “I was always an advocate of that, can't have enough of them."
Vaughn couldn’t agree more.
"It's my dream to be in the NFL," he said.
August 24th is the first round of roster cuts where teams must get down to 75 players, before final cut-downs come on August 30th. With the starters playing most of the game on Saturday night against the Dolphins, Vaughn will have limited time before the first roster cut, but should he make it through first cuts he should get a good long look in the final preseason game of the season.
"I mean any chance you get it's an opportunity,” Vaughn said, “It's either make or break this team."
