The Cowboys have been taking a look at some longshot QBs at rookie minicamp.

“It’s been definitely different,” said Barrett, who finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting in 2014. “I would say I’ve been at a couple of places. My longest stint was New Orleans when I first came on in 2018-19. Then a snapshot of camp in Seattle, went back to New Orleans in the 2019 season and towards the end of that season went to Pittsburgh for a week. Got signed on for the next season then COVID happened.”

Barrett was a talented quarterback at Ohio State, throwing for 9,434 yards with 104 touchdowns and 30 interceptions while completing 63.5% of his passes in four seasons. Barrett’s career was slowed by injuries and the play of his replacement Cardale Jones.

When Barrett finished his college career he was hoping to catch on with a NFL team for a full season. It hasn’t occurred, yet.

Davis spent six seasons in college with two schools, Memphis and Illinois State. He injured his knee while at Memphis and missed the entire 2016 season. He left Memphis after being the No. 2 in 2017 to play at Illinois State.
