“Will Grier Shines in Preseason Finale Despite Being Cut by Cowboys”
– Will Grier played the entire preseason finale for the Dallas Cowboys, even after being informed that he would be cut from the team.
– Grier had an impressive performance, contributing to four touchdowns in a 31-16 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. He threw for 305 yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing for 54 yards and two more scores.
In his audition tape, Grier showcased his skills and potential, despite knowing that he won’t be staying with the Cowboys. The team recently acquired Trey Lance in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers, making Grier expendable. However, the Cowboys are giving him an opportunity to display his abilities to other NFL teams before the regular season begins.
During the preseason, Grier has been sharing quarterback responsibilities with Cooper Rush, as Dak Prescott has been sitting out. Grier has completed 71.4% of his passes for 335 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He has also been sacked six times and has a passer rating of 86.7. In comparison, Rush has completed 73.1% of his passes, with one touchdown, no interceptions, and a passer rating of 104.5.
Despite limited regular season experience, with only two games played during his rookie season, Grier is determined to make an impact in the NFL. His performance in the preseason finale demonstrated his potential as a quarterback, and he hopes to attract interest from other teams.
